Travel: The Gift That We Make To Ourselves

In the introduction of this series a reference is made to the concept of Holistic Travel which embraces the practical aspects as well as attitudes and philosophies affecting us during travel. As this series develops, please remember that central to this view are these overlapping aspects. Although each aspect of the journey is important, the total experience is determined by everything simultaneously – practical and conceptual. It can turn a blind outing into an amazing expedition. Having traveled the world most of my life, military and civilian, I’ve garnered a wealth of experience. Meeting people and experiencing diverse cultures has the potential to enhance your life. It certainly has mine.

Vintage Airline Experience

23Sep

A Look at the Past 50 Years of Air Travel

Traveling via an airplane is getting more and more common with the increase in flight routes, and society’s desire to step beyond their backyard. Statistics from the International Air Transport Association, or IATA, show that around 3.1 billion people flew in 2013, surpassing the 3 billion mark for the first time ever.  Originally however, airplane travel was strictly an extravagant luxurious privilege. Airfares were set by the Civil Aeronautics Board and were quite pricey, though with that price came perks that are long gone in today’s air travel. At the same time, we’ve seen improvements to the industry so extreme that travelers today couldn’t fathom it any other way. It’s amazing to realize all of the changes that have occurred in the last 50 years of airline travel. Below are some of the major changes.

It's About The Journey

It's About The Journey - Part One 

 Life is a journey. During this journey, we travel. It can be a hard journey or it can be made a lot easier through a little forethought, planning and preparation. The word travel originated with the term travail. The journey was once extremely difficult. With advances in travel, technology and comfort afforded by ergonomics, it can now be an experience of pleasure and wonder. Often in our modern age, humanity forgets the beauty and enjoyment that travel can be due to the fast-paced mentality we’ve acquired. Whether we’re traveling for business or pleasure, we’re in a hurry. The journey needs to be pleasant. We need to pay attention. We need to stop and smell the flowers. If we’re wise or skilled and understand how to be in tune with the world around us, the journey can be absolutely memorable.
