Just reading through posts and such and it seams like so many of you takes multiple vacations a year. Looking at my day job schedule - I have 10 vacation days + the week between Christmas and New Years (not considered vacation - we strait up close (paid)) I burned 3 days in Boston in February for my side business. We're taking a week in May for Vegas That's 8 I'll need another 3-5 in October / November for 2 more side job expos in Chicago so I'll need to make these up at the day job. I really want to take 2 vacations this year. With Vegas in May, was thinking Caribbean in September or October, but time off is hard to come by. I could go to the Caribbean during that week off in December but I hate flying as it is, let alone taking off / landing with ice / snow on the wings of the plane lol What'd you do? Are you retired? Work for yourself? Do you make up time if you go over? Is the sig other the same or ?
