The ancient Mayan calendar ends on December 21 and many believe this signifies the end of the world. But what would Brits do with their last year on earth? New independent research commissioned by First Choice questioned more than 2,000 people and found that over a fifth of people wanted to jet off and see the world (22%).
According to a separate survey of 21 travel bloggers, India was the top destination on peoples’ bucket lists, with Iceland and China coming second and third. A third of those questioned also wanted to be in a beautiful place alone or with family, the moment the world ended.

Family is where the heart is for most Brits, as over half of the people surveyed (51%) chose spending time with loved ones as the number one thing to do in their final months. Some 6% of respondents said that they wanted to party and just 7% would most like to quit their job and relax, if 2012 was their last year on the planet.

The second survey of travel bloggers revealed that 47.5% of people would use social media to communicate with their friends, if they were the first person to know when the world was going to end.
