Here Be Dragons

And robots and hyperloops and driverless planes and who knows what else in the future of travel
Ever since adventurers set sail to explore the farthest corners of the earth, the journey has had its share of perils, both real and imagined. Early map makers populated these unknown regions with pictures of serpents and wild beasts to warn early travelers that beyond this point, there’s no telling what you’ll find. It was the medieval equivalent of today’s ‘enter at your own risk’ signs.

Voyaging to strange destinations, or by unproven means, has always given travelers pause for thought, whether it was fears of sailing off the edge of a flat earth or a steam locomotive that could travel faster than a horse could gallop.
