A very popular method of travelling is hiking or camping. It is travelling on foot. Walking tours are very interesting. People go to campsites, which are usually near some lakes or mountains, with tents or caravans. While staying there you can go fishing, hiking, mountaineering, bicycling, swimming and sunbathing. People make food for themselves in nature, so there are lots of activities to do. Camping is the healthiest way of spending holidays.

If you like to hike and travel, then you’re a special kind of hiker, a travelling hiker. Travelling hikers have a spirit of adventure, a natural curiosity about people and places far from home, a sense of humor that enables them to take every curve in the road in stride and a young-at-heart spirit common to active people of all ages and stages of life. The travelling hiker also shares a love of nature, an appreciation of the green world and a desire to stay active and healthy while participating in a kind of travel that challenges body and mind.

The Most Common Lodging

Nowadays there is a vast choice of great accommodation to suit every budget and every taste for those visiting another country or city. Guests can choose luxuriuos hotels, which seem to be expensive; B&B hotels, where you will get only breakfasts and a place to sleep; youth hostels, where you are meant to serve everything yourself and many other places to stay in. Sometimes it is even difficult to decide which to choose while travelling. It all depends on your requirements and how much you want to spend.

Some people enjoy staying in a hotel. City hotels are used by business travellers and tourists alike. Sure, it’s convenient. You have a chance to make a telephone call and reserve any room you want in a good time, to be confident by your arrival. Besides, you don’t need to serve yourself, everything will be done by the hotel staff. More than that, in the hotel you can be offered some interesting excursions and you can be sure that they are safe because the hotel is responsible for every offer.

Pensions or guest houses are very popular among the tourists looking for a more personal place to stay which will cost less. A guest house normally has at least 4 letting bedrooms, some with private facilities. Breakfast is available and evening meals may be provided. They are normally run by the owner(s).

Motels or lodges are overnight accommodation, which have enjoyed an increase in their business in recent years with the growing number of private car owners. A motel is a hotel mainly for motorists and located conveniently near major motorways.

B&B accommodation offers bed and breakfast, usually in a private house. B&Bs normally accommodate no more than 6 guests, and may or may not serve an evening meal. Staying at a B&B is a great way to experience life of local people. B&B prices vary depending on location, time of year and number of people. They are generally cheaper than hotels but some are more luxurious and prices reflect this. Facilities will differ between B&Bs, but usually rooms will include a sink and a bathroom, television, wardrobe, clean bed linen, towels and tea/coffee making facilities.

Hostels are low-cost accommodation. They generally provide private and shared rooms for individuals, couples or groups. Most hostels are self-catering, although some provide hot meals and refreshments. Prices vary depending on location, length of stay and time of year. Facilities vary from hostel to hostel – most will have a common room, a café/restaurant or self-catering kitchen so you can make your own meals, and lockers. But in some hostels (usually in bigger towns and cities) you’ll find Internet access, bars, game rooms, libraries, TV and laundry service.

If you’re looking for a home away from home, why not stay in self-catering accommodation, which usually comes in the form of an apartment or house? It’s a good idea for those who want to be free to organize everything when and how they like, they look after themselves. Generally, all self-catering properties are fully furnished and supplied with household equipment such as cutlery and crockery, although in some cases you’ll be charged extra for linen or towels as well as for gas and electricity.
