If there’s one thing that rom-coms have affirmed our faith in, it’s the magical power of a surprise vacation to breathe life into a relationship that’s starting to feel just a little bit stale. After all, when it comes to romance, there are few things that whisper “love” the way whisking your partner away for a mid-month, relaxing weekend away from home, does. But we don't wish to generalise. You could be on the hunt for a weekend escape with your crazy bunch of best friends, or just looking to rejuvenate yourself by grabbing a few days of meaningful solitude. In any case, a staycation fits the bill for all! Especially when a global pandemic is still raging outside.
