Travelocity.ca unveils Canadians' favourite celebrity travel moments of 2013
TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2013
New survey names Bieber's British brawl the most memorable celebrity
travel moment of the year
TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Travelocity.ca today released the results of a new national survey which showcased the
top 12 celebrity travel moments of 2013. Interestingly, Canadians
appear to be evenly split on pop prince Justin Bieber, whose much
publicized brawl in Britain earlier this year, tied for both the most
and least memorable moment of 2013.
"Bieber's antics while travelling the world have been highly publicized
and this was really the moment that started it all." says Travelocity.ca resident travel expert, Brian Simpson. "So, it's no surprise it's the
moment that resonates most prominently with Canadians."
But it seems Canadians don't want to follow in Bieber's footsteps, as
his London trip was the moment Canadians were least likely to recreate.
And while Canadian women chose Bieber's London trip to be the most
memorable, Canadian men chose Charlie Sheen's highly publicized trip to
Scotland in search of the loch ness monster as their most memorable
moment of the year. They also chose Leonardo DiCaprio's yacht trip to
Ibiza, Spain as the moment they would most want to recreate for their
own, while Canadian women most wished they could recreate Avril Lavigne
and Chad Kroeger's trip to Portofino, Italy where they exchanged vows.
"It seems Canadian men were more inclined to recreate an adventure trip
with buddies, while women were more likely to want a romantic European
experience with a partner." said Simpson.
Overall, Canadians were quite fond of their own home grown talent, with
Bieber, and Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger's travel moments ranking
higher than Hollywood heavyweights like Jay-Z and Beyonce's highly
publicized trip to Cuba, the number four most memorable moment of the
year and Rihanna's highly shared trip to Barbados following her
Diamonds world tour, the number five moment of the year. And the
twerking wasn't working for Canadians, with Miley Cyrus' Bahamian break
from then fiancé Liam, coming in as the eighth most memorable travel
moment for Canadians.
Canadians were also fond of seeing stars in more exotic locations like,
Portofino, Italy; Ibiza, Spain; Sydney, Australia and the glens and
lochs of Scotland, with these locales coming in as the top four most
desired moments of the year Canadians want to recreate.
