Hey Trench. You’re looking good. Did you go for a vacation somewhere?
Yes, I’ve just come back from Hawaii.
Hawaii! Wow, that sounds exotic! I’ve heard that Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Na Pali Coast are amazing.
Yes, I agree. The islands are so green and the water’s so blue.
The beaches go on forever and the food is fantastic. I’ll always remember this vacation.
Did you swim along the shore?
Yes, I went swimming every day. I had the time of my life.
How was the weather there?
It was nice... bright and sunny. You should go there when you can. It feels like paradise here on earth and I’m sure you’d have a great time.
Yes, I think I would.

I’ll be flying to New York during Christmas.
What struck you so suddenly?
I just want to spend my Christmas holidays with family this year.
Well, you should book your ticket now.
You must be kidding! There are still 6 months left until Christmas.
Yes, but seats will be full by the end of October. You shouldn’t wait if you’ve made up your mind.
But maybe prices will be cheaper in October.
Cheaper prices won’t do you any good if there are no seats.
You’re absolutely right. I’ll do it right away.

I was thinking about a cruise vacation this year. What do you think?
That sounds great. Where do you plan to go?
I want to cruise to the Maldives.
The Maldives? Oh! That is a great place for family vacation.
Sandy beaches and clear blue sea...
But I’m worried about the expense. I’ve heard that travel agencies charge a lot of money for Maldives packages.
I think that it depends on the kind of accommodation and travel you choose.
Well, of course I want to have the best of everything.
Then get ready to spend a lot of money. You’re not travelling alone, are you?
No, my wife and I will go together.
Well, you can try to look up good deals online. You might be able to save yourself from spending a fortune.

You look upbeat. What’s the occasion?
My company has sponsored a trip to L.A for me.
That is great news! So what’s the purpose of your trip?
I’ve been invited to attend a seminar organized by the company.
What is the seminar about?
It’s related to the launch of products manufactured by our firm.
That sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy your stay in L.A.
Thanks Bob. I’ll keep you updated!
