- Is it a time to be off work, stay home, relax, hang out and do things locally (referred to by some as a "staycation")?
- Does it mean packing up the vehicle, making various and sundry plans (camping, hiking, museums, beach days, whatever), and spending every waking minute traveling or doing something? (In our family we refer to this as a "trip.")
- Or, do you want others to do the planning, e.g., cruises or guided tours?
- How about volunteering with Peace Corps, Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, or other humanitarian organizations?
- Maybe you like to do all of the above at different times.
- And what is vacation to a full-time RVer? Is their whole life a vacation?

What makes a difference in destination choices? Weather, exotic animals, Volksmarching, walking and hiking opportunities, interesting sites such as museums, national parks, wildlife refuges, estates (Biltmore, Hearst Castle), gardens, caves, waterfalls, and zoos, cultural choices like comedy clubs, theater, ethnic restaurants, the people, and the surroundings.

In the end, it's all about your attitude and the way you experience the world.
