From the Mayflower through the Millennium: What 600 years of travel looks like

If there’s one thing I know from my 30 years of travel experience, it’s that the industry is always changing. My job today is much different from when I started my company, particularly with the advent of the internet. But my three decades of globe-trotting is just a small piece of the picture representing the centuries of travel achievements, milestones, and innovations that have come before me. 
To illustrate the point, we’ve created an infographic depicting some of the major developments and trends in the travel industry over the past 600 years.
What do you think will be the next milestone in the travel industry?
