I prefer traveling by car, and getting to interact with the locals. Hiking also helps you take in the scenery.

Travelling by plane is my favorite.

I don't have a favorite because I don't think that I really like to travel. I just like to arrive lol. For that reason, I'd choose the plane and fancy hotel just for convenience.

I haven't done it recently but I love train travel. You can work, read, nap or watch the miles go by.
Interested in books that help one's spirit move beyond the ordinary.

I prefer to fly by plane and stay at fancy hotels because I enjoy it. I like the feeling of luxury the high end Hotels manage to create.
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

I feel good when i am travelling by road because if there was anything to see i have a chance to ask for a reverse to check it out again. By air is also nice but sometimes you can miss out due to the fact that you in the air and can only see down not really visible what you are seeing.

After a rough flight, I recently became less of a fan of flying. But I love taking cruises! You are traveling in your hotel so you always have a place to come back to and the food is always really good! I also like road trips with friends or family.

I really like to go places by boat. When you get into a port, you are already on your floating home!

I've really only travelled by car, but I do like how it gives me time to think and, when I'm not the one driving, I get to look at the scenery! It's obviously better when the scenery is pretty. :)

I drove across the US several years ago--stayed with family most of the way, couch surfed once, and stayed in a hotel once. It was stressful and tiring, but there were some really amazing parts to it. I love the diverse landscape of the US. I loved watching the temperate forests I grew up in turn to fields, then desert, then mountains (I could have done without the endless ocean of GMO corn, though. That just made me sad.)

One morning we had to hit the road as early as possible, because we had to beat a storm through a mountain pass. It was like being on the Oregon Trail.

I like nature and privacy more than fancy and popular locations, for the mental peace that they bring.

I prefer traveling in a vehicle to walking because by walking it is obvious that you'll travel a shorter distance.
