How to Survive Those 'Last Day of Vacation' Blues
All good things must come to an end and my least favorite phrase to hear on vacation, "Tomorrow is our last day" was spoken.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a nester and I love being at home, but once we settled into our luxurious suite, adjusted to the pace of resort life and getting spoiled -- by gourmet food, fruity drinks, and pampering spa services -- as well as being catered to at our every whim, it is hard to say goodbye to our new friends at Secrets Papagayo.
As we said goodbye to our suite at Secrets Papagayo, at 3 am, the cheerful gold cart driver picked us up. He was definitely more cheerful than we were. 3 flights, a missed connection and an hour and 45-minute drive later, we arrived home late last night from our first trip to Central America.
I'm missing the balmy, fragrant breezes and the lap of the waves on the beach from Costa Rica, but it is good to be home.
My cure for the last day of vacation blues is to ALWAYS start dreaming of, and planning, your next getaway. It is a simple, but surefire, way to keep the wanderlust vibe alive and well.
