La Rentree: “What I did on my Summer Vacation”

by

I’ve recently returned from France where I had a wonderful time reconnecting with family. It’s amazing, but in France, most people enjoy a full month of vacation — and most of them take this time during the month of August. A huge portion of the country, flocking to the countryside and the coasts of France. When it’s over, “la rentree” begins. The Return.

Now I’ve returned…and I decided it was time to start a conversation about the benefits of extended vacations (how they help restore us, connect us with family, etc). And to ask the question: how do many of us here in the States manage when we don’t have the same amount of time to get away? How do we replenish ourselves?

We decided it might be fun to have an informal essay contest. Send us your thoughts on the above to info@visionleadership.com, or reply to this blog, below. The winner(s) will receive a nice bottle of French wine to share with friends or family. And we’ll post your replies here, with your permission.

Enjoy! –Valdo

    Wow. I would love to have a whole month off! Especially in France!

    How did I replenish myself this summer? Well, I did some swinging in the trees in the Pacific Northwest. Does that count?
