Thats the point of a vacation. Get away from home. Get away from people that know you and know where to find you. Since my husband is a preacher and we lived in parsonages it was the only way to get some rest. We liked to camp, no phones, no way to reach us if only for a few days.

Doesn't work that way at a parsonage. Most of the time its right beside the church and people are always in and out. Or if they see your car in the drive or a light come on in your house and on and on and on. You get the idea. since a preacher is on call 24/7 it is hard to get away and when you do get a vacation you want to get some rest. Unfortunatetly some people think if the preacher is at home then they can call him even if he is taking vacation time. So the need to get away.

If you stay at home, people can call you and ask you to come in to work. It is also just a good way to get fresh ideas and have some thinking and relecting time.

i think everyone loves nature and wants to spend some precious time with the family members, what could be more rewarding than a vacation with the family. so vacation brings change in life, lots of fun and love of the family.

When you come home from a trip you have memories out of the ordinary which nobody can steal for the rest of your live. You can think of the sea or the mountains you have seen or maybe the Eiffeltower or all the sand in the Sahara.... You can tell your frinds and maybe one day your grand-children. That is what trips are for.
