What's the longest you've ever been away from home?

I've spent almost 3 months away from home with my NICU baby, but other than that, never more than about two weeks to go traveling. What long-term vacations have you taken?

  • I dont know if this counts but......before i got with my DH and we had our daughter, I was in the military and away from my family for 7 months and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. ( I am a momma's girl and can't stand to not see my mom for more then 2 weeks).

  • Well, vacations I think the longest was 2 weeks. But I left home at 18 and was gone for 3 and a half years without seeing my family once. It wasn't that bad. I think the experience really benefitted me.

  • The longest vacation that I recall is when I was a teenager and travelled with my mom to Europe, we were gone for 2 1/2 weeks.
