WAYS OF TRAVELLING

Modern life is impossible without travelling. To begin with most of us travel every day to our universities, offices, factories, homes. From time to time we have to go to another city or country on business. So, with modern services you can go around the world.

Millions of people all over the world go abroad to see other countries and continents, modern cities and the ruins of ancient towns. It is always interesting to discover new things, to see different ways of life, exotic places, to meet local cuisine, to try different food, to listen to different music.

You can choose the means of transport you like: plane, train, ship, bicycle or you can travel hiking.

If you want to get somewhere as quickly as possible the fastest way is to travel by plane. It is better to book tickets in advance. When you are on the board of airliner it is possible to see land. It is like a geographical map.

Travelling by train is slower than by plane but it has its advantages. For example, you can always see the countryside around you.

Travelling by sea is the best way for people who are going on holiday and want a pleasant voyage. On board a large cruise ship travelers cross oceans and visit other countries.

Many people prefer travelling by car. This way you can explore the nearby towns and cities. The greatest advantage is that you can stop whenever you like.

Coach tours are not expensive and very popular. They are planned holidays and there is a chance to see a lot of sights and have a good rest at the same time.

All means of travel have their advantages and disadvantages. People choose one according to their plans and destination.
