Know Thyself

This comes under the heading of recognizing what works best for you. I had a discussion with a friend last week about the optimum length of a vacation. Ten days was a minimum for her. She said that it takes her a good four days to relax into it. Then she has a few days in the middle before she starts thinking about going home.

I’ve been thinking about this. My optimum vacation, or get-a-way or whatever you want to call it, is three days and two nights. It’s a nice change of pace without requiring major prep. It provides us with a break from routine without impacting Daisy and Sam too much. And it’s possible to fit mini vacations into the calendar without a lot of planning.

I’d still like to go back to England some day, and Disney World with the kids will always be on my list, so week long vacations do have appeal, but in general, I’m happy with these short hops. Maybe I’m just a homebody at heart.
