Michelle Obama spent 42 days on vacation last year

August 14, 2011 - New York

US First Lady Michelle Obama spent 42 days travelling on vacation over the past year, the White House Dossier blog has found.

Her vacations include trips to Panama City, Fla., Martha's Vineyard, Hawaii, South Africa, Latin America, Vail, Colo., and her visit this week to her brother in Corvallis, Ore, reports the New York Post.

The figures don't include the first family's scheduled trip back to Martha's Vineyard this month.

Taxpayer dollars pay most of the cost of transporting the first lady and cover her security.
