One of the first things that we start to discuss when making vacation plans with clients is the level of comfort they expect when they travel. It doesn’t take long to realize that 99% of us want to be pampered and taken care of more while we travel than we expect while we’re home.
I don’t remember the last time I had a consultation with a client who said that they wouldn’t mind going on a vacation and having the accommodations be a step down from what they are used to at home, didn’t mind cleaning their own room or villa each day, wanted to cook all of their meals and be able to do all of their laundry. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like much of a vacation to me! Certainly there are situations where you might want to have a nice quiet evening in while you vacation, or you might want to do a load of laundry if you are gone for more than a few weeks, but we don’t necessarily want to compromise on the level of comfort we’ve become accustomed to in our every day lives.
There are plenty of mundane tasks while we are home to keep us going. When we do get the rare time away to reconnect as a family and explore new things together it’s nice to know that all of the details have been taken care of, that you don’t need to worry about who’s cooking dinner or who’s going to do the dishes. You’ve got extra time to discuss the sites you visited during the day or extra time to linger in the morning before you set out to explore new lands.
I remember when my daughter told me that the best part of a vacation was “all of us spending time together” which surprised me, since we do a lot of activities together as a family. When I probed a bit deeper what she really meant was that we spent all day together, just the three of us, no yard work, no house work, no cell phones, no checking social media or email. Just us, making memories together.
