Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. I didn’t traveled to other countries in my hole life, but I think that travel must be great, and I wish to travel around the world someday, exactly to countries like Japan, USA, Egipt, Italy, France and maybe New Zealand. If someday I’ll travel, I take with me money, clothes, my mobile phone and a good camera. Also I want to visit all Spain. If I travel I would like to take my family or maybe 1 or 2 friends to make me some company and don't travel alone

  2. If I had a lot of money, I would travel all around the world. I had tarvalled to a lot of places in Spain, but not too many out of it.

    I had never been to England, but I'll love to go there one day. I would also like to travel to other interesting places out of Spain like China or New York.

    I thing travelling is important beacuse you have to learn other cultures and meet other people from other countries, but what I like most is eating food from diferent places. Chineese food is my favourite because it's usaually savory and sometimes spicy. I think that New York food is really bad because most of it is yunk food and I don't really like it.

    But what I think that's the most important thing is speaking diferent languajes specially english, because is the most spoken languaje in all over the world. If you also speak other languajes you'll be a lot more comfortable in a country wich isn't yours.

    In fact, I would like to travel all around the world because I love to learn new cultures and I love eating! I also love to speak English and other languajes.

  5. Traveling around the world is a thing I've always had in my to do list. For me, getting out of your own country is necessary. Not just to have fun, which is something you will do for sure, but also to learn and to have tons of new experiences.

    I have travelled to a lot of different spots of Spain, that even if it´s my own country it is worth to visit it because its just beautiful .Moreover I have been in some countries such as France and Ireland multiple times because I have to admit that I fell in love with those places and I will never get sick of them so I'm sure I will go back again.

    In my desire of traveling the world some of the destinations that head the list are the Alps, the Grand Canyon ,Thailand, Hawaii, Japan and the Black Forest . I have never been outside of Europe and I wish I could go to those interesting places someday.

    To sum up, traveling is amazing and for doing so it´s important who you go with besides of the location. For me traveling with my close friends, my sister or my family is what makes it unforgettable.

  6. To travel of the world is fantastic, but you have got to know when to travel. Some countries are dangerous while the others countries are safe how Europeans countries. You can travel to Italy, France, Germany or UK.

  7. I would not travel all over the world because I do not like it very much, but what I would most like is to visit my grandparents in my country. I would go with all my family but I can't but my parents say that I will visit them when I grow up. But the only country I would go to is Itali because many ancient monuments, I hope I can go one day.

  8. In my life I only have travelled 2 times to other countries (France and Deutschland), both with my father. We go to buy cars for fix it and resell it here in Spain. Ina not so far future I want to go to a lot of countries like USA, Canada, Netherlands...
    In this trips I only wanna take my bike, a backpack with money, clothes and food and my mobile phone. I would go with my friends and in this trips when we`ll arrive in the airport we would assemble our bikes and we go to any city and ride in the city or in the countryside, in the nights we`ll take rooms in any hostal and in the next morning go to other city with the bikes doing a kind of roadtrip.
    With this kind of trips is the manner with my friends and I like to travel around the world. I hope any day in the future I can go with my friends to do this trips.

  9. Travel around the world is very interesting. I like travel because is emotion and I like travel at countries how UK, EE.UU, France. Also visit museum and monuments of world.

  10. To begin with, I have confessed that I haven't been to other countries yet, but in the future, If I had money, I would like to travel around the world like Willy Fog and Passepartout. In addition, next year I will be visiting my sister in Brighton.

    Travelling is very important because we learn from other cultures. And the most important, nowadays, we learn other languages. English is the most important language in the world, though.

    I’d like to go to the United States, especially to cities like New York to see the Statue of Liberty. Or to Washington, D.C. to see The White House. Also, I want to go to Canada or the United Kingdom.

    Obviously, we need money to travel but the most crucial is to have friends to share the experience and rises.

  11. Travelling is very important for me because it allows you to discover many different cultures, like the Asian one or the aboriginal one.

    I haven't travelled many times, but I have been to Portugal once and I can say that it was amazing. I have also travelled to different places here in Spain, like Cazorla, Madrid or Marbella.

    For me an important thing when you are travelling, specially when you go abroad, is that you should know the language that people spoke in the City or country you are visiting. I know that if you speak English almost everyone can understand you, but if you for example go to Italy and you can speak Italian, it will be easier for Italians to understand you and you would be able to read and understand everything, so you could enjoy more the trip.

    If I could travel everywhere, I would like to visit all the european countries, specially The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. I also would like to visit Russia because I think that its culture, monuments and language are very interesting. I'd like to see all the most famous monuments and see some festivals like the Festival di Sanremo in Italy or visit Pushkin theatre in Russia.

    In this kind of trips I would go with my friends because my mother isn't keen on travelling. My father was keen on travelling and visiting new countries, so I am sure I will have a photograph of him if I go abroad.

  12. I have never travelled to another country in my whole life, but I think that travelling must be fantastic because it can help you, for example,to relax, to forget all the problems of the day by day. You can also learn about other cultures like the Asian culture.

    As I have just written, I haven´t been to any other country, and I think that is for this reason that I don´t like travelling at all. I think that it must be very tiring, and you need a lot of money. Besides you need to be able to speak other languages, at least you must be able to speak English because it is the most recognised lenguage in the world. However, it is not the most spoken language

    In the future I will go to some countries, but the country that I would most like to go is Japan, because I think that they have a very interesting culture and some landscapes are very beautiful. As well, I would visit some Japanese cities like Okinawa, Kyoto and Akihabara.

    I don´t have an opinion about all these issues because I have never travelled in my life, but in the future I want to travel more.

  13. Travelling is important to me, because is one oprtunity of discover many different cultures, the costumbres of different places, the life of this place...

