Trends / Top Trends

For the second consecutive year, Trazee Travel is honoring the winners of The Trazees, our annual awards celebration of the best and the brightest in the world of travel.

 

Travelers aged 18–35 are a varied group, boasting travel interests from study abroad to honeymoons. One thing they all have in common is a discerning eye and a keen interest in seeing, experiencing and learning about the world. Along the way, destinations, airlines, hotels and other travel providers stand out, providing unbelievable service, a memorable experience, a unique amenity or any number of stellar highlights.

 

To honor those storied travel companies, trazeetravel.com first introduced The Trazees in 2015. Nominations for this year’s The Trazees were collected from our intrepid group of contributors, as well as via an online ballot completed by readers. The nominations were compiled and a panel of Trazee and FX Express Publications, Inc. (our parent company) management selected the final winners.

 

Trazeetravel.com is proud to present The Trazees 2016. Congratulations to the following trendsetters!

Under $100: Poble Nou, Barcelona

Just north of Barcelona’s bustling city center, the capital of Catalonia transitions from Gothic cathedrals, tiny alleyways and hordes of bike tours into a more livable neighborhood known as Poble Nou. Close to the coast, Metro-accessible and rife with local hang-out spots, this area has become a favorite of residents who seek solace from the masses of tourists that crowd the center.

Mystery Novels Set in Summer

Use the summer to catch up on reading that pile of books collecting dust in the corner of your bedroom. Reading is a great pastime for people to enjoy while on vacation. For example, lying out on the beach with a good book will help the hours slip by while the reader is transported to a written world. Everyone has their favorite author or genre, but mystery novels are especially fun to read while relaxing on vacation. A good mystery will get someone’s pulse racing and mind thinking as they try and solve the mystery before the book ends. These mysteries all take place during the summer and are great to enjoy while tanning.
