What are some advantages of traveling around the world?

travel around the world

Traveling is a good habit, but it is very important which place you choose for traveling because it depends on your health. If you are a businessman, then you can easily understand that traveling is the perfect investment for yourself which refreshes your mind and keeps all the stress away for a while. More than 65% of people spend their life by traveling, because they need refreshment at least once a year.  If you want to travel, then don’t take a short trip. Instead, travel around the world which gives you the full benefit of a true holiday.

This also gives you the advantage of continuing to travel throughout your life.

Advantages of Traveling

# Makes You Feel Like an Adventurer

Traveling gives you the best experience and brings out one of the best adventurers from you. As much as you travel, the excitement increases for another destination. Before visiting almost everyone checks out a brief history of that place before they go. While going in deep, it gives the motivating feeling that makes your mind see once in a lifetime experiences, and the list increases with every single adventure, so you become the adventurer which is the best advantage.

# Allows You To Try Amazing Food

This advantage is one of my best points while traveling. Every single person loves food, and if the same daily food which you had since your mum has made it for you is your current experience, then enjoying new food presents you with a different way to bring the excitement of traveling. It doesn’t matter whether you are vegetarian or non-vegetarian, as the same food is made in a different way. If you travel all around the world, then you understand the real meaning of having food which gives you good health, taste, and memories.

# Makes You More Interesting

It is common in human nature that when you change the destination, then your behavior also changes. If your friends, family members, or office mates have returned from long travel, you absorb the changes in that person which shows as a good sign of joyous traveling experience. When you refresh your mind, then your behavior changes mostly in good ways. If you are disturbed by something and that’s making a bad impression in your society, then you should plan to travel around the world to refresh your mind. According to research, if a person is mentally disturbed, then s/he should take a break, because if s/he does nothing, then this stress changes the face reflecting a mental disease which makes life even worse. On the other hand, if s/he leaves everything behind and takes a break and goes on a traveling trip in a different part of the world, then this person’s personality returns polished for better than the old one. People get really surprised with the new change a long travel journey can bring, and the positive signs in social society status.

# Makes You Love Your Home Even More

There is a real magic in traveling which I personally saw in my life. My elder brother was very disturbed in his business life, and he spent all his time in the office, outside the home. But when he came back from a long travel, he totally changed, and it took care of most of the parts related to home that he previously had not even seen. I think that we never understand the real value of those things which are close to us, for the only reason being that we need something that makes us realize this, like when there is a threat of losing it.

You should take traveling around the world seriously, and you will understand what you are losing and take control on it, otherwise, it will be lost completely.

# Improves Your Understanding Of Other Cultures

Getting knowledge from the social media or books is not so impressive, but when you know about the culture around the world personally, then you get the best knowledge from other cultures. If you are traveling around the world, you should get personal knowledge about Africa, Arab life, and India which is so rich in culture that you may need to visit more than once.

# Disconnects You From Your Daily Life

Traveling is very important in your life, because your mind is getting the same stress daily which is not good for your health. You should disconnect with your daily life from time to time, and this is possible when you travel to a far destination. This will rid your mind of that daily life routine and give you the opportunity to take a long drive that impulses your mind to think new positive thoughts.

# Creates Lifetime Memories

Traveling also gives you a treasure trove of memories that cannot be lost or stolen by any means. You definitely collect lots of remarkable traveling stories that you share with your friends, family, and even to your grandchildren with interest building that everyone wants to listen to your traveling experiences. This treasure of stories is one of the best advantages that will be with you in your lifetime until the very end.


The main reason to travel is to give yourself a change which brings you a new, more polished personality. Traveling makes you smarter, because your brain gets refreshment from traveling around the world. You meet other people during travel and make new friends which helps you expand your social network in a real way from people you have personally met. You will even feel fit and strong from inside like you were in your college days – something your doctor can never give you even if you spent thousands of dollars.

So, you should once in a while travel in life, and if you have any questions related to this topic, send your comments to us, and we will be able to help you choose your destination.

$586 million airport infrastructure grants: What U.S. airports are included?

U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao today announced the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will award $586 million in airport infrastructure grants, as part of the total $3.18 billion in Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding for airports across the United States.

