When are you "on vacation"?

When is the moment that you feel like, "NOW, I'm on vacation?"

For me, it used to be when I arrived at the hotel. But then I realized I was missing out on hours of vacation. Now, after we go through security, we go to breakfast at an airport restaurant and I order a Royal Mimosa. My first sip is when I am ON vacation.

What's your moment?

Hmm, I used to say when I stepped out of the last set of doors at the Cancun airport and got hit with the heat and humidity but after a few trips I think it starts as soon as I clear security.

For me, it used to be when we got in our private transfer at Cancun International. Then last year, I felt the tension ease as we walked out of security at DFW. This year, I'm hoping to start relaxing a little more after I say goodbye to our sweet baby dogs and head out to the airport.
