All About Travel
Travel is the traveling of individuals between different, usually distant geographical locations. Travel can be to any extent, one-way or round trip, undertaken by bicycle, foot, car, train, plane, boat or other means and is one manner or another used by man to move from place to place. The commercial traveler moves from one point in a country to another on business; the farmer or trader travels from one place to another for the purpose of gathering or re-allocating supplies; while the tourist, going for a vacation, takes from one place to another either for the purpose of visiting different places, like a sightseeing tour, an archaeological dig, a festival or an educational outing. All these methods of travel are accompanied by movement, and sometimes by fatigue or tiredness.
A kind of travel that has become quite common nowadays among the youth is called travel writing. Young writers are not very different from the old French travelers described above; they are young travelers who like to write about their travel experiences. Travel writers love to tell about their adventures, their experiences, their wanderings around the globe, their insights about certain areas, interesting facts they picked up along the way, etc. Some travel writers write as if they are narrating a story about their trip, and their travel journal is not just a travel journal but a story written while on their trip.
Travel agents are also included in this category of travelers. Travel agents are people who travel the world to conduct business and also to make personal trips. Travel agents may belong to the same profession as the modern traveler, but the basic difference is that a travel agent would rather roam all over the world to find a place to eat than sitting in a small and cozy hotel room and eat dry chips with his/her legs touching the table. Travel agents are usually employed by large tour or travel agencies as well as private individuals.
