    have travelled/have been travelling

    Hi,

    I would like to understand when should I use the present perfect simple or the continuous when talking about a period of time, because I read in my grammar book that the simple talks about a period of time( I've travelled a lot)
    but so does the present perfect continuous. I would like to know if there is any difference in meaning, and what should I consider to choose one of them.
    Could you give me a clue?
    Thanks so much

    Carla: click on Search (to the right of New Posts, and Unanswered). Then Click Advanced search. the easiest then is, on the right, type in kukinecka as the name of the person who began the thread, and then find 'present perfect' as the name of one of his most recent posts (3rd May)
