Vacation or Trip? A Helpful Guide for Parents

A humorous observation from a delightful blogger, M. Blazoned, about the distinct difference between a “vacation” and a “trip.” Hopefully, you will find her musings relatable and still want to travel with your family here to The Mariner. Teaser:

So, you’re headed out on a family vacation this summer. Great news! But are you sure? Are you sure it’s a vacation? You might want to think about that for a minute. Because a vacation is best described as time away from a job and/or the monotony and frustrations of day-to-day life, with the goal of relaxing and having fun. Not to be a super downer, but chances are, if you have kids (and they are coming with you), you aren’t going on a vacation at all. You’re going on what I like to call… a trip.
