I went to Hawaii with my family for the first time. It was awesome! We snorkeled with sea turtles. I also exercised four days on my vacation. I am very pleased:)

I took a week-long vacation to visit a sparkfriend in New Mexico and we have several short vacations planned - one was this weekend to attend a Nature Knowledge Workshop in the San Bernardino mountains in a gorgeous private camp. We will probably take 2-3 longer trips later this summer and/or a series of shorter trips - it's so nice to have a retired husband because I have a very flexible teaching schedule right now ;-)

I will be leaving in two week for a Mediterranean coast tour with my best friend. It was a trip planned through the school where she teaches. We are going to spend 9 days travelling between Milan, Italy; Monaco, and Barcelona, Spain. I can hardly wait! I have never been to any of there places before. I am sure that it is going to be an amazing trip

No plans right now. I think we will probably stay pretty close to home.

Staycationing, like always. No money for travel. But since I live in a beautiful beach city I don't complain too much.

Well I want to see the Redwoods, walk on the beach and sit in my hot tubby and gaze at the stars. So I'll stay home!

We're headed to the beach for a few days, part vacation, part college visits. (I can't believe it's already time for that! GULP!) There will be a few weekend camping trips as well, up to beautiful Lake Tahoe and Bassi Falls.

We finished some major construction so this year it will be a few get away weekends. Love having a 4 day weekend so I plan on using my PTO(paid time off) more this summer.

Well, since you asked...
My husband and I are going to Oahu, Hawaii in 15 days (check my ticker) to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary!
The last time we went on a real vacation together was on our...honeymoon!
You are worth it!

Sadly, there is no such thing as "vacation time" for some of us. If I want a vacation, I have to take unpaid time off. So I haven't taken more than a couple days off each year since before 2000.
That's okay, though. I make enough of my weekends into mini-vacations to not feel the lack much. I can easily hop a train to SF, spending the whole day there doing any number of things. I will be getting a season pass to Great America, spending several days this summer there.

I booked a hotel today, Newport Beach! And I verified my timeshare week, the week before Newport for a two week trip. (It's been 4 years since taking one). Hope Carlsbad isn't boring, since we no longer go to Legoland due to my son's (advanced 15) age, ha ha.
