MYTH: I don't have enough time off work to go somewhere.
REALITY: Relative to our neighbors abroad, Americans are practically caged animals. We average 16.6 paid vacation days a year. In France, the average worker has a whopping 39 days of vacation! Yet 36 percent of Americans don't even use all of their vacation days. So until you can relocate to France, might as well turn off the computer, ditch the BlackBerry, and hit the road already!
