We all work hard for our money. We go to bed early day by day in order to be rested the next morning and be able to stand up full of power and to go to work. Often there is only time for a small breakfast, or we grab something to eat on the road. When arriving at work, we welcome colleagues and go directly to our job. This is often very stressful and requires full concentration. We have a responsibility, need to achieve results and have to meet deadlines. A work shift usually takes eight hours, sometimes even longer. Then we make our way home and arrive in the evening. Often we cannot keep the works problems behind us and deal with them at dinner.
Now it’s almost time to sleep and we turn on the TV before we already have to lie down in order to get up early the next day. We live for our job, spend at least a large part of our time there and put a lot of energy and heart into it. Thus, it is only natural that we look forward to our very well-deserved vacation. But how to spend the holidays to gain a maximum of relaxation and enjoyment?
If you stay at home, you are dependent on the weather and to remain in the country to which you are bound in the working time is not a good idea. Due to frequent rain and low temperatures, the holidays can be spoiled pretty fast. Also everyone dreams of doing journeys and explore the world. Therefore, it is advisable to visit a foreign country, learn about the culture, enjoy the good weather and finally come to the relaxation that you deserve to get ages ago. But where to go? The typical holiday areas are totally overcrowded and the locals are avoiding these places since a long time. The few who remained there have jobs in the tourism niche and travelers are their source of income. They do not view you as a welcome guest. In addition, many places offer nothing new and have become barren and monotonous over time.
So if you want to spend your short vacation time wisely, you should look for the unknown and chase your dreams of exploring the world. The black continent, Africa, still is totally unknown to most of us and features many surprises that can not be found anywhere else.