“These airport investments will create jobs in local communities, upgrade reliability, and further improve safety of air travel for the flying public,” said Secretary Chao.

This fifth increment of funding provides 217 grants to 181 airports in 39 states, and will fund 458 infrastructure projects. These include runways, taxiways, aprons, terminals, aircraft rescue and firefighting vehicles, snow removal equipment, and two firefighting training facilities.

Under the Secretary’s leadership, the Department is delivering AIP investments to strengthen the safety and efficiency of America’s airports. U.S. infrastructure, especially its 3,323 airports and 5,000 paved runways, increases the country’s competitiveness and improves the traveling public’s quality of life. According to the FAA’s most recent economic analysis, U.S. civil aviation accounts for $1.6 trillion in total economic activity and supports nearly 11 million jobs.

Airports receive a certain amount of AIP entitlement funding each year based on activity levels and project needs. If their capital project needs exceed their available entitlement funds, the FAA can supplement their entitlements with discretionary funding.

Among the grant awards announced are:

Northwest Alabama Regional Airport in Muscle Shoals, AL, $5.6 million – the airport will use funds to repair the final phase of Runway 11/29 to maintain the structural integrity of the pavement and to minimize foreign object debris on the runway. This grant also reconstructs 69 existing airfield guidance sign fixtures.

Kenai Municipal Airport in Kenai, AK, $10.6 million – this grant funds the upgrade of the terminal building to enhance the movement of passengers, baggage, and cargo.

Van Nuys Airport in Van Nuys, CA, $20.8 million– the grant funds the second phase and reconstructs 16,000 feet of Taxiway A and B pavements that have reached the end of their useful lives.

Chicago Midway International Airport in Chicago, IL, $12.6 million – the airport will use funds to repair multiple taxiway lighting systems and runway lighting system and guard lights. This grant also reconstructs 30,400 square yards of apron pavements.

Louisville International-Standiford Field Airport in Louisville, KY, $21.9 million– this grant funds multiple projects to include repairs to runway and taxiway pavements and lighting systems, aprons and concrete shoulders, and airfield guidance sign fixtures.

Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport in New Orleans, LA, $20.3 million – the airport will use funds to expand the existing terminal apron to 54,675 square yards to accommodate increased aircraft operations.

Shreveport Regional Airport in Shreveport, LA, $9.1 million – this grant funds the final construction phase to extend Runway 6/24 by 800 feet to meet the operational needs of the airport.

Madras Municipal Airport in Madras, OR, $2.9 million – the airport will use funds to construct the final phase of the parallel taxiway pavement that has reached the end of its useful life.

Philadelphia International Airport in Philadelphia, PA, $18.2 million – funds will be used to repair multiple taxiway pavements. This project also will fund repairs to apron pavements and multiple taxiway lighting systems to enhance safe airfield operations during low visibility conditions.

Myrtle Beach International Airport in Myrtle Beach, SC, $14.0 million – this project funds the reconstruction of 14,000 feet of the existing taxiway pavement and the second phase of repairs to multiple taxiways.

Nashville International Airport in Nashville, TN, $4.3 million – the airport will use the grant to repair 2,100 feet of Taxiway L East pavement that has reached the end of its useful life.

Valley International Airport in Harlingen, TX, $7.6 million – this grant reconstructs 77,000 square yards of the general aviation apron pavement that has reached the end of its useful life.

IATA: Quarterly Cargo Market Analysis


Annual growth in air freight tonne kilometers (FTKs) slowed to 2.8% in the three months ended July – its slowest pace on this basis in more than two years. While FTKs are continuing to increase in seasonally adjusted (SA) terms, the upward trend has slowed markedly from that seen during the best of the upturn in air freight last year.

This largely reflects the fact that the inventory restocking cycle, which helped air freight growth to outperform that of wider global trade in 2016/17, has now run its course. More generally, against a backdrop of rising trade protectionism measures, wider momentum in world trade also looks to be weakening.

Cargo yields have continued to trend upwards in H2 2018, albeit at a slower pace than a year ago. While the industry-wide load factor is trending down, ongoing high rates of freighter aircraft utilization will continue to help to reduce average costs, and to help offset ongoing upward pressure on costs, particularly from higher fuel prices.

