Enjoying the “Bleisure” Life

Happy May to all our beautiful Dharma friends and family! Spring is almost at an end, and summer is just around the corner. Unfortunately, vacation time is not here just yet. At the moment, we still have to live our day to day work lives. For many of us that includes business trips. However, just because you have to travel for work doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy yourself while you’re there. There is an increasing trend for workers to take “bleisure” travel or “workcations”. The idea is to make the most out of your required work travel in both productivity and lifestyle by visiting surrounding attractions and taking the time to relax. Fortunately, for those of you traveling to South Florida, Dharma is here to suit the needs of any business or leisure traveler.
