how are you able to take 50 vacations? I haven't taken one in 5 years....

I work for a fortune 100 company that gives us so much vacation time which rolls over from year to year (up to a cap of about 400 hours) that right now I could take off about 7 weeks of vacation. Plus we have every Friday from memorial day to labor day off (paid). And we get a sabbatical every 5 years. The biggest problem I have with vacation time it taking off enough to stay under the cap.

Maybe they are self-employed or otherwise has a job that allows them to take vacations more often.

Maybe the vacation is “just” a weekend-vacation only requiring to take half a day off to have more time for transport.
