As traveling is not a new thing to me, I came to many experiences that made me learned and understand the beauty and the ugliness of traveling. Since 1990s, I have been into different places; rolled or flew in any way I would decide. I actually consider myself a jetsetter as I made many number of flying using different airlines. I have also traveled a lot in road thus made me a route savvy cruiser; means that I can easily make a plan which road to use when I wanted to go into cruising a long drive.
But what is it really taken into consideration in order to decide whether to fly or roll the wheels? The answer for experienced travelers would be simple. Go on and read and read my tips.
Flying will lessen the time you need to travel but will not be too exciting more than the taking-off and landing. Believe me you will just see the airport, the skies, and your co-passengers all the while when you ride a commercial airline. Flying is a less tiring but a boring journey. Money matter is also another consideration as at times it can save you some money for airfare but will cost you more cost on taxis or transfers.
Flying can make your travel fast, delayed, or your flight for the day may be cancelled for one reason or another. Cancelled flights can also result to another problem if you have flight connections for another carrier in order to get you into your final destination. When your flight is cancelled, you may be obliged to arrange a hotel for yourself as there are times that some medium-scale airlines do not answer for accommodation you can use to stay overnight in order to wait for your replacement flight schedule the next day. This kind of situation mostly happens when you make domestic flights.
Another inconvenience of flying is when your luggage got offloaded or misrouted; you shall not be able to have access to your important wardrobes or other accessories until sometime and the impact could become worst if it takes a couple of days before you can have your luggage from the airline.
So what about rolling? Of course if you are just into a domestic travel, rolling would be an alternative. I will not lie that cruising is my first choice only if I have the liberty of time. While rolling takes longer for you to reach your destination if you are traveling a few hundred or a thousand kilometers, it provides you the opportunity to enjoy the scenery. It may take days for a thousand or more kilometer cruise but you can always take a break any time you wish. Resting will not be a problem if you need to stay in a place for an overnight since you can always choose any travelers-inn or a quality hotel accommodation along the way. Like any common travel plan, money is always a consideration. Be prepared to fund your cruise and ensure that you have the money in your pocket. When you roll, you have all the freedom to stay or hop into scenic places, historical landmarks and the food specialty in each region.
Make sure that your vehicle is in top condition before starting to roll as there might be instances that you will be cruising in isolated places where you cannot buy parts or a shop.
I have also provided some tips on road travel in one of my articles which allows you to take note what important things you should prepare when taking a long cruise journey.
So whether you are flying or rolling, all it needs to take is to be practical while not compromising the fun in your journey. 🙂
