Favorite way to travel?

For Christmas this year my family and I needed to fly to Wisconsin to visit family and I got to thinking about which mode of transportation really is my favorite. I never really was that big of a fan of driving until I learned that listening to audiobooks is a fantastic way to stay entertained while driving long distance. It's like having another person in the car telling you an extremely entertaining story the whole way. Only this only works when I'm the one driving cause I feel like I need to be doing something else while listening to an audiobook that's just enough to keep me busy but not enough to distract me, like cooking, cleaning, walking, etc. Trains are also pretty convenient; I recently spent 3 months taking the train every day of the week and once you get past the anxiety of missing your stop, it's a great place to get work done or actually read a physical book. However, they can get pretty crowded with commuters which can suck if you like personal space. Then there's flying, by far (at least so far) of getting from point A-B. Certainly for trips that are across the country, or would take more than 12 hours by car I prefer the convenience and speed of flying, however, there are enough annoyances that come along with flying to just never allow it to be my favorite method. To start there's needing to drive to a lot to park your car to then take a shuttle to the airport, then security, then waiting for the actual flight. It just all seems like so much wasted time. I don't have much experience with long-distance bus transportation, but from what I've heard from friends, I'm gonna go ahead and say that will never be my favorite method. So, in the end I have to conclude my favorite still to be driving, you?
