What we've missed most about going on holiday
Spring is in the air, and we're counting down to our first holiday - we can't wait to experience all these again!
The holiday countdown
The holiday is booked, flight confirmations are in your email. Time to set that holiday countdown running. Bonus points if you screenshot it and post it on social - get the holiday envy started early.
Setting up your out of office
It's 5pm, it's Friday and you've had your out of office message ready to go since 9am. It's time to set it live, log off and smugly say goodbye to your co-workers. No zoom meetings for you for the next 2 weeks.
Getting up early to get to the airport
This may be the only time getting up at 4am is acceptable - and dare we say it fun. Whether you have an early flight to catch, or just a dad that is determined to get to the airport at 6am for a 3pm flight - there's something exciting about trying to quietly wheel your cases to the car whilst the rest of the world is still asleep.
Hoping no one realises your bag is definitely, maybe, probably too big for a cabin bag
Either you've tried to pack everything into your carry on luggage rather than having a checked bag - or you're that person who brings way too many snacks and books for the plane.
Getting on the plane and checking what movies are available
You're finally on the plane, what's the first thing you do? Check out what the in-flight movies are of course. You end up picking 5 movies you want to watch, then realise it's only a 3 hour flight. A close second is of course, checking the duty free magazine for products you definitely don't need and definitely won't buy.
Reading a book by the pool
Okay, now we know we've spent a year in our houses doing basically nothing, but it's no fun doing nothing when ALL you can do it nothing (and because BoJo told you to). So we're looking forward to doing nothing elsewhere for a change - preferably with more sun, waitress service and a pool.
When the heat hits you as you get off the plane
You're probably dressed in a hoodie, due to the previously mentioned 4am start. So you're definitely over dressed, and the moment the heat hits you as you step off the plane you're already daydreaming about the pool, the cold drinks and the swimwear.
Waiting for the lift to arrive in the freezing air-con when you're in your towel after a day at the pool
You've spent all day at the pool, you're lovely and warm. Now comes that freezing cold run back to your room. And of course the lift has literally never taken longer to arrive.
Trying new food and drink
Anyone else just miss not having to think about what to cook themselves 7 nights a week? Like seriously, why is it so difficult? We can't wait to sit in a restaurant again, with the added bonus of amazing new dishes to try. Unless of course you're one of those British people who seek out the 'local' British pub when you're abroad.
Choosing which photos to post on Instagram at the end of the day
I mean frankly, if you go on holiday and don't instagram it to make everyone at home jealous did you really even go on holiday? Bonus points for a IG story with a temperature sticker in it - reminding everyone just how HOT it is.
Room service and the minibar
You know it's overpriced, but it's just so convenient.
The good news is the wait is almost over, and we couldn't be any more ready to get away on holiday.
