Hands up: who else is addicted to weekend getaways?
We all yearn for utter escapism from time to time, right, and there’s something powerful about breaking up our monotonous weekly routines with micro-adventure. Just think about the last time you woke up somewhere different: the sense of anticipation for the day ahead, the feeling of contentment as you allowed yourself to unwind, and the satisfying exhaustion from a commitment-free day in the fresh air.
After moving to Germany I was excited about weekend trips to explore the country, but I didn’t know where to begin: I wanted to go somewhere special that didn’t break the bank. I got bored of scrolling, then filtering, then auto-translating, then scrolling, then looking at a map, hoping I’d stumble upon a hidden gem. It was time-consuming and I lost all motivation to go away.
