Why take holidays

SnapshotWhen the development of mankind is traced back, the first and foremost activity that mankind undertook happens to be the search of food. "Food gatherers" can be treated as the first "travelers" and since then the urge of mankind to engage in travel has been growing. Many milestones, such as the invention of currency and transport mechanisms were surpassed, and today that activity has grown into a large, diverse industry with plenty of social and economic dimensions.

Today, people undertake holidays to explore new lands, witness diverse cultures, celebrate events and occasions, indulge in adventure and be away from the daily chores of modern day living.
