Example text

By the time of the powerful Old Kingdom pharaohs such as Rameses II (1292–1225 BC), the construction of the Pyramids at Giza and other major complexes was already a thousand years in the past, and they had become visitor attractions as well as tombs and sacred sites. On their walls are left messages by people who have made a special trip to see them and whose prime motivation seems to have been curiosity or enjoyment, but not religion. 5 One such message, scratched 1244 BC on the wall of the funerary chapel attached to Djoser’s pyramid, says ‘ Hadnakhte, scribe of the treasury came to make an excursion and amuse himself on the west of Memphis, together with his brother Panakhti, scribe of the vizier’.

Technological advances, which increased the speed of ships and aeroplanes and replaced luxury with efficiency, effectively ended the Golden Age – a process completed by the development of the jet engine after the Second World War, after which the majority of intercontinental travel was carried out by aeroplane, not by boat. By 1919, Thomas Cook had become the first travel agent to offer pleasure trips by aeroplane. The development of the motor car (following Henry Fords ‘Model T’ in 1908) was an equally significant travel milestone on land, meaning that journeys which previously could have only been possible by a combination of means (including horse power, foot and, later, railways) could start at the travellers’ front door and end at their destination with a personalized itinerary and single means of transport which accomplished the journey in a fraction of the time.

35 European countries with land frontiers adopted a more centralized system, and this greatly helped military movements. However, until the eighteenth century, travel in Europe (at least travel unrelated to commercial or religious activities) was only undertaken by a small, wealthy and mostly land-owning elite who travelled principally for educational and official purposes. The concept of leisure travel did not really exist until the eighteenth century, and even then was related to social class.
