“Going anywhere nice this year,” the hairdresser queries as she starts her process of small talk.
“Nothing planned yet, but Im going for four days to Berlin in April” I inform her.
“That will be a lovely holiday, never been there myself,” she states.

But it isn't a holiday. I specifically said four days. Everyone knows that is a trip, right?
Like really it is just a long weekend Thursday – Sunday. How could she possibly have mis-interpreted that?
A holiday is seven days or more, probably over ten days really to suffice the 'holiday' title.
Over the last few years a “holiday” to me also needs to include a long haul flight or at least a different continent and usually has to have some sort of “adventure days” and “relaxing days.”
That is a holiday to me.
Not a city break, or a get away weekend or a brief rendezvous.
What does a holiday mean to you?
