But on a Netflix vacation you can have food from all over the world from the comfort of your couch!


14. You expose yourself to all sorts of diseases and potential food poisoning when you go on a vacation IRL.

When you stay at home you probably won’t get sick, but if you do you’re already laying on your couch watching Netflix. Hooray!

15. A real vacation inevitably has to end, forcing you to go back to your normal boring life until you can afford to go on vacation again… which could be a while.

And you’ll lie to yourself to try to get through the “post-vacation hangover.”

But a Netflix vacation never has to end!
