The Future in Travel with ASTA

Carlisle Bay in Antigua
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."  St. Augustine was well known for his influential quotes and this one speaks to many, especially with the summer travel season upon us.  Travel inspires us, excites us, brings us closer to the ones we love, and farther from the things that makes us worry.  St. Augustine knew something very important back in the times of the Ancient Romans, even when traveling to exotic locales was not by any means a norm.  He knew that the world was a vast place and to see it first hand, a necessity.

One study that was recently published by the International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies shows that travel actually does enrich our lives, that those who wander are happier than those who do not.  Anyone that plans a trip knows that not only is the actual vacation exciting, the anticipation of the get-away is also thrilling and the study shows just that.  It suggests a relaxing vacation not only can make the soul sing during the duration of the trip, but that a vacationers' joy is elevated for weeks, if not months, before the trip actually takes place.  With this knowledge, consumers are seeking the assistance of travel professionals to help them create a trip that will ensure a state of absolute bliss.  The American Society of Travel Agents is ready and willing to help consumers to connect with a knowledgeable travel professional.  If you are not currently a member of ASTA, now is the perfect time to join.  Be ready to be a part of something incredible.  Go to and learn everything you need to know to become the future in travel.
