Travelling by plane is time-saving, exciting and very convenient in many ways. On the other hand, it can be very tiresome, boring and expensive, but not to my best friend, “Emmy Rose”, who often travels by plane. She loves to travel to many places, both for personal and professional reasons, whenever she gets the opportunity.
She is an established freelancer. So she can manage time and money to travel whenever she wants. She went to many European, African and Asian countries so far and whenever I see her, I feel like she had recently visited a new city or country. Every time she brings a souvenir for me from each of the places she visits, I know that she had flown by planes to a place unknown to me. I really wish I will be able to travel as extensively as she does now.
We studied in the same college for four years and since then we have become best friends. After graduation, I took a job at a private company and Emmy took “freelancing” as her career. So I had to stay very busy because of my heavy workload when she is a free bird. Sometimes I really envy her freedom to fly anywhere she wants and travel to places she likes.
Anyway, I reckon travelling as a recreational, educational and pleasant activity. Those who can afford to do so should not stay put and let go of that opportunity. So when I think of my best friend Emmy flying to a new and amazing place, I feel inspired. And I think that she frequently travels by plane because she wants to save time as much as she can in order to cover more places during her trip. Besides, since she has to travel to different places frequently, comfort also becomes an issue and travelling by plane undoubtedly offers the best comfort one could ever hope for.
