Spring break is just before the summer. That means the official pre-game of summer has finally arrived and it's the best thing to happen since Winter Break. Of course, school is great and educational and completely necessary and everything, but I honestly can't say that studying macroeconomics really gets me as excited as studying the map when planning a road trip. It's just how college works, some things are just more fun and here are a few ways to make this break one for the books.
One great way to make your break memorable is to try and step out of your squad's normal comfort zone and into something a little different, either activity-wise or as a location. It's hilarious to realize that half of the car can't properly read a map. Do you really need to anymore? Probably not, but it's a skill that might come in handy when "The Walking Dead" becomes a real thing. It's also a great way to test yourself and see who you really are under pressure and with a bunch of friends. Traveling is easy, until everything goes wrong and it's either make the best of it or say goodbye to the rest of it.
If a road trip with adventure and a small level of comfort isn't your thing, pull a traditional. Head over to the nearest tourist location that half of your school is heading to and hope for a great group price. There's nothing wrong with prearranged vacation packages and easy group package sales when finances and planning are two things that take priority. I love having activities planned out in advance to make sure that there is at least one fun and memorable anchor activity within a vacation/spring break.
Okay, so this is for the low key planner in all of us, but go on an all out day adventure with the crew, whether it's going out to the roller-coaster theme park or to that hike in the mountains. Whenever a large group comes together the chances of a vacation that lasts more than one night pretty much becomes zero, if not even a little bit in the negative area. It's a trip that is hard to plan any other time of the year because no one in the group has the same school schedules and work loads- until now!
Whatever the trip, get it planned and get out there!
