“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.”               – Rosalia de Castro

How we get to where we want to be is fundamental to any traveler and transportation makes that happen.  Whether by plane, train, automobile, boat or spaceship—coming soon to a spaceport near you—getting around safely and securely is at the forefront of any traveler’s mind.   Because of the explosion of affordable travel in developed and emerging economies, global air networks, public transport systems and ride sharing services have made it easier to go anywhere than at any point in human history.
