Ellen is Most Popular Travel Companion

At least it would be a hilarious vacation. World travelers say that, if they could travel with any of the top celebrities on Twitter, they would most want to take a trip with Ellen DeGeneres. The new Living Social survey also found that people would also like to travel with Oprah Winfrey, Taylor Swift, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Katy Perry.

Another interesting fact from the survey: nearly 40 percent of U.S. travelers have stolen something from a hotel during their stay. The most common items taken: towels, bathrobes, batteries, and pillows. Sadly, I am not surprised by this at all.

Something else that did not surprise me: Americans are vacation-starved. On average, Americans had 16 days off last year, compared to Australians, who had 27 days, Canadians (21 days), Irish (28), and those from the U.K. (23). Two-thirds of employed Americans said they took at least one staycation last year. This is one of my favorite types of vacations!

What do you think about the findings of this survey? Would you take something from a hotel? How many days did you have off last year and where did you go?
