⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Susan Blume, a travel agent in Garden City, N.Y., is already booking river cruises along the Danube for 2026. International travel has exploded in the past few years, she said, and this year is on track to top them all.⁠ ⁠ “Everybody was just so confined during the pandemic that they never want to have that experience again,” she said.⁠ ⁠ But the biggest surprise: the rush of travelers in their mid-20s, far younger than Blume’s usual clientele.⁠ ⁠ “Gen Z has a very different attitude — they’re not going broke on Gucci or takeout,” she said. “Instead they’re squirreling away for travel. And they’re already planning next year’s big trip: all of Italy, or island-hopping in Greece, or four stops in France.”⁠ ⁠
