Do People Really Like Going on Vacation? Yes, Yes, They Do
Published on November 13, 2011 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I write about how much I love vacation, and how sad it is when vacations end and transport you back to the real world.

Here's an excerpt:

"Nobody gloats about going on vacation as much as I do.

'Guess what?' I’ll gleefully announce to all the poor souls without vacations to look forward to. 'I’m going on vacation.'

I start gloating about my vacations at least one month before they’re scheduled to begin, and the gloating tends to get louder and more obnoxious as the vacation draws closer. Before my most recent vacation, the woman who sits across from me would try to head me off at the pass. Instead of waiting for me to start gloating, she would sit down and say, 'OK, let’s hear it. How many days left until your vacation?'

If her query was an attempt to get me to show a little restraint, well, it didn’t work.

Instead, I started gabbing away about all the fun things I planned to do on my trip to the British Virgin Islands. By the time I finished talking, I’d made it sound like I was gearing up for the greatest experience of my life."
