CHARLEY BOORMAN LAUNCHES EXPEDIA.CO.UK’S SEARCH FOR THE MODERN EXPLORER TO RETRACING VASCO DA GAMA’S FAMOUS SPICE ROUTE DISCOVERY WITH TODAY’S TECHNOLOGY

Press Release   •   Apr 30, 2014 00:00 BST

Quote:

“The way we travel in modern times has changed, but our reasons to travel haven’t. The spirit of discovery lives on. We no longer need to trawl through maps, plotting courses to reach our destination (although that can be fun!). Technology offers us a multitude of opportunities to get under the skin of a destination: connecting with locals via social media, virtually visiting the destination via satellite maps – you can become an explorer in any destination at the touch of a button. The Modern Explorer could be 18 or 80, an experienced globetrotter or someone who has never ventured outside of Europe, but they all have something fantastic in common – a thirst to discover and to return with stories gained from experiences that you only get from travelling.”
