News flash: the younger generation loves to travel. Sure, we might spend our money on avocado toast instead of mortgages, but one thing we will splurge on a little is a chance to see the world.

The ultimate travel squad that young Canadians would love to hop on a plane with included Drake, Ellen Degeneres, Beyonce, the devastatingly handsome Chrises (Hemsworth, Evans, Pine), Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse for those moody romantic nights, and a Titanic-aged Leo Dicaprio.

Who topped the list? None other than the late-great food and travel expert, Anthony Bourdain.
