"Shoot the hostage!" Sorry, for the lame Keanu reference.
Anyways, I have a sabbatical coming up soon and I trying to figure out what to do. So, I was wondering.... if you had 6 weeks off, what would you do
with it? Somebody out there has to have something exciting in mind. Hopefully I can find a little inspiration in this thread (if anyone
I've been to Switzerland and it is beautiful. I am not sure if I am feeling up for a trip to Europe though. I am considering a train trip through
Canada for my nature escape. I am not really sure though.
Travel is a consideration, but I again... not really sure. I've been to Europe, Japan and China. I would like to visit Machu Picchu someday. I
would also like to visit Australia at some point but I just don't think it would be that financially responsible to spend that kind of money in this
With six weeks, traveling really would be the most obvious option even thought you said you weren't sure. You don't have to spend the entire time
traveling, which can be exhausting enough in itself. Maybe just a week or two.
It really depends on what's in your budget. I know you also have small children so that has to be taken into consideration. It can be extremely
draining trying to pack half the house to take along with you or adjust your traveling schedule around the children.
And this isn't terribly exciting, but it never hurts to get caught up on a few things you need to take care of around the house. As in, don't
spend all your vacation time on projects but it is nice to get caught up when we can.
Sorry to not be of much help. I'm trying to think of something that wouldn't cost a lot of money since you're understandably worried about the
economy and something that wouldn't keep you away from your children or exhaust them if they were included but I'm not coming up with much.
I see your point. Many people visit the temples in the old age to redeem their sins and go to heaven. But I would say, you better visit when you are
young, the roads here are bad, if you are young, it will be adventure, if not, you know what, unnecessary health problems.
I can't even fathom having 6 weeks off. In America, there's a word for folks on a 6 week vacation....unemployed...
2 weeks off seems like a lifetime. Personally, I've never had more than a one week vacation (even when I had two weeks, I had two different one week
I seriously can't even envision what I'd do with that kind of time off, except maybe paint a mural in every room of the house. Wish I could be more
help.... I'm sure some travel would be in order...but not for the whole time (unless you had the money oozing out of your pores)...