    For me an important thing when you are travelling, specially when you go abroad, is that you should know the language that people spoke in the City or country you are visiting. I know that if you speak English almost everyone can understand you.

    I like three types of travels, the first is the travels where you go to one hotels and you go to stay good and relax, the second that I like other type of travels that is to go to see different places and enblematics places, and finally I like the Travels where you go to other country.

    The travel that more I like in my live is the travel that my school do to York, England that stayed very good, because we saw different enblematics places and I have the oportunity to practice my english with the person of there, and with the family of the house where I stayed.

    I think that travel is one things that must to do everypeople one time in his life.

  14. I like so much travelling, but in my age I can't go to other place on a trip because I'm teenager and I don't have enough money and I don't have so much responsability to go to another place on my own.

    My last trip was in York, England. It was very good, I did some friends in the university where I went and I talked so much with the family that took me to their home. When I was some days in England I started to acostrumbate myself to speak english and take a habit that was:
    Go to the university, do the activities in the evening, and later, at night, I went to home and talk with the family in the dinner, and then, talk with my mun in my room.
    To sum up, I learn and practise much english in this period of time, defenitly it was my best trip.

    In a future, I want to travel around the world and I hope that I will go to all the places over the world, and later, talk about my experiences to my sons and my family.
    I hope that this dream come true..

  16. Nowadays, travelling is something very important for anybody, and we can do it in many ways. It is important because if we go to other places, surely we are going to learn many interesting things from languages up to new cultures.

    There are many different ways to travel, because there are people who like most go on an adventure, without a travel plan, only with the passage to go and to return. In these trips, they usually go with a backpack that have only what's needed, some clothes, and things that they would need in an emergency. Sleeping in luxury hotels is not so important for them, because they travel without hotel bookings. The most important thing is get the most out of the trip and have quite an experience. Instead of this, there people who like going to a place with a scheduled trip, because they pay once, and they have all organized.

    Aside from that, we can find more ways to travel and many different types of trips.There are people who prefer a place to relax. They go where they will can be without stressful and boring activities . Many people spend her summer holidays in cities that have beaches, places like paradise islands.But there are also people who prefer the rural landscape, so going to the mountain and have a more rural trip is the chosen proposal. Besides, places like New York, or Tokyo, are also highly visited, because they prefer visiting important cities.

    To sum up, there are different moments to do each trip. It all depends on the company, the time of year, our age, our situation… So I think that all ways of travelling are all just as interesting and fun. In my opinion, all people should travel because if we travel, we learn new things, and we will not forget our experiences.

  17. The first time I went abroad was in 2016. I was studying the 6th year of primary school. I went to Wales, because my sister was living in Cardiff. When I visited the city, people were celebrating St. David's Day. We could see a parade and there were a lot of flags with dragons.

    My sister showed me her house and the university. I liked the city centre very much. We visited the Cardiff Castle too and we took a lot of photos. The Bute Park was like a big garden where you could ride a bike, run and play rugby and tennis.

    I was surprised when we went to the museum and we didn't have to pay for any tickets. Museums in the UK are free. What a good idea! We spent 5 fantastic days. I would like to go again in the future and speak English!

  18. If I could do one thing in my life it would be travelling around the world. I was going to travel to Germany but the covid-19 was extended around all of world and the travel was cancelled. If I currently could go to the other site I would go to the my mansión in the Greek island property of my great grandfather. Among the things that I would take, it would be clothes and my ps4 because the house is very big and it has a lot of things for example a big garden with one basketball court one a small corral with horse, free range hens, rabbits among others. I would take a my family and my grand father so I can go into the house. I also would take a small group of friends until filing the rooms. We could spend a great time and my friends would have great memories of a fantastic trip.

  19. I like travel because I know new cities, monuments, foods, traditions, etc. I have never left Spain. The country who I love is United States, because I love english, and I love this country too. Is my perfect travel. I hope to go to this country with my cousin, because, we love a singer (Dove Cameron) that comes in a movie: Descendants.

  21. Travelling isn’t the most important thing for me , but I think it’s interesting to know other cultures, customs , monuments,... I’ve only been to Madrid, last year. I went on a study trip with my classmates. It was good fun.
    My parents don’t like travelling, so I don’t go anywhere. I hope to travel and visit many places when I’m older.

  22. I love travelling. And if I could, I would travel all over the world. I like travelling to learn about new countries, cultures, people … Besides, if I travelled more, I would have more experiences and I would learn more languages. Do you like to travel as much as me?

    On the one hand, I can’t travel as much as I would like for many reasons. Among my reasons, my parents work a lot and they don't have time to travel and I must travel with them because I am still very young to travel alone. In addition, even if we had a long time, you wouldn't be able to travel so often because this costs a lot of money.

    On the other hand, If I could travel wherever I wanted, I would live in some places like New York, London, Japan, Rome or Venice. Although the truth is that I would go anywhere because they are all different and I would learn different things but I prefer travelling outside Spain because I have never been abroad.

    To sum up, I think that travelling anywhere, even in my country, is incredible. However, I like travelling but I don't like travelling alone because I think that is very boring. Therefore, I usually travel with my family and in the future I would like to travel with my friends although I am still young to do it.

  23. I traveled once when I was a baby to Mayorca but I do not remember so it is as if I had not traveled and outside of Spain either.
    Ami I would like to go to Italy and Greece for the monuments and Mexico for the day of the dead, I would love to see that holiday.
    In my opinion, I think it is good to travel because apart from learning other cultures and the histories of that country, they are also days to relax.
    I would like to go with my family and stay for a week but we cannot because we have to study and in summer my parents work but I hope that in the future I can go.
