Travel is the activity of making
journey to another geographical location other than where we live. Travel
is one of the important activities of our life. We are compelled to travel often because of
family functions, meeting friends, and attend official duties. We travel
for pleasure on excursions and for visiting touristic places.
Travel is an important diversion for us from daily mundane
routine. Travel teaches us many things that we cannot learn from residing
at a place. Travel enriches our knowledge and increases our wisdom. Travel costs some amount.
One needs to take precautions and needs to make plans for the journey.
However, it is worth making all the arrangements and traveling.
Travel far enough, you
meet yourself.” ― David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
“Travel brings power and
love back into your life.” ― Rumi
“I travel not to go
anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.”
― Robert Louis Stevenson
Tourism is travelling
to various popular touristic and heritage locations in the state, country or
world. Tourism helps us to learn the good
history and rich cultural heritage that our ancestors have given us. Tourism helps us to learn our own land.
We can really enjoy tourism as various
facilities are provided at each location. The hotels, conveyance, restaurants
and public transport etc. All one has to
do is to book well in advance for all the facilities. It costs a lot, but tourism allows one to see
what we study in our lessons. We learn a
lot of practical issues, see different cultures, interacting with people of
multiple back grounds and manners.
Most of the
employees are given a chance to take a tour along with their family by a scheme
called Leave travel Allowance. One can
get all the information on the touristic spots through internet, or by contact
government tourism department, or travel agencies.
In India people make a lot of tours to various pilgrimage centers and big towns and cities. The tourism to isolated heritage centers is perhaps not the first choice.
