Why You Should Travel to Places Near and Far

Some would say the advent of the ocean-going ships contributed the most to advance transportation, but one technological marvel that is less talked about is the internal combustion engine which powered the early cars, trains, ships, and propeller planes.  Because of its fuel efficiency, it was in great demand during the late 19th century.  For the first time, people living in rural areas could choose between several modes of transportation, and open their lives with more worldly experiences.

It’s amazing that even today, there are people who have never left their home state to travel to another one, let alone another country.  Even in a world class metropolis like New York, there are those who have never left the borough they were born in.  It’s a shame that with all the means of getting around we have now, more people don’t take the time to experience something new.  Maybe by reading this blog, they will be encouraged to make a change.

If you’ve never traveled beyond your front gate and want to, a great way to start is by searching the website of the chamber of commerce or calendar of events in the city or town you wish to visit.  Then you can make plans to attend an event there.  This give you direction and purpose.  What you’ll love are the things  that will happen along the way.   You can be sure new experiences are just waiting for you to enjoy them, and you’ll feel proud that you finally got out of your rut and had some fun.  Searching Groupon for a deal on a rental car from Enterprise Rent-A-Car would be another smart move.  They have a large fleet of cars and rental rates that will work with every budget.  They even have a deal called You Pay, We Pick.  You pay a low rate, and let them decide which vehicle to put you in.  Depending on what’s on the lot that day, you could wind up driving an upgraded full-size car for the price of a compact.

When you’re ready to take on an international trip, it’s good to know that Enterprise has more than 7,600 offices in 85 countries worldwide so they will probably have an office in a major city or airport at your destination.  So go ahead and do as millions of people have done for hundreds of years –  get out there and see the world.
