Traveling abroad is less frequent in the United States than it is in Europe. When all of the EU member countries are added together, however, this diminishes. For a Brit, crossing the Channel to France through the Chunnel is like traveling from Michigan to Ohio. It wasn’t a very memorable trip.
In order for this argument to be valid, you must look at the rate of European travel outside of the EU. And it isn’t quite as impressive as it seems.
The United States is equivalent to Europe in terms of area, but having a lower population. Americans do not need to fly outside of the country to enjoy the same sort of vacation that Britons do in France. The United States has a wide range of temperatures, hundreds of landmarks, deserts, city-sized woodlands, and lakes the size of small European nations, among other things. When compared to driving from France to Russia, traveling coast to coast in the United States allows you to see and experience more. Alligators, bears, mountain lions, wolves, and eagles are just a few of the animals found in the United States. As a result, even if Americans travel less, they may see more.
Because most European countries are small, you may see a lot of them in a short period of time while traveling around Europe. You can only visit a few states in the United States in a short amount of time.
While many Americans travel frequently within the country as well as to Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean, they seldom have the opportunity to see four or five countries in a few days unless they fly to Europe, and even traveling the entire country takes a long time.
It doesn’t help that Americans have far fewer vacation days than most Europeans.
