3 weeks is a good amount of time to decompress and enjoy yourself.
What was your itinerary?

Got back from St. Lucia a few days ago.

Was in Cozumel in February (4 day cruise).
Las Vegas and Los Angeles in early February.
Virginia and Washington DC in April 2010.
Salem, MA in October 2010.
We try to do 1 big vacation each year and a bunch of mini road trips in between since I get 20 days a year of vacation time.

It's not easy, that's for sure, but we try to work around it. Sometimes I think it is an "ignorance is bliss" thing. How can we miss something if we have never experienced it?
My kid in Paris has *FIVE WEEKS* paid vacation per year.

In the last thread where we talked about Americans and vacation time, there were several Americans (living in the States) who came out of the woodwork to comment on how much paid vacation time they have. Some are doing very well.

In his old job, my husband used to just 'go in the hole' so to speak so that we could take larger chunks of time, and then he would make it up later. Mini-vacations are fine, but if you're paying to cross the Atlantic, it's nice to stay awhile.
With his current job, it is a completely different payment situation and they'll just have to deal with him being gone in December, but things are slow during the holidays.
I have been in my current job a little less than a year and will get no paid vacation for another year--but I work part-time, and just take unpaid leave.
