Just ask anyone in Vermont or Quebec. The best things in life take time. Like leisurely biking amid the Green Mountains of the Northeast, serene valleys and pristine lakes. Savoring the fresh air. Hand-pressed apple cider. Peaceful winding roads. Handicrafts. It makes sense really, that perfection can't be rushed. Like this perfect vacation.
