I stopped breastfeeding because my baby went on a week vacation with his grandmother. Is it bad to breastfeed him again when he gets back ?

I'm not qualified to answer this question though Dove & Jodi seem to have given reasonable answers. I'm more interested why you're asking this question. It's as though you want a certain answer to show to someone else who has a different opinion to you!

Just saying!

Bad? No, not at all. If you haven't been pumping your supply will need a lot of help and if he's been taking bottles he may or may not easily re-latch to the breast... but, of course, it isn't BAD to resume breastfeeding. Just might be difficult (but worth it if you can both get it going).

No, but it could be difficult if he has been taking formula and bottles. If you haven't been pumping your milk, you may also find it difficult to reestablish your supply. But there is no harm in breastfeeding him again.
