If you want longer holidays, Europe is the place to be. A recent survey commissioned by the Expedia online travel agency reveals that the French, Spaniards and Brazilians are most lightly to take the longest holidays during the working year. The 2012 Vacation Deprivation study shows that while Europeans can comfortably take up to 30 days of leave, North American workers are on par with Mexicans and South Koreans, taking only 10 days off per year.
That’s right, our friends across the Atlantic get the most amount of time for hanging on the beach, exploring cities and catching up with friends. In fact, Expedia believes that Europeans see holidays from work as a duty rather than a perk. Most Europeans enjoy between 25 and 30 days off a year before religious and state holidays. Asians are by far the most diligent in their work, taking the smallest number of vacation days in the year. Even though Japanese workers are on average given 13 days away from their job, most opt for a five-day break.
