I am part owner of an engineering firm. We don't always take 2 months off. This was a special occasion, because our daughter is going to be starting High School. She has been around the country, Canada and to the Caribbean a few times, but there was alot of places back east she hadn't seen. So that's why we took 2 months. In the next few years she will be too cool to travel with mom and dad, so we try to maximize our time. Next summer we will be back to our normal 3 week to a month vacation. Keep in mind I don't take off much time the rest of the year, so I save up my time. My main travelling philosiphy that I try to teach my kids is to:
- Experience new things out of your comfort zone.
- On your death bed, NOBODY has ever said they wished they had spent more time at work.
- Have fun.
Yes I own a successful business, but it was a great day when you relize that there is more to life then making money. You can have so much fun, even with very little money.
Sorry for the rant. Just hope it helps others to think outside the box, even though one of my boxes happens to be a travel trailer.
