Summer Learning Journey: Week 4 Day 19 Activity 1: Planes, trains and automobiles

Activity 1
Let’s imagine that the neighboring town was about 30 kilometers away. There are a number of beautiful villages and interesting things to see along the way. You have four options for this trip. You can take a:
  1. Train – 25 minute ride; No stops along the way; $12 for the trip (return)
  2. Bus – 45 minute ride; Two stops along the way to look at interesting villages; $8 for the trip (return)
  3. Scooter – 1 hour ride; Unlimited number of stops; $5 for the trip (return)
  4. Bicycle – 2 hour ride; Unlimited number of stops but there are some hills along the way; $1 (return)

I would use a Train because I would get there faster/no traffic. Also I don’t think that $12 was that much.


  1. Hi Saveu
    The train would be the fastest option but the bad thing about it is that you can't stop along the way to look at places. Keep up the amazing work.

  2. Hi Saveu,

    I think that you have made a good choice, particularly given that Germany will be really cold while you are there and a fast train ride would probably be ideal. I can't imagine that you will want to sit on the back of a scooter travelling through the countryside in the snow! I actually talked a friend of mine who lives in Jena, Germany today and she said that it was pretty cold at home today (about 7 degrees) and pouring rain. Yuck - and sadly, not that different from our weather here in Auckland!

    Hope that you are staying warm and dry,

    Rachel :)
