U.S. Consumers may be spending less at the malls, and it may be to save up for a vacation according to preliminary information on early trip planners. From Bermuda and the Bahamas to Orlando, Fla., and the Pacific Rim, travelers are making more time for vacations in 2014.

There are many stats showing a strong travel surge by U.S. consumers in the coming year(s). Globally, international tourism was up 5% in 2013, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization. UNWTO also predicts an increase of an additional 4 to 4.5% in 2014.

Additionally, an American Express Spending & Saving Tracker report released earlier this year confirmed an increasing number of Americans are planning more leisure travel in 2014 than they did in 2013..

Your Best Family Vacation
I've been very fortunate to be able to say that I've gone on some pretty epic vacations in my life. But the one trip that stands out more than the rest is definitely a two week Europe vacation with my parents, sister and brother. We spent the first 4 days in London before hopping on the Eurostar (the train that goes through the Chunnel) and spent over a week in France, primarily in Paris. From Buckingham Palace to the Natural History Museum to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Tower of London and the Champagne Caves, we saw it all.
Each day was more amazing than the next and some of the things that I learned and experienced will not only stay with me for the rest of my life, but also shaped the way that I travel and changed what I look for in traveling.
