So, you’ve booked your holiday accommodation, settled in, and prepared to head out on the town to explore. Now, you see that it’s raining cats and dogs, and you can’t get out to do any of the amazing things you wanted to. What do you do to still enjoy your holiday accommodation despite the rain?
There are quite a few things you can do, and to help you have a better holiday, we’re going to tell you the best ways to enjoy your holiday accommodation when it’s raining, now.
1: Enjoy it as a Luxury Retreat
You paid a pretty decent price for your holiday accommodation, and let’s be honest. You’re probably using it as a place to rest on most days. Why not take a rainy day to truly enjoy your investment?
Holiday accommodation is a luxury. You have a fully furnished apartment with things you might not even have at your house. Cook a delicious meal, look for a movie on your favorite streaming service or channel and enjoy the luxurious furniture. Some holiday accommodation options come with fancy tubs. Light a few candles and relax.
Every day doesn’t have to be a huge journey. Embrace a rainy day as the perfect way to truly relax on your holiday.
2: Try the Nearby Spots
When you travel, you probably tend to look for exciting, well-known locations further away from your holiday accommodation. Unfortunately, you probably miss a lot of the things right down the street.
If it’s raining, do a quick Google search of your street, and look at what’s in your immediate vicinity. Yeah, you might have to quickly jog through the rain for a few seconds, but you might just find that hole-in-a-wall restaurant that makes your mouth tingle, or you might find a mom-and-pop store with unique souvenirs for you to bring home when it’s all said and done.
Don’t get so caught up in the well-known tourist attractions. If it’s a day that forces you to stay near your holiday accommodation, use it as an opportunity to find the places locals love.
3: Try the Local Cuisine
You’re stuck in your holiday accommodation, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit around and miss out on good food. Many restaurants in every major city offer delivery, and there are services available online that will pick up food from restaurants that don’t.
If you’re stuck in the house, use delivery services to bring the local cuisine to you. Order from spots the locals rave about in reviews and enjoy a hot, well-made, dish that you can’t get back home.
For a more affordable option, drop by a petrol station on one of the good days. Buy a bunch of local snacks that are new to you, and stash them in your holiday accommodation for a rainy day. When that day comes, try what the locals turn to when they want a quick snack.
Remember: It’s a Holiday
You’re on holiday. Even if you’re stuck in a serviced apartment for a day, you shouldn’t be stressing out. Make the most of it. After all, you did pay for it. A holiday is for relaxation, and there are numerous ways to do that in a holiday accommodation!
