Hello :)

I'd like to ask about the comparison.

When I rewrite #1, which is correct, #2 or #3? I wonder if I should put "things" after "all" to make the meaning clear. Is it no difference to choose either of them?

#1 Nothing is as pleasant as travelling.
#2 Travelling is the most pleasant of all things.
#3 Travelling is the most pleasant of all.

I'll be happy to have a comment.

Thank you
Lina

#2 is OK. #3 can be OK as a follow up to other choices or to another thought. It is a bit weak as a stand-alone. :wink:
