Vacation: Defined October 17, 2017

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

To qualify as a real vacation, in my opinion, these conditions must be met:

  • It lasts at least a week.
  • One does not spend it at home.
  • One does not spend it visiting relatives in their homes.
  • One does not take work along.

By this definition, Tim and I recently took our first vacation in two years.

I especially agree about the “relatives in their homes.” Glad you and Tim finally got a real vac.

I agree 100%. Visiting relatives never counts. And a week is a minimum. Yay, glad you got a decent vacation. PS. Can you hear my blood curdle as I wrote that? What I would more naturally say is, “glad you got a decent holiday.”

I gotta say I disagree with the relatives point. We went to California a couple years ago and stayed a couple days with Dean’s aunt and uncle. It was delightful and I think it was a true vacation.

Sometimes it’s great. (I would feel that way about my cousin.) It’s rare with parents, though. And siblings, depending.

It could just be I have not had very many real vacations. I usually work and often visit family. I also usually cook most meals when we are “on vacation”.
