The British have the honour of being the most prudish of those interviewed as only 20 percent can imagine getting completely nude during their travels. Admittedly, not all Germans are deeply enthusiastic about these cultural habits - but you shouldn't be surprised if you meet one who is. This morning Expedia released its Flip Flop Report, announcing that for the third year running, Germans are the most likely of folks to sunbathe in the nude -- which, of course, is completely amazing. But even in western Germany, attitudes toward public nudity are more relaxed than in most countries. Maybe it's because I'm German.

In Germany, stripping down to your birthday suit is a popular pastime for people of all ages, shapes and sizes. The "Kaffee und Kuchen" coffee and cake tradition allows Germans to eat cake any afternoon, like British teatime - although most people now indulge in this treat on weekends only.
