Comment on the following statement:
|Young people like travelling more than senior citizens.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that young people like travelling more than senior citizens whereas others say that it’s not true.
I think that young people really like travelling. First of all, they are usually eager to see other countries, learn something new and socialize with foreigners. It’s in their blood. Secondly, they have their lives ahead of them and have a lot of expectations. The young have also a lot of energy and like to be explorers, probably more than seniors do.
At the same time there are people who think that seniors like traveling more. They have all they need for it: time, desire and money.
In my opinion desire is more important than possibilities. As people get old they begin to lack this important ingredient. They tend to want to stay in their familiar environment, or sometimes traveling becomes hard for them for health reasons. There’re exceptions, though.
In conclusion I’d like to say that traveling brings a lot of pleasure. A traveler learns about other countries, their cultures, languages and traditions, and as a result he learns more about life. Young people are better cut for it and that’s why I think they like traveling more.
