With lockdowns prevailing and borders closed, it’s time to investigate how to holiday at home in style.
As we spend more time at home in the current pandemic, we are searching for ways to upscale our leisure time without having to leave home.
And with border closures stretching as far as the planning eye can see, we take a look at a few small things that will help you and your family to enjoy holiday time in your own backyard.
HAVE FUN OUTSIDE
With a DreamCourts multi-court or personalised backyard basketball court you can play a ClubMed™ variety of games without ever leaving home. Basketball, Tennis, Soccer and Volleyball or perhaps “Cocktails and Quoits”. Or for the littlies, create an obstacle course or design your very own skate park – most anything is possible on our quick-drying, shock absorbent surface.
No longer a dust-ridden vestige of Christmas, festive lights have woven their way into our hearts and backyards for some years now. A pergola or window frame offer the perfect setting or simply adhesive hooked to the wall where you eat your meals. String lights can transform your family dining experience from ‘meh’ to Mediterranean.
SPA-UP YOUR BATHROOM
Candles, bathbombs and a playlist are all you need to transform your morning workspace into a tranquil retreat. Book a time in with your favourite household friend (yes that includes a canine buddy) and shut out the rest of the world while soaking your cares away. Pop on a facemask and you will emerge as if from the most sublime beachside retreat (well at least you’ll be clean).
TAKE A BREAK FROM LIFE
Make sure you set time aside for your Holiday at Home – even if it’s only 24hrs. Plan how you will spend the time, fill your fridge for a buffet breakfast and make sure there’s at least one outdoor activity and one period of rest for all the family. Holidays have never been so simple!
