  1. I enjoyed the link on why Americans dont vacation, I have always taken all of my available days. One reason might be that companies will pay out unused days and that is an incentive not to use them, it seems like many companies in the UK will not do this.

    • That’s a really good point! I can definitely understand someone in a tight position financially wanting that extra cash, but not realizing the value in time off.

      I think because Americans have such regimented work lives, we feel like we have to “make the most” of our travels. Because we don’t have government-mandated time off, our vacations become just as planned out and particular as work! I hope this changes one day soon…
