Listen to the text “At the travel agent’s” and answer the questions:
– Hello. What can I do for you?
– Well, I’d like to go somewhere with beautiful beaches.
– Sure, sometimes it’s nice to visit countries that have good weather and beautiful beaches. That’s why places like Australia and Fiji are such popular destinations.
– Are there any places a bit nearer?
– Certainly. Here you are. Look at this leaflet. The southern coast of the Black Sea is a nice place to spend holidays. There are different ways to do that. I can advise you some interesting tours. If you like camping, you could hike the Crimean Mountains to reach the coast and spend some days there living in the tents and making meals yourself in the open air.
– Oh, no. I’d like to have a rest without cooking. Is there anything else?
– Yeah, there’s another interesting trip in the same area – just around the mountains but staying in summer cottages while you’re walking towards the coast and then staying in a hotel at the seaside. The hotel is not big but very comfortable.
– That doesn’t sound very good too. I don’t like walking too much. I’d like to do nothing at all.
– Perhaps you’d better stay at home and watch beautiful beaches on TV?
