What if we went to work on vacation? Workation, a contraction of work and vacation, is a new trend that has emerged in the United States. The idea is to take up residence in an exotic location to work in a more peaceful setting.
The idea is very appealing to slashers, those workers who have several careers at the same time, as well as to freelancers looking for a balance between work and leisure. Club Med and Hyatt Hotels are adapting to this new trend and are now offering workation packages to enjoy both the pool and the Wi-Fi. The Barcelona tourist office even offers a selection of accommodation adapted to “work and live like a Barcelonian.”
