Tired of being a doctor, lawyer, or industry chief? Take a reality break with www.VocationVacations.com. The new Oregon-based outfitter offers instruction with a pro vintner, horse trainer, racetrack manager, innkeeper, chocolatier, brew master, and more. The pay’s not great — in fact, you pay them — but how often do you get to try a new career on for size? One- to eight-day packages start at $499.
