My family has a goal of two vacations a year. We do one vacation that is within driving distance and one vacation that requires flights. With the economy going down the drain, our vacations might have to be cut back. How often does your family get away?

Traveling is my top hobby. One year might be excellent with three trips like 2004 when I went to Turkey, Belgium and the Seychelles. Another year might be very good with two trips like 2006 when I went to Mexico, Belize and Guatemala as well as Bulgaria and Romania. Last year was good with one trip to Portugal. Of course the more trips in a year that I have the more I like it. I view one trip a year as being the minimum. Yes, the economy is in a bad shape and it is a worrying with some airlines going down. Airport tax is high and the fuel surcharge is extremely high. It adds a lot to the long haul destination fares. I am trying to decide where to go to in 2009. Good luck with future traveling.

We used to go twice in a year, that too one for our father in law's annuasary, and another one is my mother in law's ceremoney, both should took place at our native place.. We used to go there to attend the ceremoney.. and be there for couple of days, meet all our family members and we come back to our home. The distance between my home and hometown is around 350 kms.. this is our vocations for every year.. Other than that, we dont have any tour otherwise, and other than this.. We may go out when ever we found time, (there is no fixed time and period for this trip) we used to go to the temple somewhere nearby.. or somewhere in other states.. thats it. This used to happend, once in a year or once in two or three years.. when ever the time permits.. we plan for the same, as of now, our total family not travel in any of the flight.. All the very best.
