They travel around the world.

They travel round the world.

Is there any difference between these two sentences?

Thanks in advance.

    >>>>"round" is a verb while "around" is a preposition.

    So, you may say "They travel around the world" or "They round the world". It is incorrect to say "They travel round the world"
