Traveling As A Verb: An Exercise In Non-Routine English

Travel is the act of moving people from one distant geographic location to another. It is usually done by human beings, either individually or in groups, with no luggage, and may be one way travel or round trip travel. When traveling, there is always a destination, and it usually is some place that is very far away from where the traveler is. The place to which the traveler is going to go may be a place with scenic beauty, a city with modern or modernistic conveniences, or it may be a wilderness with exciting experience or adventure. The term “travel” refers to the act of going from one place to another, whether it is for a vacation, a business trip, a holiday, or any other purpose.

When travelling, we need to consider certain travel essentials to help us make the most of our travel. These travel necessities are essential to allow us to enjoy our journey. Travelling can be an enjoyable activity if we follow certain basic tips. Travelling requires planning and preparation on our part, and these steps should not be taken lightly. Let us have a look at these basic tips for planning and preparation of your travel.

Travelling is not a simple trip all the time. There are unexpected events in travel that may throw you off the track of your journey and prevent you from travelling smoothly. A few of these events include delays and cancellations, weather conditions like light & heavy snow, fog, thunder storm, earthquake, and rain, traffic jams, and other uncontrollable circumstances that may come up in the middle of your journey. Therefore, it is important that you have a list of all the events that may happen in your journey and keep a record of those events so that you will be able to plan your travelling accordingly. Your travel plans will not be as effective and efficient if you do not have a travel itinerary.

Travelling is a verb and it is used in a variety of ways. One way to express travel is to say, “I am traveling” or “I am taking a journey.” When we say “I am taking a journey”, the journey refers to the destination (place) where you are going while the “taken” gives another meaning which is “to be taken.” It is very common to use the verb “taken” when talking about journeys because the word takes indicates that you are going somewhere while “taken” means that you have been there already.

The words “I am traveling” and “I am taking a journey” are two different verbs that can have many different meanings. The main purpose of this article is to provide an example of the variation of Travelling as applied in the United States English language, “I am travelling.” The base form of this verb is “travelled” while the subjunctive is “is.” Therefore, the sentence is “I am Travelling or I am taking a journey.” The subject of the verb is Travelling while the verb of the end of the sentence is “is.”

Now let us return to our first example. In American English, we would say, “While I was travelling, I met an old lady who seemed to know a lot about travelling. She took me aside and told me that she was a non-routine walker who liked to take in the culture while walking.” The word “while” can precede the non-routine element of the sentence, which in this case is walking, and let us note that is adds an extra clause to the verb. Notice how the travel meaning changes just before the conjunction “and,” which is a restriction that we all have to abide by when writing American English.
