      They absorbed what was basically a half Poland size post-Soviet state, and THEN paid for the entirety of Eastern Europe to recover from getting butt-fricked by Stalinist thugs, all of whom greedily devoured all their vacation days and now reee about muh EuroTrump privliledge, as if they weren't the original immigrant bomb making the entire Western underclass piss themselves from having to share their dole
      You know what? You're not victims, you're not getting bombed, you're not living on the street, in fact you're the ones who have the opportunity to educate yourselves and get a better job instead of b***hing about how you don't get the same Eurodole anymore and OD on opiates and stupidity

        'Away from home' is vague as frick. Does it mean travel abroad? Does it count if it's your own country but you stay at inn or hotel? Does it count if you just visit family or friend for a week?
        Anyone can afford to stay at their parents place for a week that's literally free.

          Stop being autistic, it's obviously about the average vacation where you go somewhere and stay at the hotel like everyone else

            But the cost of such vacations varies incredibly widely.

      In Finland most vacations are to the Med countries. Beach holidays and such. Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey are pretty popular destinations.

        We tend to spend almost our entire life outside in the summer. And when the sun shines 24/7 you get fricked.
        Pic is me from being shirtless for like 2 hours between 21:00 and 23:00 in August.
        I've had two "risky" spots removed in the last five years.

      Isn't this basically communism.
      Used to be like this in the soviet union from what I heard.

      no in the soviet union the state directly ran the economy and nothing was produced because of lack of incentives, supervision and general incompetence of bureaucrats and managers who were appointed based on loyalty and ideology instead of actual merits, not to mention they invested all the R+D budget on the military and underfunded consumer goods production

      places with good healthcare where people do regular check-ups and are diagnosed early
      vs
      places with shitty healthcare where almost nobody goes to the doctor or does any controls or early treatments

      It's the same with the mental health or dental hygiene maps.

          At least you actually went to a doctor.

            And our hospitals are still full of (mostly old) people somehow.

              Because many only get to the hospital only when in the worse conditions.
              I know of old people with very bad conditions and some refused to go to the doctors.

        Having a spot checked takes 5-10 minutes at most. I have family members who have had spots and moles for years they refuse to see the doctor for. I don't understand them. Just call the nearest doctors office, book a time and go.

          Imagine that situation but multiplied several times. People here don't trust healthcare at all.
          It's not just the embarrassment or pride factor, many people don't want to seem weak or as a burden to others, like it's probably in the case of your loved ones, but it's also people being moronic and thinking they know better than doctors and believing any dumb rumor or any commercial for "natural" pills on TV.

    Strong unions makes the wage structure more compact. The lowest workers have higher salaries, the highest workers have lower salaries. More people have nice lives. However I thought Germans had strong unions that make this happen?

        Communism is managerialism, you just have the state owning everything instead of offshore capital investment vultures, the state spying on you instead of Google and Meta, and so on. You are basically living in Communism without any of the benefits of them pretending they are doing it For The People.

        Labour Unions is a way for you to sit down with your pals and tell your boss to pay up with that one week annual vacation if they want you to treat you like slaves the other 51

        Stop being moronic. It's a useless survey if there are no definitions on what a vacation away from home means. Everyone will have their own definitions and will answer accordingly.

        It means flying to the South on a package holiday, getting skin cancer and a hangover, or ending up remembering while you would rather be at work than spending time with your estranged spouse and spoiled brat kids

    I drive around 1300km every summer up north for a week of fishing, it’s around the same distance of someone flying from paris to croatia, but i bet that doesn’t count as vacation in polls like these because it’s in my country and live in a tent for the week.

    How can you not "afford" a vacation? Seems to me the problem is inability to plan 6 months ahead, maybe it's a cultural thing

      if you make €500 a month, how are you going to have decent living condiitons, a healthy diet, pay for transportation, and be able to stay in another city at a hostel or something, whilst having any kind of fun at all? The math just doesn't add up

        No EU-country has wages that low and if they do I'm sure the cost of housing etc. compensates it anyway

          Bulgaria's is like €350, I think. While I think you are right, hotels or rentals are not THAT much cheaper in Eastern Europe. I can imagine that it would still be very hard to save up for a vacation with that kind of pay

      I'm going to Japan again this summer for three weeks as usual. I'm as average as they come in terms of income. Traveling hasn't become more expensive, just groceries and fuel. Hell, leaving Sweden might benefit my wallet kek.
