Some people say that young people like travelling more than senior citizens, whereas others say that it is not true.

I think that young people like travelling more. First of all, they are usually eager to see other countries, learn something new and socialize with foreigners. All these desires are integral to their age. Secondly, they have their lives ahead of them and have a lot of expectations. Young people have also a lot of energy and like to be explorers, definitely more than seniors do.

At the same time there are people who think that seniors like traveling more. They have all possibilities for it: time and money.

In my opinion desire is more important than possibilities. As people get older they begin to lack one important ingredient, namely a desire. They tend to want to stay in their familiar environment, or sometimes traveling becomes hard for them for health reasons. 

soch 001 005

In conclusion I would 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 or she learns more about life. Young people are better cut for it and that is why I think they like traveling more.
