An interesting point in the survey were the reasons for people cutting their holidays short. Cost was certainly a factor, which is no surprise in the current economic climate. However what I found...well just plain sad actually, was that many people said they shortened their breaks because they missed their home comforts.
One of the only things I enjoy about returning from holiday, is climbing into my own bed! Apart from that, I could quite easily stay on a perma-vacation if money allowed! So could the rest of us benefit from this? While the people who miss the comforts of their domestic lives; pine for English tea, and their favourite television programmes, those of us who love travelling can relish new experiences, and make the most of the fact that they'll be flying home before we will!
What do you think? Is the two week holiday really in decline? Apart from family and friends, do you miss anything from home when you're on vacation?
