Survey o' the day

Commissioned by travel operation Trivago, and it asks what the French, my fellow Britons and sundry other nationals miss when on holiday abroad. It looks to be a self-selecting survey and only of its website users, and thus of zero statistical validity but tis amusing nevertheless. While I am at it, news mag Le Point should hang its head for cutting and pasting the press release without any attempt to re-write it.

Anyway, asked what they most missed, 24% of our Gallic chums missed their own bed, 15% the French language, 12% French food, 9% French TV (that high?) and 3% French wine. Adventurous, huh? However, credit to the 37% who say 'nothing at all'.

Data for other countries is only partial, but a pitiful 41% of my co-nationals miss their own bed, 34% of Italians miss Italian food (so hard to find outside Italy...OK, there may well be quality issues. ) and 19% of Spaniards miss Spanish food.
