The Last Spanish Vacation, part 1

The concept of taking a vacation is a recent invention and has been developed through the last two centuries. Once the idea of travel and recreation was a luxury of wealthy people alone, taking a break from work for reasons other than weekly observance of the Sabbath, was frowned upon. In modern days we take it for granted, the well deserved break from work that allows us to charge the batteries for another year of work. With the current situation in Spain maybe vacation once again will be a luxury of the wealthy people alone.
