Here’s how you can travel in style like Goldfish and Blink

DJs Goldfish and Blink met a decade ago but only started collaborating in recent years. Within the Malaysian electronic music culture, they have established a unique style through their music backgrounds and versatility in production styles.

The duo recently made a video together with Tumi featuring some exciting moments as they prepare to take on music fest Tomorrowland in Belgium for the first time on July 29.

With support from the likes of Hardwell, Tiesto, David Guetta, Nicky Romero, W & W, Benny Benassi and more, it’s just one more step on the journey for them, whose sets are becoming known for having energy and inventiveness.

Here, we ask them a few questions about being a part of this huge festival and travelling with Tumi.

How does it feel to be invited to perform at one of the world’s largest and most notable music festivals, Tomorrowland in Belgium?

It feels great and it still feels unreal to be honest. The show is next week so we are super excited and we’ve been preparing for weeks now. It’s almost there. It feels super special because we’re the first Malaysians to be billed on the festival line-up.

What can the audience expect?

The audience can expect an energetic Goldfish and Blink set. That’s what we represent really energy. We are crafting mostly new material, be it songs or mash-ups.

What inspired you to produce this film?

We have always had the idea but it only really came together at the right time last year, as we were about to do some big festivals around the region. We were on the DWP and ZoukOut mainstage and we thought it would have been great to get some great footage with our Tumi bags and us.

What was it that first attracted you to the brand?

It’s a must-have for all travelling DJs, especially the backpack. It is durable, protects the laptop well and carries a lot of things. It was not long before Tumi contacted us when they noticed we were using the products.

You’re a true global citizen you’re always on the road. How does having good bags, like the ones you’re using now, help make travelling easier?

The design and construction of the bags are always light and enable our things to be kept in place. It makes packing easy with various compartments. When you’re on the road as much as we are, that’s half the battle won.

Aside from your DJ and production equipment, what three travel essentials can we expect to find in your backpack or luggage?

Notepad, iPad, and some mints.

Do you have any packing tips?

Pre-plan your outfits days before the trip, list it down and then go for it.

Millennials lucky when it comes to international travel

The growth of low-cost flights, online reservations and multiple tourism options have all helped make international travel more widely accessible. In fact, millennials (age 18 to 29) generally took their first trip overseas by age nine, whereas baby boomers (age 50+) made their first international escapade at age 19, on average, according to a study from online travel agent eDreams, conducted in several countries.

The report reveals that 54% of millennials had already travelled overseas by age five, whereas only 19% of baby boomers can say the same. Germans head abroad at the youngest age, having already experienced international travel at age nine on average. Swedes are the next youngest to venture overseas, with a first international holiday at age 11, on average, followed by the French at age 12.

At the other end of the scale, Americans take a first overseas break at age 17, on average.

Across all nationalities, a millennial traveller has already visited an average six countries by age 18.

The increase in low-cost offers, the falling cost of travel and the arrival of online travel agents are some of the factors that have contributed to increasing the thirst for international travel. According to the same study, holidays at home have dropped by 4% and 51% of those polled said that they travel more than they did 10 years ago.

Almost half of those polled (48%) attributed this to the fact that travel has become more accessible. Plus, 70% book their getaways via an online travel agent, with this figure rising to 83% for Swedes.

As a result, travel has practically become a necessity. Travellers spend on average 16% of their annual income on getaways. The Italians devote even more of their income to travel, setting aside 20% of their earnings.

The Travel Through The Generations report has been created by eDreams in conjunction with data from market research company One Poll, which conducted a consumer survey globally. The statistics within the report are a collective of 13,000 adult respondents, half are parents, across eight countries 2,000 people each from Britain, US, Spain, France and Germany, and 1,000 people each from Sweden, Portugal and Italy.
