The most popular medium for traveling in recent times has become traveling through air. Whether the distance between destinations is small of long travel by air seems to be the preferred choice among travelers. Since air travel saves a lot of time and hassles that may be encountered when traveling by road. But the time saved has led to a sacrifice in the excitement of journey. Though traveling by land on open roads does take more time yet it is still the best way to enjoy a journey. It gives one an opportunity to relish the sceneries and the landscape views along the roads. In earlier times apart from reaching destinations the journey itself would also be a cause to cherish. In modern days also many people sometimes choose traveling through road instead by air to experience the joy of moving from one place to another.
