Vacation a noun an extended period of leisure and recreation, especially one spent away from home or in traveling.

Vacation is a time everyone looks forward relaxing and unwinding, for most of us it all started when we were children at the end of the school years when school was out for the summer. After we got older and had been working for a while our employer rewards us with some time off called a vacation, and over the years we become accustom taking time away from our work. As we become accustom to taking vacations, we look for more and more places to travel, after a while we might have selected one place to take a vacation after years of working, we start to think more along the lines of a permanent vacation called retirement. But you need to be careful where we decide to retire, because unlike a vacation retirement is permanent, after spending several months in one location you might become tired of living in the same place and unlike when you were working you had the extra money to take that much needed vacation. If you decide to retire to that lake where you enjoyed spending all those summers when you were young, but when you get older you might find being around partying people is not so much fun when you want to go to sleep at 11:00 pm and the neighbors are still partying till well past 2:00 AM. After a while living at the lake is much different when you get rid of your boat because you may not get as many visitors as you once did because there is not as much for your visitors to do, after all remember they are on vacation. One day you may once again start thinking about making a change in your lifestyle, after all people are travelers at heart. Remember an important part of a vacation is anticipation and planning to do something different in different place.
