Wikipedia's Definition of Travel

Travel is the transport of people on a trip/journey or the process or time involved in a person or object moving from one location to another. Reasons for travel include:

  • Tourism—travel for recreation. This may apply to the travel itself, or the travel may just be the necessary investment to arrive at a desired location.
  • Visiting friends and family
  • Trade
  • Commuting–going to various routine activities, such as work or meetings.
  • Migration—travel to begin life somewhere else; nomadic people do this
  • Pilgrimages—travel for religious reasons

The word originates from the Middle English word travailen ("to toil"), which comes from the French word travailler ("travail").

24/07/07 Turkey

Just got back in the early hours of Sunday morning from a weeks' hols in Turkey. We went to Kusadasi, a bit of a concrete jungle of a resort, I have to say, but the weather was good - actually a bit too hot to even sit in the sun for long. 37 - 38 degrees the whole week, with not a cloud in the sky, just to make all you people in the UK jealous. Yes, we escaped the rain and the floods, thank goodness.

For anyone going there,..... Read more on the MPOE blog
