Travel may be local, regional, national (domestic) or international. In some countries, non-local internal travel may require an internal passport, while international travel typically requires a passport and visa. A trip may also be part of a round trip, which is a particular type of travel whereby a person moves from their usual residence to one or several locations and returns.

It's important to take precautions to ensure travel safety.[7] When traveling abroad, the odds favor a safe and incident-free trip, however, travelers can be subject to difficulties, crime and violence.[8] Some safety considerations include being aware of one's surroundings,[7] avoiding being the target of a crime,[7] leaving copies of one's passport and itinerary information with trusted people,[7] obtaining medical insurance valid in the country being visited[7] and registering with one's national embassy when arriving in a foreign country.[7] Many countries do not recognize drivers' licenses from…...

Vacation

...The shadow of the palm trees reflecting on the soft sand at the beach side, while the waves of the beach are hitting the ground, is what makes this place so special. Just to imagine sitting at the beach while the palm trees are creating a shadow on my skin, and at the same time their branches are waving back and forth to provide a clear and clean breeze, is so relaxing. Therefore, I chose this State for my favorite vacation place. This alone that the nickname of the State is Sunshine State (en.wikipedia.org) shows a lot because that is what it is all about, a place to recognize the sun and its amazing features warming up the world to the joy of its people, making the climate so pleasant and relaxing. In fact, throughout the winter season, the climate is never below 60 degree and frost has never been reported there (www.statesymbolsusa.org). Furthermore, whenever I was there the sun always shone brightly comforting me with his strong sun rays, making it a place to escape from the cold New York during the freezing winter days. While strolling down the long and endless boardwalk, I got so inspired by its breathtaking sceneries. Starting from the beautiful beach view continuing to the white sand covered shore on one side, and on the other side many sky-high luxurious hotels each one with its amazing spa areas including incredible outdoor saunas and heated pools. Even after sunset the area does not lose its nice view since the colorful eye-catching lights take over by......

...Tarsha Strong English 1101/Mrs.Staton Reflective Essay 29 June 2013 A Memorable Bahamas Vacation Its 10:15 am, we are getting ready to board the ship. I am relieved to be standing after sitting in an RV for 10 hours while riding from Georgia to Florida. My aunts, cousins, and my mom are smiling and hugging each other because they are happy to see my family that we have not seen in awhile. We wave goodbye to my uncles as they drive off. As I walk toward the ship I become anxious and excited. I’m holding my luggage and smiling at the attendant. I look at my mom and say, “I can’t believe we are headed to the Bahamas.” We are standing in a long line waiting to check in our entire luggage. The security officers are making sure we don’t have things that are not allowed. Now that we are finished, my mom and I head to our room. We take the elevator to the third floor where our room is located. I open the door to our room and I see two twin beds with cute little animals on them made with towels. My mom has an alligator and I have an elephant. I take a picture and smile because I think this is so cool. Now its time for me to shower, so I sit my luggage on the bed, take out a nice sun dress, and head for the shower. First we head to the top floor of the ship. Everyone must do a safety drill. The captain comes on over a loud speaker and welcomes everyone to the cruise. Then he begins the speech of all the safety rules. The staff members are demonstrating how to use the......

Vacation

...Sample Essay – My Summer Vacation I had a fantastic summer vacation! My family and I spent a lot of time at the beach. We also went on a trip to Disney World. We ended our summer by traveling to southern California for a soccer tournament. It was nice to be able to spend so much time with my family this summer. In the beginning of the summer, I went to the beach with my kids at least once a week. We were so lucky because every time we were at the beach I saw the dolphins splashing playfully in the surf. We would usually arrive around 12:00, when the sand was as hot as coals in a barbecue. Sometimes we would stay until 7:00 in the evening. At the end of the day I loved to watch the flaming red ball creep slowly down into the shimmering ocean. Going to the beach is my favorite thing to do in the summer. Towards the middle of my summer vacation, my whole family and I flew to Florida to visit Disney World. We had never been before, and I could not believe how big and beautiful the Disney property was. It was like being in the center of a rainbow. Everywhere you looked, there was loads of color. The weather was hot and humid. We were soaked with sweat the entire time, but we were able to refresh ourselves in the beach-like pool. We stayed at a hotel called The Beach Club, and the pool there actually had sand at the bottom of it. It was fun to travel all the way to Florida. As my vacation was coming to an end, we made a trip to Huntington Beach for my......

