As we all know, travelling on a regular basis is beneficial to our well being. Various research have already proven the wonders of travel. It’s been proven that travelling makes you happier, makes you more attractive and even makes you more wiser.
One of the best studies so far about travel is that of a 40-year study conducted by the University of Helsinki. The results of the research concluded that people who take less than three weeks off work every year were 37% more likely to die young than those who gave greater priority to their vacation time. In simpler terms, those who travel more and those who take more vacations are most likely to live longer as compare to those who work more and take less vacation.
So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and take that overdue vacation leave. Travel now so that you will live longer!

Philippine Airlines (PAL) used to be one of the largest Asian airlines. However, due to the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis the said airline suffered huge loses. It was one of the Philippines' biggest corporate failures, PAL was forced to downsize its international flights. It completely stopped its flight operations to Europe and Middle East, cutting virtually all domestic flights except routes operated from Manila, reducing the size of its fleet, and laying off thousands of employees. The said airline was placed under government receivership in 1998, but it gradually restored most of its operations to many destinations later on. The airline got out of receivership in 2007 and from then on, PAL slowly re-established itself as one of Asia's premier airline.
