Raw pastry dough? CAN it be left out? Sure! Should it be left out? Depends on what kind of pastry dough it is. I wouldn't leave pie dough out since it relies on being cold to work properly.
I leave butter out on the counter all the time....as long as its not going to be there for a long period of time, pretty much any solid fat should be fine out of the refrigerator. It's a preservative after all.
I wouldn't leave raw pastry dough out, but I'd leave something with baked pastry dough out for a day or two, depending on the filling and how warm it is in the house (hot summer, I'd put it in the fridge).
Yes, you can take a vacation.
