I've not been very active here lately.

That's because I've been enoying my summer holiday at our summer house in Denmark. Sparkling weather, pittoresque landscapes, wonderful bicycling trips, spectacular barbecue evenings with lots of alcohol (and my parents' friends), smooth sailboat trips, sunbathing with Danny Elfman and John Williams booming from my discman(!) and a general relaxing mood.

I'm quite drunk as I'm writing this, but I'm genuinely curious as to how everybody's summer holiday is coming along...

So please share, everyone! smile

I haven't had a "summer holiday" since I left school.

I've taken a short vacation during summer, off and on, through the years, but find I take more time off at major holidays than in summer.

Yeah I usually take 2 - 3 weeks off during Christmas/new year time.

No holiday for me - I don't earn enough. I'm enjoying the good weather, though.

Crappy. I haven't had a break since January. And work has just gotten even more busy and stressful over this summer.

As Lilly von Schtupp says, "I'm tired!"

Oh, did I also mention I had a cold last week, followed currently by sinus infection and bronchitus?

I took a week off around the 4th. It was refreshing. MY big vacation is going to be Las Vegas in early October. Meeting up with my buds from Phoenix... big grin

It's been quite a good summer so far. a few really fun parties and at the end of August, a trip to Las Vegas for one last go at the Star Trek Experience before the close it.

Most importantly, this summer (last week, actually), I became a grandfather. :-)

Anything else I do this year will be hard pressed to top that.

Not very good here either. Today I had the worst stomach ache in my entire life. Oh, well.

Summer Holiday?? I dont get holidays anymore.
I work all summer, but I did take a day or two for my anniversary, and was sick most of it with a cold.

I don't get any vacation time until the end of August, which seems a million years away!

Will be taking a much needed rest at the beach and visiting with my family...as usual. Can't wait.

Congratulations! I became a grandfather in February, and she is, without question, the greatest thing, EVER!!!

I'm finally taking a week's vaction (more like a respite). As one colleague at work said "are you going somewhere or is this "stop the world, I want to get off?" It's definitely the latter.

There will be no letup when I return a week from Monday, that's for sure.

FYI, this is the first official paid vacation that I've had since the summer of 2004.
