The times we live in are characterized by excessive business engagement of individuals, extensive working hours, and time-exhaustive business involvement. With the inevitability of technology making us connected at all times and available at any moment (meaning, rarely free), the question arises on the number of days per year a person, let us call this person a tourist for these purposes, allows him- or herself to be barefoot and carefree, to unload and recharge (batteries or energy), to just stare at the sea and become one with a deck chair at, let us say, the amazing Adriatic.
