Travel

Travel is the movement of people between relatively distant geographical locations, and can involve travel by foot, bicycle, auto mobile, train, boat, air plane, or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way or round trip. Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements.

All travel can be stressing we have here seen on travelling by air sine to be honest we are not to familiar whit train travelling.

 

As you know the stress begin already when you start to pack your suitcase, and have to think about what to take whit you and to hold the weight on around 23 kg (some airlines accept up to 30 kg and some airlines accept just 15 kg).


We will just give general info about this since the topic travel is big and take to much space on the page.

It's important that you plan your trip before you go. Since the most stressing part of the trip will be the airports, and the security checks.

 

Stick to this list of 10 tasks and air travel tips for first-time flyers and globetrotters alike, and you will be ready and on your way in no time.

How to prepare for your next flight

 

1. Research your trip

2. Make plans

3. Have passport, IDs and visas ready

4. Obtain travel insurance

5. Get immunizations

6. Fill prescriptions

7. Prep your home

8. Secure your finances

9. Pack smart

10. Prep for airport security


Short and Long haul Flights

Absolute distance versus flight length

A flight is typically planned to follow a direct route wherever possible to minimise flight length. For long-haul flights, the most direct route follows a great circle along the diameter of the Earth. 

Short-haul flight:

Under 3 hours

Medium-haul flight:

3 to 6 hours

Long-haul flight:

6 to 12 hours

Ultra long-haul flight:

Over 12 hours


For example, aircraft travelling westward between continents in the northern hemisphere often follow paths extending northward near or into the Arctic region. When shown on a conventional projection of a world map, the resulting route looks curved and appears longer than it really is. The great-circle distance between airports may therefore give a better indication of the shortest flight length.

 

Airline routes between San Francisco and Tokyo following the most direct great circle (top) westward, and following a longer-distance jet stream route (bottom) when heading eastward

However, a flight route must also take into account weather conditions, air currents, and fuel economy. A long-haul flight in an easterly direction often takes a longer more southerly route than the great circle in order to take advantage of the jet stream, a high-altitude wind that can allow an aircraft to cover a longer absolute distance using less fuel than on a more direct route.

Air time versus time zones on the ground.

Time on the ground will be affected by time zones. A flight going westward, or "chasing the sun", is lengthened, and conversely an eastbound flight is shortened in terms of clock time. This does not affect the classification as long, medium, or short haul.


We have some videos here that can be of interest for you. That explain this topic in a good and informative way.

Airports

An airport is an aerodrome with facilities for flights to take off and land. Airports often have facilities to store and maintain aircraft, and a control tower. An airport consists of a landing area, which comprises an aerially accessible open space including at least one operationally active surface such as a runway for a plane to take off or a helipad, and often includes adjacent utility buildings such as control towers, hangars and terminals. Larger airports may have fixed-base operator services, airport aprons, air traffic control centres, passenger facilities such as restaurants and lounges, and emergency services.

 

An airport with a helipad for rotorcraft but no runway is called a heliport. An airport for use by seaplanes and amphibious aircraft is called a seaplane base. Such a base typically includes a stretch of open water for takeoffs and landings, and seaplane docks for tying-up. An international airport has additional facilities for customs and passport control.

Air traffic control presence

The majority of the world's airports are non-towered, with no air traffic control presence. Busy airports have air traffic control (ATC) system. All airports use a traffic pattern to assure smooth traffic flow between departing and arriving aircraft. There are a number of aids available to pilots, though not all airports are equipped with them. Many airports have lighting that help guide planes using the runways and taxiways at night or in rain, snow, or fog. In the U.S. and Canada, the vast majority of airports, large and small, will either have some form of automated airport weather station, a human observer or a combination of the two. Air safety is an important concern in the operation of an airport, and airports often have their own safety services.
