Travel to live – live to travel?

The art of getting from one place to another is as every bit as old as humanity. Throughout human history – from prehistoric times, when our ancestors set out on foot in search of a warmer climate and food, to today’s globalised world with all its constant innovations in terms of transport – travel, be it for business or pleasure, has often been an essential part of our everyday lives. Of course, we now know well what it feels like not to be allowed to travel.

They may also account for the increasing popularity of travelling among younger generations.


Going on a journey, testing yourself in a different, unfamiliar setting has its ups and downs, but every single step on the road is vital in teaching valuable life lessons that one cannot learn by simply sitting at home in front of a book or television.
