Of the international travelers surveyed, 29 per cent think those who travel are more fun, 26 per cent think they're more creative, and 7 per cent think they're sexier.
They also seem to think international travelers smarter and have farther-reaching life experience: 66 per cent said they think that international travel can be as valuable as a college education.
The survey also asked why people travel, finding they were inspired to do so by the prospect of sightseeing (67 per cent), an interest in other cultures (52 per cent), a yearning to try authentic food (39 per cent), better weather (29 per cent), and a desire to spend time with family and friends (32 per cent).
Nineteen per cent said they were celebrating a milestone, like an engagement or promotion, while a whopping 17 per cent said they wanted to visit a place they saw on a TV show or in a movie.

It's little surprise, then, that 85 percent of people without a passport said they feel like they're missing out by not traveling abroad — something Hilton hopes to remedy with its Passport Project, which encourages more Americans to get passports.
