There are many reasons for travelling. Probably the most common reason is tourism. People have always been curious about far-away places and cultures and travelling is really the only way to experience these different environments. Travelling for tourism is not limited to any age group. Even small children can travel with their parents on a family vacation to see another city, another region, or even another country. If you travel abroad you must be sure you have all the necessary documents like a passport and a visa to travel to a specific country. You need to arrange tickets to travel to the foreign country. You will also need to exchange some money into the local currency of the country where you are travelling.

People also travel for other reasons. They might travel because of the requirements of their job. Sometimes business people and technicians must travel to conduct business or to attend training sessions. People might travel because they are moving, either by choice or because they are refugees. Another reason for travelling is to gather with family and friends from distant places.

There are many means of transportation that can be used while travelling. A person can go by car, bus, train, airplane, boat, motorcycle, bicycle, or they can even walk. Some people who don't have a car or a lot of money can try hitchhiking. If you are travelling to a distant place it is often necessary to travel by plane. When people are travelling they may carry different kinds of luggage depending on the kind of trip. If they are going on a long journey they might take a big suitcase or a duffel bag. If they are going on shorter trip they might carry a tote bag, a briefcase, a knapsack, or a small rucksack.

There are many advantages to travelling like fun, adventure, the excitement of seeing a new place, and learning about a new culture but there are also disadvantages. When you are travelling you don't have all your comforts from home, you are in an unfamiliar environment, you might not like the food that is available in a foreign country, or you might even meet dangerous people who would like to rob you. When you are travelling you must take extra precautions to be sure that you have a safe journey.
