Travel involves a person moving from, through, or between one place to another via foot, train, bus, watercraft, automobile, or airplane either with or without luggage and possessions. Since ancient times, humans engage in traveling to escape problems, meet new people, find freedom, seek new places, pleasure, relaxation, or recreation. Traveling can be local, international, regional, and can be done solo or with friends and family. Today, travel is most often done by flight and travelers start their journeys at airports.
Traveling is important as it gets you out of your comfort zone, puts your life in new perspectives, and allows you to make friends from different countries. Traveling also allows you to explore different cultures, experience different places, learn new languages, taste new cuisines, and learn about history and architecture.
When traveling be sure to take the right travel bag for your trip and the clothes appropriate for the weather of your destination. Include an outfit for each day of your trip and pack shirts, jeans, something to sleep in, socks, underwear, and shoes. Also pack the necessary toiletry items such as deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, contact solution, necessary electronics, documents, money, and medications.
Travel insurance typically covers cancellations due to illness, injury or death, severe weather, and terrorist attack at a destination. Some travel insurances cover medical emergencies while abroad, travel delays or if a missed connecting flight. Travel insurance also generally covers lost or delayed luggage.
