A study by Jet Cost found that people are lying about their vacations.

The study surveyed over 4,000 Americans and found that two-thirds exaggerated the details of their experience away.

The top three reasons were the weather, 34 percent, quality of accommodations, 29 percent, and the amount of sightseeing they did, 27 percent.

Other reasons included the amount of alcohol they consumed during their trip and how much money they spent.

68 percent admitted to embellishing how much they enjoyed their trip, and 52 percent said they wouldn’t admit if their vacation was a failure.

10 percent admitted to posting fake pictures online, and there are now websites that help you do so, such as Fake A Vacation.

The website takes pictures of you and your family and superimposes them on backgrounds of famous vacations spots such as the Grand Canyon, Disney Land, and the beaches of Hawaii.
