I love traveling and vacationing and there is definitely a difference between the two. Vacationing involves a beach or a ski slope, and traveling is when I can't speak the local language (but love trying to learn it), get to take overly dramatic and ridiculous pictures in front of historic places, eat everything local, and have a great time haggling at markets.
I believe weekends are best spent doing as much as possible. Saturday night is definitely a night to be out with friends and I firmly believe that sunday brunch is frequently the most satisfying meal of the week.
I'm a straightforward person, and what you see is what you get. I love flowing conversations that might start with "so what's new?", pass through obamacare's implications on the healthcare industry and then some how wind up on how Hawaii came to have pineapples.
