These stats are always very frustrating to me. I consistently try and educate friends that travel can be affordable, yet they still let those vacation days go. I hope that our society encourages travel more in the future.

Same here. And hope so too. Travel is important, now more than ever. And as my grandpa advised me a long time ago, do it while you can and not when you cannot.

I've experienced this first hand - an American guy who took a sabbatical from work (which was only 3 weeks) still managed to work pretty much every day of his trip! Definitely something I wasn't used to seeing before!
