2020 Will Be the Year of Travel Discovery and Exploration According to Cruise Planners
The year 2020 will be a year of new beginnings, renewals, opportunities and a year of travel discovery and exploration. “The constant FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) is very real and afflicts many travelers and aspiring travelers especially with the ‘Insta-effect’ of today’s social media driven generation,” says Michelle Fee, CEO and founder of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative.
“Instagram has changed how people are traveling.”
As a result of FOMO, travelers are now moving toward JOMO (Joy of Missing Out) by switching off their devices to take a digital detox and staying off social media accounts for short periods of time. They realized the constant fear of missing out and racing through as much as possible is actually making them miss out on their own lives.
#1. The Art of Slow Travel
In 2020, responsible travelers will focus on sustainable travel. Not only does our sense of time speed up as we age, travelers want time to slow down to make the most of each moment of their vacation. They would rather focus on an unforgettable journey, like taking a longer scenic route on iconic trains (think Venice Simplon-Orient Express, Royal Scotsman, Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, Blue Train), exploring second-city or lesser known cities to limit their impact on the environment (Osaka instead of Tokyo, Marseille instead of Paris, Belfast instead of Dublin), and are looking for ways to disconnect on castaway vacations – a getaway to secluded islands (Vieques Island off mainland Puerto Rico, Salema that is three hours from Lisbon, Portugal, or Vinh Hy Bay that’s away from busy Hanoi, Vietnam).
