You went away from your home, that's not a staycation. You didn't stay, you went. To a different place.

That bugged me too. It's not a staycation if you leave to go elsewhere. The literal meaning of staycation is to stay put!

Nope, a staycation is when you stay in the same area (ie no travelling). I wouldn't call staying at home a staycation, but some people do. Most commonly people book a hotel/resort/airbnb in their area for a true staycation.

True. I guess I said that bc it's relatively close to home, but you're right

I think they meant that they went somewhere but then just stayed inside the whole time. I guess there's not really a word for that tho lol

It's called my ideal vacation.

Thought staycations were if you stayed in the same country. So going from London to visit Cornwall would be a staycation. Whereas going to Spain would not

Lon to Cwl is a holiday. As you can go to Cwl and rent actual Holiday cottages.

Going away for a length of time to somewhere you don't live is Holiday Taking a week off work, sitting at home watching TV or visiting local attractions but returning home each night is a Staycation.
