November 2021 Journal

Welcome to the November 2021 issue of Travel Research Monthly!

The holiday season is here!  One of my takeaways from my years in the travel industry is that travel plans are often determined at holiday gatherings with family and friends.  I hope this month’s articles will inspire you and your clients as you begin discussing vacation plans.

I have highlighted a few favorite articles below that I hope you will enjoy!


Stout-hearted? Try driving to this pub.
The Sani Pass in South Africa climbs 4370 feet to a height of 9436 feet. Those numbers alone clue you in to the fact that you need a sturdy vehicle. Traveling steep roads with tight switchbacks and vertical drops outside your car window, you may want to hire a driver. The reward at the top is a pub with incredible views.


An ardent hat maker shares his passion for lids.
A handmade hat seems like something you would have to step back in time to find. Fortunately, there is a magical shop in New York City where the owner creates one of a kind hats for his clients and offers tours in order to share his passion.


Night swimming with a bioluminescent twist.
While there are several water features in Puerto Rico that are bioluminescent at night, there is only one where you can actually climb into the water and create your own light show.


Imagine a grocery bill of one million dollars a week.
I find it absolutely fascinating that the world’s largest cruise ship can prepare and serve over 30,000 meals a day. This video explores what it takes to accomplish this amazing feat.
