You might assume that people regard traveling as an opportunity to connect with the peeps they came with. Well, adventure has taken a slightly different turn it seems. According to the 2018 travel report released by the Pinterest team, solo adventure re-pins have increased by a vast 593 percent. Traveling can still be so satisfying if you're journeying alone, so you just might want to add that to this year's bucket list!

People are not only basking in the ambiance of their vacation, but they're looking to sip it, too. According to Pinterest, wine trips are seriously trending. People are interested in hitting vineyards and wineries all over the world. It's always wine o'clock somewhere, and people are willing to travel to new places to fill their glasses. Wine not, am I right?

3How To Get There

Travel can seem like such a vague word when you consider all of the possible ways to reach your destination. From land to air, you'll see places from different perspectives — which is why you'll want to change it up every once in awhile.

The Pinterest team's data reveals that people are really interested in train travel. It's a convenient way to evade big cities and soak up a scenic view of the place you're in. But land isn't the only avenue travelers are interested in exploring. Another form of transportation has seen a slight spike in the Pinterest report as well. All types of boating are trending, so it's time to hit the high seas.

4What To Do
