When I was a child, I enjoyed traveling to various locations throughout my home country of Canada. In addition, I sometimes crossed over the Canada-USA border to visit some of the northern USA. Of course, that was way before passports started being required to travel between the USA and Canada. In any case, those holidays, or vacations, meant a lot to me and my family. These days, as an adult, I find my time being able to go on a vacation much more limited. Many of my friends here in Canada, along with friends in the USA and Australia, are in a similar situation. Sometimes, I think of how much stress there is in this fast paced world we live in. It would be nice to be able to simply get away and relax. Really relax. I imagine a lot of people worldwide need to go on vacation.
