Did you know that more than 130 countries around the world have a legally required minimum vacation time (3-5 weeks per year?) And did you know that employees in America are lucky to get two weeks per year? That’s a thought to ponder …

Fast fact: In 2005, U.S. workers collectively turned down 1.6 million years of vacation time to which they were entitled. (Associated Press “Labor your days away: U.S. workers aren’t holiday takers”)
The article also said: Every one who has sacrificed work time to enjoy more vacation
said they were delighted with the choice. Those who put their career first and
didn't dare take vacation have bitter regrets.
Hmmmm - I guess we better use our vacation time and enjoy a few moments away from
the office!! Make a goal to take a trip and use your vacation time (before it slips away).

I really want to take a cruise to Alaska, spend a weekend in Vegas or sip lemonade in Hawaii ....
What are you doing with your vacation days? :)
