Travelling - Путешествие (5)

Modern life is impossible without travelling. Thousands of people travel every day either on bussines or for pleasure. They can travel by air, by rail, by see or by road. Travelling by air is the fastest and the most convinient way, but it is the most expensive too.

To my mind travelling by train is more interesting. You can see interesting places of the country you are travelling throught. Modern trains have very comfortable seats. There are also sleeping carriages and a dining-carrige which make even the longest journey enjoyable.

Travelling by sea is very popular. On board of ship you can enjoy your trip. There are tennis and badminton grounds, a swimming-pool, a sinema and a dancing hall there.

Some people prefer travelling by car. If you have your own car you may go to the Black Sea, where there are a lot of rest-houses, sanatoriums and tourist camps. In the daytime you can have a nice opportunity to play voleyball, swim in the warm water of the sea and sunbathe. In the evening you like to sit on the beach watching the sea and enjoying the sunset.

As for me I'm a hiker. I like to go on a hike to the mountains or to the forest. On my week-end I take a tent, a rucksack and go to railway station take the train. In an hour I find myself out of noisy city. The air is fresh, birds sing their merry songs... To make my long story short I'd like to say that travelling is one of my hobbies. Travelling helps me to know about customs and traditions of my country, to meet people and make friends with them.
