As many american papers have written the United States is the only developed country in the world without a single legally required paid vacation day or holiday. Instead in the European Union there are (more or less) four work weeks of paid vacation.
It’s enough to remember that Austria, which guarantees workers the most time off, has a legal minimum of 22 paid vacation days and 13 paid holidays each year. In Usa, generally, a worker receives 16 paid vacation days and holidays in a year. One in four Americans does not have a single paid day off. Based on a report released by the Center for Economic Policy and Research identified the countries where workers get at least 30 days off a year.
Several nations providing workers with a great deal of time off can afford to be generous. Germany, where the economy remains strong, had an unemployment rate of just 5.5% in 2012. Similarly, New Zealand’s unemployment rate was just 6.9% last year. Both are well below the 8.0% Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) unemployment rate, as well as the 8.1% rate in the United States. Fly from London.
Japan is a beautiful country, full of culture and with an incredible history. During the last ten years, Japanese cuisine has been enjoying a global boom but we have to say that the country’s food culture is not necessarily correctly understood.
To try to understand more japanese cuisine there is GURUNAVI where it’s possible to find an accurate and authentic information from more than 500,000 restaurants nationwide and a network of producers in every city and municipality, and its community of about 20,000 chefs.
During the past years, GURUNAVI has provided detailed information on the Tokyo metropolitan area through its “Let’s Enjoy Tokyo” site, operated in partnership with Tokyo Metro. In addition, its “Gurutabi” site has been the definitive source of regional information contributed by local people for the past three years.
“Japan Trend Ranking” will link with these daily updated sites to provide detailed, accurate, and fresh local information. GURUNAVI has previously launched initiatives focused on inbound tourism under the theme of dining spots popular with foreign visitors. With the launch of “Japan Trend Ranking” and its concept of “Japan, one visit is never enough,” the project to create Japan enthusiasts overseas is about to get fully under way.

Everybody knows that Greece is not living a good period, speaking about its economic situation: Greece, after a gradual decrease in hotel prices since 2008, is now among the four cheapest countries of Europe for holidays.
Because of the lower prices, this summer are returning a lot of tourists in record numbers. We remember that the last year many tourists didn’t go to Greece because it was a period of riots against the government. Data shows prices fell by 15.2 percent in May 2013 compared to the same period last year, while compared to May 2011 the prices have dropped by more than 20 percent. Following this way Greece is becoming the most affordable holiday destination in Europe.
We remember that Greece is strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa and has land borders with Albania, the Republic of Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north, and Turkey to the northeast. The Aegean Sea lies to the east of mainland Greece, the Ionian Sea to the west, and theMediterranean Sea to the south. Take a plane fron London.
