Almost all people are fond of travelling. It is very interesting to see new places, another towns and countries. People may travel either for pleasure or on business. There are various methods of travelling.
For me there is nothing like travel by air; it is more comfortable, more convenient and, of course, far quicker than any other method. There is none of the dust and dirt of a railway or car journey, none of the trouble of changing from train to steamer and then to another train.
With a train you have speed, comfort and pleasure combined. From the comfortable seat of a railway carriage you have a splendid view of the whole country-side. If you are hungry, you can have a meal in the dining-car; and if a journey is a long one you can have a wonderful bed in a sleeper.
Travelling by ship is also very popular now. It is very pleasant to feel the deck of the ship under the feet, to see the rise and fall of the waves, to feel the fresh sea wind blowing in the face and hear the cry of the seagulls.
The journey by bus very popular. It is convenient to travel from city to city and from country to country. In the journey you can admire the endless landscape and at the same time comfortable to relax. It is also nice to have a guide who will tell you about interesting new places.
Many people like to traveling by car. It is interesting too, because you can see many filings in a short time, you can stop when and where you like, you do not have to buy tickets or carry your suitcases.
As for me, I like travelling on foot. Its often called hiking. There are many advantages of travelling on foot. First of all, its very good for your health. You move a lot. Secondly, you can stay in some place for a very long tine.
Couchsurfing was created in order to make world tourism more popular, convenient and cheap.
Couchsurfing is a global community of 7 million people in more than cities all over the world. Each of them can invite another person from community to visit his homeplace, native city or be invited somewhere, for example to visit boarding country. It is really interesting.
History Couchsurfing has began in 2004 as a small project by founders Casey Fenton, Daniel Hoffer, Sebastian Le Tuan and Leonardo Bassani da Silveira. This group of students in Iceland had the idea, that people anywhere would want to share their homes with strangers (or, as they like to call them, friends you met yet ).
People can use this programme only if they are under 18 years old. Most of the users are the students - young, energetic people. At the free time couchsurfers exchange the information and photos, communicate with each other and compare notes after their last traveling.
