What News from the World Travel Market?

Ever heard of “Nollywood”? Or wandered what you can do with BRICS? (no masonry, that’s for sure). And who of you already owns a Smart TV? To my absolute dismay, I read and hear in this year’s World Travel Market Global Trends Report that “smart TVs are on the verge of taking off” while all the while (for over […]
