Sometimes making the transition from your holiday back to your normal everyday life can be a painful process to say the very least. What was once a two-week holiday that was looked forward to over many months is suddenly a memory that was over all too briefly.
The end of holiday blues is something that most people experience when they get back from their annual holiday and it can be tough to get back into the swing of things when all you want to do is go running and screaming back to your hotel, the pool and the all you can eat breakfast buffet!
If you want to make the trip home as less traumatic as possible then there is something that you can do in order to make sure that you keep the stress levels nice and low.
You can think about your journey back home from the airport and how you can ease yourself back into life gently.
If you have the luxury of a couple of days of annual leave at the end of your holiday then try to take these off and use them to settle into your usual routine. Get your holiday washing done slowly and take your time easing yourself back into the normal day-to-day tasks that you usually get done.
In the interests of easing yourself back into your normal life then you might want to think about how you are going to get to your house from the airport. Now the usual options are car, coach, train, taxi or bus. The latter two can be ruled out if you live quite far away from the airport as they will mean that you will either have to pay a small fortune in taxi fares or you will be required to make lots of changes on the bus route. Likewise if you live a couple of hours from where you are flying into then a coach might not be a great idea either (especially for those of you who are prone to travel sickness).
If you have a long journey home the easiest (and kindest) thing might be to book yourself into an airport hotel so that you can then drive or take the train home the next day relaxed and refreshed. There is nothing worse than having to drive home after a long flight.
If you do decide to drive to and back from the airport then you will need to make sure that you book yourself some appropriate Airport Parking. This will mean that you will be able to rest whilst you are away safe in the knowledge that you have left your car in a safe and secure place.
It does not matter which airport you are flying from most will offer good levels of parking. There is airport parking at most airports including Heathrow Parking, Gatwick Parking and Liverpool Airport Parking.
