People didn't travel in the middle ages. It was hard, expensive, and dangerous. To go 30 miles would take days. It isn't until the 1400's ( the middle ages are over then) when explorers began to explore the world. When exploring did start a lot changed. How people viewed the world changed, the foods they ate changed, new ideas began to form, and a whole new world opened.

What systems aided European travel and communication middle ages?

There was no "system" for either travel or communication in the middle ages. Most people never went beyond 5 miles from home in their life. It was hard to travel, dangerous, and took a long time. Communication was talking to each other. People couldn't read nor write and there was no mail system, so if someone had to tell another person something they had to do it in person. One reason we have testimony in the courts today is because in the middle ages people had to tell about the problem and what was wrong to the Lord of their manor/estate.
