Technology-savvy Millennials are seen by many in the travel and tourism industry as the new key segment to generate much of the targeted growth in the coming years. And, those 1.8 billion people worldwide do display particular characteristics that will heavily influence the future. According to recent data, Millennials are more optimistic and plan to travel more frequently and spend more on travel than boomers in the next five years.

They want to experience new cultures, blend experiences across different types of trips, encounter and engage with local people and have authentic experiences.

MACHNEYUDA

The news back home are dominated by conflicts and stabbings in Jerusalem, bombs and shootings in Tel Aviv. In reality, I am find myself walking through cities that are filled with warmth and love and the atmosphere is very different to what media proclaims.

CITY GUIDE MADRID

When it comes to decide upon your next city break, Madrid is most likely not one of those initial destinations you have in mind. London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Lisbon or Barcelona, probably all come before the Spanish capital, which is tucked away in the heart of Spain, at almost 700 meters above sea level. Madrid is not only home to two world-famous football teams, Real, and its bitter rival, Atlético, but also to more than three million people, which makes it rank the sixth biggest city in Europe. Its cultural heritage and historic feel across its neighborhoods turn the city into one of the most livable places in the world according to Monocle. I have resided in this municipality for now almost 10 months, in order to complete my Master's degree.
