I belong to that age group, which did not have access to the Internet during my growing up years. I remember going for vacations during Summers with my family.
Although they were well planned comfortable trips, but they can not be compared to the ease and comfort with which travels are planned these days.
Although most of the teaching and learning takes place in the classrooms, there is no doubt that travelling broadens the mind and enlivens the spirit.
- People often read books, magazines or newspapers or search on Internet, to know something about the outside World.
- But this can not be compared to seeing places with one's own eyes.
- Apart from historical and natural sights, travelling makes it possible to meet people from different cultures, learn about their customs and food habits, their modes of dressing up, their language and so many other details.
- This changes a person's outlook and can lead them to become more open minded and tolerant towards other human beings.
- Travelling removes prejudices and helps to build universal goodwill and fellow feeling, such that you become more a citizen of the World.
People who don't travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what's in front of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live.
5 Reasons Travel Has Become Simpler Than Before:
Anyone can travel, whether alone or in group, whether old or young. Because communication and technology has simplified our lives.
1. Increased connectivity through well maintained roads:
There was a time, when some of the most beautiful places of Nature were inaccessible through roads. But the advancement of infrastructure has resulted in better and well connected roads and highways and expressways.
That means we are able to visit the beautiful holiday spots surrounded by Nature with much ease.
Moreover accessibility to these places has been assured by well organized transport system, with all modern amenities.
2. Better information system and abundance of options:
Browsing on your Internet, you can find the cheapest and most affordable way to travel. Whether you choose to travel by road or railways or by Air.
You can simply make your choice and select the price, that is most affordable and convenient for you.
You can choose the dates, airlines, trains and even the routes from the so many private and government operated travel mediums.
I remember how painful it was earlier to stand in a line and wait for your turn on the ticket window. And sometimes face disappointments also, when the tickets were not of our choice.
Now all this can be done sitting in the comforts of your home.
3. GPS (Global positioning system):
This I consider a blessing, at least for people who are not very good in navigating.
Earlier, if we wanted to visit some place within our own country or some foreign country, we needed to do lot of research for a long time, may be for days to know which roads to take, where to stay etc.
I remember carrying maps and compass, whenever we were travelling. Even we had to ask the locals at various points to reach our destination.
With mapping applications and the feature of GPS, in our smartphones, how easy and convenient it is to reach our destination.
4. e-tickets: so easy to carry
Earlier I remember checking my hand bag many times, to assure that my travel ticket was in place and I have not lost it or dropped it.
The paperless ticket system has made it so easy and convenient.
You can save your electronic ticket in your mobile phone and even take a print out at the airport if it is required.
5. Travelling need not be expensive:
Most of the travel websites provide impressive discounts in travel seasons and even otherwise, if you are a frequent traveller.
You just have to explore the many possibilities. These travel websites also provide discounts on hotel bookings, cab bookings or sightseeing.
Just get in touch with a good, reputed and registered travel website and they will plan your entire trip with every detail as you opt for.
Travel, in the younger sort, is a part of education; in the elder, a part of experience. ~~~Francis Bacon
- When you travel within your country or abroad, you realize that people all over the World are the same, irrespective of culture, religion, language etc.
- They may be doing things differently, eating differently, dressing up differently, but anything which makes you happy will make them happy too and anything which makes you sad, will make them sad too.
- Travelling definitely enriches and broadens our outlook. And as travel in today's World has become easier, we must make the most of it.
