Trending in Travel 2017 – What’s New for Travel Buffs in the Year Ahead

The purpose of traveling from one destination to another can be manifold, be it local or international travel. There is the business traveler, the impulsive traveler, the reluctant traveler who has to travel for a certain purpose whether he likes it or not, and last but not the least, the recreational traveler which is the main focus of this article – tourism.

Tourism, in the real sense of the word, involves recreational travel including domestic and international tourism. International tourism has both “incoming and outgoing implications” and has a great role to play in the economies of many countries.

In fact, many such countries give it great importance and are continually improvising to attract more and more tourists every year as the profit has a ripple effect on businesses like hotels, other accommodation entities, railways, airlines, cruise liners, cab services, artefact dealers, guides, to name a few – it’s a win-win situation for all. It won’t be an exaggeration to say it’s a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide.

Therefore, obviously, we see new trends emerge every year to attract tourists from all over the world by tour operators and the tourism ministries of many countries whose economies depend on it – 2017 will no different in terms of attractive destinations, fun activities, safaris, adventure and much more.

Luxury Travelers:
Luxury travelers, as always, crave for less explored areas and customized local experiences and cuisine. Here are a few destinations that may cater to the whims and fancies of the luxury travelers seeking adventure and thrill of the unknown:

1. Make a dash for destinations that are going through rapid changes and may soon lose its charm. Cuba, while still an enchanting destination may not be the same a few years down the line.

2. Another dominant trend that is expected to pick up even more in 2017 is the African Safari for wildlife fans. There are those who like to chase around after wildlife in their preferred modes of transport like the Land Rover, Range Rover or any off-road four-wheelers they may fancy.

3. Then there are those who would rather have the wildlife come to them instead. Well, there are provisions for them as well in terms of properties in places like in South Luangwa, Okavango Delta, and Tarangire. The properties have pools, spa, bars and restaurants and for some guests relaxing around the lodge or camp is the perfect bush experience for them.

4. The green revolution is the in thing these days and tour operators see a great potential in this area for tourists and have included this facet in their plans. Charl Badenhorst, Operations Director for Sanctuary Retreats in Botswana, explains, “We wanted the camp to be completely off-grid and to use 100% renewable energy sources and after careful consideration, the decision was made to build our own solar farm for the camp.” Sanctuary Retreats do not encourage or allow hunting or even petting of animals – shoot with your cameras and not with your guns is the philosophy at Sanctuary Retreats.

5. “Uber’ luxury suite is the name of the game at the Sanctuary Retreats and they are ever improvising to cater to patrons’ expectation of luxury. At the “Sanctuary Chief’s Camp,” they have introduced the 2035 square feet “Geoffrey Kent Luxury Suite” offering unrivaled privacy and exceptional comfort. Geoffrey Kent, by the way, was a famous explorer after whom the suite is named.

6. Take a cruise to remote destinations to get the best of nature-focussed itineraries. The best way to explore the heart of a destination and experience the local culture and cuisine is the River Cruise. However, the choice of the cruise should be made with attention to your preferences, personality, convenience, value and the range of options and opportunities on offer.

The general trend that is emerging and is sure to continue into 2017 is seeking new territories and less explored, and even unexplored, destinations.

Multigenerational travel continues to remain a significant trend and is expected to continue in 2017 as well, with countries like Japan, Cuba, Africa, making its way onto the emerging destination list because of the mounting interest in less traditional locations for family travel.

Travel Trends Shift In Past and Upcoming Years

It is generally said that travel not only broadens one’s vision but also enlightens and expands a person’s worldly perspective of things. A man has always been fascinated by the adventure of travel, whether out of necessity, pleasure, trade or his restless spirit to discover and explore new territories to seek out riches or spices for trade in spices was a lucrative business.

Christopher Columbus, the Italian explorer, with the support of Isabella and Ferdinand, the ruling monarchs of Spain set sail with three ships, the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria to discover the new worlds hoping to reach India.

Similarly, Captain James Cook of England on board the H.M.S Endeavour lay anchor in Botany Bay far way in the South which later on was colonised by the British and now called Australia. Perhaps It goes without saying that two of the greatest travellers of all time were Marco Polo and IbnBatuta .

Marco Polo., (1254-1324) a young Venetian, was 17 only when he travelled to discover new places with his father and uncle. They travelled through Central Asia, Persia, through the Silk Route to China to become the guests of the Emperor of China, Kublai Khan.

