Origin of the Word “Travel” (This explains so much…)

It is no wonder that people tend to experience so much difficulty when traveling. The word travel is derived from the French word travail, but travail in turn originated from a Latin word that described a torture device. It seems that the originators of our language were trying to warn us about the challenges associated with travel. Creating a word synonymous with torture might be considered a hint. Perhaps this perspective will allow people to enjoy travel more by understanding that by nature, travel could always be a lot worse.
