My cousin has two weeks of vacation in his job. He takes it all at once. Two weeks at a resort in Northern Minnesota. The same resort, the same weeks and the same cabin. This for the last 15 years.

Is there something to be said for sticking with the tried and true vacation as long as you like it?

If that's what your cousin wants to do then that's the end of it.

why would anyone need to go anywhere else? The only thing I wonder is why he can't get 3 weeks off.

It's not what I would do (because I'd get bored), but I'm not going to criticize someone who does. Vacations are supposed to be about enjoying your time off, and if someone has found their ideal relaxation spot, why shouldn't they go back to it over and over?

Mod cut: Quoted post deleted.

I am just curious what other people think because it was a conversation piece on Christmas. Half of the relatives thought that was great and the other half thought that fear was stopping him from going to new places and opening his mind to a different type of vacation.

Even if it IS fear driving his decision, so what? As I said earlier, vacations are supposed to be enjoyable. If your cousin is fearful of exploring new places/activities, why shouldn't that be respected? It's a harmless enough personal quirk. It just means he's missing out on something new he might enjoy - but life's short, and we ALL end up missing out on something in the end. Let the fellow enjoy his vacation!

I think it's silly, but if that's what they enjoy...more power to them.

If he is happy, leave him alone. It is really none of your business anyway!

Sounds like he's found his little slice of heaven. There are a few destinations that I've been to numerous times but I prefer to have new experiences as well. But those familiar places feel like home to me so every so often I simply need to go back.
