This sounds wrong, not in terms of statistics, of which I am not aware, but in terms of people’s behavior:
Here in the U.S. the annual average is a measly 13 days (Compared to Italyâ€™s 42 and Franceâ€™s 37): a pittance if you include time-off needed for weddings, complicated mid-week errands, parole violations and the odd humdinger of a hangover. Yet somehow more than 1/3rd of Americans donâ€™t use all their vacation each year.
Quoted from Scott Berkun’s blog.
I don’t have any statistics handy about the average annual vacations in Cyprus, but my estimation is that it’s somewhere around 20 days. And I’d say about 2/3rds take all their vacation days and then some more with sick leaves, unnoticed missed days, emergencies, and stuff like that. And there are, of course, 15 public holidays or so every year.
I love this country!
