Who doesn't take a vacation every year?

Growing up our summer vacations were so regular, I never knew there were people that didn't. Obviously thinking about it I knew there were people that couldn't afford it, it just didn't occur to me. Why don't you go - money, time, no desire, etc?

  • We did not go last summer and will not go this summer because we are saving up for our trip to WDW in either November 2012 or February 2013.

  • We've never gone on vacation. We tried to go away for our anniversary once and the person watching DD ruined it for no reason. We haven't really had money for it until now, and now we don't have a reliable enough car, or the time.

  • we go on vacation every 5 years - and it is not even a big thing, not even a week. reason for not vacationing every year is a combination of money, time, and work schedules.

  • I visit family every year, not sure that really qualifies as a vacation though. I hope to take DS on a mini-vaca this summer. We will just have to see if I can afford it or not.

  • We haven't gone anywhere for vacation in years. Primarily money issues, plus work and school.
