Column: Taking vacation takes hard work
Have you ever noticed how much work goes into taking a vacation?
It's not necessarily the packing. It's not necessarily the financial planning. You have to think about how you're going to get to where you're going, and you have to work out the timing while you're actually on said vacation.
When it comes right down to it, the days leading up to a vacation can easily be stressful enough to offset any relaxing you might do.
