What is the longest time you have been away for vacation?

For us it was a trip to Disney in 2007 for 6 nights. We can't wait to go back. Hopefully next year for 6 nights again.

I've heard of RV'ers going for months at a time. I'm sure they have to be retired to do that. I think I would miss my children too much to do that.

Our family trip to China a few years ago was 16 days. Dh gets 5 weeks vacation & I get 4 so long trips are possible for us. Typically we do a week or 2 at the beach each summer and a few long weekend when school is out.

Now that's something that is on my bucket list! Going cross country from the East Coast to the West.

27 days combined Africa and Europe. We weren't ready to come home even then. I want to do a month in Italy next summer or perhaps the following year.

Right around 2 weeks, don't remember the exact number of days. I think I was in 7th or 8th grade. Family drove the minivan from Michigan all the way to California and back. Did a whole west coast tour type of thing. Grand Canyon, Vegas, San Fran, Vancouver, Mt. Rushmore, some battlefields, Zion National Park, Redwood Forest...I know there was a lot more to it. Really cool trip.

I have twice taken 16 day vacations-one to Italy and one to China/Tibet. Most international vacations I limit to 12 days; my longest WDW has been 10.

Mine is exactly the same -- 2 week family trip to Ireland when I was 16. Second-longest was 10 days in Disney in 2005.
