One of the things that you’ll hear people say when they get stressed out about jobs, work, and family, is that they have to get away. And that’s not an unrealistic goal. But, once you put those words out to the universe, it’s a matter of questioning where are you going to get away to?

And there are some dreamy options as well as some more practical ones. For example, you could choose an island to get away to. Maybe you want to go on a cruise so that the feel of a ship going out to sea gives you that release. Perhaps you want to get away to a remote location and remove yourself from people. Or, maybe you can get away and go into an environment where you test your survival skills. All of these are options for people that want to separate themselves from chaos and stress.

Choose an Island

For many people, it is a fantasy to choose an island to travel to. The thing is, it’s probably not as expensive as you might think. With a little bit of research, you can even find out package deals and times of the year where you can go during off seasons where it’s quite reasonably priced. The important thing is not to make rash decisions, but instead plan it out as far in advance as possible so that you understand the variables concerning cost and timing.

Go on a Cruise

Another idea that many people have when it comes to the concept of getting away is to go on a cruise. When you walk up a plank or a ladder to get on a ship, and then you’re floating on an object in the water, and then you take off and start drifting into the ocean – that’s when the concept of getting away kicks in. In big enough cruise ships, you don’t lose any sense of normalcy and can have a fantastic luxury experience as well.

Pick a Remote Location

Another way to get out there and feel like you’re getting away is by picking a remote location to travel to. There are some considerations with this optional. If you go to remote areas, you may be lacking access to medical care or options to get back quickly. Make sure that enters into your equation.

Test Your Survival Skills

A final option when it comes to getting away will be if you want to create a situation of man versus nature. In other words, you go somewhere to test your survival skills. And you don’t need to be crazy about this. You can go on guided survival tours where an experienced person can show you the ropes along the way. But if you want to feel like you’re outside of your typical professional and family experience, focusing on survival will get you there quickly.
