Your Turn

When you take vacation from work, how often do you just stay home instead of traveling?

That's what you call a 'staycation'.
Pretty often. No airline hassle, check out things around town that I've wanted to and save $.

I don't get "vacations from work." But heyyyy, I just booked my first vacation for the year! Heisenberg killed it this year and I'm going to fucking Hawaii

The Real Dragon said...

I mostly stay home sleep and eat waffles maybe get some in between

Bacon Ranch said...

YAAAAAAAY Lady H! That's awesome

aemish said...

Yeehaw, @Lady H!

aemish said...

Jinx :p

Maybe once a year or so Mr V takes the jrs down to London for a couple of days, I take the same days off work and stay at home. On my own. In peace. That is quite honestly the best holiday ever. And then I miss them and am happy to have them back .

I'm always going somewhere for vacation...but I will say, going on vacation is absolutely exhausting, and you never feel like you were on a break. When you stay home and do nothing, you feel like you're able to relax and enjoy the time off.

RARELY, I always go somewhere, off to San Juan tomorrow for Memorial weekend just so happens.

Violet said...

Hawaii would be amazing though Lady H. Although I would probably burn to a crisp. Hope your skin is a less delicate shade of pale than mine.

Always. I am a homebody, and I really don't have many places I would rather be.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Thanks bacon and aemish! I'm going next month and cannot wait!

I live for road trips. Just love driving somewhere far away, stay a little while if I have to, then drive back a different way. Once in a while on a long weekend I'll fly somewhere a thousand or more miles away and pick up a prearranged rental and pound it back home.

Halfterm time is just around the corner so I'm just heading back home to see the family. This is my first proper summer as a teacher so Ibiza here I (hopefully) come!

FSP said...

Did somebody say waffles?

Krystie Rachelle said...

I take vacations to concerts. But since I work from home in my yoga pants everyday is a staycation. Cue the umbrella drinks!

crila16 said...

You're going to LOVE Hawaii. Which Island are you going to? I've been to Maui, Oahu, Hawaii and Kauai.

The Real Dragon said...

@FSB Chocolate chip waffles.

Snapdragon said...

I can't remember the last time I traveled somewhere for my vacation time (that didn't involve a family crisis, anyway).

Renoblondee said...

Hawaii is amazing. I've been lucky to have gone once. The Big Island.

GatorGirl said...

Never stay home. I work for an airline so free travel is part of my benefit package. We do lots of 3 day short vacations though. Its funny coming in on Monday hearing someone say How was Prague? Gotta love the travel business

MovingOn said...

Staycations are my favorite.

Gayeld said...

Please tell you're not going to Hawaii in the summer. November. Go in November!

Gayeld said...

I have one of those waffle makers where you flip the waffles over after you put in the batter. It makes two Belgium waffles at once. It's awesome.

Bacon Ranch said...

Wee S, Ibiza? Sooo jealous.

Vacation has been two weeks in July at a beach house in San Diego for the last 7 years.

I sometimes take time off during the holidays and that's used for shopping in Palm Desert or San Diego.

When my kids were young, I stayed home, but not so much anymore.

Wen said...

Thanks to Obama and Obamacare, I can't afford a vacation. My hours have been cut and now have to worry about how I am going to pay for my health insurance.

Wee S said...

Yup. My friend and her hubby are teachers out there-apparently she's met the male model who inspired the creation of the Zoolander character lol. So free accommodation during peak season. Nice.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Praha <3

Lady Heisenberg said...

Yay Weeeeee S you go!!

Violet, is that you behind me?!

Thanks y'all! Can't wait till next month!!! Yes, Gayeld, sadly I can't take time off during the school year because I either instruct or TA courses at the university I attend

aemish said...

Hahaa.. that picture is hilarious Lady H :D

Violet said...

Lady H - how come my private photos are all over the web?

NaughtyNurse said...

Never. We always travel for our vacations, and preferably over a long distance. In order to truly get away, we need to get away.

auntliddy said...

Gay- that wld be the whole vacation for me, lol

auntliddy said...

Prob half and half. Sometimes broke and sometimes just plain tired.

Lovelyloie said...

That sounds perfect! Must try.

Sherry said...

Since we bought a house (Blanc Debris) we've never gone on vacation. Or not one I recall.

Have fun in HI LadyH!

The Real Dragon said...

@Gayeld You having good life. I need one of those.

Lady Heisenberg said...

ROFL

Cee Kay said...

I'm self-employed, so IF I take a vaction, it's to go somewhere. I am going to take a week off this summer, but otherwise the last time was a week three years ago. It's not so bad, though. I work from home so I get to be with my kids all summer...wait, uh...

Alita said...

Good on you, Lady Heisenberg - so happy for you to get a lovely island break :)

Will you be CDaNing while there?

mcmama said...

No freaking way! What island?
