About Traveling

Travel is the movement of humans between different distant geographic locations. Travel can be to many places, such as across wide oceans, between continents, within the same country or continent, within the same region, within different time zones, or even inside the same building. In the modern age travel is usually done by air, sea, land, or bus. Travel within the United States has become popular for business travel, leisure travel, or visiting friends and family.


The travel habits of today’s traveler have changed dramatically since the early days of travel. When a person was going from one place to another place, the person usually would carry along what they needed with them to use at each place, such as a piece of luggage or food. This type of travel is called commutation travel, as it was common for people to bring money and goods with them in order to use while travelling. However, in today’s travel climate, most travelers prefer to pack everything they will need while travelling and to leave the larger things, such as clothing, behind.

The modern concept of a journey has become slightly different than it used to be in days gone by. While still travel between places can take several days, some travelers prefer to complete a full round trip journey within their holiday, such as taking a cruise from a European destination to an American one. This allows the traveler to experience both the beauty of the place that they are going to, as well as the culture and history of the people that they are visiting.
