life through my lens

my passion is travel; my enjoyment photography

Why do people travel?


Travel; what is it about that word that conjures up a whole vista of possibilities?

Could you imagine what your life would be like without travel? Is it possible to not travel? Whatever you do and whatever your reason, travelling is a part of most people’s lives.

For centuries now people have been travelling, not just locally, but right around the world. The reasons over the centuries have been different and yet remain the same, just in a different context. Our forefathers travelled. Ancient civilizations travelled. New world’s were discovered, different civilizations and different cultures. Their reasons for travel were vastly different and yet remain the same; to explore and conquer. We all travel in one way or another.
