A Every day hundreds of people travel from one place to another for fun or from necessity. They travel to work, to school, on business, to visit friends or to go shopping. For many people travelling is one of the most popular hobbies. Travelling is also an interesting way of spending holidays. In every season of the year airports, railway stations, seaports and bus stops are full of people travelling for long or short distances. You should organize your holiday. You should have enough money for travelling. Travel agencies will orgnize everything for you. They secure accommodation and transport for a good price. Travel agencies offer last minute tours, which are cheaper. You can arrange your holiday by the Internet, where you can book a room in a hotel or find information about your destination. People are often nervous before holidays, because they have to leave their home and travel to unknown places. And when they arrive at their destination, they enjoy free time and they adapt easier. After holiday they are depressed, because they have to work again and live normal life. Journey preparation can be a problem too, because for many people it’s very stressful. Some people don’t know how to pack only important things. Mainly women pack almost everything from their wardrobe and then they miss really important things, which didn’t fit in their luggage. I forget my comb and toothpaste very often.
