I have being flying solo since I was 15 years old. The airports rules were changing and then there were computers.  Traveling many many years ago was very different.  There were not too many good quality accommodations or amenities that were offered at the airports.  There was no Internet where one can learn all the information. In our day and age, traveling is very different.  I went ahead and put all this information on my Travel Link page, so it can be all available at your finger tips.

In today’s world, travel isn’t restrictive. Regardless of whether you’re fit and health, have a physical impairment, learning disability, or any other condition, there should be no excuse to avoid travelling. You’ll be able to visit even the most exotic of destinations to experience what our planet has to offer. Go to INSURANCEWITH to read a full coverage.

When travelling by plane, a good part of your trip is spent at airports. In fact, on many trips you spend more time at an airport than you do flying.  Read a full coverage in the FRIENDSHIPCIRCLE travel guide.
