Means of transport
You can travel:
on foot - the cheapest kind of travelling, healthy, keeps you fit, improves your condition, you can get everywhere, slow, for short distances, dangerous when you are alone, getting tired
by bike - cheap, healthy, good for environment, you´re spending your own energy, you can get everywhere, stop where you want, slow, very dangerous, problems with luggage
by car - fast, comfortable, you can get everywhere, enough space for luggage, quite expensive, you need a driving licence, dangerous, air pollution, bad roads, getting into a traffic jam
by bus - quite fast, reliable, you can watch TV or video, listen to radio, possibility of buying refreshment, you can get to every village,
buses are crowded, careless drivers, dangerous in some places, uncomfortable – lack of space, usually there isn´t a toilet in a bus, no privacy
by train - quite fast, cheap, less polluting, safe, more comfortable - more space, more privacy, sleeping and dining cars, toilets (but they´re dirty), dirty, can’t get everywhere
by plane – for long distances, fast, comfortable, refreshment, less dangerous, expensive
on ship - slow, only at the places where is the water, cheap, not so dangerous, seasickness
hitchhiking - very cheap and dangerous
commuting - by bus/tram (only 8 towns in our country have tram links)/underground (only in Prague, the oldest underground - in London since 1863)/trolleybus (12 towns have trolleybus links)/double-decker/taxi
Necessary documents and things you need - valid passport, visa, international health card, we must change money, take an insurance, phone number of an embassy, veterinary certificate for our pet, vaccination certificate
You have two possibilities - you can go with travel agency or you can go alone - arrange your own holiday. With travel agency - package holiday – everything is done for you, you need only money, because the travel agency cares about everything - accommodation, guide, visa (they contact an embassy in Prague), transport, health insurance, accident insurance. But it could be sometimes very dangerous because the travel agency may bankrupt, you can stay in a foreign country without help. In this case you have to go to our embassy and ask for help. Or it could happen, that you pay for comfortable holiday and you get terrible accommodation without bath, air-conditioning, …
But it has a lot of advantages - you have special program, you can do a lot of trips with a tour guide and get more information about the town, habits, ...
Own holiday - you have to care about everything – an insurance, a map, book the accommodation, full or half board, tickets or you can travel with your own car. But on the other hand you can do everything what you want and you are independent of other people.
For us, holidays mean time when we don´t go to work or school. We look forward to this time in anticipation. This is the right time to fulfil our dreams and ideas. We can travel round the world or our holidays may be cultural, educational, working, romantic, or exotic.
People have different expectations of their holidays. Some want only to lie by the water and sunbathe. Others practically don´t leave their house, sitting by the television, go out to have dinner, read newspapers and again sit down in front of TV. Some people spend their holiday doing sports, hiking or travelling. That way they improve their minds as well as their bodies. A lot of people like hiking. They walk throughout the forest, sleep outside and enjoy the beauties of nature.
Buses or cars aren’t very friendly to the environment because of gasses in the atmosphere, which cause green house effect. And we can’t forget the catastrophes in the oceans. Time to time we hear about oil tankers, which wrecked. Plane has one big disadvantage. It uses up so much air as a normal person for all life. There are many accidents in the streets especially in bad weather. In our country the streets and highways aren’t very good, but we don´t have money to repair them. The floods did a lot of damages too. My travelling
I like travelling. It´s interesting to see new countries, new places, new people, .. I also like travelling round our country.
