In the past, traveling was nothing less than a dangerous adventure. People had no means of transport as they have now. They faced all sorts of danger such as bad weather, wild beasts, and robbers. Therefore, most people did not like to go away from their villages. Only those who were adventurous set out on a long journey.

When a man succeeded in training the four-foot animals like the horse and the camel, traveling became fairly comfortable. A trip across country was still a dangerous undertaking. In those days, it was also very difficult to transport goods from one place to another. Man carried his load on his head or back. Later, horses and other animals were used for this purpose. But man and animals could not carry very heavy loads from one place to another.

Now people living in any part of a country can travel to any other part in comfort. Every country sets up a railway network. A small sum of money is required to go from one corner of the country to another. If your business is more urgent, you can travel by airplane. A plane will need only a couple of days to fly around the whole world. Traveling by sea has also become swifter, more comfortable, and secure than before.
