3 Great Excuses To Travel

When it comes to travel sometimes it can feel like too much of a luxury to spend money on.  Whether you have guilt associated with spending too much, or feel like you should be putting more important costs first, it can be tough to convince yourself to make the purchase.

However, sometimes all it takes is being able to rationalize a good reason for taking a trip.  You’ll be able to enjoy going on a vacation while also doing something productive and practical with your travel.  When it comes to the most reasonable excuses to go on a trip, here are the ones that are the most common.

Attending a Wedding

If you’ve ever received a destination wedding invite, you may have kindly sent your congratulations and politely declined.  Often we think having to buy a plane ticket to attend a wedding is outlandish. However, it’s worth considering that it may just be a great excuse to check out a new destination.

Often people have their weddings in a beautiful location like Mexico.  Attending the wedding only takes one day, and the rest of the trip you can spend lounging on the beach or checking out local sights.

Your friends or family will be delighted that you made it there to join them for their special day and you may even end up seeing old friends that you haven’t seen in years.

Going on a Business Trip

Having to travel for work is something that a lot of people have to do regularly.  They don’t enjoy it all the time because it can be exhausting.  However, if you play your cards right, and organize your trip correctly, you can integrate pleasure into your trip rather than just business.  

Ideally, you can organize your trip so that you get the work done in the beginning.  That way you get the work out of the way first, then you can move on to bigger and better things, like enjoying yourself and relaxing.

Scouting Out Schools

If you’re thinking about going to a college which is outside of your state, or you’re the parent of a teenager who will be going after high school, taking a trip to check out your top choices is a great excuse to travel.

Rather than choosing a school without ever having visited first, go ahead of time and feel out whether it’s the right fit for you.  Without going and really seeing it from the inside out, you can’t really be sure if it’s the place that you’re hoping it will be.

Exploring the campuses for a few days then enjoying the other sights around town can be a wonderful way to spend a trip.
