    We Americans only get 2 weeks a year of holiday, once we get out and join the workforce. The missus & I are heading up to take a cruise around Alaska for those 2 weeks. We gotta make every minute count.

    New Zealand. I hate the sun. Also, haven't been and am going on an Outward Bound course. Might go to Greece too, though. Depends on certain of my friends being available.

    Plus, I live in China, so does going back to England (my homeland) count as a holiday? Or am I permanently on holiday out here. Wait, judging by my usual pastimes out here, yes, yes I am.

    I'm going to the Netherlands to visit as many art galleries as I can, I'm just tingling with excitement thinking about all those paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, Frans Hals, etc.

    The Netherlands is by far and away the best painting country ever, followed by Italy, Britain, Spain then Germany, so looking forward to my trip immensely.

    Let's see... As the statistics clearly show to us, in only 3 days, Greece is a popular destination for tourists. We have 4.17% of sample, who would like to spent their holidays in Greece. Worldwide there are approximately 500 million tourists.
    In that case we have: 500,000,000/100*4.17 = 20,850,000 tourist for Greece this year. Hmmm... Last year we had 14,000,000 million tourist total... And of course 20,850,000-14,000,000 = 6,850,000 more tourists... As percent is approximately 48.93% increase of tourist arrivals...
    Supposing that every tourist spents in average about 55 euros per day and stays for holidays 10 days we have... 55*10 = 550 euros per capita.
    So we have; 20,850,000*550 = 11,467,500,000 euros. 11,467 million euros...NOT BAD AT ALL!!!
    Greece have a total population of 12 million people and falls to each sharing; 11,467,500,000/12,000,000 = 955.63 euros!! Thank you for contributing in our income!!! (You are welcome and looking forward to see you and the next summer of course...! )
    Let's see if this can help our minister of national economy; For 6,850,000 more tourists this year and 550 euros per capita, we have; 6,850,000*550 = 3,767,500,000 euros more income for state's coffer. Greece's deficit is 6.7% of NGP. National GP is 210 billion euros so we have; 6.7/100*210,000,000,000 = 14,070,000,000. 14 billion euros!!! (Damn Olympics!!! The Games costed us 7-10 billion euros!! ) (Mods, you may move this at the Ludus Magna; to many calculations ! BTW Beirut, congrats for your promotion! )
    The total reduction of deficit will be; 3,767,500,000/210,000,000,000*100 = 1.79%, thus we have 6.7-1.79 = 4.91% total decifit.
    I'm going to announce this conclusion to the ministers of national economy and tourist development...
    OH WAIT!!!! DAMN!!!! Only myself has voted for Greece until now!!! Statistics sucks!!
    (mister minister!!!)

    Have fun!!
