    Crazy about..

    Hi again, another question:
    Is it correct to say:
    "I'm crazy about travelling"
    When I want to say that I love to travel so so much..

    "I'm crazy about travelling"

    Say it if you're some kind of combination teenager/mindless adult. AVOID if you are over 15 years of age!

    I adore travelling
    Fine, if you are female, and live in wealthy 1930's New York. Avoid!

    I love travelling.
    Yes
    and
    For more everyday use : I like/ I'm interested in travelling

    Yes, you can say this and here are some more expressions to express what we like:
    I am mad about + verb + ing
    I am intersted in
    I am fond of
    I am keen on

    Do you know other expressions?

    Careful with this one. Someone else can say of you, "he's mad about football", but the person themselves wouldn't say, "I'm mad about..." unless a bit, what we call, 'affected'/overly-effusive, gushing. A native speaker would know the right casual tone to be able to get away with it.
