How to Understand Travel
Travel is the transport of individuals between different remote geographical locations over a period of time. Travel can generally be done with or without physical luggage, by foot, vehicle, bike, car, plane, train, boat or other mode of transportation, and is usually one way or roundtrip. There are various modes of travel. Air travel is one method for travel by air, where one commences with traveling from point A to point B; either by taking a flight or by rail.
On the other hand, when we speak of land travel, then it is a means of travel by land. A typical example would be from one city to another; such as from London to Paris, England to Rome, Italy, etc. In this definition, “land” refers to continents, oceans, or rivers, while” travels” implies that the travel takes place over great distances. One can travel from one country to another, within the same continent or to other countries in the same region. “Atlantic” travel within Europe means traveling from either side of the Atlantic Ocean. ” Northwest” travel within North America, on the contrary, refers to travel easterly from points west of the continental United States to points east.
The definition of “travel” has changed throughout the years; some people define travel literally, while others simply use it as a synonym for “discovery”. One can never really know where “travel” originated because travel itself started in the Early Ages when traders were roaming the globe, seeking to make transactions with new and distant geographic locations. They could only do so through sea travel and this process greatly facilitated communication. When geographical boundaries began to disappear, this gave birth to what we call “commerce” – which was basically the exchange of goods – for example, hunting and fishing expeditions, between countries. Travel became, indeed, very important to early mankind.
