We used to just vacation

  1. Bleisure: The perfect blend of business and leisure, where work trips are extended to include personal exploration and relaxation. It's for those who find joy in mixing boardroom discussions with beachside downtime.
  2. Buddymoon: Honeymoons shared with friends, extending the joy of your big day to a wider circle. Think of it as a celebration of love, friendship, and new beginnings, all rolled into one.
  3. Coolcation: Escaping the heat by vacationing in cooler climates. It's a trend driven by the desire to swap the scorching sun for snow-capped mountains or breezy evenings in less temperate zones.
  4. Destination Dupes: Seeking out less crowded, more affordable, but equally captivating alternatives to popular tourist destinations. It's about finding your own Venice or Paris without the throngs of tourists.
  5. Divorcation: Taking a trip to mark the start of a new chapter in life following a divorce. It's a celebration of freedom, rediscovery, and the courage to embark on new adventures solo.
  6. Dry Tripping: Embracing vacations without alcohol, focusing instead on the joys of exploration, culture, and connection without the buzz.
  7. Eduvacation: Combining travel with learning, whether it's a new skill, language, or deep dive into a cultural interest. It's about coming back from your trip not just rejuvenated, but enriched.
  8. Familymoon: Honeymoons that include the whole family, proving that romance and family fun can coexist beautifully.
  9. Friendcation: Vacationing with friends for shared experiences and memories, minus the traditional pre-wedding party vibes.
  10. Gamping: Garden camping, where backyards become the new frontier for those looking to escape the ordinary camping sites for more personal, unique experiences.
  11. Gig Tripping: Following your favorite bands or artists around the world, turning concert-going into a globetrotting adventure.
  12. Minimoon: Short, sweet honeymoons that offer a snapshot of bliss without the extensive time or financial commitment.
  13. Procrastipacking: The art of delaying packing until the last possible moment, turning pre-trip preparation into an adrenaline-fueled race against time.
  14. Set Jetting: Planning travels around the filming locations of beloved movies or TV shows, bringing on-screen magic to life.
  15. Solomoon: Going solo on a post-wedding trip, because sometimes the best company is your own.
  16. Sleepcation: Trips dedicated to rest and relaxation, where the main itinerary is catching up on sleep in luxurious or uniquely comforting settings.
  17. Van Life: Embracing the nomadic lifestyle in a van, turning every destination into home for as long as the journey lasts.
  18. Voluntourism: Merging travel with volunteering, making each trip meaningful by contributing to local communities or conservation efforts.
  19. Workcation: The evolution of the remote work phenomenon into the travel sphere, proving that work doesn't have to stop you from exploring new destinations.

According to The Washington Post, these trends reflect a broader shift towards more personalized, meaningful, and diverse travel experiences, catering to every taste, occasion, and lifestyle. Whether it's finding tranquility on a sleepcation, celebrating freedom on a divorcation, or exploring new horizons on a bleisure trip, the world of travel continues to evolve with our changing needs and desires.
