    Travelling is an experience that can be different depending the company you are with.
    For example if you travel with your family it will be not the same as if you are with a friend.
    So,it will be difficult, to go out for a drink or to go in some disco club with your mom,vice versa your friend never won’t ask you if you are tired or if you prefer to take a photo with him to deliver to all relatives.
    Have you ever think to sleep with your parents in a hostel?I’m sure is not an experience simply to do, in this case your friend will accomodate in any type of solution, I also think your dad will prefer a good hotel and a very comfortable bed.
    At the end I think that the idea of a travel will you appreciate qualities and defects of both situations,the only important thing is enjoy the travel and discover new places,your enthusiasm will be contagious; not to forget that a travel is full of remeber and it will consolidate the relationships.

      ? Good work Claudio.

      Some corrections:

      – Depending ON
      – to go TO a club
      – Have you ever thought about sleeping with…
      – At the end of THE DAY (expression)
      – The only important thing is TO enjoy
      – a TRIP (not a travel)

    Traveling is an experience that lets us visit different sites and know different cultures and costumes.
    Depending on the place you visit you could do different activities, for instance, when I travel to a city in the highlands of my country, I like to visit the archeological sites, the museum, as well as eating the typical food and know the different costumes people have there.
    If I travel by myself, I stay in a hostel because I like to meet new people and talk to them about their families and trips. That is during the day but at night I like to go out to see the stars in the sky and to breathe pure air. On the other hand, if I travel to the beach I like to stay in a hotel near the seashore, jog along the shore, sunbathe and swim in the ocean for a long time.
    What happens if I travel with my family? Well, in that case, the organization of activities is different, we stay in a hotel because it is more comfortable and they can supply all your necessities and if you have any urgency they can help you better than in a hostel and we can also prepare several group activities such as playing volleyball or making sandcastles.
    In the end, the idea when people travel is to have fun, relax, know new sites, meet new people and share time with others, that means with your family or with people you have just known.

    Travelling is something that everyone wants to do. In fact, there is a noun called “Wanderlust” which means a strong desire to travel around the world. But, it would be better travel with friends or relatives?

    Most of the people who travel frequently are young people as they have more energy. Due to this, they prefer physical activities like sandboarding, mountain cycling and go for adventures. When it comes to family, as the age difference may be notorious, it could be quite complicated decide which activity do, one may want only go for tour whereas the youngest one wants to go surfing.

    Young adults probably cannot afford an expensive hotel which has a lot of commodities, so just backpacking is a great option for them while in families as the oldest members want comfort they are willing to pay the necessary to ensure a great holiday.

    Travelling alone must be considered as a challenge. By travelling on your own you could improve your independence, your social skills also, as it depends on you if you want to meet new people. Therefore, you could learn how to set your budget and how to survive in an unknown country.

    To sum up, Travelling with friends is the best option, as between them there is more understanding of their needs and hobbies. Undoubtedly, with them, you could have a greater experience.

    -* It would be great if you could score my writing 0 / 20

    If someone asked me: “What is the gift you desire most for your birthday?”, well, I would have no doubts: a ticket to travel. The reason of my answer is pretty simple to understand for most of the people who have travelled at least once in their life: travelling gives you the chance to do something that is not ordinary or that you do not normally do in your daily-routine. Visiting museums, talking with strangers, speaking (or trying to speak) a different language, eating typical food of the place are all activities that people are not used to do because they are too busy.
    When I travel I also like to go clubbing: it is fun to see how much is different the way the people of the place dance and also the kind of music they listen to.
    I must say that I am not fussy about the accommodation. In my opinion the best recipe of a good trip is: good friends and having experiences. The rest is not important: an hotel is as good as an hostel to me. We do not live to be lazy: if staying in a hotel is a priority, you should stay home!
    One of the things I like most about travelling is surely the fact that I really feel like I could be everyone I want: except the people you travel with, no one knows you. You can smile with no reason, dance in a crowded square, talk with strangers and you will not receive any kind of judgment. I suppose that I feel like this also because I have travelled more with my friends than with my parents.
    I can not even image my mom and dad watching me doing these kind of things. That is because I image that I would not feel very comfortable with them. The main obstacle is their age: they would never go clubbing with me for example. But probably they would never do most of the activities that I like when I visit a place.
    So, if I have to choose between family and friends, I choose friends.

    Traveling abroad is always a really good experience to me. Even if I travel with my girlfriend, family or friends, it’s always a great experience because at the end I know I’ve learned with that and I lived things that no one can take it from me.
    Sometimes we have to face difficult moments in the trip, but I believe these moments enrich our souls and sometimes make us a better person somehow.
    When I travel abroad or through my country, I enjoy myself doing local things such as going to places known only by local people, or go to the market and compare prices from where I live. For me, all these small things are unique and amazing.
    Exploring this new place by bicycle or by walking is always a good idea, because when you are in a vehicle you might miss something really amazing. Exploring by walking we can pay attention in the details and we’re able to stop and enjoy the place you are.
    Learn more about local culture is something we really should do, because these kind of things we can take with us forever and make us smarter than before, because we have more things to discuss and share with people around us.
    Making travels for me is the thing a like the most, because it make possible to come back to home with new ideas to improve where I live and making people lives better.
