When we decide to travel we have several choices, train, bus,plane or ship. To travel by bus is a good way to enjoy the journey as then one can get to see the country side and also stop at certain places which if traveling in train or airplane you would not stop at. Traveling by bus is especially convenient when you have to travel at not much long distances and also when there is no seat in the train or in the planes. Maximum number of times the tickets for a bus travel is easily available as there are so many buses from the same departure place for the desired destination. What about your choice?

I hardly ever travel by bus and I think a lot of people don't anymore with plane and trains, and such. It's not the fastest but I think it's the easiest, least expensive and most continent way to go where you want to go. I'm going to try to take a but trip somewhere fun this year and make a habit of it.

I travel by bus when there isn't a train available. Then I enjoy looking out of the window in the daytime at the passing scenery. I prefer to travel by train and then I can sit in a comfortable seat with plenty of legroom. I like to travel overnight on trains and sleep in a comfortable compartment. I would love to take the train from Moscow all the way to Beijing. It would take the best part of one week. I know it would be really enjoyable. By comparison I find a whole day or a whole night on a bus enough. I have to fly on a plane when I go to a far away destination. I flew from London to Cape Town last year. Whilst I was there I traveled on local trains, local buses, a coach and a backpackers bus. I get sea sick on rough voyages. I am happy to sail for a whole day or a whole night. Yes, bus travel is widely available and a train line is sometimes provided.

I haven't traveled by bus since I was in high school. My church's favorite way for us to travel was on bus. It was fun in high school, because we drove all the way to Florida and Arizona. We would stop lots of different interesting places and it really was a road trip. It's harder now to travel this way. Now I seem to just want to get to my destination.
