The “permanxiety” of modern global travel
Travel — an act of discovery; an exploration of unknown landscapes, of exotic sounds and flavors, of foreign cultures and people, of unfamiliar languages, and of the self.
A trip abroad in the 21st century takes many forms. Many families and groups take vacations to foreign countries as an escape from the rhythm of everyday life. The global economy requires many professionals to travel great distances to conduct their business. Regardless of your travels’ purpose, a journey abroad has always instilled an innate sense of danger due to the total unfamiliarity of your surroundings.
This sense is exacerbated in our modern era thanks to the prevalence of international violence broadcast on television and social media. Skift, a digital media site for the travel industry, calls this modern travel reality a “State of Permanxiety”: a near-constant state of global anxiety that manifests in a concentrated form for travelers, who “endure a barrage of worries about terrorism, security, … culture wars, and other geopolitical and local issues.” With a near universal perception of danger associated with global travel, one might resolve to stay home. But travel is an act of liberation and self-discovery, and TigerSwan is committed to maintaining the wonder of travel while keeping you safe.
