Travel today has made things easier and complex at the same time

Published on : Monday, October 16, 2017

globeTravel has always been viewed as an unpredictable activity. Anything unprecedented can happen when one travels. This can be thrilling or uncomfortable, enriching or life-threatening.

 
When you are traveling around the world, you get to see and hear all those violent events on television or view them online. Your mind tells you to worry, even if you are completely safe.

 
In spite of all threats, international tourist arrivals were around 1.235 billion in 2016, and the growth in global tourism shows no signs of slowing down.

 
Beyond physical safety, cultural and political tensions have created a hostile environment for those looking to spend time amid a different culture in a different country.

 
A vacation means an escape from the banality of life, a way to experience new cultures, and a chance to enjoy luxuries that you normally wouldn’t.

 
As many tourists aspire to “live like a local” while on vacation, it is becoming more and more apparent that locals don’t want to live like a tourist.

 
Travel experiences have become more complex for vacationers than ever before in recent years. At the same time, low-cost airlines have made it easier for travelers to reach destinations without spending much, but also, air travel in many areas of the world has given rise to a lot of frustrations.

 
Roomshare companies like Airbnb have added an additional layer of complexity in choosing accommodations. Over tourism is also creating havoc in the lives of common people in many countries.

 
Different cities like Barcelona and Venice have adopted different methods to deal with the deluge of tourists.

 
Hence, today, globalization is seen as problematic by many.
