We all feel a need to vacation at times. Especially those of us who have worked so long and hard from a young age. But that part is not so unusual.

What has been unusual for your generation is the amount of outside stress you’ve had to deal with in addition to the usual individual life stresses. This inevitably exacerbates the feeling of a need to “get away from it all” for some period of time or in some fashion. Always keep that in mind when focused on this subject. 100 years ago 8-year-olds were sent out to work. But they didn’t have the media screaming at them 24-hours-a-day telling them what they had to do to be "perfect."

It’s a different world you experience.
