why do you love travelling?

Post by RedRose » Sun Sep 19, 2004 10:27 am

most of chinese love travelling. as most people around world, we love travelling for many different sakes, for example, some people want know about the lifestyles of people from other place; some want to appreciate beautiful landscapes, some want to take a break from engaged work; some want to take a risk....

I love travelling as well. In general, I love travelling mostly because I want to live with other lifestyle for a while.

Routinely, I arrive at 8 o'clock, teach until twelve and then have a meal; then I arrive on school at 14 o'clock, teach until 17:30 and then return home, that is my routine everyday. Such a routine is kinda dull and mechanical. then what if I take a trip? oh, I will understand the lifestyles of other people on different places, and know about some interesting customs, that is great! it is equal to I live with other lifestyles of other people! and that will make my routines no more dull!

I love traveling, although I don't do it much... :cry:

Traveling abroad and knowing other cultures different than ours is really positive. It helps us open our minds and see there are so many different ways of understanding life, not just the one we have been taught.

I love travelling although the last time I went abroad was five years ago. It is an amazing experience, you learn new things every day about the living of other cultures and try to adapt.
Travelling is an experience you never forget.

And my reasons are the same as most EC members: travelling makes us open our minds, lets us get in touch with different cultures, meet wonderful people and look at beautiful places...

OK OK OK!

I want to travel too. I´d like to visit Spain, Italy, Hungary, Russia, India, Tibet, Canada, England and France, BUUUUUUUTTT

I don´t have money to do that. I suppossed you have the same problem, then "If I couldn´t go to the mountain, maybe the mountain could come to me".


I have a little apartment where I lived before my sister died and I had to return to my father home. That apartment is alone, with all my furnitures, I used to go there almost three times in a month in order to clean it. If you decide to visit México someday don´t worry for the Hotel, my apartment will be your Hotel and you will not to pay anything. I will be your tourist Guide. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

I like travelling because I am very curious of cultures. I like learning languages. :mrgreen:

I sometimes wondered this question. I thought that one factor can to be the fact that I don't and won't know my origin (I was born in India, adopted by Swiss people and won't know my origin). So a perpetual research. ;) [And if I was to go to India ?... :idea: ]

But I am glad to be curious, what a luck !

I love travelling because it's a way to meet new people and experience their culture and lifestyle. It also helps to learn a language or improve your language skills.

In fact, I've never been on a plane :oops: :oops: :oops:

Traveling by plane for the first time is scary and fun. Then it gets tedious. And the more you travel by plane, the more your mind wanders, especially on long flights. Now, for me, everytime I sit in a plane, I can't help but fear the tail of the plane will hit the runway during liftoff.

I've always thought that the first time I have the chance to fly, I'll get in the plane absolutely drunk :?

Of course I'm just kidding
