If you want to find out how many estimated Europeans are conceived in an IKEA bed, how to unblock Netflix in Europe, and one random action that could land you in jail in France, then check out the infographic below.

  1. Haha, the IKEA fact is so funny! And can I believe that from Switzerland. In Slovenia nobody does that either, Sundays are for resting. But I have no clue if it’s ilegal!


    1. The Ikea one made me laugh too 🙂

    No, really? Forbidden to wash your car on Sundays in Switzerland? Why?? I had no idea:)


  3. Didn’t realize that much of the Netherlands was below sea level. A little unnerving


  4. this was so fun!!! Of course my favorite was the Ikea bed fact! FABULOUS! The scariest was the wife carrying contest….I would be afraid hubby might lose that one!


  5. I love infographics too! My favourite is the one about the London Underground escalators. I feel like Seoul’s subway escalators wouldn’t be far off!


    1. I’ve seen that one too. There are some great ones out there, I love when things are displayed visually.


  6. Really love these infographics you’ve been using in your posts recently! Ryan would love Spain is he knew about them shooting quail from a cannon(?!). I really want to know the reason for them doing that haha!


  7. Napoleon is also one of the pigs in Orwell’s Animal Farm. He’s the pig who represents Stalin, so that could also be why the French aren’t so keen on it as a pig name.
