When Does Vacation Begin?
When does the vacation begin? Is it when the dreaming of a vacation begins? Or when the reservation is made? Surely not when you are trying to pack for your vacation and your kids are unpacking even faster.
I take great pleasure in imagining the trip before it's taken. I know it is a habit rooted in limited traveling when I was younger, followed by slightly less limited travel as I age. I've never been to Puerto Rico or Portland or Paris. My passport is virtually empty. But I always find a way to escape via my mind.
In case you haven't noticed, we've been on vacation. But we're back, stop in all this week for highlights from the trip.
