Most people remember their first major travel experiences, be they local or abroad. But the results of a recent study show just how much of a memory burner our introduction to travel can be. According to the survey, which was commissioned by Booking.com, nearly two in three (63 per cent) people remember their first travel experience better than their first date, while an even greater number (both 67 per cent) recall it more than making a new friend or their first day of school. The research also reveals just how much people look forward to their initial trip, with first-time travel deemed more exciting than the first day of school, a first date or a first job. Booking.com also found Australia to be the number one planned international destination for single travellers. Find out more.
