How to Plan for Your Next Vacation

When is the last time you took a vacationa real vacation in which you didn’t connect at all to work, to your phone, to the internet?

If you’re like many Americans, it’s probably been too long. In fact, about half of all Americans don’t even get the chance to use their vacation days—much less report whether or not they check in on work while they’re away.

                  So how do we fix this—as employers, employees, and simply people who need a break once in a while?    For starters, giving as much notice as possible helps you to plan, and helps others to plan, too—asking you for items they need or getting your input before you leave. And if you leave a plan in place for who is tasked with covering for your duties while you’re gone, you’re less likely to create stress in your absence.

After a brief flirtation with Japan in the early '90's, and some occasional trips to Australia since, I have had an unrequited love affair with Japan and general desire to explore the world for the next 20 years while reality prevailed and I found myself pretty much stuck in my home country of New Zealand (not that is an entirely bad thing...).After a chance opportunity arose in mid 2012 to relocate our family to Moscow, Russian Federation I finally set off on my OE with my family in tow. It has been an amazing journey that has seen us experience life in Russia, Japan and now Finland, as well as visiting around a dozen countries so far in our adventure to date.While my family situation has changed along the way, I am continuing to explore the world with my tri-lingual son and enjoy sharing the adventures we have had with my followers.
