When it comes to travelling around the globe, either short distances or long ones, you have endless options in front of you in terms of how to get from A to B and back around again! Whereas once upon a time we used to be super-limited and everything used to take far too long, these days we are spoilt for choice, in more ways than one!
When you venture off on vacation, or off for business reasons, how do you normally travel? If you’re crossing long distances, this is probably by plane, but do you get to actually see anything that way? No! One of the best ways to see a destination is by using a land-based form of transportation. This is either bus, train, car, or motorcycle.
Road trips are one of the most iconic ways to see an area, and they are much easier to plan than you might think. For instance, you could try one of the many motorcycle tours on offer, and instead of being cooped up in a car, perhaps sweating in the heat, you could have the wind whipping around you, and the scenery literally within touching distance. Of course, if you prefer to hire a car, you have that option very easily accessible, but it’s definitely worth looking into the two wheeled option, just for a change!
Most countries around the world have well developed long distance bus options on hand too, and again, if you don’t mind sitting still for a few hours, this is a great way to really get a feel for the landscapes that are passing you by. Trains offer you a similar experience, although the timetable issue can be difficult in certain countries, and they can be more expensive than coaches – it’s a case of doing a little research ahead of time.
One way of travel will not suit another person, because how to get around this wonderful planet of ours is all down to personal preference. If you’re car sick, travelling by four wheels isn’t going to be for you; if you love the freedom of the open road, a motorcycle could be your option, and if you prefer to sit back and relax, looking out of the window, then it’s coach or train for you. On the other hand, if you want to get there quickly, it has to be plane.
This beautiful planet of ours has been made so much smaller, thanks to our endless travel options!
