From travel inspo to travel info, these were the most popular stories of the year.
In 2022 we saw the world reopen to travel, as more and more Americans were able to get out and explore. And if they weren’t immediately boarding a plane, they were planning a trip as Google searches for scenic sights around the world increased.
Over the summer, the influx of travel caused a bit of chaos at airlines with canceled flights, long lines, and lost luggage pointing that international travel was making a big impact; and as the year comes to an end AAA predicted over 13 million Americans will leave home in what is expected to be the third busiest holiday season for travel since 2000.
When it comes to the best place to call home, our intrepid readers like to keep their options open. They loved our stories on the cheapest countries to retire abroad and the best states for living alone.
