I wonder if I'm the only one who haven't been on an actual vacation (besides business trips) in 7 years. We've been trying to go but something comes up every time...

We typically take one 10-20 day trip a year and 2-4 long weekends. I also have business travel which is typically 75-125 nights a year in hotels.

Seven years! Enough time to get a whole new skin!
So yes. You are the only one.

I take vacation (outside the continent ones) 2-3 times a year (usually 1-2 weeks), although I never do cruise.

It's irregular. Some years it's none or once, other's its 2-3x if it ties in with a conference or something.

I usually take 3 or so ski trips to CO, but we own property there so lodging isn't an expense.

I take my three weeks vacation every year plus several long weekends (usually Thu-Tues) through the year, but I don't care about cruises or any kind of group vacation. I work to live not live to work.

Any reason why are you not taking your vacation, OP???

I take one trip a year, usually for about 5-6 days. Next year I'll be out for about 10 working days.

are you retired or working as a teacher?
I always wanted to have 3 months off a year, despite lower income.

Well, I've been to a short beach trips like 1-2 days outside the state, but I don't consider it an actual vacation. Then a few business trips. Been planning to go on a cruise, but at first we were in process of buying a house, then we were gonna go in November actually, but waited to long and the prices went way up. Now we adopted another pet and need time for her to adjust. We also just got a dog 5 months ago, so I'm a little bit uncomfortable to leave them with someone else for a week. So, I guess this is not the right time for us
