I think my favourite way of travelling is by car, because I don't have to keep scheduled time.
I am a plenty of freedom to go whenever I like.
If I wish, I could spent all day travelling for where I like.

Hi!
The best way for me to travel is by boat, because you're completely isolated from the rest of the world, and I like that, also I feel safer in a boat than anywhere else because not everybody can get there. And I also find it's very romantic and peaceful.

ermm...it's a lame joke??

the joke is just great!!! I'm not gonna explain it. some people like and understand this kinds of joks and some of them don't. Gordon sounds like a little exited kid while he's telling jokes... but he's a little bit older i gues ;)

I don't understand the joke too can anybody explain it to me please

Dear Muron,
don't worry, you are not alone. The Gorden's joke isn't funny at all. :-) So, learn English and don't worry.
 

Dear everyone
I am Japanese.
 

I don't understand Gordon's joke "That wouldn't make any sense at all ?".
Tell me wherever the joke is funny.
