Whether to discover something new or to just take a break from the daily grind – most Swiss don’t pass up the chance to go on holiday. In the summer, the classic beach holiday and multi-day city trips tend to be most popular. These days, many Swiss head to Southern Europe and like to spend their summer holiday in Greece and Spain. The Canary Islands and Balearic Islands continue to be popular destinations in this regard.
For urban travel, many Swiss like to travel to popular destinations like London and Paris, as well as other more distant metropolises such as Bangkok, Dubai, and New York. Especially in the cold winter months, more and more Swiss head towards warmer temperatures. Thus, places like Thailand, Bali, and the Canary Islands are beloved travel destinations for a break from the cold weather during Christmas and New Year.
Destinations closer to home, however, continue to be just as popular as before: Swiss mountain ranges are destinations worth traveling to any time of the year for hiking and winter sport enthusiasts.
In terms of the amount of school vacation per year, there are some differences amongst European countries. With 12 to 16 weeks of vacation, Switzerland finds itself in about the middle of the scale. Depending on where certain holidays fall, the yearly sum of vacation days can vary a bit. The students in Bulgaria enjoy the most vacation in Europe. There, students get 14 to 19 weeks off per school year. At the other end of the spectrum, Denmark, the Czech Republic, and Macedonia only have an average of 12 weeks of school vacation a year.
When dividing up school vacation days for the year, there are some differences amongst various countries due to climatic conditions. Thus, southern countries, due to intense heat in the summer, tend to have longer summer vacations than countries in the north. Here as well, Bulgaria leads the way with up to 15 weeks of summer vacation. As far as school vacation in the summer goes, Switzerland finds itself once again in the middle of the pack compared to other European countries with an average of 9 weeks. Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands have the shortest summer vacations. In these countries, students get a maximum of 7 weeks free from school.
Sending greetings to others far away while traveling was a must for a very long time for every traveller. Friends and family at home were happy to get a little souvenir showcasing various sights at your travel destination along with an exotic postage stamp and personal greetings on the reverse side. Due to the rise in popularity of smartphones, WhatsApp, Facebook, and others, the way holiday greetings are sent has changed a bit. Nowadays, many travellers just send their friends and family a few photos using their smartphone.
Even the classical postcard has seen some changes thanks to technology. Nowadays, you can use an app to design your own individualised postcards online and then send them directly to the recipient per post. The individual design and creation of postcards with personal photos while on the go is especially popular amongst younger generations.
Thus, postcards are far from becoming obsolete. For many travellers, sending people greetings while on vacation is an integral part of travelling.
