Why, when and how do people travel?
People travel on business or for pleasure. Usually they travel when they are on holiday. When people wish to become tourists, they go to a travel agency and buy a tour to some country. They may travel by air, by train, by boat, by coach or by car. Young people may travel by bicycle or go hiking. Before booking your foreign holiday make sure you have an insurance policy. When you are abroad you should have some currency. All goods must be paid for in foreign currency only. The visa is the most essential thing. You can’t enter the country without it. When tourists arrive at the place of their destination they stay in hotels or motels, guesthouses or B&Bs. When in a big historical city tourists buy and study maps and tour guides of the city.
Today people have lots of good reasons to travel. Travelling has always been a part of people’s education. The best way to study geography is to travel and the best way to get to know the traditions and customs of different peoples is to speak to them. Besides, travelling is a good way to practise foreign languages.
It’s always interesting to discover new places and new ways of life, to try foreign food and to listen to unusual music. It's much better than sitting at home and doing nothing. When on a holiday tourists try different leisure activities such as sunbathing, scuba diving, swimming, windsurfing, rafting, hiking, climbing the mountains, shopping, buying souvenirs, going sightseeing, going on excursions, taking pictures, visiting museums and picture galleries, going to theatres, cinemas, discos and so on.
As for me, I’m fond of travelling. It’s both my hobby and favourite pastime.
