Staycation and Workation

The terms "Staycation" and "Workation" would be two words that got more visibility during this COVID-19 lockdown.

I personally have enjoyed Staycation many times in the past. Every time I would return from an onsite trip which would be around 3 months or so, I would simply long to be at home. That's when I enjoyed the Staycation. Being at home and reading a book and probably do nothing substantial would be my way of enjoying and resting at the same time. 

However, when I think of Workation, that's not something that I long for. I would rather enjoy a vacation, rather than work during a vacation. And even if it means taking up and laptop and doing something, I would definitely want to do something which would be of my preference rather than work-related. 

But no matter what, these two words will remain in focus for this year or until the whole COVID-19 episode subsides. We will end up doing more Staycations and probably when we go to our home towns and spend time with our near and dear ones, we would end up working and will be a Workation.
