When people speak of travel, they do only of its flattering facets most of the time. Travel is fulfilling. Travel is eye-opening. Travel is liberating. Very few people acknowledge the fact that it’s a tedious and tiring experience as well. Fortunately, there’s a thing called “hotel staycation” that brings balance to the way people do their getaways. It’s much like travelling, as you are away from home, but relaxed enough to make you feel that you’re on a vacation.
