I have a hunch that most of you have taken least one vacation over the last three years. But how many of them have been around your own home?

Reflecting on this, I realize that there are so many places that I’ve yet to discover in my own backyard, inspiring me me to write about the staycation.

Now, don’t get me wrong – nothing compares to travelling the world and visiting far away places. With so many cities to see, it’s natural that we get excited about a trip to another country. However, is it possible that we take for granted the very places in which we live?

Is it possible that we take for granted the very places in which we live?

Last year, having found myself craving an experience, I decided to hop on a double decker.

This time though, I wasn’t in Europe. Or Australia. Or even the US.

I was in my hometown.

And I had a ton of fun.

So go ahead. Be a tourist in your own city. Go somewhere you’ve never been. You might be surprised what you’ll find.
