    travel around the world

    Even if I were to travel around the world, no place would be better than Niagara Falls. Travel is very exciting. Because it's always filled with new things that give inspirations to me.

    1. Are both "travel around the world" and "travel the world" okay for "world travel"?
    2. Are these three form all okay?
    Traveling/To travel/Travel is very exciting.
    3. It's hard to choose between "an inspiration" and "inspirations" in this kind of case where plural forms such as "new things" precede. Are both okay?

    Re: travel around the world

    Every sentence requires a space after the punctuation mark that ends it.

    "Travelling" and "Travel" work. I find "To travel" OK but I wouldn't use it.
    3. It's hard to choose between "an inspiration" and "inspirations" in this kind of case where plural forms such as "new things" precede. Are both okay?
    Use either "new things which are an inspiration to me" or, more simply, "new things which inspire me". "Inspirations" doesn't work.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: travel around the world

    Bad: "that give inspirations to me."

    Good: "that inspire me."

    Acceptable but weak: "that give me inspiration."
