When planning a vacation, the longer the vacation is the better it will be feels enticing. There is a sweet spot, however, when the allure of your own bed, kitchen, and surroundings starts to sound better than another gorgeous buffet or urban stroll.

Pre-vacation, I’m longing to break out of the routine, see something new, and have someone else cook my meals. Now it’s those same routines that seem to be calling me back.

The travel adventures have formed all kinds of new memories. Wouldn’t trade them for the world. That said, it will be nice to see home sweet home again.