Hotel Opening: The Glen House at Mt. Washington, New Hampshire

The Glen House, a new 68-room hotel at the base of Mt. Washington, opened today in New Hampshire.
Owned by the Mt. Washington Summit Road Company (MWSRC) and managed by Olympia Hotel Management, The Glen House is just 30 minutes from North Conway and situated near the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road, which the family-owned MWSRC has operated since 1906.
The Glen House has deep, historic roots in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The new hotel is the fifth iteration of The Glen House to be built near the site of the original hotel, a landmark that opened in 1852 as tourists began to flock to the summit of 6,288 foot Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast. The new hotel carries on the tradition of its predecessors and is the first property to stand on this site in more than half a century.
The new Glen House is the ideal base camp for those who love the outdoors and adventures in the White Mountains. Adjacent to the Mt. Washington Auto Road, which offers the most majestic views in New England from the top of Mt. Washington, the hotel is steps away from the hiking, biking and cross country trails of the Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center. As a fall foliage destination, the White Mountains are unrivalled in the Northeast. When the snow flies, the location offers the best cross country skiing and snowshoeing in New Hampshire and is just minutes away from the alpine trails of Wildcat Mountain Ski Area.
The heart of The Glen House is a welcoming great room that extends from the lobby to a sitting area with a towering stone fireplace, an open bar area and massive windows framing a view of Mt Washington and neighboring peaks in the Presidential Range. The cathedral ceiling, oversize chairs and the sense of space give this room the feeling of a classic White Mountain lodge. The great room leads to an expansive outside deck that’s partly covered, with ample seating and a stone fire pit, perfect for après ski sessions.
The design of this newest incarnation of The Glen House pays homage to the classic White Mountain hotels of the 1850’s, utilizing clapboards and painted trim in a style similar to its predecessors. Half of the rooms have views of Mt. Washington and sunset, while the others look towards neighboring Maine and the Wildcat Mountain Ski Area for sunrise views. Artwork embraces both the history of the Mt. Washington Auto Road and the four previous hotels. There is a gym and an indoor salt water swimming pool, with complimentary WiFi throughout the property.
The Glen House Hotel will be close to energy self-sufficient and carbon neutral, thanks to a geothermal system that will provide heating and cooling as well as two offsite energy-generating projects harnessing hydro and solar power. The hotel was designed and built by New Hampshire firms, including BMA Architectural Group of Amherst, interior designers Stibler Associates LLC of Manchester and contractors Martini Northern of Portsmouth.
The Glen House restaurant, The Notch Grille, is under the direction of Chef John Ginter and serves “comfort food with a twist.” The adjacent bar and outdoor patio with fire pit is the ideal place to sip a local brew after hiking or skiing and enjoy panoramic views of Mt. Washington. The restaurant, which is open to the public, will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with brunch on the weekends, as well as a mid-afternoon social menu and an après ski menu.
The three-story hotel is designed to serve active outdoor travelers as well as guests driving the famous Mt. Washington Auto Road, the most famous mountain drive east of the Rockies. Considered America’s oldest man-made attraction, the road opened in 1861 and welcomed tourists first in stagecoaches and later in automobiles. The Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, owned by MWSRC, is across the road from The Glen House and offers 40 km of walking and hiking trails, trail biking, guided wilderness kayaking and white water kayaking trips. Winter activities include Nordic skiing on 45 kilometers of classic and skate-groomed trails, snowshoeing, fat biking, snow tubing and winter tours up the mountain on the Mt. Washington SnowCoach. The Wildcat Mountain Ski Area is a short drive from the hotel.
Thanks to a range of flexible spaces and facilities, a dedicated catering staff and a full-service restaurant that offers indoor and outdoor seating, The Glen House hotel is on track to become one of the premiere locations in The White Mountains for destination weddings. The setting is also ideal for honeymoons.
The Glen House offers more than 5,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor space and seats up to 200 guests, making it ideal for social events, business meetings and corporate retreats. The hotel is a full-service meeting and event venue, with a dedicated meeting staff.