Virtual Vacation

...A vacation to New Zealand, even with similarities to the United States, requires a certain amount of preparation; it is not a three-hour trip to Disney, it is a 17-hour time difference that requires knowledge of: local customs, location, weather, current issues, and future expectations. New Zealand: Having never been to New Zealand, I find it very interesting that it was the last major landmass that humans discovered (Wilson). Though the time line is heavily debated, most scientists approximate that man settled some time 800 years ago. In comparison to North America, which is somewhere around 25,000 years, New Zealand is still young (Warner pg. 47). Important Considerations Location, Climate, and Topography: • Southeast of Australia, New Zealand is similar in size to Colorado; its southern location from the Equator means opposite seasons from Europe and North America. • New Zealand’s climate is classified as Cbf (Fig. 2). • Most of the North Island lies on the Australia Plate, where as the South Island is on the Pacific Plate (Fig. 1). This, combined with active volcanoes, creates a hotbed for seismic and volcanic activity (CIA). • One quarter of the earthquakes have been below a 2.0 magnitude, but within the last year alone, New Zealand has seen 17,246 earthquakes with a majority ranging from 0-5 magnitudes (Geonet). (Fig. 2) Link: http://koeppen-geiger.vu-wien.ac.at/. Topography • New Zealand formed after the collision of the Australian......

Vacations

...Vacations Doris A. Davis Vacations Cruises appeal to many travelers because they are considered all-inclusive vacations. Pay one price and receive accommodations, meals, entertainment, and transportation between island and port destinations. But once onboard, many cruisers find themselves shelling out hundreds of additional dollars for shore excursions, alcoholic beverages, and gratuities. What happened to their supposedly all-inclusive vacation? Many land-based resorts also refer to themselves as all-inclusive, yet [the properties offer a different set of included amenities. As I look at the picture my mind can imagine exactly what my experience would be. So what does it really mean to be all-inclusive? I have compared the pictures of all-inclusive resort and cruises at sea I believe all-inclusive land resort vacations are the best. All-inclusive cruises and resorts tend to include different amenities in the base price. Book a mainstream cruise, and you'll receive accommodations, all meals and snacks, certain beverages at meal times, use of the ship's facilities (such as the pool, kids club, and fitness center), onboard activities and entertainment, and transportation between ports-of-call. You will have to pay extra for soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, tips for a waiter, spa treatments, shore excursions, airfare, and airport transfers. Luxury liners may include tips for the waiter and alcohol in their base price. On the other hand, book an all-inclusive resort......

Traveling

...Gerhard Hernandez Writing Composition 1013 Alyson Martin 01/27/2014 Traveling can be a broadening experience. Nowadays, people are traveling for many reasons Vacations, business, entertainment and many other things. I think that the most important part of traveling is how it can broaden and open your mind. The most frequent arguments for traveling broadening the mind are that you get to interact with different cultures and experience a lot of new things. Obviously how much it broadens your mind depends on how you travel rather than when or how often you do it. In my case, traveling has really made an impression on my life, I have learned so many things by doing it that I would do it again without thinking about it. The most amazing trip I have ever had was the first time I visited the United States of America. That was such an amazing experience, I learned as much as I could. First of all, I thought I already knew how to speak English until I had my first real conversation with an American, by the time we finished talking, I was so disappointed that I started talking to every man I could talk to and had my parents make me order the food in restaurants and fast food places, that was very funny and difficult at first but it became easier throughout the days. Also, I never thought there was going to be such a big difference between cultures, people were so different, I really thought that I was in another world and got pretty impressed with the clean......

Vacation

...A Great Vacation Have you ever been on a cruiz or to another state with amazing view? Whether you've given it any thought or not, there are many qualities that makes a vacation a great one. A vacation can be divided into three groups such as: great scenery, good food, and great weather. For most people, the hardest part about a vacation is figuring out where to go. Majority of the process of finding the spot is the scenery. There are many islands that have amazing views, and also huge cities that have city views; it's entirely up to you and your preferences as to where to go. Niagra falls, for example, is an amazing place to visit. The scenery is breathttaking, everyone consider the visit at least once in their life time. The bahamas as well, is also a great place to visit when it comes to scenery. The water is a stunning deep blue that no other view can compare to. The weather is also mostly always warm and the sun is always shining. Nothing tops the great vacation list more than what you eat. Great food is a big part of a grerat vacation because you experience many different cultures that you may only have once in a life time to do. There are many different foods that we have around the world that aren't made where we live, no one can come close to making some things either. You may come across that one specific food you like that no other place has, you would want to bring it back with you but it won't last forever. You also wouldn't want to have bad food on your......

