The sounds of your email’s pings are softened by the gentle whoosh of waves splashing over a warm-sand shoreline. Your head is clearer—better suited to work (and play), your skin is sun-kissed, soaking up Vitamin D and you don’t have to worry about fixing dinner after five if you don’t feel like it. With Wi-Fi access and work that can be done virtually anywhere, life is good on a workcation (or luxury sabbatical). The biggest perks? Enjoying a fresh new destination while sparing your precious vacation days, more quality family (or solo) time, plus you’ll get to embrace a faraway place on the weekends (and even after work). What a time to be alive!
