Have you met a full-time traveler? Someone who travels round the clock, someone who keeps on traveling all the year from here to there? I’m talking about a professional traveler. Well, it is their job to travel around. They keep on moving from one place to the other. But what about others, those are not professional travelers. And what about you? How often do you travel? If you love traveling, you must be traveling at least once a month. Be it a short trip or a long journey. By the way, what are the factors which decide your traveling schedule, or what are the factors which influence your traveling routine? In this post, we will be talking about how many times do people travel? I recently came across a post where there was a survey of how often do people travel which included traveling within the country and traveling outside the country. Well, everyone has their own perspective and reasons for traveling. Some travel for business, some travel for leisure, some travel for adventure, and some have made it a profession. Moreover what type of travel activity are you involved in, also matters when we talk about how often you do love to travel?
So, how often do you travel domestically?
Okay, let us first of all talk about traveling within the country or say traveling domestically. And what is the distance that you cover? It can be a short journey, maybe you are exploring a place that isn’t too far away from your location. You can easily go there in the morning and return by night. Maybe you can go there on your weekends and spend some time there and come back. It depends on distance and time. I stay in Delhi there are tens of places where I can go on my weekends and return back the evening of Sunday or Monday morning. So, you too must be having such places at not so far distance where you can easily go and come back. Hence, this also decides how often you love to travel domestically?
How often do you travel internationally?
Traveling internationally is a little challenging. Not everyone can travel outside the country. Reason, money, and time. It’s comparatively costly and traveling internationally consumes lots of time. And when you are traveling internationally, you must be having plans of staying at least for some time so that you can visit around the place so that once you return back home, you won’t be having any regrets of missing out a place. These reasons are also responsible for deciding, how often do you plan to travel in a year?
While working in a nine to five job, it’s a little difficult to manage the time for traveling. But you never know you may get a ticket to travel from your company (well that depends, mine never gave, but I have seen people who travel on their company’s cost). If you are a business traveler and your organization is covering your all expenses, that’s a good reason for traveling
How often do you travel on the road?
Do you love traveling via road? I do. I find it very fascinating. I find it very exciting. Everyone has got their own choices. Traveling via road can be a little trouble for a few but not for everyone. And it’s a normal thing that traveling on road is experienced by almost every one of us. Maybe you are visiting some nearby places and traveling by road is the best and the cheapest option there.
How often do you travel by air?
Traveling by air can be both nationally or internationally. Mainly it’s internationally that’s what I see, though people also travel by air within the country. It is time-saving and comfortable, but it is not cost-effective as compared to traveling by road whereas traveling by road is again time-consuming and little challenging if you are traveling too far especially if the journey involves time more than round the clock, better to travel either by rail or travel by air.
How often do you travel interstate?
Traveling interstate can be due to several reasons. Maybe you are visiting a friend on his/her wedding, maybe you are traveling interstate because of your job or maybe you are traveling interstate to explore some ancient place. I have traveled interstate for exploring the places which are very famous and have heard a lot from others. Those were the places near to Delhi which can be visited on a journey of less than a week.
I have seen people who travel for a short distance and also I have seen people who don’t usually travel less than a week. But in both of the cases, one thing is still in concern, how often do you travel. We have got only 365 days a year, which includes our study, job, career, family, and lots of other things. And in these days, how many days do we take out for traveling and exploring the places around, depends on our desire for traveling. I do desire but I have not been able to travel very often. A friend of mine remains on the road with his bike very often. He travels a lot. Once I was reading an interview of a biker group who would travel at least thirty days nonstop on the bike. They would take a nap, would pack all they need and they would leave.
So how often do you like to travel a year? Do you plan out your traveling schedule every weekend of every month’s end? Do you spend time away from your home on the road, exploring and meeting new people and cultures? Travelling isn’t just about packing backs and leaving the town. There’s a lot more to do expect this all. Share your stories of how often do you travel.
