It is very interesting to travel. Many people love traveling. They travel to see other countries, to know more about their traditions and culture, to enjoy visiting places of interest.
There are many ways of traveling: by air, by train, by ship, by car. Everyone chooses their favorite way. If you like to watch the scenery and you enjoy the process of traveling, it will be easier to travel by car. But traveling by car is not very comfortable if you travel long distances. It takes a lot of time and money.
To travel by train is also exciting. It is usually chosen by people who have enough time to get from one place to another. Train is a cheap means of traveling. Modern trains have very comfortable seats and people can sleep during the journey.
Traveling by ship is also very popular now. It is very pleasant to see the rise and fall of the waves, to feel the fresh sea wind blowing in your face and hear the cry of sea gulls. But some people get sea-sick and traveling by ship is difficult for them.
Traveling by plane also has its advantages and disadvantages. Traveling by plane is preferred by people who haven’t got much time and they must quickly get to another city or country. Modern planes have very comfortable seats in all cabins, and there are first class, business and economy class cabins. During the flight you can have something to drink and to eat. You can also read some free magazines and newspapers. But traveling by plane has its minuses, too. It is the most expensive form of transport. If the luggage weighs more than 20 kilograms, you have to pay extra.
I love traveling. My favorite way is air traveling because it is very comfortable, quick and amazing.
