One of the best things about moving to a new place is that you can travel to new places that you might never have thought to visit. I am not referring to little trips that are a short metro or car ride away, but rather longer more planned out trips. Where ever you live there are many options to travel to new and exciting places. If you moved to America you can see a number of different things just in the country because it is so big; or if you move to any country in Europe it is extremely easy, and relatively cheap, to travel to any number of countries. If you want to get to your location quick the obvious option is to take an airplane. Airlines can be expensive, but it is the easiest way to get anywhere that is a few hours away. There are a number of budget airlines that can make the trip less expensive, the most famous of these in Europe is Easyjet ( However, there are a number to choose from. Trains and buses are cheaper and take a lot longer, but if you have the extra time, sometimes trains are the best way to go. They offer comfort and give you a great view of the scenery, not to mention are usually more roomy then normal planes. Buses are by far the cheapest, longest, and most uncomfortable option, but if you need to save some money that is your best bet. Searching online is the quickest and easiest way to find out all your options and usually the city you want to go will recommend options for you.

Being in England there are loads of options on where to go and how to get there. You can see the big cities in the country like London or Manchester by bus,  take a ferry to the Netherlands, train to Paris, or a flight to Italy, All of these options are pretty cheap and all have there ups and downs. The bus, although cheap, takes a very long time and is extremely uncomfortable. You do; however, get to see some nice things along the way and have the opportunity to get off the bus and stretch your legs. Taking a ferry is a great experience, but make sure you are not easily seasick. It does rock a lot and if you don’t really have much experience on the water go with some seasick pills. It’s an overnight trip, but really is a fun way to travel. Taking the train anywhere is another great experience in my opinion. Some of my best trips throughout Europe have been on trains. Trains are offered both just for day trips and some come with cots for overnight trips. They are usually pretty comfortable and give passengers the reassurance that they are on the ground not thousands of feet in the air. However, some can be very pricey, and some just take way to long. Finally, planes are the quickest and easiest way to travel. The upside with planes is you get to your destination fast and you usually don’t have to worry about your luggage. The downside with planes is they can be pricey, you have to go to the airport early, and a lot of people  have a fear of flying. I enjoyed the train, but when I needed to get somewhere planes were the way to go. All of these options leave no excuse why you shouldn’t explore the places around your new home.
