Quartz news website notes that, as a recent survey by the European Commission reveals,
EU residents generally stay in their home country during their time off—57% of people in the EU last year took a trip within their own country. More than 80% of Greeks, Croatians, and Italians took time off close to home in 2013, while Maltese, Belgians, and Luxembourgers were much more keen to go abroad, with fewer than 30% reporting that they took a domestic holiday last year.The survey also shows that people from crisis-hit countries plan not to go on holidays in 2014, while those from richer ones, like Austria or Sweden, believe they most certainly will. All in all, adds Quartz —
11% of EU residents say that it will be all work and no play in 2014, thanks to lousy economic conditions.
