I personally prefer traveling by car, compared to the train or air, obviously for the reasonable distance. Beyond certain kilometers, it doesn’t make sense to drive for the obvious reasons.
Even while traveling by car, I prefer to drive. My traveling preference has much to do with my strong belief in being in control.
I like to set up my schedule to start, take a break, and reach the destination. Not that I had ever missed a train or a flight, except for once, when I had slept at the airport after an overnight long-haul flight. Driving by self, gives me a sense of freedom, as well.
What do you prefer? Do you like to travel by car, train or plane? What do you think is your reason for the choice?
