OK, don’t worry, I’m not hating on the good ol’ US of A, but come on guys. Are you feeling like a slave to the cubicle? Many complain that we Americans simply work too many days out of the year. Are you one of the many? Then consider living in Lithuania, where residents get 41 days, or eight weeks, off every year. They get in trouble if they take any less than 28 days off, in addition to the 13 public holidays. Lithuanian Dina Kopilevic said ”people take a lot of time, especially in the summer, because a lot of them own places outside the cities, in villages and by the sea. We take it for granted, probably.” A lot of Americans own places outside the cities too, but that doesn’t count as an excuse for us to take more time off! 

So if you lived in Lithuania, you’d get oodles of time for vacation, and you could use it for the incredible skiing they have there. Go ahead and indulge us, skiurlaub-infos.com:
