Book the Perfect Vacation
Book the Perfect Vacation

With Cabin Fever really beginning to set in, researchers say they’ve developed a formula for booking the perfect vacation. The idea balances two theories– one of “anticipation” and one of “expected memories.”┬áTo get the maximum value out of a vacation you should book at least 120 days in advance, and plan at least one unique activity per day of the trip. So a vacation with 98 percent value would be: “Eight days sailing around the Greek island, relaxing on beaches, swimming in the sea, visiting villages and tasting the local cuisine along the way, booked a year in advance.” They had me at Greek Island, how about you? After hearing what temperatures will be like tonight and over the next few days, I’m ready to leave tomorrow!!
