Planning a Trip

It’s the mid-term break next week, and Victoria and John are planning a trip…

Victoria: John, I can’t wait until next week when we’re off for the mid-term break! Where could we go?

John: Mm... What about Paris?

Victoria: Why not? My friend, Anna, told me that Paris is beautiful at this time of year!

John: There are so many things that I’d love to do in Paris. I’d really like to visit the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum. We could even go to Disneyland Paris too! It looks amazing!

Victoria: Let’s do it! Let’s buy the tickets! I saw a special offer online for a four-day trip to Paris. The plane leaves on Monday and returns on Friday. It costs £250 per person and the hotel is included.

John: That sounds perfect!  I’ll have a look on the internet to see if we can reserve the tickets for the places we want to visit.  I really don’t like queuing!

Victoria: Me either! I like being organised. I’ll check the weather forecast too. I really hope it’ll be warm and sunny!

John:  Me too! I’m so excited already!
