The scientific and technological progress

The scientific and technological progress of the 20-th century has allowed people to overcome time and distance, to cover in the twinkle of an eye the vast expanse of our planet. The whole world is open now. The limits and frontiers of the previous period have stopped to exist. We can choose any place on the planet and go there on business or for holiday. We can go to the place of our destination by sea, by air.

We can travel by train. If you want to get somewhere as quickly as possible the best way is to travel by plane. It is better to book tickets in advance. On the appointed day you go to the airport by car. Soon you'll board the big air-liner and it will carry you to new lands. When on the plane you may look about. In front of you in the cockpit you'll see a pilot and his crew. Some of the passengers are reclining in comfortable armchairs. There is a kitchenette in the rear part of the plane where the stewardesses are cooking. Presently we take off and in a few minutes the voice informs us about the altitude we are flying.

Sometimes it is possible to see the land. It is like a geographical map. Our plane is due to arrive in eight hours. Time passes quickly. The plane arrives at the airport in time. There are other ways of travelling. If you are an adventurer you can travel by hitch-hiking, bicycles, on horseback. Coach tours are not expensive and I like them very much. They are planned as holidays and there is a chance to do a lot of sightseeings and have a good rest at the same time. Last year I went by coach through a few countries and enjoyed the tour very much.

During the ten-day holiday we visited Hungary, Slovenia and Italy. Sightseeing was combined with rest. For a few days we stayed at some lovely small hotels. There was no trouble with the luggage because it was taken care of at every night stop. Moreover hotels were carefully selected and booked in advance.

People began to travel ages ago. The very first travellers were explorers who went on trips to find wealth, fame or something else. Their journeys were very dangerous but still people keep on going to the unknown lands. Nowadays there are a lot of companies, which can organize your tour, or voyage wherever you like. They will take care about your tickets and make all the reservations needed. If you don’t speak the language of the country you’ll be given interpreters. With modern services you can go around the world you can choose the means of transport you like: plain, train, ship, bicycle or you can travel hiking. As for me I like travelling by car. It is a very convement type because you can stop wherever and whenever you like, have a better look at the places of interest and nature. Besides you need’t reserve tour tickets, carry heavy suitcase.

Every year my parents and I go to the South for holidays. The Black Sea is one of the most wonderful places which attracts holiday-makers all over the world. There are many rest-homes, sanatoriums and tourist camps there. But it is also possible to rent a room or a furnished house for a couple of weeks there. As a rule I make new friends there. In the day-time we play volleyball, tennis, swim in the warm water of the sea and sunbathe. In the evening I like to sit on the beach watching the sea and enjoying the sunset. But the greatest dream of my life is to go to the States and see most of its cities and sights. And of course study there at the prestigious university for some time.
