Discussion on: To Code, or Not to Code on Vacation: That is My Question

Really nothing had changed from my day to day activities other than the setting and that I was working on fun problems by choice.

I think this is the important sentence. You say "nothing had changed" but actually quite a lot had changed.

Of course, it's often very good to completely distance yourself from work-related activities but at least for me, hacking away on some funny projects with zero pressure, zero deadlines and knowing I can just stop working on it if I don't enjoy it, is a great way to relax.

I got into this industry because I loved coding. That has not changed so on my free time, if I have time and energy and I get excited about coding, I'll code to my heart's content.
