Today’s episode is going to look a little different than normal. We’re discussing some travel trends and predictions and reading Booking.com’s 2023 Travel Predictions Report. We’ll be discussing our points of view on each discovery.
Travel is a way for us to feel fulfilled and add value to our lives. It’s how we add richness, create memories, grow as individuals, build our self-esteem, and “feel alive”.
Mark Twain once said “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness”, and we couldn’t agree more.
It’s also important to get to the roots of WHY you want to travel. This way you can make better planning and booking decisions so you have the best experience. This will lead to a better chance of having a transformative experience.
“People around the world are feeling overwhelmingly more optimistic about traveling in 2023 compared to 2022 and, despite some current instability felt globally, nearly three quarters (72%) report that traveling will always be worth it. The mood is shifting from one of hopeful uncertainty to bold adaptability. If 2022 was about the triumphant return of travel, 2023 will be about creatively reimagining it amidst the chaos. Nothing will be off limits and everything is on the menu as everyone seeks to find the right balance in a world of contradictions.”Booking.com’s 2023 Travel Predictions Report
