If you are lucky and work hard enough you save enough extra cash to spend on a dream vacation. For me that dream was a months-long bike tour in France. Finding the free time to do it was another matter – my own experience had been either having either time or money, but not simultaneously. So it was after working for 6 years after college, paying off my school loans and a car – I was rich by my standards but had 15 days of vacation/sick time per year. I then made the somewhat irrational plan to quit my job in the Spring of 1996 and tour through France for 3+ months.
