Maybe it’s just a day to yourself that you need? I spent an afternoon in the city shopping on my own recently. It’s not something I do often. Just being able to stop and look at whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, to be on my own, was enough. I had time to indulge in a free hand massage – something I wouldn’t do if I were with someone else.
If it’s really a get out of town escape you need, take a weekend. Two days or more is sometimes required to recharge your batteries. Escaping from your normal environment is great on it’s own. Add in sleeping in different bed (and actually sleeping), trying a new restaurant, seeing something you’ve never explored before – priceless.