Marco Polo returned to Venice after 24 years when Venice was at war with Genoa and Marco was thrown into prison. He narrated the fantastic tales of his long odyssey to his cell mate who chronicled them into books.

Muhammad Ibn Batuta or simply Ibn-e-Batuta (1304-1369) is recognized and acclaimed as the greatest traveler of all time .

Born in Morroco, Ibn Batuta at the age of 21 set out to perform the Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) which in those days took about 16 months. However, he did not return home till 24 years.

In those days travelling was very arduous and painstaking as the only mode of travel were ships, horseback, and camels

Despite the hardships and at many times at the risk of his life Ibn-Battuta travelled to almost all the countries that are now part of the Islamic world and also to many parts of non-Muslim lands.

His sojourn in different lands and his study of different cultures and customs were chronicled in a book the Rila translated journey which makes interesting and compulsory reading for aspiring world explorers.

With time, and great inventions, the mode of travel improved in a revolutionary manner and we now live in an age where supersonic travel by air, high-speed train travel, and even road travel has become easy.

With time trends and motives for travel changed also as previously say in the sixties travelling was done for professional purposes, or for permanently relocating to richer countries such as witnessed by the mass exodus to Europe and USA and Canada in the sixties and seventies when immigration laws were quite lax .

In the seventies, the oil and construction industry boomed and flourished and people from all over the subcontinent flocked to the Middle east for greener pastures.

Earlier, holiday travel was the domain of the rich and well to do especially in the developed countries of the world. and the famous destinations of the time were London, Paris, Rome New York and Tokyo to name a few.

Nowadays, everything has changed, have backpack will travel has been a mood of travel, trekking around the world or cycling for peace or motorcycling across the globe in increasing.

Now we live in the age of digital technology, where trends in almost everything have changed. The Internet mobile apps have given people a mother lode of information and people especially the young are very choosy and particular in their preferences in almost everything, eating habits, socializing, workplace or travel habits.

What will be Travel trends in present day 2016? Will it be the usually preferred destination, sightseeing, shopping and have fun and returning with a sun tan or will it go further than that?

Well according to Travel writers and experts, Travel trends will be huge in 2016.

In the early eighties, the term Brunch was coined with the combination of Breakfast and Lunch as one meal in the intervening time period of the two. These days another word relating to travel has cropped up and is known as leisure travel that is the combination of business and leisure travel on one ticket.

Businessmen, and top level executives travel at a very fast pace and hardly take the time to go on full vacations. Nowadays the trend is to when going on a business trip just take 2 or 3 days extra to enjoy the sights. For example, while on a trip to London, check out the historic town of Bath, just a 90-minute train ride from London and boasts ancient Roman baths with naturally soothing hot spas.

Cultural Festivals

So there you have with changing times come changing trends and travelling trends are also changing.

Clinton’s Campaign against Trump for Claiming Rigged Elections

There was a time, say almost 30 years ago that the perception of publicity was divided into two categories, good and bad or negative and positive. Any news report about a celebrity, a politician or a public figure having negative connotations would open a personal Pandora’s box and the media would probe the news in microscopic detail. If the theme subject centered around an extra-marital affair or a sex scandal , the end result would most likely be that the person’s career would be ruined.

A classic example would be the Profumo affair in 1961 involving John Profumo, the British Secretary of State for War. He was involved in a brief sexual relationship with a young 19-year old model Christine Keeler. The press picked up the story after which his career plummeted.

Initially, in 1963 he denied the tryst but later confessed. The conservative government of Prime Minister was badly shaken by the scandal which resulted in both Profumo’s and Macmillan’s resignations. Many attribute the defeat of the Conservative party in the 1964 elections to the scandal.

Profumo never held public office after that and to atone for his misadventure worked as a volunteer at Toynbee Hall, East London charitable trust.

Fast forward to 2016, in the age of digital technology, digital information, an age where attitudes and perceptions of things once considered promiscuous or immoral have now become standard fare.

Homosexuality, gay marriages, and issues before closet issues are now in the open, Gay marriage has been legalized in many states of the USA. Sex scandals though evoke interest in the media it is not looked upon with disgust and revulsion as in the yesterdays.

The media loves to pick up scoops and play it up especially the supermarket tabloids. So the million dollar question is how will the world and especially the American voters react to the racy photos of Melania Trump, the wife of the Republican nominee for the President of the United States, Donald Trump, posted in The New York Post.

The photos in question are of the time when Melanie was not married and an aspiring model in her late twenties.

