Finding the work-life balance is only a weekend away…


Ah, work-life balance.  It sounds like a nice idea, but finding the work-life balance can sometimes feel like a bigger challenge than finishing the budget report due Friday when it’s Thursday evening.  Luckily, spring is upon us, and setting aside some time for a quick weekend getaway can provide the break you need to arrive back in the office Monday morning refreshed, ready to kick butt and perhaps even a little bit of a summer glow.

But now we’re back to that work-life balance question.  You’ve decided to reward yourself for all that hard work, but the idea of doing all the planning and research on where to go and how to get the best price is looming ahead, and that budget report is still glaring at you from your inbox.  Before you throw in the towel and succumb to another weekend wishing you’d set aside some time for yourself, take a look below.

Nowadys, there are sites galore touting that they offer the best prices for cheap flights and hotel deals.  But there is one site in particular that offers an all-for-one-and-one-for-all approach to the affordable vacation:

With Kayak, you can compare the top affordable sites all in one place, or sign up for notification emails, meaning that Kayak does the legwork for you.  I got to experience this convenience firsthand about a month ago. 

One of my best friends from college and I haven’t seen each other in over a year since I ditched my snow shovel for an umbrella and made the cross-country move from Maine to Seattle.  We have been talking about planning a little weekend reunion for months, but the planning always seemed to get lost in the chaos of life.  Then one of my friends signed up for Kayak’s notification emails, and started having fares shot to her for Memorial Day weekend.  Before we knew it, a price came up that caught her eye, she booked her flight, and now we are highly anticipating a sunny Memorial Day weekend, where we will be joined by noneother than Ms. Carrie Bradshaw for the release of Sex and the City II.  Who knew a reunion could be so simple?  I wonder where we’ll decide to go next . . .
