The origin of the word “travel” is most likely lost to history. The term “travel” may originate from the Old French word travail.[3] According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the first known use of the word travel was in the 14th century. It also states that the word comes from Middle English travailen, travelen (which means to torment, labor, strive, journey) and earlier from Old French travailler (which means to work strenuously, toil).

In English we still occasionally use the words travail and travails, which mean struggle. According to Simon Winchester in his book The Best Travelers’ Tales (2004), the words travel and travail both share an even more ancient root: a Roman instrument of torture called the tripalium (in Latin it means “three stakes”, as in to impale). This link reflects the extreme difficulty of travel in ancient times.

      Albi hat uns sehr nett empfangen und uns extra noch weitere Bettwäsche geholt und ein weiteres Bett bezogen. Die Unterkunft ist schön groß und sehr ordentlich. Wir sind zum Frühstücken zum Bäcker an der Ecke mit Blick auf die Staatsoper gegangen. Die Lage ist super!

      Communication with the hosts was very smooth and hospitable. The property is centrally located and has many restaurants. The rooms are quiet, have a terrace and are very cute. It would have been better if there were extra towels.

      This is a beautiful space with a lovely balcony that feels like a secret oasis in the middle of the city. Amazing neighborhood, near to a lot of cool cafes, bars, shops ,and restaurants - but also to the center of town!
