I’m much more likely to go somewhere for a weekend than for a longer stretch, and most of my “long” trips lately haven’t been more than two weeks long. I don’t see myself backpacking for a year anytime soon, but I do like to take a longer stretch of vacation when I can.
Here is a list of my longest trips:
2001 London/Amsterdam/Israel 4 weeks with friends/family
2007 Croatia/Slovenia/Balkans/Israel 3 weeks with friends/family
2009 Mexico 5 weeks almost all solo travel
2011 Egypt/Israel/Jordan 3.5 weeks with friends/family
2012 Vietnam/Cambodia/Thailand 3.5 weeks with friends
2013 Australia 3.5 weeks with friends
