Spring Break is fast approaching. Our Spring Break falls in April, right around Easter. If you haven't already planned your week, here are some ideas to help your Spring Break experience be more enjoyable especially if your loved one is far from home.
Getting through a deployment is tough. It is stressful and challenging. It can also be a time you rise up and embrace the challenge. You don't have to "survive" the experience, it is okay to make the most of the time and that includes getting out and exploring your area. Maybe this means traveling to place you have never been to before. You don't have to wait till your spouse comes home to travel. Do talk over what your plans are and get his / her input. Share the pictures and videos with them and in the end just know if you take the time to take of yourself and give yourself a much needed break, you'll be better able to care for your family. As the flight attendant tells us on the plane when the oxygen masks drop, "please place the oxygen mask over yourself first and then your young child."
Happy Traveling. Share your Spring Break travel stories; we want to hear from you!
