MEANS OF TRAVELLING

Most people like to travel, because travelling gives you much new and interesting information about the world, different foreign countries, the nature and other people.

There are different means of travelling, and they have got their advantages and disadvantages.

You can travel on foot. This is hiking. It is the cheapest way to travel. You can go wherever you like — there isn’t any special route. You can stop and have a rest whenever and wherever you want. But it can take you much time to travel over far distances, and that’s why you can soon get tired.

A faster and a more comfortable way is travelling by car. But you must have enough money to buy petrol for your car, and still you can not travel very fast.

People also travel by coach: you don’t drive your car and don’t get tired. But this way of travelling takes much time as well.

You can cover longer distances by train or by plane, but then it is more expensive. Moreover, you don’t see anything behind the plane window.
