Let’s talk about tourism.

Let’s talk about travelling. Why do people travel?

I must admit that nowadays tourism has become very popular and turned into a prosperous business. More and more people travel every year though the motivation for this is different. If you want to experience a whole new environment, to see new places and meet new people, travelling is the right way. Travelling on business allows people to get more information about achievements of other companies and helps them make their own business more successful. Some people travel for educational purposes, or they visit their distant relatives and Mends.

Today more and more people would prefer to spend their holidays travelling. Rich or poor, old or young they strive to leave the place where they live or work and move to another spot of our planet at least for a week.

As far as reasons for travelling are concerned, people travel to see other counMes and continents, modem cities and the mins of ancient towns, to enjoy picturesque places. It is always interesting to discover new thing and other ways of life, to meet different people, taste different food, examine various architectural styles, visit museums and art galleries. Travelling is a remarkable key to understanding other cultures, a wonderful opportunity to leam more about the world we live in.

What means of transport do you prefer and why?

Nowadays people can travel in different ways. People usually travel by air, by rail, by sea or by road. All means of travel have their advantages and disadvantages. And people choose one according to their likes and financial possibilities. Of course, travelling by air is the fastest and the most convenient way, but it is the most expensive too. Travelling by train is much slower, but it has its advantages. Not only have modem trains very comfortable seats, but also you can see much more interesting places of the country you are travelling through. Speed, comfort and safety are the main advantages of trains and planes. That is why many people prefer them to all other means. Travelling by sea is popular mostly for pleasure Mps.

As for me I prefer travelling by car. I think its very convenient. You dont need to reserve your tickets. You dont need to carry heavy suitcases. You dont depend on the timetable. You are free to stop and change the direction whenever you want. You can admire the landscapes you are passing by and you can take a break for a picnic if you feel hungry.
