“The world is a book and those who don’t travel have only read a page”- Saint Augustine.
The primary need for man to travel was survival. Migrations of our ancient ancestors were brimming with tremendous hardships and life-threatening risks. The prospect of a consistent food supply, safe and habitable climatic conditions, shelter from hunters and predators, were powerful motivators to endure the risks and set out towards the promise of a better tomorrow.
Domestication of work animals and the invention of the wheel made these migrations faster and marginally safer. Over the centuries, the progress of technology and invention has restructured the face of travel by leaps and bounds. Discoveries of new cultures and civilizations, offered a myriad of unique and much desired local produce and goods of immense value. And this gave birth to travel for trade and commerce.
It has been documented that the ancient Greeks and Romans of wealth and affluence, frequently travelled to their summer homes in Pompeii and Baiae. Excessive and luxurious villas served them all aspects of comfort and leisure.
Today travel has become not just a necessity, but a way of life, and comparatively a far safer and faster endeavor. In 1992 Air France set a world record by circumnavigating the globe within earth’s atmosphere, in under thirty-three hours in the Concorde.
Tourism has now become a great economic engine in most countries. The United Nations (UN) reported that this sector employs one in every ten people on earth, and provides livelihood to hundreds of millions.
Indian tourism has been responsible for contributing to 12.75% of total employment while generating over 87.5 million jobs in the economy. In the pre-Covid19 era, the Indian tourism sector produced over 29.9 billion USD as foreign exchange earnings.
We have many reasons to travel, besides for professional and business demands. People travel to strengthen existing familial bonds, make new acquaintances, solidify religious and spiritual faith or most importantly rediscover themselves. Getting out of a mundane comfort zone, and plunging headfirst into a multitude of refreshing and first-time experiences, is a proven cure-all for the soul.
Simplify your trip
Safe, easy and fast is the byproduct of our technological evolution. Although certain trips can be created at the touch of a button, there are those that require a multitude of documentation and the fulfilment of regulations. A minute omission or an innocent oversight could pose a mood killing obstacle to well made plans.
To avoid any untoward violations, legal encumbrances and a generous serving of stress and anxiety, it is wise to avail of the professional services of Travel Agency firms that specialize in ensuring your travel plans are airtight.
