Fascinating Vacation Ideas

One reply, courtesy of Linda P, mentions a road trip back in the 1960s from California to Ohio. That would have been fun.

I just wrapped up five days in Manhattan. Why Manhattan? Put simply, I wanted to get it out of my system. Typically, my travel plans focus on avoiding large cities. For this reason, it seemed a bit overdue to visit the Big Apple. Oddly, I LOVED it.

How Often Should Residents of Grand Junction Take a Vacation?

Looking at the website CleverJourney, it is recommended you take extensive vacation time each year.

Ideally, you should take at least two longer trips per year, in addition to a few other smaller trips. The total amount that you should spend on vacation is 30-45 days per year. I know getting one month off per year can seem hard for some, but it’s a very effective way to stay healthy, live happier, and longer.

Not Very Likely

This is only my opinion, but if a person has a job with any degree of responsibility at all, the likelihood of taking 30 to 45 days off each year is pretty much impossible.
