Travellers are embracing new sources of advice and inspiration.

Experienced travellers favour blogs and travel content sites for inspiration to help them choose their destination, reflecting an appetite for more background on the places they plan to visit.

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.”

Anais Nin

 “Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

Anthony Bourdain

“He who would travel happily must travel light.”

Antoine de St. Exupery

“The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.”

Henry David Thoreau
