INSTAGRAM – Whether it's a road trip, an island getaway, or a staycation, three-day weekends are for getting out of our normal routines. Here's a list of the things we like doing best with an extra 24 hours out of the office.

Take the time to look up, whether it's in a new destination or your old neighborhood.
Extra points if it's close enough to Broadway Market in London to grab a picnic and some vintage clothes during chapter breaks.
Spending time with the great people (or animals) in your life is the best way to spend that extra quiet afternoon.
Now's the time to try paragliding, rock climbing, or sushi. You'll have extra hours to psyche yourself up beforehand and calm the adrenaline afterward.
Wandering the shops without an agenda seems like the perfect way to see a new side of your city.
Pack a picnic and head to the roof, the fire escape, or a mountain-top.
Savor the smells of a market, whether it's a greenmarket at home or the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Bangkok.
Clamming on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington is the perfect weekend escape from Seattle.
Stop and smell the roses. Or, rather, the Fjords.
Road-tripping almost inevitably means repairs. Put in some elbow grease.
Take time to slowly sip your artisan espresso.
We know you've been ignoring all those gorgeous magazines on your coffee table. No worries, they're perfect to bring on long roadtrips, short flights, and days spent at the coffee shop.
Take a joy ride outside the city. Look around for something new to taste and try.
