I went travelling 10 years ago today (for 8 months); how my life has changed since then. When writing something about this on Facebook earlier, the word travelling corrected itself to traveling, so this was yet another word I had to look up today to check the spelling.
As suspected, travelling is the British English way and traveling is the American English way explains Wiki Answers and Yahoo Answers. It therefore depends on your audience as to which one you use.
Future Perfect website says that the official requirements are that we “double a single consonant letter at the end of any base where the preceding vowel is spelled with a single letter and stressed”. As this adding of -ing and -ed to verbs sometimes confuses people, they have provided some tips which are worth a read as the examples are laid out really well.
That’s all for today.
