How to Maximize Your Vacation Days 2019

Does anyone know where January went?


Because I have honestly no idea, haha. Anyway, if you’re a full-time worker it’s probably time for you to plan your vacation days for the year. I’ve counted and found out how you can be able to go on vacation for a total of 47 days and only use 18 of your vacation days! Keep on reading to find out how.

I’ve actually never really had to do the “vacation days math” for myself since I’ve either been a student or a freelance worker and therefore been able to be off pretty much whenever I wanted my whole life, haha. But you know, I have people around me that I want to travel with and they have a limited amount of days each year of work and that’s why I’ve counted on how to maximze those vacation days.

This post is mainly for you guys who live in Sweden since I’ve counted the days around our Swedish public holidays. And yeah I know that many people don’t work the regular 9-5, Monday to Friday, but this post are for the people who does.

  1. Trevliga tips. I år blir det nog att antingen bila mig ned/upp i landet då vi snart får oss en fyrfotad familjemedlem. Dock osäker vart/när. ?

  2. Så smart inlägg! Jag åker faktiskt mitt emellan dessa datum, nu sista veckan i februari och sedan i slutet av maj haha! Lyxen av att vara student som du skrev ovan 😉
