Travelling
Modern life is impossible without travelling. Thousands of people travel every day either on business or for pleasure.
They can travel by air, by rail, by sea or by road.For some people there is nothing so exciting as traveling, and I'm not
an exception. And I'm happy that I have traveled a lot and I hope that every my journey wasn't the last one. First of all,
the members of our family usually have long walks in the country. During such walks we see a lot of interesting places,
sometimes we meet interesting people. It's useful for all members of our family. At this time we don't think about
tickets and there is no need to hurry up.Travelling by sea is very popular. Large ships and small river boats can visit
foreign countries and different interesting places.Of course, travelling by air is the fastest and the most convenient
way, but it is the most expensive too. Travelling by train is slower than by plane, but it has its advantages. You can see
much more interesting places of the country you are travelling through. Modern trains have very comfortable
seats.There are also sleeping cars and dining cars which make even the longest journey enjoyable. Speed, comfort and
safety are the main advantages of trains and planes. That is why many people prefer them to all other means.Every
year my friend and I go somewhere to the South for holidays. The Black Sea is one of the most wonderful places which
attracts holiday-makers all over the world. There are many sanatoriums and tourist camps there. Sometimes, we can
place ourselves in a tent on the sea shore enjoying fresh air and the sun all day long.As a rule, I make new friends there
during the trip. In the day-time with new friends we play volleyball, tennis, swim in the warm water of the sea. I like to
sit on the beach watching the sea and enjoying the sunset. I'm fond of mountaineering. So I do a lot of climbing
together with my friends. Time passes quickly and soon we have to make our way back. We return home sunburnt and
full of impressions.Sometimes I travel by ship. It's wonderful to feel the deck of the ship under the feet, to see the rise
and fall of the waves, to feel the fresh sea wind blowing in the face, hear the cry of the sea-gulls. Of course, the voyage
isn't exciting for those who are sea-sick.But I repeat again - the cheapest and enjoyable way to travel - is walking the
forest, country.I love travelling!
TRAVELLING
Millions of people all over the world spend their holidays travelling. They travel to see other countries and
continents, modern cities and the ruins of ancient towns, they travel to enjoy picturesque places, or just for a change
of scene. It is always interesting to discover new things, different ways of life, to meet different people, to try different
food, to listen to different musical rhythms.Those who live in the country like to go to a big city and spend their time
visiting museums and art galleries, looking at shop windows and dining at exotic restaurants. City dwellers usually like
a quiet holiday by the sea or in the mountains, with nothing to do but walk and bathe and laze in the sun.
Most travelers and holiday-makers take a camera with them and take pictures of everything that interests them — the
sights of a city, old churches and castles, views of mountains, lakes, valleys, plains, waterfalls, forests, different kinds of
trees, flowers and plants, animals and birds.Later, perhaps years later, the photos will remind them of the happy time
they once had.People travel by train, by plane, by boat and by car.All ways of travelling have their advantages and
disadvantages. And people choose one according to their plans and destinations.If we are fond of travelling, we see
and learn a lot of things that we can never see or learn at home, though we may read about them in books and
newspapers, and see pictures of them on TV. The best way to study geography is to travel, and the best way to get to
know and understand people is to meet them in their own homes.
I like to travel.
First of all, the members of our family usually have long walks in the country.Such walks are called hikes.
If we want to see countryside we have to spend a part of our summer holidays on hikes.During such hikes we see a lot
of interesting places, sometimes we meet interesting people.It's useful for all members of our family.
We take our rucksacksand a camera.We don't think about tickets and there is no need to hurry up.
As for me, it's more comfortable to travel by train and by plane.But it's difficult to buy tickets for the plane.
That's why we buy our tickets beforehand.When I travel by plane, I don't spend a lot of time going from one place to
another, I like to fly.If I travel by train or by plane my friends see me off at the railway station or in the airport.
I like to travel by car.It's interesting too, because you can see many things in a short time.When we go by car, we don't
take tickets.We put all things we need in a car.We don't carry them.Sometimes we go to the seaside for a few days.As
usual the weather is warm and we can swim.It's a pleasure to watch white ships.So I can say that I enjoy all kinds of
travelling very much.
In every person’s life there are momentswhen he wants to travel.Everybody understands travelling in his own manner.
Some people consider trips to new towns and countries offered by different tourist firms to be the best way to travel.
These package tours are for the laziest.I like to travel by sea. When we go to the seaside where my parents are taking a
car to visit all the interesting places.Others prefer walking tours and tourism.There is nothing more beautiful for them
than walking in some pinewood, or rowing down the river in a boat, or even riding a bicycle and enjoying the
landscape.There are also people who are fond of mountain climbing.The most unforgettable feeling for them is the
one you have at the peak of the mountain.And the view, which opens from it, is just magnificent.The sea has also
attracted mankind as one of the powers of nature.That is why sea tours are very popular among people.
They offer a great possibility to enjoy the sight of the sea in different seasons and weather, and also to open some new
towns and countries for oneself.For some people travelling is associated with visiting ancient cities.There one can see
ancient palaces, cathedrals and fortresses, visit different museums and follow the flow of time.There also exists a very
interesting and cheap kind of travelling — hitchhiking.It is very popular among young people.And it is not surprising —
one can get a real adventure full of romantics.And there are also people who like exotic kinds of travelling, like
travelling on a balloon.But only bold people can risk and surrender themselves wholly to the will of the wind.
Speaking about different types of travelling, one should say that any of them is a good method of having a rest and
spending some new unusual life.
