This past year was a reinventing of sorts for the travel industry. In 2013, there was on average more travelers, and more interest in getting back on the road and seeing the world. To help accommodate the re-interest in travel after the recession, hotels, airlines, cruise companies and travel agencies are reinventing the way we travel - from booking options to room service menus.
In 2013 we saw hotel grocery delivery services, mobile check-ins and yes, free WiFi on planes. We witnessed some unfortunate travel disasters but also some travel successes, like the use of social media to book and plan trips, more leg room on flights, and the beginning stages of tourism space travel.
As the new year approaches, the travel industry is on par to make some significant improvements and enhancements. If you're looking to travel in 2014, here are 10 trends to watch for - from Pinterest planning to, finally, the first tourist in space.
