Weekly Photo Challenge – Travel Photo Collage

In the year 1998, I was promoted to be a 12-month school district administrator from a 10-month teacher position. Administrators had 22 vacation days a year, plus 10 days of personal or sick leave.

During my time of working, we were able to acuminate vacation days as many as we wanted. Some administrators acuminated enough days to retired one year early and received pay for the last year as vacation time. Some would cash-in the vacation days. I used some of the days for travel and saved some. The district policy had changed later on. Administrators being hired after a certain year, the vacation days were accumulative up to two years. They either used them or lost them.

Well, after I graduated from my doctorate program in the year 2000, with more than six weeks vacation time a year, my husband and I have traveled to quite a few countries and states. I started to get the dates confused. I decided to make a collage for each travel, and hang them on the wall as a quick reminder of where we have been. It works well. Here are some examples.

  1. You do get around, don’t you.

    And if you will forgive me correcting your post the word you need is “accumulate”
