Travel is the transport of people on a trip or journey. Reasons for travel include:

  • Visiting friends and family
  • Trade
  • Commuting–going to various routine activities, such as work or meetings.
  • Migration—travel to begin life somewhere else; nomadic people do this
  • Pilgrimages—travel for religious reasons

The word originates from the Middle English word travailen ("to toil"), which comes from the French word travailler ("travail").
