What Is Travel? Non-Routine Means of Travel
Travel is the movement of individuals between various geographical areas. It could be long distance travel between places in two countries or could be short-distance travel between places of one country and those of another. Travel can be a single way, round trip or multiple ways, with or without baggage, and would usually be done with or without the assistance of another person.
The word “traveling” as used in the context of the modern age is usually assumed to be non-routine means of travelling. But the truth is that travel has become a routine means of travelling for many people and there is an increasing tendency for people to take their families and friends along for the ride. But then again, most modern day travel does not involve air travel, nor does it involve sea or road travel. Let us look at how travelling could be defined in terms of non-routine means of travel.
When people travel to other countries to experience new cultures, they tend to do so in their own ways, through their own personalised methods of cultural exploration and discovery. Some people travel within their own countries to experience different aspects of the life of the new culture they are trying to understand. And there are also some who go out of country to study new cultures, new technology, literature and art or to immerse themselves completely in new cultural experiences.
