Advantages and Disadvantages of Travelling on Foot 

  Millions of people all over the world travel to see other countries and continents, modern cities and the ruins of ancient towns, they travel to enjoy picturesque places, or just for a change of scene. Nowadays, everybody can go to the place of destination by train, plane, car, bus, ferry. However, why do many people travel on foot and consider it to be the best way?

  To begin with, travelling on foot is the cheapest and the most economical mean of transport on Earth. It doesn’t require a purchase of fuel or tickets which are very expensive at current times. The only cost you bear is basically food. What’s more, travelling on foot is environmentally friendly. It does not emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere because no fuel or energy is used.

  Another positive aspect is that it is a great way to maintain a good shape and a very effective exercise to lose weight and reduce stress. It is a big effort which builds muscles and lowers the blood pressure. Although it is very exhausting, it strengthens endurance without the negative side effects.

  Another positive argument is that travelling on foot allows to stop anywhere at any time you want. If you are tired you can take a break to take a deep breath. In contrast to common means of transport you can stop en route to admire the local scenery and take a few pictures.

  The first disadvantage of travelling on foot is that it is very hazardous. Walking down the street with no pavement makes the situation more difficult for drivers who can easily run somebody down. In addition to that, a poor visibility during the fog doubles the risk.

  Another negative aspect concerns the weather conditions. You are always dependant on the weather. It can easily spoil your plans.

  Furthermore, travelling on foot is very exhausting and time-consuming. An incessant effort will not let you win. You will be sooner or later forced to take a break and rest for a while. In meantime however, you lose valuable time. Travelling on foot takes hours even days. 
  Taking everything into consideration, I am inclined to say that travelling is time-consuming, exhausting and not worth to risk a life. I believe there is no reason to travel on foot if there are so many available means of transport.
