We're all going on a Staycation.

All of a sudden Mr H was given two weeks holidays.

Over Easter.


Never happens.

So we decided to be normal people and go away for Easter. You know, grab a cabin by the sea, or a house in the hills but at the last minute everything is booked out, requires a seven night stay or costs the same price as a two week trip to Europe flying business class just to stay in a beach 'shack'

So we are having a Staycation.

We are tripping about town like tourists, eating out at lots of restaurants and cafes.

We will be seeing the sights and having delights anywhere considered a day trip or anywhere free accommodation is on the menu (hello, family)!

Then we return home each evening to our own comfy beds and fluffy slippers before finalising the fun of the next day.

Have you ever had a successful Staycation?


  1. I am in the middle of the Staycation from hell. I just keep thinking Bali in June, Bali in June xx

  2. free accom at our shack near the sea. Feel free to use and abuse us!

  3. Staycations are great - as long as you plan in advance and don't start the morning saying 'what will we do today?' Those days usually end up as nothingness. Hope it's been fun!

  4. I really want to try one of these staycations. They could be wonderfully relaxing, if well planned. Unfortunately, Mr Catch is the Dr Livingston of Brisbane and is not happy until we have driven eleventy billion kilometres from home to explore a valley or settle some natives or something. Enjoy...

  5. Sounds like bliss! I would love to do something like that. We lived on the South Coast of NSW for five years and I still don't know a thing about where we lived.
    Unfortunately, my hubs isn't a 'planner' and so days go by and we do nothing.
    I hope you had a great time and got to do some amazing things xo

  6. Staycations are our favourite type! We just love them, and do them often because we just don't have the money to go away every holidays!



Commenting brings amazing luck, you must try it and see how you go!
