“Take vacations... Go as many places as you can.
You can always make money... You cannot always make memories” ― unknown

Getting away does not necessarily imply flying south or anywhere else for that matter. The key is to find a setting that will allow you to leave all your worries behind. Some people manage to do it from home, although a change of surroundings often helps one to disconnect from daily concerns. Simply turning off the cell phone and opening a book under a tree in a city park can be a great getaway! Some studies have found a positive relationship between vacations and intellectual function.

My 2nd time to spend a very long Vacation Leave as on OFW in Middle East. The 1st time was 38-days in Central Europe and Israel last October-November 2013 only (just after 7 months). I used my country of work as airport of origin due to proximity in fulfilling my dream beyond to travel the world. From Kuwait to United Kingdom (Europe) then to Morocco all the way to Turkey (Asia) afterwards to Kenya and Tanzania (Africa). Going back to Kuwait then fly to Philippines, Indonesia and a revisit to Japan.
