What seems to be among the first uses of the word “vacation” date back to Chaucer’s 14th-century Canterbury Tales when he references a “vacacioun from other worldly occupacioun." Don't we all need a vacation from our occupations?!

The Anglo-French origin of medieval England (and ultimately from Latin) for the word “vacation” means “exemption from service, or to be empty, free, or have leisure” and evolved into “freedom from work or cares or a time of contemplation.” Today, we recognize a vacation as a “respite from something or an intermission.”

Isn’t that what a vacation is? An intermission in life? Freedom from responsibilities or stresses of life? A time to reflect? While the British traditionally refer to a holiday as a period of time spent away from home or business, vacations are considered for all of us vital ways to unplug, to vacate our normal, hectic lives to refresh our souls and minds!

Some years are certainly more challenging to navigate than others, leaving us feeling an even bigger need to plan a memorable vacation to look forward to, to experience, and to fondly remember.
