Staycation!?

Until recently, I did not know that there existed a word called “Staycation“.

staycation
steɪˈkeɪʃ(ə)n/

noun

informal
  1. a holiday spent in one’s home country than abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions.

I learnt it at the school. Everyone (almost) have plans to go somewhere the day the school term ends. Names of places (mostly countries) were exchanged among the teachers and students. When some of us said that we weren’t going anywhere out of this country for this break, we were told that we were having a staycation instead of a vacation. I hope they are calling the holidays spent in a different part of the home country as vacation instead of staycation. If it is not, then it is rather rude.

Spending the holidays at home enjoying and not travelling long distance could be called a staycation. I am OK with that…(which is what I might be doing this term break) Staycation or vacation, I am planning to enjoy the break with some fun and learning and lots of much-needed rest. Oh! The Game of Thrones is gonna be there to give me company…Yay!!!

No mistakes yet

A HDR shot of a glorious sunrise which we had the pleasure of enjoying in Chennai Marina Beach without any crowd. My niece and nephew also joined us (even though they were pretty sleepy during the ride to the beach) but were so glad to have seen their first ever sunrise.