Dream Vacation

...A typical dream vacation usually consists of traveling to a foreign country such as Italy or to a more tropical setting such as Bora Bora. Although I would love to travel to these places I have a location completely different in mind. Not a significant amount prefer traveling to what I consider as my dream vacation location. To be completely honest I am not very educated when it comes to this place and I have no idea what to expect if I were to ever travel there. Despite this fact I am confident that my dream location is rich in culture and art, two aspects in life that I am strongly passionate about. Culture is imbedded in every person that walks this Earth and if I have the capacity to learn about the variety of cultures, I shall. I find it amazing how although we inhabit the same Earth each culture adopts different beliefs and lifestyles. Art resides in each culture and I enjoy witnessing the diversity of details in each piece and the infinite amount of culture flowing out of each one. My dream vacation would consist of educating myself about the culture and art of the one place where I am certain it will satisfy my curiosity: India. For about two years I have been growing more and more interested in learning about India. My goal in the future is to travel there and spend about a month journeying through out India learning about the different landmarks and the people who reside there. I have always wanted to experience walking the paths of India dressed in a saree with a...

Time Traveling

...Time Traveling If I were to travel through time I would travel back in time. I would travel back in time to the time period of 1920s-1980s in the United States of America. Another reason why I would travel back in time would be in the time period of 1776-1820s in the United States of America. Then my final destination would be the Jurassic Age to see the dinosaurs. As you were reading/hearing what I said I hope that you assume that I like U.S.A. history and how dinosaurs were like. I would see a pleather of things in the time period on 1920s-1980s. For instance, I would get tutored by Albert Einstein himself. Also I will also purchase ten pairs of Back to the Future shoes, and then sell them in the present for profit. I will also see what Northern Cambria (Spangler/Barnesboro) was like. Throughout these years that I would travel, I would get myself different types of suits and get a mint-conditioned Johnny Cash Album –the rare one. The next time period would be from 1776 to the 1820s to see what old America was like. For instance, I would look for George Washington to see what he looked like and to hear how he spoke. Next I would see the Declaration of Independence being made and actually be part of their conference for the Declaration of Independence. Also, since I am a coin collector, I would take hundreds of the first coins that were made in the U.S.A. I will also, from a distance with binoculars, watch how the War of 1812 unraveled and took form. Most likely, the......

Survival Traveling

...SURVIVAL TRAVELING Although, Costa Rica is one of the safest countries in the world in which to travel, tourists as well as all visitors, should be cautious just like anywhere across the globe. This chapter of Survival Trekking covers the basics of traveling safely and is intended for the adventure traveler. The purpose of this information is to assist the reader in becoming a “hard target” instead of “soft target” and a statistic we end up reading about in the newspapers. Although I use Costa Rica as the example, these techniques can be and should be applied anywhere in the world that you might travel, because crime and terrorism can happen anywhere, at any time. "If a criminal wants to get me, then there is nothing I can do to stop him." This attitude is typical of many travelers in foreign countries, but there are many things that we can do to prepare ourselves becoming less vulnerable to criminal and terrorist acts. The goal is to turn ourselves into “hard targets” instead of “soft targets,” thus making ourselves undesirable targets, which the would-be criminal will pass and go on to the next unfortunate person. Simply put, it’s like auto theft; if a car thief comes to your locked vehicle with the windows rolled up and an alarm system, then he will most likely go to the next vehicle looking for one that is not as secure. The same can be said for many types of criminal acts as criminals and terrorists look for soft targets that involve little risk and......

...retraining) than on job-creation measures (Meidner and Rehn et al., 1953, pp. 92-3). The purpose of labour market policy was, after all, not only to maintain full employment and combat inflation by contributing to a decline in actual profit margins. The policy was also intended to counteract inflationary bottlenecks in the labour market and support structural change in general. A further task of mobility-enhancing labour market policies in the Rehn-Meidner model is to back up the solidarity wage policy in its endeavours to build a fair wage structure and rapid structural change. A wage policy of solidarity - which can be achieved through coordinated wage negotiations only - implies that employees with 5 Rehn (1952a, p. 32, (1977, p. 212) and (1982, p. 44); Meidner and Rehn et al. (1953, pp. 46-9 and 99); Rehn (1987, p. 67), see also Erixon (2000, pp. 38-40 and 67). The argument that labour market policy should strengthen the bargaining position of labour is critical e.g. in the case of Sweden where economic compensation at retraining schemes is equal to unemployment compensation for trade union members. By their strong emphasis on market forces in wage formation (see wage drift) Rehn and Meidner could have argued instead that labour market policy keeps up wage growth by maintaining labour scarcity per se. Labour market training and relief work in particular may alleviate wage competition by reducing the number of job applicants and the intensity of job......
