What Is Travel?
Travel is the motion of humans between different distant geographical points. Travel can be done by bicycle, foot, car, plane, train, bus, boat, bicycle or any other mode, with or without baggage, and is one way to get to a destination or another. In today’s world it is not so easy to get from point A to point B. Public transportation like trains and buses are not convenient enough, nor does an airplane allow for privacy or comfort. The advent of air travel changed all that. Now even the elderly and disabled have the right to travel by air.
Traveling by air is similar to traveling by land or water. The only difference is that, unlike traveling by land or sea, a person has to go through certain security screening procedures. The passport that a traveler applies for is called the travel document or the travel visa. The travel documents need to be applied for before leaving for the travel abroad. There are many other types of travel documents such as international health insurance or local travel insurance that covers medical expenses when travelling outside the country, but are valid only within the country they were purchased.
There are two kinds of travel, the direct travel which is touring or moving around the countries and tours, and the indirect travel which is going to another place temporarily for business purposes, visiting relatives, or for pleasure. Tourists who go to one place temporarily can use either the direct or indirect type of travel. While a tourist is travelling he should carry his passport, he is supposed to have separate papers for the country he plans to visit and he must have a return ticket if he plans to travel back to his home country. It is always wise to have at least one passport for both countries.
Travel means moving from one place to another. A journey can either be long or short. Long journeys require more planning and more supervision and short journeys can be made with less effort. Long journeys require more packing as you have to ensure your safety while also ensuring that no matter where you journey to, you will find accommodation facilities and public services.
Long journeys require much packing since you will be staying at various places and also have to consider your belongings while traveling. Some of the items that have to be packed while traveling long journey are clothes, some of the things can even be returned later on, but it is important that you pack them in a proper manner so that you do not get them lost along the way. A lot of packing has to be done before you start your journey. The most important part of a long journey is that you have to ensure that you have booked or are getting your luggage packed and ready to go by a specific time. For example, the airline companies will not let you travel until the stipulated day or week and will not allow you to check out of the hotel till the agreed upon time.
Traveling is not only fun it also means you get to meet other people from different parts of the world and you can socialize with them. One of the most important parts of a journey is having a good companion along with you, so when we talk about travel it means bonding with someone else who is different from the other. In short, travelling is not all about jumping from one country to another, it is about meeting new people and having adventures as well!
