I often travel by train especially when I go to Ankara which is the capital city of Turkey. I think, train is more comfortable than bus or plane also it's very cheap than others.

I've traveled with train many times in my life, but I've traveled by train just once in my whole life.

I've traveled with plane many times because my school is in the istanbul but my family live in Ağrı. I've traveled by train never my whole life. maybe in the future.
