Travel is number one: how the USA changed
Recent research demonstrates how Americans change their minds in the years. In past, they were mostly focused on investing their money to buy a house and create their own family (marriage and kids). Now, the time is change. Travel is number one. The 54% of the people prefer to explore the world and live unique experiences than to think about a family. Organize a trip and spend money on that is a great investment for them.
If you read the infographic above you can easily understand how in the USA is considering to travel before to get married. Travel is number one. Also, people are scared to not be able to do it after retirement. Because of health and money problems. During their career is also hard to find the time to go around the world properly. That is why it became a priority. Who has a big budget available goes to use it to pass the border and fly around the globe.
This hit me because this means that the society, at least in the USA is more oriented to know the world. They are true because of a trip worth more than any other experience in life. You can have fun, learn a lot, know better yourself, and also get decisions about your career or private life. What do you think? Are you part of the majority of the interviewed people? Is travel number one for you? Share your thoughts about the stats and about its meaning.
