Travel is a wonderful experience for many. Gathering your things and boarding a plane or climbing into a car to set off into the distance, away from chaos where no emails or phone calls can reach you is a feeling many of us look forward to all year. Depending on your occupation, a lucky handful of us get to travel all the time — but are they actually lucky?
