year ago

People are often happier by the anticipation of a vacation than by the vacation itself, according to a study. It mentions how most people, post-trip, are as happy as someone who hasn’t gone on vacation. This might be related to a number of things, but we all know the stress of traveling is likely a big factor. Whether the hotel failed to meet expectations or air travel was full of headaches, folks on social media sure illustrate how chaotic going on a trip can be.

1. “I was worried about this happening on the plane. And it did.”

2. “My uncle’s suitcase after his flight”

3. “Being 6’3” and needing to pee on a small plane"
