Those lucky enough to travel, particularly those fortunate enough to visit foreign countries, face the decision of traveling in a group with an experienced tour guide or traveling by themselves. The choice is a difficult one as both ways of travel have advantages. Personally, I believe that, although traveling in a group with a tour guide is obviously convenient, the benefits are often not significant enough and in many ways traveling in this kind of way can limit one's travel experience.
The conveniences of group travel with a tour guide include the fact that one easily meets other people and thus has a more enjoyable and comfortable travel experience. This is particularly important when traveling in a foreign country where a language barrier prevents interaction with the locals and isolation can become a problem. The tour guide is often experienced in generating a jovial atmosphere within the group, and his/her knowledge of the foreign culture and places of interest provide travelers with a greater appreciation of their trip. Also, and maybe most importantly, when traveling with a guide the individual traveler normally does not have to worry about hotel reservations and transportation. Those aspects are taken care of.
On the other hand, convenience might not be important to a traveler, and traveling alone allows far more personal freedoms. For example, one can easily make changes to the travel itinerary. The traveler can choose to stay in certain places or move on more quickly than otherwise possible, because he does not follow a set schedule.
Learning about culture and places of interest is also easy as that information is readily available in books.
Furthermore, travelers tend to congregate, and it is very easy to meet fellow vacationers who might have insightful tips as far as where to go and what to do. Generally, basic command of the English language suffices to have such informative exchanges with other travelers and locals, who are often eager to share their customs and culture.
Therefore, traveling outside a large tour group can result in a richer and more genuine experience, and I believe this experience to be more exciting to me.
Traveling is a very pleasant thing. Some people like to travel with several friends. Other people, however, would prefer to travel alone. Each way has its advantages. As far as I am concerned, traveling with my friends is my choice.
Why do some people like to travel just himself or herself? For one thing, they have more freedom. They do not need to discuss the routine with others. What he or she wants to go, just go. For another, they can have more relax. They do not need to keep an eye on how to get along with friends.
Although there may be one or more advantages to traveling alone, I insist that traveling with friends far overweigh them. In the first place, you can make the trip easy.Traveling is not a very easy activity. For example, you need to find transportation tools, hotel and restaurant in strange places. Several friends can average these tasks so that such things will not bother every one much and enjoy the journey more.
In the second place, you can get help when you need. There will be many unexpected surprising thing during the journey. Such as, get lost, be sick, cannot wake up early for the morning flight. It is very tough for people to handle these situations by themselves especially when they travel to a strange place. Friends can give you a hand to overcome all these difficulties. As a Chinese slang says, "every one needs the help from others."
In addition, you can have more fun. Enjoying the scene spots is wonderful, while traveling on the road is boring. How to spend this boring time? Talking with friends, playing cards will help you out.
In conclusion, I prefer to travel with friends rather than travel alone not only because the trip will be easier with friends, but also because more help and fun will be got from friends.
1.Advantage of Travelling Around the World
Most people travel as part of their daily routine, not only because it is enjoyable but also because it has a lot to offer. Are you familiar with the saying, "The world is a book; those who do not travel read only a page"?
There are lots of places to explore in the world. Your travel doesn't have to be limited to where you live or what you read in a book, there are lots of exciting places to experience in the real world. Travelling is worth every penny you will spend because memories last forever.
There are many advantages to travelling around the world. Here are a few to think about:
2.You will enjoy the Adventure
The reason why many people travel is because they love an adventure. There are several different types of adventures to choose from when you travel. An example of this is travelling to different beaches; some people enjoy diving while others prefer surfing.
Wherever you will go, you will make memories of your adventure which will last a lifetime. You can relive the enjoyment again and again as you look back on the great adventure you had when travelling.
3.You get to know different People and Places
The world contains lots of countries and not all people are the same. When travelling, you get the opportunity to meet different people from different places. In life, one of the most important social skills we learn is how to interact and communicate with people who are different than we are.
All people have their own way of communicating, and not all ways are effective. Some people tend to have problems expressing themselves because their social abilities are not developed. Travelling and interacting with a variety of people can help build or improve social skills with very little effort.
Not only does travelling improve communication skills, it can actually boost self-confidence, since ideas and opinions are able to be more clearly expressed, shared and understood.
4.Getting accustomed to different cultures
Different cultures exist everywhere. As a traveler, it's your duty to respect the culture of the people you visit. Some places have more modern cultures while others have traditional beliefs and customs.
Experiencing different cultures can also be enlightening and educational; many travelers look for places to visit whose cultures are different from their own. Learning about other's lives and customs deepens our understanding of ourselves and of our world. It teaches us respect and is humbling in many cases.
Learning the culture of different peoples can reveal how people see themselves in a group. Culture may be defined as a total way of life, created by a group of people. It is then passed down from one generation to the next.
5.You tend to see different places that you haven't seen before
For many people, the main reason for travelling is to see the world. Travelling can be a dream come true! It allows you to have adventures in new places and see things you never thought possible.
Stress is a natural part of life; in fact it helps us to survive! But when we have too much stress in our lives, it can be dangerous to our health. Many things bring about stress: work, family, relationships, change in health. Even positive change brings on stress.
There are lots of activities that can help reduce stress and tension. One way to reduce stress and anxiety is by relaxing or by doing activities you enjoy. Travelling can bring joy to life, especially in stressful times. It can be one of the best ways to remove stress, reduce tension and restore balance.
