WHO travels around the world?

People who buy RTW tickets are far more diverse than most people would imagine. Travelling the world, I noted that the average age is around 35, but also young twenties. There is an increase in senior travelers over 55, and also in women traveling alone. People of all kinds of occupation, background and career.

Motivations can be very different
20’s: Travel as a rite of passage, personal growth, and empowerment – backpacking.
35’s : Travel before settling down to career, family and other involvements – with medium budget.
45’s: Travel as part of, or as a response to, a career break or life transition.
From 55: As a fulfillment of a lifelong aspiration – with ad hoc organized RTW.
For a wonderful honeymoon – high standards and generally with an arranged Tour.
