Nowadays,going to the place, 40 miles away from home, is not a tough job. There are several feasible ways to deal with. For examples, I can go to that place by my car, by bus or by train.
Firstly, it is more easy to go to anywhere by your car. You do not have to go to the station for a ticket or time schedule.But you can arrange everything about your trip such as, how long it will take,when you leave and arrive, and so on. by yourself. By the way, going by your car has a few disadvantage. It is more expensive because you have to pay for the gas which is dramatically exorbitant today by yourself. Furthermore, being a driver in a trip is not a good choice. You have to drive so carefully thus you cannot enjoy the trip as much as you could.
Secondly, if there is a railway station near your house and at the place you want to go, going by train is also interesting. Instead of driving by yourself, all you have to do is only going to the staion for a ticket and then taking your relaxing trip. In my point of view, train is the most safe vehicle in my country. Unfortunately, it takes you more time and there is not a lot of train arriving the station within a day. Thus you would miss it easily.
Thirdly, at the present, going to the place you want by bus is the easiest method. Like the train, it costs not much but it is more frequent than the train. Hence, you can take it almost anytime you want. Otherwise, it take you to the place faster the train do.
In conclusion, if I have to go to anywhere, not very far from my house, I prefer going by bus because it is comparatively more convenient and much cheaper. Otherwise, I do not have to drive but sit comfortablyand have fun with the beautiful scenery outside along the trip.