Well although there will be some eyebrows raised and some shame from ultra conservative people the fact of the matter is that Trump with his foul mouth rhetoric already spewing forth venom against Muslims. Hispanics, blacks making both the USA as well as allies jittery he has had all the media attention focused on him.

So one can well ask if Donald Trump himself released or gave the go-ahead to the New York Post to publish the sleazy pictures. Was it an attempt to deflect media attention off him or simply wanted to stir the political hotpot further.

What do the American people in general think of the photos, will shock and revulsion make people change their decision who to vote for.

To state it bluntly, the voters do not care for these are trivial issues. The people are concerned with major issues such as the current San Bernadino Killings, The Orlando massacre all attributed to Muslim terrorism. The shooting of the young black youth by white police officers and the resulting killing of white police officers by black youth has simmered race relations in the United States.

The terrorist activities have spread far and wide and there is a growing sense of fear and insecurity pervading the atmosphere. Donald Trump is touching upon this psyche and touched a raw nerve on security issues.

Other issues centering along the campaign are the recent revelations of e-mail hacking that led to the resignation of the Democratic National Party (DNC) , Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schulz, The Donald’s overtures to the Russians to further hack DNC e-mails.

The latest controversy of the Presidential elections is Trump’s spat with the Muslim parents of a slain American soldier for which he has drawn a lot of flak from the Hillary camp as well as his own leading Republican leaders. This could well be Donald’s undoing for he has hurt a lot of armed forces families which will lead voters to think if He (Trump) is fit and worthy to become the Commander-in-Chief of US forces.

Donald Trump has his plate full, he is busy stoking the fires of the political cauldron to bother with what he consider a non-issue.

What about the NY Post itself, what made it publish those photos, was there a hidden conspiracy to smear the Donald. If that being the case, well the Donald does not outside help as he is doing a fine job of shooting himself in the foot.

It is surprising that The New York Post just released a story just after Hillary Clinton was nominated the DNC candidate for President.

Experts are of the opinion that The NYC Post a Republican paper which has already endorsed Donald Trump published the photos has greater and complex connotations and Donald Trump has planted a red herring in the media cycle.

Trump is well known for his blatant and consistent sexism and if the media or the public tears his wife apart he will gleefully contend the inherent hypocrisy in the media.

Melania is already uncomfortable about being exposed so much in the limelight especially after the Michelle Obama plagiarism issue.

The Donald camp is hoping that putting Melania in the crosshairs will make the liberals as retribution shame her to avenge sexist remarks against Michelle Obama .

If Donald Trump is complicit in the publication of the photos to make a political grandstand then what can one say, there seems to be no ethics, no sense of morality in the man. It seems that he will go to any lengths to win.

Donald Trump is insensitive and callous in his political campaign, he has already stirred a hornet’s nest.

Initially, when he threw the gauntlet in the ring there were conspiracy theories abound that Trump was doing it for Hillary to ensure that she wins and he personally being a businessman had no interest in winning at all.

All that seems to be a part of history and Donald trump will do anything to in an attempt to win even he has to strip his wife naked and parade her all the way to the White House.

The world is waiting and watching with bated breath the whole scenario but even a child knows that elections 2016 as it draws closer is going to be the ugliest, nastiest, most ruthless campaign.

It has been quite a political circus and the Donald and Hillary have both held their own up to now. The Hillary camp is more respectable, sensitive, and has a grip of the issues on the average voter.

All one can say in conclusion is the may the best man or in this case, most hopefully the best woman win.

Trump, speaking of photos pointed out that Melania is a beautiful woman and has done a lot of shoots in Europe long before he married.

Gary Hart, a former Senator fell from Grace and had to withdraw from the 1984 elections due to a sex scandal with a woman called Donna Rice. Similarly, Bill Clinton almost got impeached for the Monica Lewinsky affair.

But all that has now changed, social mores have now become less prim and as repeatedly said people do not care as there are greater issues at hand.

Melania Trump has already been in the spotlight for allegedly making a plagiarized speech at the GOP convention in Ohio, Cleveland and where her lines were like that of Michell’s Obama’s speech at the 2008 convention when Obama was nominated the candidate for the President.

100 Years of Fashion

Fashion by definition is Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often constant trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behavior and the newest creations of textile designers. Throughout centuries Fashion has been altering the social, economic and political landscapes benefitting and stimulating our society and during the process has promoted creativity.

Fashion in its earliest days was quite different than what it is now mainly because of the cultural diversity; but now that owing to the modern technologies the world has become a modern village fashion trends around the world can be observed to be quite similar.

