How do you like to travel?

My absolute favorite way to travel is by cruise ship. Talk about only having to pack and unpack once for the trip, and having most everything paid for ahead of time with lots of dining choices at any time of day. I would live on a cruise ship and I wanted to work on one, but I decided that having a husband and staying home was a lot better for me. How do you like to travel?

My favorite way to travel is by train because it is so enjoyable and comfortable. In the day time I can sit in a seat with lots of legroom. During the night time I can sleep in a bunk in a compartment and sleep really soundly. I am happy on a train journey of hours or days. I dream that one day I might be able to travel on the train that goes all the way from Moscow to Beijing. I have traveled in Europe, America, Kenya, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand on trains. I tend to fly on a plane if I go to a long haul destination. When I arrive I like to travel around by train and if that isn't available bus. I wouldn't like to go on a cruise ship because it would mean I would only have a day in each port destination. Cruise ship trips tend to be very expensive. When I was in Cape Town I met some members of a group that was cruising around the world. That trip must have cost loads.

We actually tried a cruise ship this year. Not the one that goes on for several days. We just tried an overnight repositiong cruise, just in case we didn't like it. Oh how we love it! I also like that everything is already paid for. And that there are lots of dining and entertaining choices. It seemed like our stay on the boat was very short. We would definitely try for a longer one next time.
