They mostly travel in boats that they made out of logs or wood. Next, They would travel by river. They didn't have soft, and nice furniture to use. They had to sit on hard, and rough benches. The school had has a fire place inside but, if you were bad you would have to sit on a hard bench in the back of the school house and freeze.
