Many countries are opening their borders, but if you want to travel internationally, there's still a lot that you have to do before your trip. Planning PCR-tests, filling in paperwork... it's a hassle! That's why many people -including us!- choose to travel in our own country. You might think "I've seen everything here before!" but we promise you: we're sure there's a lot still to discover. In this article, we give you three fun tips to enjoy a lovely holiday back home. 

1. Book a spa holiday

These last few years have been hard on us all. Maybe your body aches from working hard with protection gear, maybe you unknowingly 'store' stress in your body so you're wound tight. We feel like everyone deserves a lovely spa holiday where you can finally relax. You can opt for a fun city trip and choose a hotel that offers a spa package so you can relax for a few hours to a full day in the steam room, the sauna, the hot baths ... but if you truly want to relax: search for spa resorts, preferably in the countryside. Before you know it - you're sitting in a hot tub in the woods, enjoying the peace and quiet. Yes, that's what you call relaxing! 

2. Book a city trip in your own country

A staycation can be fun, but it's still your own city. But why not visit another city you might or might not have visited before, but visit the city like a tourist would do? Book a fun central hotel, look up the must-see sights and museums and make reservations for the coolest new restaurants. Google where the locals go: what's the newest cocktail bar that everyone's raving about? Is there a new museum exhibition that's trending on social media? Often there's so much to do... you'd forget you haven't even left the country! 

3. Go camping like when you were little

Do you remember how fun camping with your family was when you were little? Then round up your family and/or friends and go camping - back to basics. Going camping might not be luxurious, but it's often so much fun. We're sure you'll make memories for life! You can go camping with just a few friends, but you can also ask your entire friend group to join. Maybe you have some city-friends that claim they don't enjoy the outdoors ... so it might be super funny to see them in nature! 

Ask someone to borrow their tent, rent a van (Dutch: personenbus huren), fill it with your favorite people, and marshmallows to eat by the fire and you've just fixed an amazing low-cost holiday. The only cost (except for the food and drinks) you have is usually the van. Rent a big van, such as one for 9 people (Dutch: 9 persoons bus huren) so you can fit a lot of people and luggage in it. 

Have fun during your at-home holiday with these tips!
