Particular problem

One of the inconveniences of living abroad is that it’s a bit difficult to show-off when coming back from holiday with the exotic places you’ve been to. Well, depending a bit where you come from but generally the sentence “I’m going home” sounds less exciting then “I’m going to Australia/Vanuatu/Brazil…”

The advantage of going home and staying with your family is that it’s an all-inclusive hotel for free, including all meals, all drinks, sight-seeing, and of course, seeing parents, grand-parents, aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins. Though not everybody may consider this aspect as advantage, I definitely do.

Laziness, a lot of sleep, hiking, visiting, good food, and great company are all together one of my preferred ways of spending holidays. Just as a question: Holidays has nothing to do with holy days, right? Though, somehow it would make sense. At least to me.

  1. From the oracle: “Holiday is a contraction of holy and day, holidays originally represented special religious days. This word has evolved in general usage to mean any special day of rest”.

    Vacations (les vacances) is kind of more meaninfgul, you leave your place, you leave it “vacant”.

  2. Gracias. The oracle is wikipedia, right?

  3. Bien sur, I hope Google doesn’t get upset.

  4. 🙂 Even if it does, what could it do to you?

  5. I don’t even want to think about it, Google knows more about me than my mother!
