A Guide to Traveling
Travel is the transfer of individuals between different distant geographic locations. Travel can usually be done with no luggage, by car, bike, foot, plane, train, bus, boat or other mode, and is either one way or circular journey. In many cases, individuals use a combination of modes to travel long distances. The word “travel” typically refers to the act of moving from point A to point B, although it can include the act of transiting a region between these points on foot or by another mode.
A journey is described by an object’s motion between two places, at right angles to each other. Therefore, if you are travelling from Washington, DC, to Boston, Massachusetts, the distance is the product of the total path travelled times the angle between the places (atan(Washington, DC, -V+tax) or east-west along the west coast and west towards the south-eastern edge of Boston). In addition, travel terms are not constrained by the ends of the known paths as long as the travel time does not exceed the shortest distance between parallel points. Thus, a journey is a path along which objects are moved from point A to point B, and is not necessarily a straight line.
There are different ways to arrange travel according to different travel stages. Journey refers to a temporary movement from one place to another, such as between Paris and London. Circular journey is a repetitive cycle of going around a city in a similar way to travel around a planet. One way to characterize circular travel is that the end destination always appears to be closer than the starting place. Another common mode of travel is around a curve in a landscape, such as a circle passing through the middle of a landscape or through the center of a town. Traveling on this kind of circle requires more planning and speed than simple traveling in a straight line on a road or street.
