Workcation – A ‘new normal’ travel trend


Imagine sitting in a balcony or a garden with a morning tea, laptop on your table and in front of you a panoramic view of mountains. How would you be feeling working like this? Or, working on the shacks of the beaches with the sound of waves motivating you to work half an hour more? These dreams are turning into reality with the new travel trend called “Workcation”, which is generated from Work + Vacation. Thanks to this pandemic situation and the booming concept of “Work from Home” for months which allowed many employees to go away from the humdrum of the life into some soothing places – be it mountains, beaches or private cottages with their laptops. Sounds cool, no? Mukesh Joshi, who works as chartered accountant with RBS Bank (a Scotland based Bank) got work from home (WFH) for 6 months and now he is enjoying his Workcation in Haldwani, Uttarkhand, doing official video conferencing calls  from the lap of nature. “Since the notice from my UK office for WFH for the period of 6 months, I have come to the nature paradise Uttarakhand and I have been enjoying working here. Everyday I have video concalls with my team with of course mountains in the backdrop. Workcation is a good idea indeed which keeps one motivated towards work amid all these negativities prevailing related to pandemic. And most importantly, I am enjoying homely food, nice weather along with the work.”
