Well, I make a distinction between "vacation" and "travel".

I "travel" for racquetball tournaments. I run them and play in them. This year I spent 5 days in Chicago, and will spend 5 days in Phoenix and 5 in Memphis. And I will probably take 1/2 a dozen weekend trips to more local tournaments (I'm in DC). I don't count these as "vacation", except the 1st year I went to Phoenix I took extra time to see the Grand Canyon and Sedona.

Vacation: I try to travel internationally once a year. In March BF and I went to Costa Rica. Then it's mostly weekend trips (we'll go camping a few times in the summer, skiing a few times in the winter, and take a few trips to Atlantic City). This year, I also plan to meet my aunt and uncle in Utah to go hiking, and we're planning a fall trip with some friends to Boston.

We also travel to NH to visit our families once in the summer and at Christmas.
