For some people holidays are the time of their life to disconnect themselves from long days of work. For others it's the perfect time to bring their laptop/tablet to the swimming pool, to continue their work because they can't do nothing or they just enjoy their work so much. What are holidays to you and do you need them to disconnect or not?

I agree an overworked body/brain is no good to anyone. I can also see your point in recharging during the weekends. If you do so, holidays can be very relaxing because you start your holiday in a fit shape.
I guess I'm ruled by my state of mind as well. To get away from my usual surroundings always work for me though I travel (too) much this year which almost makes me long for the usual stuff. I'm blessed to be able to travel much though:-) I love it!
It sounds like you would love Madeira; sunshine and walking is what this island is all about. I like your attitude of state of mind; very true. Go steady :)
Madeira is on the bucketlist! First I'll see Capri this year and Sicily I have to revisit as well. I should meet a rich Italian to travel to other gems in this world as well LOL. Know any (rich) Italian around my age? ;-)
I think it's a matter of choice. You could try holidays at Ibiza and forget about discount courses. At Ibiza you reconnect with nature, yourself, the sun the sea and the Ibiza magic. Afterwards you come back completely refreshed, ready to rock.
I recognize the feeling of plunging into holidays:-) Stress should be a non issue in our lives but unfortunately it isn't. When was your last holiday? Where did you go to?
Well, it has been ages I feel since my last blissful trip, it was in the mysterious Machu Picchu, really brought goose bumps
WOW! That must have been an amazing trip! Hope you'll have a next one soon:-)
Ya, hope so
That's a great way to start the Christmas holidays. Buying those presents can be very stressful. Having it done and ready makes it possible to enjoy this wonderful season to the max:-)
True. Life would be borig without a holiday break once in a while. When I couldn't afford expensive trips, I visited cities nearby and booked a hotel. Even like that you feel you've been 'out' for real. Recharged too.
