When traveling, it would be great for you to know some English words that are often used while traveling overseas. Here are some words that I think you should know when going abroad on a trip.

For example:

“It took me three hours to get to my destination”

“I can’t wait to get to my holiday destination”

For example:

For example:

“I booked a five-star hotel in Paris” 

“The hotel where I stayed at was dirty and unhygienic”.

For example:

“My journey to Rome was filled with exciting events”

For example:

“It took me a couple of hours to pack my luggage”
