    Re: I'm in traveling.

    I am not a teacher.

    B. is correct.

    You can say
    I'm in a travel or
    I'm traveling

    but A. is an incorrect mix-up of both.

    Hi kraken,
    You can't use "in a travel".
    "To travel" is a verb, travel is not a noun in this context.
    We can say "He is on his travels." or "Air travel is very popular."
    So, we can say "I'm on my travels." or "I'm on a voyage/journey."

    Hi.

    I'm not a teacher. But in UK English, the present participle of 'travel' is 'travelling' (with double-l).

    I thing American uses one 'l'.
