Those who choose travel as their life may not be able to ever stop … it was like that in the past too, but today and tomorrow, not stopping will increasingly become an imperative. When I began to go out into this world, I did it because I loved travelling, and I still spend most of my time travelling. I was only fascinated by adventure in exotic places, but over time, I also began to appreciate what was right in front of me, even just a few kilometres from home … and to have an appetite for feeling the same emotions as those living on the other side of the world.
But the travel agents of the new decade will need more than passion, they will need to create the right mix between personal attitudes and professional skills.
