Leaving to Go Home after a Holiday

George is saying goodbye to his friend, John, after a great holiday together in Brighton…

George: Have you had a good holiday, John?

George: And what do you think of Brighton?

John: What an amazing place! There’s so much to see and do… I love everything about it, especially the coffee shops, the restaurants, and the beach.

George: It’s been great, hasn’t it? I’ve really enjoyed spending some time together too. I hope you can come back again soon.

John: Yes, I’d love to come back! Maybe next summer? I’m sure it won’t be too long…

George: Well, you know that you’re always welcome to stay at my house.

John: Thank you, George. And thank you for being such a great host.

George: No problem, it’s been great! Look after yourself and keep in touch!
