When you think of the ancient times, everything seems odd compared to the endless possibilities we have today. We have to scratch our brains to think how people handled life back then, when they had almost nothing. One thing that comes in mind is traveling. We all have heard stories of all kinds how our parents or grandparents used to describe their way to school, or walking from one place to another. Traveling is one of the many things that have gone through a drastic change for so many reasons. Earlier traveling used to be about exploring new lands and things unseen before, now it’s just something fashionable to do.
A significant improvement it’s the transportation vehicle itself. If you hate a flying on a cramped plain or train, imagine being cramped into a horse carriage on a bumpy road for hours or even days sometimes, just stopping to spend the night in a tend.
Before traveling with a carriage was only for the wealthy and privileged. Compared to the fact that now people travel alone or with family and friends, in the past they traveled with their servants, and people of the staff who would carry their stuff and set a tend for resting.
Everything was way more difficult, but yet somehow people managed to enjoy the little things. Maybe this is going to be a nice reminder next time we embark on a trip and start complaining about the smallest things that will infuriate us.
