How often do you travel by plane? Which countries would you like to visit?
I haven't travelled by plane. I often travel by car or moto because the distance is less than 300kms.
If I have a chance, I would like to visit France and Japan.
I still try my best to earn money, so I can go anywhere I want.

How often do you travel by plane? Which countries would you like to visit?
I'd like to travel by plane, I really enjoy it, but the planes in my country are old and they aren't safe, so I rarely travel by plane. I'd like to visit the U.S.A as well as visit Europe.
