On Vacation vs. Visits


Families have their own culture and it is often expressed by the vocabulary they favor. My husband’s family who enjoys traveling, makes a distinction between vacations and visits. Visits include going to see your family and friends, where you feel like there is a level of obligation. It is a useful distinction psychologically, where you can set a particular expectation for one versus the other.  Considering all travel away from home to be a vacation can be dangerous because you feel like you’ve already exhausted your quota of vacation for the year. When I do go on a visit, I do make sure to schedule in some free time or mini sightseeing within the visit for everyone’s sake.
