The travelling is a far concept. On this case we have the travelling in the holidays. With the development of the traffic also runs the development of the travelling. Almost all people travel. One do not travel because they have no money. Germans have money and may travel, this is why they travel mostly. Slovaks have little money, but they may already travel. And we also want it. There are a lot of reasons for travelling: we must do an official travel, we want to rest or to us recover, get to know new countries, customs or people, earn money, visit places of interest and also young people want to find new friends and improve her linguistic profficiency.
Sometimes one travels because he is not contented with the political situation in his residence. This traveling is called an emigration. One goes where he can fulfil the purpose his trip. If one wants to rest, go one by the sea or in the mountains.
Somebody may lay on the beach and sun. Somebody likes skiing in the mountains. If one wants to visit places of interest, he goes in historical towns. There he can admire historical churches,cathedrals and visit museums.
Families mostly go by bus or by car because by airplane it is too expensive. But by airplane it is very comfortable and safe.
If we come where we want, we must search lodging. People can spend the night at the hotel , motel, at relatives, or also in the tent. If we furnish everything urgently, finally, we can enjoy the life: we can swim, sunbathe, walk on the beach.
All gladly travel because the traveling opens new horizons.
Thieves Target Distracted Flyers
If you plan on traveling through any local airport in the coming days or weeks, keep this in mind: Thieves are looking for you.
Police say it is very easy to get ripped off if you’re not watching. They say the thieves only need a few seconds to spot a person who is not paying attention to their bags and take what they want. Officers call them „distraction thieves“ — people who wait for you to ignore your bags and then swipe them.
Are Your Checked Bags Safe From Thieves?
Anytime you have a large amount of people together in one place, there’s always the potential for people to try and come here and take advantage of that.
Aside from uniformed officers, undercover cops and those watching through surveillance cameras have been planting decoy bags as bait. Officers said thieves can grab your bag in the time it takes for you to make a quick phone call. Investigators said the newstand is another popular spot to snag bags from distracted travelers.
Experienced travelers say they see too many other passengers as easy targets. „(They are worried about) where their tickets or their passports are. I think the last thing on their minds is where the bags are at that time,“ said passenger Darren Sullivan.
Remember this simple advice when you fly: Keep those bags in hand or nearby or under your own watchful eye.

How can I protect my safety while traveling abroad?
Do the research so you’ll know the particular risks you face.
Know the local laws and abide by them.
Register your whereabouts with the U.S. Embassy if you are staying longer than two weeks or are in a particularly dangerous area.
Dress conservatively and try to blend in. If you are in an area with groups of people hostile to the United States, and there are many, avoid clothing or other items that openly label you as a U.S. citizen. You might be safer if they think you are a Canadian.
Take care when choosing your hotel and transportation providers.
If you haven’t left your valuables at home, leave them in your hotel’s safe.
Don’t draw attention to yourself, avoid wearing flashy jewelry and don’t display large amounts of cash. Carry only enough cash to make it through the day and leave the rest in the hotel’s safe.
Avoid travelling alone.
Be careful about sharing your travelling plans with strangers.
Stick to the main roads and avoid taking shortcuts down narrow alleys and/or poorly lit streets.
Always be aware of what is going on around you.
Only use taxis, tours and other transportation services with official markings. Only select transportation from official pickup points at transportation hubs.
Be very careful if you are asked to sell or part with your personal items. Many countries have restrictions on items foreigners can sell or give away and you can get into serious trouble for violating those laws.
Never accept gifts or packages from unknown parties.
Don’t accept items from locals to carry out of the country and deliver or mail to someone they know.
Approach any „special deals“ with caution, especially if you have to go off the beaten path to get them.
Know the laws about exchanging money. Only use official exchange facilities since this is another area that can get you into trouble fast.
Travel and Pets
Travelling with pets
When travelling with pets in extremely hot
weather: Check out the air conditioning unit in your car for functionality before travelling. Use a fan that plugs into the cigarette lighter as well. Place ice cubes into a sealed plastic bag and tie it in front of the duct of the air conditioner, passing the cool air over the ice – makes a swamp cooler affect. Use freezer blocks – place a large freezer block under your pet, with a sheet between the block and pet. Check to make sure your pet isn’t shivering – just comfortable from the blocks. It goes without saying, to keep plenty of fresh, cool drinking water available for your pet at all times. Also apply sunshades to back windows and the tailgate window (the kind you can see out of to drive safely).
