Thinking you’re not that spontaneous and reckon you need more persuading? Then read on…

You know it’s time you booked a trip if…

1. It’s only Monday and you’re desperate for a drink…

2. And Friday is the only day that you really feel alive.


3. You give yourself a little pep talk every morning knowing that your morning commute is going to be spent nestled under a man’s armpit.


4. When there is a guy ordering a grande extra hot skinny soy caramel latte with an extra espresso shot in front of you. And you’re waiting there and waiting. 3 minutes pass. Another 2 minutes pass. And. You’re waiting. And. The. Rage. Builds. And builds. And builds.


5. You can’t handle it when you recognise someone on your daily commute.


6. Your to-do-list resembles the first draft of a Stephen King novel.

7. You start spending what little money you have left on lottery tickets.

8. Co-workers give you sympathetic looks and keep asking you if you’re ok, because you just look so miserable.


9. The closest you’ve gotten to a beach recently is listening to the Ocean Waves playlist on Spotify.

10. When HR emails you to use up your holiday days because they don’t roll over.


11. You’re so translucent you get burnt in the moonlight.

12. When the smell of coconut reminds you of Bounty bars instead of suntan oil.


13. The suitcase in your room is being used to store a bunch of old VHS tapes.

14. Hearing about other people’s holidays doesn’t inspire you; it makes your eyes roll into the back of your head.


15. You think that long haul flights cost a fortune but in reality, you just haven’t checked to see this is not the case. We’re serious, check it out!

16. The most exotic food you’ve sampled in recent months is your takeaway from down the road.
