VACATION / STAYCATION OVER?

VACATION / STAYCATION OVER? HOW DO YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR HOLIDAYS? RELAXING READING, SLEEPING OR WHIZZING ABOUT SIGHTSEEING?

Do tell me! And Happy Ruby Tuesday to everyone in Australia, New Zealand and the Far East where it’s already Tuesday! And do visit other Ruby Tuesday posts! (Links at Work of the Poet.)

Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)

PS Have a good week and see you again for Alphabe-Thursday!

On a boat - big boat.
Days at sea - no touring, no sightseeing, no schedule.
No other people (well, except for The Great Dane)
Really good bed, pile of books, split of champagne every night.
Perfect.

Michelle said...

Try to do a bit of each-some relaxing,some sightseeing (though not too much!)

Felisol said...

My holiday never was as sunny and relaxing as the one in your post today.
Since I am retired I like to take my holiday in short portions when School has started.
I sure wouldn't say no the some days i the South either.

Holly said...

Mainly resting and recharging the batteries...!

tania said...

Both in moderation - thta's the secret for me!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

It's a sightseeing holiday weekend for me...as you will see, if you stop by for a visit!

Because I am a housewife and spend most of my time inside, I hate relaxing on holidays. I like to always be out and be doing stuff. I can relax at home any time... boring. :D

Jan said...

Like activity hols best-can rest up at home! Haha!

Mike said...

My job's demanding so holidays are for reading, eating & sleeping (not necessarily in that order!)

Liza said...

Sightseeing! :)

Mine's here.

Ralph said...

To relax, at home or away, is what we need to do. Slow down our pace a bit. Whatever it is, we need to recharge and not work - whatever the activity...

Resting, recharging the batteries, seeing new sights, or boating...we love it all! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

I love to spend my vacation exploring new countries. But lazing around at home sounds nice too.

Rinkly Rimes said...

I wonder what they're all reading!

Marites said...

I mostly like doing travel during holidays, tire myself out, eat a lot, sleep late and then, when I go home I would wish I stayed home and had less laundry. Have a good week! my RT is up here.

I'm a homeschooler so it's always like a holiday now =)

But, when I was not homeschooling.. I love spending my time drawing and watching television.

Have a splendid day,
Berlin

Carletta said...

I like whizzing about seeing all I can see of the place I'm visiting!

Jim said...

Hey Nora ~~ I like to explore. Most new places fascinate me, except I can only take about three museums and two castles in one day. :)

Our next will probably be in January on the big boat in the Caribbean. We've never been to Key West. I would like to stay more than a day but that's what the boat has planned.

Oh yes, Nebraska will be for relatives in October. Louisiana also.

Then Europe is more within our reach now because our daughter and her family have moved to London. Portugal would be a new country for me. Don't know why we missed it. Also touring Norway and the deep fjords. We traveled a wide one into Oslo this summer.

Australia and Anartica are on my bucket list. I have scratched off the South Pole. That I have missed.

This year the holidays were: 1. time intended for solitude at the beach with my little doggie (her last trip before she went to dog heaven) 2. wandering Italy and then doing a 5-day photography workshop 3. spending a week writing at the IWWG conference for women writers and 4. the upcoming trip to Mexico with artists and writers I know. I always love visiting your site, because Lola looks just like my now-departed Latte.

happy RT to you!

One Heart said...

I can't remember the last time I did, but it's usually a combination of sightseeing and relaxing...well, come to think of it, mostly sightseeing and shopping. My husband is a type A personality who never sits still. It's getting harder for me to keep up and I don't have the same energy I used to. If I travelled alone right now, I'd say I'd love nothing better than to sit by the ocean and read a few good books. Oh, yes, and maybe take a few good pictures of the area to share with my blogging friends.

Happy Rednesday to you too. Thanks for stopping by.

We staycate and vacate-- alot. When we vacate, we like to explore-- we can relax at home!

Thanks for the visit!

Mica said...

We went to the beach a few times, had picnics, did crafts and baking,we also went to Disneyland, my son went camping and a huge 5 day concert camp out... the list seems to go on... We really didn't have a Vacation anywhere.. i guess you can say we are the staycation types. Hope you had a great one yourself.. now off to the next school year! Mica/The Child's Paper

LV said...

Loved your red post for today. Wish I could have been in your country enjoying the celebration there.

Oh baby, here on the Ponderosa Labor Day is taken very seriously. It usually involves tractors and plows plantin' the winter wheat. Hubby has always reminded me "it is Labor Day after all!!!" Heeehehehehe!

God bless ya and have a super fun day! :o)
