How do you vacation?

I got back from Las Vegas on Monday, and I still haven’t caught up on my sleep three days later. So basically, it’s just like every other trip I take.

Whether it’s Spring Training or Europe or Door County or a family trip to Orlando, I run myself ragged on pretty much every vacation. Exceptions may include my honeymoon in St. Martin, or a boring trip I took to the Bahamas in 2005. Is this how everyone travels?

My problem, I think, is that I want to soak everything in when I’m away from home. I get bored lounging around. Sure, it’s easier to lie on the beach, but I’ve never been able to spend a whole day doing that.

Obviously, this is a great problem to have. I’m lucky to have visited so many cool places over the years. But I’m almost 40. I shouldn’t need a vacation from a vacation.

What’s your plan for actually unplugging, slowing down and recharging on vacation? I really want to know.
