Prayers: Shorter prayers during travel

Q489 :Is it obligatory to shorten ones prayers during travel?

A489 : A traveller is strongly recommended to shorten his Dhur, Asr and Isha prayers to two raka'ahs each, because this is in line with what the Prophet has taught us. We do it not because prayers become a burden during travel; they do not. We do it praising Allah for the concession as an exercise of strength, not weakness. This is the proper attitude.
