Vacations are just part of being an adult, in my eyes, and I don’t really understand why there are so many statistics about so many people not using their vacation days every year. I mean, they’re built into your job for a reason! Did you know that in Germany they get something like 8 weeks of paid vacation off a year and it’s mandatory to take it??? I think that’s great and we should start doing that here, too, since so many businesspeople get really burned out from the long hours and tireless working. I for one am planning a big trip to Australia later in the year and I can’t wait! I’ve got some college friends living over there now that I can stay with and my ticket’s been purchased. All that’s left for me to do is go to HTTP://ALLHOMESECURITY.COM and check with my neighbor about watering my plants while I’m gone! I think that travelling around the globe and experiencing different cultures is essential to growing as a person.
Thanks for the info, Lewis!
It’s important that we take a break from the everyday “rat race”, when we can afford it! It prevents us from going stir-crazy!
