Common Types Of Travel And How Long Term Slow Travel Is

Travel is the habitual movement of individuals between different geographical locations, usually with passage through time. Travel can be one way, either round trip or one way, and is usually done by foot, by automobile, plane, train, bus or boat. The ancient world travelled by boat and the modern world has developed the motor vehicle. The nineteenth century saw the development of railroad and the beginning of what we know today as air travel. Travel by land and sea between continents and sometimes even from oceans to islands was undertaken by merchant vessels.

The earliest forms of travel were attempts to cross the land to reach new territory, such as the Mayans who travelled across the desert to avoid the glaciers on the shortest route between Asia and America. Other early forms of travel were more cultural, such as the pilgrims that followed the Buddha across Asia in the third century. It was during the period of exploration that Europeans learned about the Americas, and the need for more efficient ways of crossing the land to reach the east coast. When ships could be outfitted with sails and oars travel was made more practical for both sides.

There are many different types of travel, although, the most common type of travel is long term travel. This type of travel is best for those that do not like change in routine, those that do not like to leave their homes, those that are not very attached to their friends or are unwilling to put a lot of time and effort into making friends and developing new relationships. Long term slow travel is a travel plan that helps to alleviate some of these concerns. In a long term travel plan, the traveler has set aside time to travel from one destination to another, usually spread out over several months or a year. This is usually accomplished by selecting a different destination each month so that the traveler will have a little bit of continuity in his or her life, at least while the travel is going on.
