Though travel is a major part of modern life, almost unavoidable in some
vocations, this was not always the case. Most modern men and women
consider the speedy travel from one place to another to be a most
commonplace and normal event. We think nothing of getting on a plane and
finding ourselves, six hours later, across an ocean in a foreign country
completely different from where we left off. In fact, most modern men and
women will travel frequently in their lives, whether it be on bus, train,
plane or even car, making travel accessible to all those who would like
to partake.

There are a few basic reasons for travel. One of the most common and
oldest reasons to travel is to make money. Whether a traveler is hoping
to sell spices and silk or to get a commission on a supermarket in
Kentucky, this basic need to travel for business has stayed consistent
and present for hundreds of years. Another reason to travel is to engage
in the exchange of information. The most famous kind of traveling that
matches this description is probably the traveling undertaken by
missionaries. Missionaries travel to distance locales in order to share
information about a spiritual institution. Early on, many travelers went
on journeys in order to discover new lands. Some travelers still do that,
although they are not discovering them for the first time as the early
explorers had the pleasure to do.

Though the reasons for travel have not changed fundamentally, the ways in
which travelers get from one place to another have changed quite a lot.
Beginning with traveling under animal steam (preceded only by traveling
by foot) we have advanced past ships and cars to include planes and the
famous Concorde.

Just one thing has remained fundamentally the same throughout the entire
history of travel: luggage. Luggage is the traveling companion that
protects our treasures, preserves our identities and connects us to our
homes. It allows the traveler to bring back pieces of their new
experience to share with friends and family. Luggage alone is the single
traveler’s companion. Inside are all the comforts and smells of home and
ourselves, not matter where traveling may take us. In this way, the
traditional role of luggage has been one of comfort and familiarity,
allowing the travel to cross the globe while looking and feeling like
relaxed, confident and free.
