    We go to Florida every year which is pretty much our only trip. Depening on our schedules we go on a float trip with some friends but it isn’t a big vacation.

    Right now we don’t really take any except to visit family.

    I voted 1-2, but depends on what you mean by vacations.  Travel distance of 1-3 hours by car, I would say 1-2. Where flight and extended stay is involved, I would say 1 every 1- 1.5 years thus far.  However, now that we’re expcting, after our trip for a destination wedding next year, I doubt we’ll take another trip like that for 3-4 more years.

    Unfortunately, we rarely take any. :

    We go out of town a lot.  If you consider long weekends, we usually take 12-15 trips per year.  If you just mean like week long far away excursions, probably 2-3.  

    I’ve been pregnant this year and had a lot of health issues, so we’ve only done about six or seven long weekend trips and then have a trip planned in October and December.  We’d just rather take a lot of short trips than wait for a major one, but my husband gets unlimited vacation time (not to mention our daughters get cranky being away from home after about 6-7 days), so it works for us.

    I usually take 3-4 but with us saving for the wedding and honeymoon we haven’t done any in two years.  I’m dying!  I want the wedding to be over so I can enjoy our honeymoon but we have to wait a few months to do that too because I can’t take four weeks off in a row from work (I’m already taking a week and a half for the wedding.)  I also want to go back to taking a few trips a year.  The last trip we did was a night in Savannah last year for a friend’s birthday so we didn’t even get to have a romantic couples vacation.

    I would say probably 3-4.  We usually have one big 1.5 – 2 week vacation per year and then take a few smaller weekend/extended weekend trips throughout the year.  Note that I’m not counting weddings and holidays.  We also take the occasional weekend camping or backpacking trips, but I don’t really count those as vacations.

    Since we’ve been together we usually take a couple long weekend road trip type getaways or overnights.  The wedding and honeymoon will be the first actual long week vacation and the first time we’ve flown together as well.

    Usually 4-5, if you count weekend trips or 3-day weekends to the beach or mountains.  Week-long vacations we take 2 per year.

    Counting short 2/3 day trips? Maybe 10?

    We usually do 2 big trips and lots of little ones.

    We take a big vacation every two years.  Three times a year we go to Michigan to visit family, and we usually have to travel for at least one wedding.  This year’s is in Seattle.
