Travel is as old as mankind. From the beginning of existence man roamed about in search of food, shelter, security & better habitat. In course of time, these movements transformed into wanderlust. Thousands of years ago, changes in climate, dwindling food & shelter conditions & hostile invaders forced people to leave their homes to seek refuge elsewhere, e.g., Aryans leaving their home in central Asia due to climatic changes. These movements led to emergence of trade between various areas. It was trade that first motivated travel in the real sense.
