Travel is the movement of people between distant geographical locations. Travel can be done by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, bus, airplane, ship or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way or round trip. Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements.

Travel dates back to antiquity where wealthy Greeks and Romans would travel for leisure to their summer homes and villas in cities such as Pompeii and Baiae.While early travel tended to be slower, more dangerous, and more
dominated by trade and migration, cultural and technological advances
over many years have tended to mean that travel has become easier and
more accessible. Mankind has come a long way in transportation since Christopher Columbus
sailed to the new world from Spain in 1492, an expedition which took
over 10 weeks to arrive at the final destination; to the 21st century
where aircraft allow travel from Spain to the United States overnight.

Travel in the Middle Ages offered hardships and challenges, however, it was important to the economy and to society. The wholesale sector depended (for example) on merchants dealing with/through caravans or sea-voyagers, end-user retailing often demanded the services of many itinerant peddlers wandering from village to hamlet, gyrovagues (Wandering Monks) and wandering friars brought theology and pastoral support to neglected areas, travelling minstrels practiced the never-ending tour, and armies ranged far and wide in various crusades and in sundry other wars. Pilgrimages were common in both the European and Islamic world and involved streams of travellers both locally (Canterbury Tales-style) and internationally.

In the late 16th century it became fashionable for young European aristocrats
and wealthy upper class men to travel to significant European cities as
part of their education in the arts and literature. This was known as
the Grand Tour, it included cities such as London, Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome.
However, The French revolution brought with it the end of the Grand Tour.

Travel by water often provided more comfort and speed than land-travel, at least until the advent of a network of railways
in the 19th century. Travel for the purpose of tourism is reported to
have started around this time when people began to travel for fun as
travel was no longer a hard and challenging task. This was capitalised
on by people like Thomas Cook selling tourism packages where trains and hotels were booked together. Airships and airplanes
took over much of the role of long-distance surface travel in the 20th
century, notably after the second World War where there was a surplus of
both aircraft and pilots.




Geographic types


Travel may be local, regional, national (domestic) or international.
In some countries, non-local internal travel may require an internal passport, while international travel typically requires a passport and visa.
A trip may also be part of a round-trip, which is a particular type of
travel whereby a person moves from one location to another and returns.


Authorities emphasize the importance of taking precautions to ensure travel safety. When traveling abroad, the odds favor a safe and incident-free trip,
however, travelers can be subject to difficulties, crime and violence. Some safety considerations include being aware of one's surroundings, avoiding being the target of a crime, leaving copies of one's passport and itinerary information with trusted people, obtaining medical insurance valid in the country being visited and registering with one's national embassy when arriving in a foreign country. Many countries do not recognize drivers' licenses from other countries; however most countries accept international driving permits. Automobile insurance
policies issued in one's own country are often invalid in foreign
countries, and it is often a requirement to obtain temporary auto
insurance valid in the country being visited.
