When I go to Bangkok, I go by car. I sometimes go to the beach with my family by car, or by van, or by bus.
I have never travelled by plane. My mother will go to Singapore by plane this year or next year. I would like to travel with her.

I always travel in January because there is a carnaval in my city, so I prefer to use that time to relax somewhere else. During the rest of the year I travel by plane 2 or 3 times due to a congress or a meeting. I never travel by train because we don't have them here, but I used to use it everyday when I was doing my Master in The Netherlands.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, I used to travel by plane or train once a year on average. I rarely travel by plane or train now. The last time I traveled by train was about 3 months ago when I was relocating.
