The traveller is motivated by experiences that differ completely to everyday life and where there is an opportunity to learn: different customs, cultures, languages, cuisines, scenery and activities. This new class of traveller seeks out the exotic and looks for curiosity-satisfying experiences that are ‘brag worthy’ and unique to share with friends and family back home. Find out more.
