We're heading out on a month-long vacation. This still feels both luxurious and un-American.
In the US, I'm not sure it's accepted or even possible to tell your boss you're taking July off. Here you're almost entitled to it. We had a good reason to go away for so long this summer. Our bathroom renovation. We tried to time that four-week project with our trip, but it didn't quite work out. We had to start earlier. The guy doing our bathroom goes on vacation soon too.
