What attracts you most on a journey: travelling itself or arriving at your destination?

As you know we travel for different reasons. If the aim of my travel is to get to a place where I can an interesting person to have a talk with it’s as clear as day that arriving is what I long for. When it comes to traveling without any aim but to get yourself familiarised with the place of destination it is possible that dreaming of something pleasant while traveling maybe more interesting than traveling itself.

What sports are popular in Belarus?

I have never been interested in sport so I am not sure that I am knowledgeable enough to give an authoritative answer. I assume that team sports are popular with the Belorussians. Football and hockey are favourites since to play the former all you need is a pitch whereas ice-rink is what you need to play the latter. One more kind of sport I want to mention is judo. It was once martial art but nowadays it is a kind of sport which is popular with young people in my home town at least. Two of my, classmates go. in for it and are quite satisfied with their choice.

What is the role of school in modern society?

School is a place where pupils are taught basics of different sciences. Were there no schools people would remain illiterate and ill-bread. While being at school children learn how to communicate and find compromises if there are some disagreements. Home schooling is an option when it comes to studying subjects only. It’s a bad idea to deprive a child of an opportunity to be among other pupils.

Have you ever experienced homesickness?

What can spoil a holiday?

There are many things which may spoil a holiday. The most probable candidate is weather. Pouring with rain adds little to enjoying yourself when you are on holiday. Yet another thing which may disappoint you is bad service. Undercooked meals are difficult to make up for. Impoliteness of waiters hardly ever makes you smile. Delays are seen as if it were normal but your luggage may get lost. Even if you are at home your successful journey may be darkened by loss of a roll of film with your photos.

What professions involve a lot of travelling?

Numerous… the first set of professions which involves traveling is that of sailors, drivers and pilots. Without them it would be impossible for other people to travel. All vehicles of any kind are worthless if there are none who know how to handle them. One more set of professions which are impossible without going from one place to another is that of businessmen and executives. They have to keep many things under control so they can’t do without paying a visit to places of their interest and responsibility
