New Delhi [India], September 7 (ANI/Mediawire): Let's face it. The once attractive 'work from home' option we all lusted after has lost its charm as the world shuttered down in the wake of the pandemic.
It forced us to forego vacations, cancel re-unions and postpone celebrations. Come September, however, there is a strong undercurrent of hope, as we start pulling out our dreams from the dusty corners of our minds and get busy with setting our lives back on track.
As the world adapts to the 'new normal', new exciting options are emerging. Even as we juggle endless work calls along with mundane household chores, there's news of new ventures being launched. People beginning to gear up for the festive season, ahead with transport within cities and states turning smoother.
Luxurious long vacations may still be off the list, but just because you can't get on a plane doesn't mean you have to stay at home! Perhaps it is time to take off for a mini holiday to one of your favorite getaway haunts within the city or on the outskirts. Sit back in the lap of luxury, celebrate a spot of nature, indulge in your favorite sport and tantalize your taste buds with some personalized gastronomical delights over a long weekend. A staycation might just be what you need!
