Millennial Traveler, a name or a profession that refers to Y Generation (born in 1980-2000) who likes to take a journey/trip; moving from one place to place in a certain range of time in order to find happiness and inner peace. Many said that millennials are very influental on social media especially in travel industry, really? Many of them has become a celebrity on Instagram (Celebgram) as I mentioned the “How To Be” right here. Although, there are some fun facts about millennial travelers according to my opinion that you need to know. Check it out!
I. LESS SELFIE, MORE CANDID
Millennial travelers have changed the way people taking photos. The older generations might take many selfies with their spouse or family while they are traveling, but different with the millennials, they are likely to have “look-alike” candid photos. I don’t know their intentions to do this, but all I know traveling makes your face looks dull, is this the reason, guys?
II. GET LOST IS A MUST, BUT NOT GETTING LOST IN THE FOREST
Not to compare with other generations, millennials see traveling as their passion. Getting lost when they travel is one of the moment they seek out. Lost here means they are going to unexpected destination, explore something new, and meet more people to interact, not to be lost in a forest or a mountain and suddenly found dead, got it? LoL
III. ONLINE SHARING IS CARING
In the past few years we often heard a phrase “Sharing is Caring”, it’s right ’cause our religion taught us so, but for millennial travelers currently that phrase becomes “Online Sharing is Caring”. What do they share online? Photos! Yes, photos and stories are something that need to be shared and all people in the world should know what they are doing while traveling! Caring they say? Eeh?
IV. BEING LIKED IS MAIN OBJECTIVE
Millennial travelers mostly only share photos that they think is the best and enough “instagrammable”, even more they can do everything to make their photos viral, including doing dangerous and inappropriate poses to get attention and many likes. Sounds pathetic? Yes.
V. RELATIONSHIP STATUS: SINGLE!
We cannot more agree on this but this is fact, most of millennial travelers are still single! Look around you and look at yourself, guys.. Are you one of the millennial traveler? Are you still single? LoL. It shows us that you are too busy for traveling and then you forget that your heart is empty for so long~ Go get life now, find a lover!
