Bonjour Joakim ! Mmmmhhh, that's a tricky one. Instinctively, I would say it's wrong, it sounds really off to me as a native French speaker. So I looked around, and found some examples with it, mostly from non-natives, but also some French people, such as the case you quoted. However, only in the form of a question. You could not say: "Mes vacances vont bien." as it sounds like your holiday is a person! So I'd mark it as half correct, as it is definitely not the most colloquial way to say this, but can be found... I hope that answers your question! Merci et à bientôt !
