They vacation at the same spot each year.
Sounds like several German armies from the past.

Wacky indeed :

For many, this schedule will have to timetable in some work-time for the adults – with just under a third of German employees telling a separate recent study that they work at least one to three hours every day while on holiday.

A depressing 14 percent said they do as much work when on holiday as they do in the office – which either means they have really dull holidays or great jobs.

Whats wrong with either of that?
If you like where you went, why not go again?

I generally switch the phone off when on holiday – and take a break from the internet too, so no emails.

Maybe it's just me.

I guess the German attitude might be expressed as, "I know what I like. I like what I know."
But working on vacation sounds ridiculous to me.

Well I always looked at Renaissance fair as a working vacation…

I could only wish they worked during their vacation. Seems whenever I try to contact someone in Germany, they're on another holiday or vacation.
