While we all love a good getaway, a recent survey by Toronto-based G Adventures shows just how important travel can be. According to the results, 83 percent of people polled (a sample of G Adventures' "external network") believed travel is very important to their happiness—even more important than buying a house, having a baby or buying a car.
The survey also found several other interesting results. While men prefer to travel with their significant other, women would rather adventure with a friend. When it comes to work, more people would rather have days off to travel than a pay increase.
And where would people go if they had a free ticket anywhere? Find the answer to this question, as well as a depiction of all the survey results, in the infographic below.
