An Intro to the Eight Day Vacay

Lapland, Finland (Last Updated On: May 10, 2019)

To my nursing colleagues out there (and for any other of you that have eight days to spare)…

I am starting a brand NEW series on my blog called “The Eight Day Vacay”.  The point of this series is to encourage you to take advantage of your time off!  To utilize travel to prevent nurse burnout.  I can’t tell you how many of my other friends that work “9-5 office jobs” tell me that they wish they had my schedule instead.  So it’s time to start taking advantage!  You don’t want to look back on your life and realize that you let it pass you by…

This is mainly going to be aimed towards my hardworking co-workers (all of you lovely nurses) who deserve a vacation.  Since we *potentially* have eight days off in a row I will be posting trips that can be done in an eight-day span.  I will be posting once per month and ALL suggested trips will be ones that I have already taken, with modifications as I see fit.

This series will be aimed at encouraging you to take advantage of your eight-days off and see the world!  You could always take PTO as you please but these trips are designed to have you work the beginning shifts of week one and the end shifts of week two.

You can expect to see things such as flight information, transportation information, and hotel information.  Plus information on your destination – what to do, where to eat, where to drink.  I want this to be the ultimate guide so you can just book a ticket, pack your bags and go!  Without stressing.  We do enough of that at work.

*Note:  This can be for ALL you adventurous souls out there who need a quick and easy vacay!  While I am targeting nurses specifically, due to the nature of our scheduling, nobody is excluded in taking a much-needed and well-deserved holiday.*
