Well, just ask me if I’m fired up about this — and I’ll say “yes!”
The European Union commissioner for enterprise and industry, Antonio Tajani, has stated that getting to take a vacation to a foreign country is a basic human right. He put it thisaway:
Traveling for tourism today is a right. The way we spend our holidays is a formidable indicator of our quality of life,
Brussels has agreed, declaring that “tourism is a human right and pensioners, youths and those too poor to afford it should have their travel subsidised by the taxpayer…” It is expected that the European Union will subsidize about 30% of the cost.
NOW we are talking, eh?
If we can only get President Obama to agree with this (and why wouldn’t he?) — we’ll be packing our bags! Me and Momma are going to Milan or maybe Athens or Paris or someplace really exotic. And maybe, by the time we get there, housing will be a basic human right and they’ll give us a house to live in too!
Wow. VA-CA-SHUN! I’m sayin.
Is this a great time to be alive or what?
