    Question Vacation Europe

    From newspapers:

    "When Neil Dingman recently went on a vacation to Europe, he took his iPhone with him, with no intention of using it much."

    "An Edmonton writer discovered that instead of going to Europe, Sather took a vacation in Hawaii."


    How is "a vacation to someplace" different from "a vacation in someplace"? Or is one of them wrong?

    It depends on how you phrase it. Look at the verb "went". (went to Europe)

    So, indeed, are both possible?
