Every day hundreds of people travel from one place to another. They travel to work,
to school or on business. Many people travel for pleasure and travelling has recently become
one of the most popular hobbies. In every season of the year the airports, railway stations,
seaports and bus stops are full of people travelling for long or short distances.
When people travel a long distance they usually travel by air. Travelling by air is
exciting, fast, comfortable, relatively safe but rather expensive. Travelling by train is the
most common form of travelling. Trains are cheap, less polluting, safe but not very clean and
comfortable. Fast trains and through trains are more comfortable for longer distances. They
do not stop at every station. There are also a sleeping car and the dining car in fast trains
which make the travelling by train more pleasant. Coaches are buses for long distance
travelling. They are fast, comfortable and the prices of tickets are quite reasonable. During
holidays the travel agencies offer many coach trips to the mountains or seaside resorts.
Many people consider car the most comfortable means of travelling and seeing places.
Others think it is just a necessity because i tis quicker than public transport. But for many
people motoring is a pleasure. They enjoy driving a car at a high speed and do not thikn of
the dangers of fast driving. It concerns especially to young drivers who contribute much to
the accident rate which is very high in this country. The people´s opinions on cars differ quite
a lot. They range from positive to negative ones. The cars are comfortable and quick. They
are not safe and are rather expensive. Many young people of all countries of the world like
travelling by bike. Som ego to school by bike, others prefer cycling as a sport or a hobby. In
recent years many young people go for holiday trips by bike which is both healthy and
exciting. This type of travelling depends much on weather and therefore summer is the best
season for cycling tours.
