How to deal with post travel blues

For people who love exploring and get their thrills from visiting new places, there's nothing worse than having the feeling of not having your next adventure booked. Holidays are wonderful while you're there, but as soon as you get off the plane or disembark the train, you're hit with the post-holiday blues of not knowing where to go next and when your next break will happen. Travel can literally be an escape from reality for some people, especially those who have hectic careers and rely heavily on adventure to keep their wellbeing in tact. This year has been particularly difficult for me, as I've not been able to travel due to saving for a mortgage, but I'm getting through it knowing that once I have a house I can begin planning my next trips. If you're struggling with the post travel blues, here's a few tricks to tide you over before your next adventure.

Plan your next adventure

If you have enough funds and holiday to take, there's no better time to start planning your next adventure than when you step off the plane.  Planning your next adventure early will give you plenty time to prepare and also give you something to look forward to.

Start a travel fund

Saving can be difficult, but when you set your mind to putting away cash for something specific it is a lot easier than you think. Starting a travel fund is a great way to get yourself excited about your next adventure and it is rewarding watching the money total up. Set yourself a realistic time limit and don't be too hard on yourself, then you will be able to reap the benefits.

Become a hometown tourist

When we're dreaming of faraway lands and exotic beaches, it is very easy to overlook what is right in front of us, but sometimes some of the best adventures we can have are right on our doorsteps. Spend time looking at your local tourist office to see what you can do locally and I bet you will be surprised.


Taking a day trip is a great way of travelling on a budget and in the UK we are lucky to have so many wonderful places on our doorstep.  You can discover some new cities, drive along the coastlines or take walks in many of the UK's national trust sites.

Take up a new hobby

Taking up a new hobby is a great way of learning new things and distracting your mind from thinking about travelling. Why not buy some cooking books and spend time learning about different world food? Or get artistic with some of your old holiday snaps.

Keep yourself busy

When we get bored we are more likely to get nostalgic about our holidays and start feeling down. Keeping yourself busy will keep your mind active and stop it from wandering on to things like holidays. Spend time with your friends or make the most of each weekend by going on long hikes near you.
