Throughout time, people have travelled for a variety of reasons. In past times, travelling away from home may have been vital in a group’s survival, for example, in the case of searching for food or a safe place to live. Travelling also helped people to find and sell items as needed. Nomadic groups travelled extensively moving from one place to another in order to find food, pasture for their cattle and trade opportunities.

For many people, it is no longer necessary to travel in order to search for food or a safe place to live. We may need to travel to our places of work, schools, and colleges and to visit family or friends and a great number of people choose to travel for pleasure. These journeys may be made in a variety of ways, for example using public transport, airplanes, by bike or on foot depending on the distance and aim of the journey. Regarding travelling for pleasure, it may be the journey itself that is the focus for example in the case of hikers or mountain climbers.

Crystals can be used to help facilitate safe travel and as protective amulets. They can also be used to aid and prevent some of the issues people may experience connected to travel for example homesickness, travel sickness and jet lag. Whether you are making a journey across your town to work or school or making an around the world trip, crystals can be a great support along the way.
