Good quiz, didn't get Turkey (like a poor American's Thanksgiving)

Lol. But to set the record straight, not all Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving. Two of our family members can't eat turkey because it triggers migraines so we usually serve roast chicken or pork, (along with cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, of course!)

The number of people going to the countries seems really low, though i don't know in which period of time they are. Also no tropical countries like Thailand that are otherwise quite popular tourist destinations, only european. Are you sure everything is correct in this? It all just seems so strange

Yes, the quiz is correct. See the column header: "Thousands".

I'm speculating, but I think due to the proximity of the countries on the list to Britain compared with tropical countries like Thailand, flights are considerably cheaper and therefore more Brits can afford to go, and probably more regularly...

Haha it does seem obvious, but Robin clearly demonstrated a need for that explanation. I appreciate your sarcastic input though!

Thailand is quite far away. but the list is still dominated by countries that are much sunnier than the UK. Spain (Tenerife, Costa del Sol, Barcelona, Majorca, Ibiza being top destinations), France (French Riviera), Italy (Rome, Naples, Sicily), Portugal, Greece, Turkey (Antalya being the popular destination)... Brits obviously like sun. I'm betting Thailand isn't too far down the list, either.

We do like the sun, but a lot of those places come with interesting history and culture, so for those of us who like those sorts of things, it's win win!

You'd find a similar pattern for most countries Majority of short term tourists go to the nearest warm resort areas
