Modern life is impossible without travelling. True we often get tired of same surroundings and daily routine. To understand how true it is you have got to a railway station, a sea or a river port or an airport. There you are most likely to see hundreds of people hurrying to board a train, a ship or a plane. To be on the safe side and to spare yourself the trouble of standing long hours in the line, you would better book tickets in advance. Travelling by train is slower than by plane, but it has its advantages. You can see the country you are travelling through and enjoy the beautiful nature.

But if you are in a hurry and want to save your time you’d better travel by plane, because it is the fastest way of travelling. You sit down in comfortable armchair an in a few minutes you are already above the clouds.

Some people prefer to travel by ship when possible. A sea voyage is very enjoyable, indeed. But to my mind the best way of travelling is by car. The advantages of this way of spending your holiday are that you don’t have to buy a ticket, you can stop wherever you wish, where there is something interesting   to see. When you get tired of relaxation, you become home-sick and feel like  returning  home. You realize that “East or West” – “home is best”, as the saying goes.
