Vacation: Defined

I’m here in Pittsburgh for a long weekend visiting a very good friend of mine. I was telling her about my upcoming vacation plans. Her response was “We haven’t gone on a vacation since our honeymoon five years ago”. I knew that was incorrect as her and her husband went to the keys recently. That comment got my thinking. What is a vacation?

A vacation is getting away from life, work, and stress. Sure, some vacations are traveling to far away lands. Places that require a passport and maybe even some vaccines.

But, some vacations are just driving an hour or two away, renting a VRBO, and chilling out for the weekend. A vacation is what you make of it. Can you go back to work and brag about what amazing things and places you visited? Maybe not. But you can go back to work with a better attitude and a sense of renewal. Don’t underestimate the power of relaxation.

For some reason as I am writiting this blog, I remember that old saying “Every destination is like a vacation when you’re traveling in your RV.”

So…… pack your bags, get in your car (or RV) and get out of town!
