Why really? Travel is in the blood of man. I'm alive, I'm going to travel. I'll go on a private vacation or very public.
Eye to see hand to touch
You have seen the seven wonders of the world in photos and videos many times. No one can blame you for the boredom that comes over time. You may not be exactly wanting to go to Cripple Creek with The Band for a YouTube company a few thousand times, but aren't you going to die for their live show? It's a Journey: Live Show! This is as private a vacation as you can get. Standing in front of the Pyramid of Cheops and feeling the excitement is not the same as the long videos from the BBC or something.
The atmosphere in your living room can never be compared to the presence of the Taj Mahal or the Great Wall of China, which extends beyond the horizon. Human-made or nature-designed to see firsthand is what travel is all about. Remember that the taste of authentic local food is whether you eat it at a street vendor where the sky is the roof or at a fantastic restaurant where the price goes through the roof. Private or in a group, you can enjoy your trip the way you choose to eat the way you prefer.
Nostalgia as a catalyst
The longing for days gone by is more than a feeling. More like falling in love. You can fall in love as many times as you see a pretty girl. Going back in time to remind yourself of events and places is a sweet way to spend your time. What if you can actually go back to the place, though not to the real time period? Time machines may not be there to take the trip, but for now you can catch a bus or something to get back to the place you love.
Even a branch of grass that was green a year ago when you first saw it, but turned orange, can help. Each place has its place in one heart. The backyard of the house where you grew up but no longer live, the hill where you and your friends stole smoke all have a million dollar memory attached. In fact, you're in luck that you don't have to spend that much. Travel expenses are all you need for a very private vacation of this kind.
Some of the famous travelers around the world have left their experiences in the books they have written. Reading their accounts ignites the passion even for the careless traveler to seriously start thinking about packing his bag and being on the road. Recently, the praise of Harvard professor George Santayana for the journey has had to inspire thousands to take the journey.
The sea, the land
The vastness of the sea, for countless men living on earth, is an attraction like no other. Walking on the deck of the promenade with a cool breeze, caressing your whole anatomy with the evening sun shining on the blue sea and turning it into golden, is what the sky is. Every man, woman and child is transformed into a true blue sailor as they sail. Why not? Aren't sailors some of the jolly good people?
Get rid of everything
No one but the Beatles can have an eight-day week, but the work you do 5 days a week makes you feel like you've had an eight-day week. You want to take the unused route to places where no man has ever gone before. You don't need to look at travel statistics to find out that traveling around the world is increasing significantly, whether it is a private vacation or a vacation undertaken with every relative and friend.
So why are we traveling?
