It’s more nonsense. I live where people come here for vacation.

So do I, and we still go other places for vacations.

5) That was relaxing
I never ever vacationed like that. And, yes, I do vacate from time to time. I do more short trips since I live where I always wanted to live. I have a timeshare that I use mostly for fishing trips. I do a long road trip every year or so. If I go abroad I tend to find a place and stay for several days and then move somewhere else and do the same. I'm going to Ireland next spring. I don't do "tours" with regimented schedules and barking guides but I'm looking at a tour with an educational group going to Central America sometime next year. I love long train trips and have the time to relax and enjoy the experience.

Nope, still in Hawaii. House should go on the market October-ish.

Well, Im writing this post while Im on vacation. Were on a riverboat cruise up the Douro River, having spent the day in Salamanca.

Currently, a professor from Brown University is giving a lecture on the poetry of Fernando Pessoa.

Does that count?

At least 4-5 times a year, usually with most of those as long weekends in the motor home to go glamping. That's really relaxing, much better than airport, etc., but I do still enjoy an annual vacay somewhere new.

Two years ago we drove our then RV up to NE to visit family; long, stressful ride, since then, sold RV, and stay home on the homestead. Were deep in Appalachia on top of our mountain, as close to Heaven as one could ask for...If our people care to visit, there more than welcome.

Many of us have done that in the decades when we were young.