The 1910s

The 1910s were known as the Era of the Nouveau Styled figure, meaning the “new style” and fashion back then was very conservative characterized by tall, stiff collars and broad hats. Materials like silk, linen, cotton and wool were quite common. In the year 1908, the stereotypical “S” shaped figure of women pulled into place by corsets was replaced by a much straighter and a natural look and the frills and the flounces of the previous decade were replaced by the hobble skirts which were a trend until late 1915.

On the right is quite popular Hobble Skirts of the early 1910s. Later on, the Fuller Skirts took the women by storm and replaced the Hobble skirts with their cut just above the ankles which made them more appropriate for both casual and outdoor wear.

1910s Outdoor wear

In the year 1914, the first world broke out altered the fashion trends of the 1910s and the dresses were now designed more by necessity than fashion. With the war came the neutral colors of wartime and particularly black which was quite common in the dress modes highlighted the need to mourn to mourn the increasing numbers of dead.

For the men, the fashion trend in the 1910s was not much different from what it is today. The crisp shirts, high collars, and bold stripes were a typical style with short, well-groomed hair was the popular look. The fabrics were all wool with hints of striping, checks, and plaid. The sack suits worn by men in the 1910s were long, plain, loose fitting (some might say baggy) suit jackets with wide lapels and a one to three button closure, a little similar to the modern suits which are slightly fitted and a little shorter in length. It was also a trend to wear a matching waistcoat or vest along with the suit. Topping a man with a hat was the last bit of fashion a well-dressed man required. The trendy colours in the era for the men were dark navy, grey, green and brown.

The 1920s

After the end of the first world war in 1918, the United States Of America benefitted from its role in the war. The optimism brought along by the end of the war relaxed the social customs and morals and the economy boosted. The fabrics used during this decade were wool, silk, cotton, rayon, georgette, and knits. During the Roaring ’20s, the style was a bit looser, with sleek, clean lines. The most memorable fashion trend was “the flapper” look. The flapper dress was functional and flattened the bust line rather than accentuating it .The straight-line chemise topped by the close-fitting cloche hat became the trending dress. The women were cutting their hair into bobs and wore iconic cloche hats. In the year 1925, “shift” type dresses with no waistline emerged breaking the norms and towards the end of the decade, dresses were being worn with straight bodies and collars.

The trending Chemise Dress that hung from shoulder to just below the knee with the waist dropping to the hips.

For the first time in centuries, women’s legs were seen with hemlines rising to the knee and dresses becoming more fitted. A more masculine look became popular, including flattened breasts and hips, short hairstyles such as the bob cut, and a more boyish figure.One of the first women to break the norms and wear trousers, cut her hair and reject the corset was Coco Chanel. She is believed to be the most influential woman in a fashion of the 20th century, Coco Chanel  and is said to do much for the liberation of women’s fashion.

In the dapperness of the Roaring ’20s the men’s fashion was the start of the menswear as we all know it today. An essential part of the men’s wear throughout the course of time has been his suit. The distinctive qualities about the men’s suit during the 1920s were the fitting and the quality of the suit.Suits were mostly made of thick wool or a wool tweed and pants made of wool based flannel which made them heavier than today’s suit materials but lighter than the previous decades. Suit jackets were either single or double breasted and featured 3 or 4 buttons up the front. The top button came to the center of the heart giving way to notch lapels. The highness of the suit lapels is what really sets 1920’s suits apart from suits of other eras.

1930s

Fur and floral patterns were quite trending during that era and makeup was an important element in getting dressed up. Shoulder pads were the new trend until the late 1930s. Trending in the menswear was sporting fedoras and double-breasted overcoats.

1940s-1980s

The Utility Suit.
In the 1940s the women’s fashion had wide padded shoulders, nipped in high waist tops, and A-line skirts that came down to the knee trending. With the start of the second world war, there was a strict rationing on the fabric which leads to the shortening of the dresses up to the knee length. Even the pants had a similar shape and the 940s fashion was mainly about wide shoulders tiny waists and full hips. In the 40s Utility, suits became a thing so women could, therefore, mix and match different components to wear.

Following the war, in the 1950s the fashion trends saw a resurgence of haute couture. And the trends varied greatly, many of the old school styles from the 1920s made a comeback while there were also some new trends introduced.

In the early 1960s, the trend was more like conservative and restrained and towards the classy style while the drastic change in trend made it completely opposite in the late 1960s with the bright swirling colours, psychedelic, tie-dyed shirts and long hair and beards were trending hot.
