I travel by plane to my country from Ireland. It’s usually once in year. Last time I went to my country by plane was 5 months ago. I’d like to travel many countries, specially Spain, Madrid to visit my lovely friend.
I hardly travel unless it's very necessary or for official reasons. I have watched and read a lot of interesting stuff about the unique Spanish culture of Argentina. It has more places of interest than USA or China. There many modern restaurants, clean sandy beaches, and beautiful historic buildings. Further more the streets and roads are less jam-packed making it easier to move around. For these reasons, I would love to take a trip only to Argentina.
I love travelling so much. If the location is far, I prefer getting there by plane. However it depends on the price. Coach trips are usually cheaper than flight prices. I would like to visit LA. I wonder Holywood, Beverly Hills and Silicon Valley. On the other hand, the trip takes a lot of time on the air from my country Turkey. Besides, price of this trip is extremmely expensive. I think, I will never be able to affort it.
I have never traveled by plane yet but I would like to travel to Maldives and Netherlands.
My last flight was a long time ago, five years from now to be more specific, so I have to say, I don’t fly too much. I want to visit Japan, England and USA.
unfortunately, I have no conditions to travel in my country as well as abroad and haven't had opportunity to travel by plane yet. If possible, i want to visit all domestic destinations and then to The Republic of Korea, Singapore.

I have never traveled by plane outside my country but my old brother has. He has been to Colombia, Panamá, Nicaragua (not by plane but by car and bus), Guatemala, Mexico, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington. And I have to say I´m proud of him. I hope to start travelling by plane outside very soon. Regarding to my person, I have the opportunity to travel by plane two times (inside my country, Costa Rica). The first time I lost the trip (By the time I arrived at the gate, the plane was already departured), and the second time was the first time I traveled. It was a necessary (urgently) reason because that day my little baby first boy was born, he was born in march 23rd, 2019. (Yes, last year. :) )

I live in southern of Italy, instead. i have never been out of my country but i would like to visit a lot of countries such as Canada, Argentina, Australia or to visit Paris or London or Iceland.
I usually travel by plane in summer with my family. The city I like the most is Seoul. It has many landscape and fresh air. However, I always have to come to airport before 3 hours, because I won't get on the plane if I come on time. Even if, I still like moving by plane, It is known as a fastest transportation, so I can save a lot of time.

Oh. I am twenty-two years old. But I have never been traveled by plane before. As you know, my country is middle-income, so it's very difficult for Vietnamese people to travel by plane. I think half past Vietnamese people has never been traveled by plane, and me too. If I have the opportunity to travel abroad, I will choose China. Because I love Chinese landscapes, culture, films, foods, etc..., Moreover, Vietnamese culture and Chinese culture have many similarities. So, I think China is the best choice.
