Is travel a luxury? then why did the Europeans travel so much? was it only for conquests? NO. It was more for an exchange of trade, a knowledge of cultures and the desire to know what is happening beyond the horizon.
Without travel we would never have come to know about Americas, nor the Australian countries, nor so many other islands, archipelegos, the best landscapes, the alps, the seas, nor would we have known about the various unique tribal clans like the Masaimara, the Aboroginies, the Maoris etc.
Travel has given the world to people ( if this makes sense) it has made us understand different Geographical aspects, Geo political aspects, the psychology of the different worlds, etc.
There was a time when the Telephone was termed as a luxury which was possessed by its proud owners which were very very few.
Later came the television which was initially also known as a highly luxurious possession.
As time went by, one could not think of stepping out of the house without the mobile phone, nor can one imagine a world without a television at home.
In the similar manner, travel has slowly become a necessity for one and all. Travel is food for the soul. Travel is widening of ones vision. Just as parents aspire to give the highest education to their children, they now have added travel to the same education.
In short, as countries grow in economies, so does travel.
Euro Trip 2021
Post Covid Scenarios –
Never in this milenium ha the urge and desires to travel been as strong as in the current Post Covid lockdown scenarios.
People who have been locked down in their houses with only one person to co ordinate wit the outside world for groceries and daily necessities have reached a saturation point for staying indoors.
People want to scream that they want to just go in any direction !
People now actually fantasize their last trip or the next one. Only when is the question.
In this situation with so much of post lockdown problems, TRAVEL is a huge panacea.
A Euro Trip for a fortnight is better than any thing else in the world.
it certainly is cheaper then hospitalization today. ( more and more people are paying consultants for post lockdown health issues)
Even if a Euro trip is not possible at present you can at least start the thinking process which will uplift the mood of the house and all family members will be happy just thinking about it and looking forward to it.
Ok so a Euro Trip does not fit in the budget. So there are lots and lots of other destinations which definitely can fit in your budget.
Try a week in Thailand. Or Dubai. OR TRY AZERBAIJAN . you will be amazed at how much value you get for y our budget. Stay there for about 5 to 6 days.
OR HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT IRAN ????? Yes sir IRAN. This is one country which is very high on culture and has a lot to be seen. Other than Tehran, there are other very beautiful and amazing cities like Shiraz, Kerman, Yazd, etc. The people are amazingly friendly. Mention India, and you could be invited to their homes just to talk about Sharukh khan or Amitabh Bacchhan.
So all in all there are huge options for you to travel if you set about it.
And finally , travel is a necessity of life. it is no longer just for the uber class, nor is it for anything else. travel is a necessity for travel in itself.
Also a great note for the fathers of future brides/grooms – The new trend is “where all have your children been to ” Which is slowly replacing – “how much you can give to them”!!
Like the Nike ad says it – JUST DO IT !!
