A 1 week cruise celebrating one of my wife's cousins getting married. It was the most time I ever took off work in 15 years.

I highly recommened cruises. The ultimate getaway. I also recommened getting the drink package, so all meal and bar tabs come out to $0.

I Had such a blast everyday. The beaches, the tourism, and the awesomeness of the boat itself. Had to get used to not picking up after myself.

I cant wait to do it again. I dont care where.

Growing up, we never had vacations longer than a week. That was how long my dad could get off at a time.

I've taken two vacations longer than that. One was by myself to both London and Canterbury over the course of about 12 days. The other was with my wife through London, Cardiff, and Edinburgh last summer. That was two weeks. I like both kinds of travel - by myself, I didn't have to worry about exhausting anyone else with my tendency to walk and walk and walk, and I was still able to meet new people a couple of times. With someone else, I could share the experience, and I didn't have to deal with the lonely moments so much, but it did mean more communication and compromise with where we tried to go. (The compromise wasn't so bad; I missed out on a couple of galleries, and she did have one day of walking 16 miles.)

We took a three week vacation to France and Switzerland the summer after my freshman year of high school. As an adult, my longest vacation was when I went to Mexico with some friends for a week.
Bork is too lazy to bother thinking up a witty signature. :polarbear:

I was unemployed for a couple months once.

Actual vacation, I took a two week vacation to the east coast once... Which now that I think of it is the first and last vacation that wasn't just a long weekend to visit my partner in a different city.

This was a depressing topic lol

One month when I was 14. I went to visit my aunt, uncle, and cousins in their little small town in Massachusetts.

It was supposed to only be two weeks, but I begged them to change the flight because I did not want to go home. I later found out (as an adult) that they obliged specifically because they knew how shitty my home life was. Thanks for looking out for me, fam :heart:

Inbetween jobs, took a driving vacation to visit friends and family. If we could survive a month on the road together, said good things about our eventual marriage. Yep... worked out.

The friendships? Not so much. Glad we figured that out, too.

From early November 1990 to late June 1991. I visited South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Australia, Fiji, The USA (Los Angeles) and Mexico... although Zambia and Mexico were just day trips.

I recently went back to the U.S. for almost 6 weeks. It did not feel like a vacation.
