How many days before your vacation do you start getting excited? When does the countdown begin??

If it's out of the country, the countdown begins the day I purchase airfare.
If it's within the USA, the countdown probably begins about a month in advance.
I'm not marking it off the calendar or anything, but it's definitely in the back of my mind.
I get pretty excited the week before departure.
At my age, most of the trips I take are trips I really *want* to take.

I've just went through this planning and taking my vacation.
I am initially excited, when I actually book the flight and give those dates to my folks.
But, that happens months in advance, and the original excitement wears off a bit being all wrapped up because of work, things that need to get done, preparations for the trip.
I get all exited the day of, and can't believe, it's really happening.

32 days, 3 hours, 19 minutes and 51 seconds.

But I'm not keeping count.

The countdown for the next vacation usually starts when I'm waiting at the carousel for my bags coming home from a trip!

Current vacation planning started about a year ago, excitement grew over the last month as I actually made ticket purchases and reservations and laying out the itinerary. My current problem is that I've done about all the planning I can do and I'm still over a month away. It's going to be LONG month at work, that's for sure!

Cheers!

We booked our July vacation over a month ago and have been counting the days and talking about it since then. It can't come soon enough!
