: Hey Bella how are you. You look very busy.
: Oh hi Jim. It's so good to see you. Yeah I am busy. I'm getting ready for my gap year in Australia. Can you believe it. I have so many things to do before I go and I need to buy good backpack and I must write up a list. I can't remember it all.
: Australia why Australia it's such a remote place.
It's so far from Britain from your home in London.
: Well actually Australia is one of the most popular places to visit among backpackers and budget travellers.
: How come the flights are long and they must be expensive.
: Yes that's true but it's easy to find odd jobs there. We can move along the coastline enjoy the ocean and earn our living as we settle in some place for some time.
: You say we who's your travel companion then.
: Oh it's Amanda of course.
: I see. Still I can't get over the shock. Do you think there is a lot of sightseeing to do there.
: Well Jim I think Sydney has something to boast of. We'll see this incredible bridge and the Opera House of course but culture isn't why people come to Australia.
: So what are you going to do there then.
: Bella will go surfing of course. Amanda and I adore surfing.
: Oh I've clean forgotten about it. You'll enjoy it immensely then.
: Yes we'll go diving as well. I can't wait to see the underwater life of the Great Barrier Reef. I'll see turtles vibrant coral beautiful fish.
: I've heard people in Australia are very friendly and that they are good at cooking.
: Yes we are hoping to make friends among locals and try their famous beach barbecues.
: Oh I'm already envious. I wish I could join you.
: Why not book a flight and pack your bag.
: I can't I'll go straight to college no gap year for me.
: Poor thing. Well I hope any year you'll have some free time to travel.
: I hope so too but it won't be much time. I mean I'll be doing job training at my father's office which is very important for me I'll gain some experience and earn some money. I might choose Europe to travel to next summer but Australia will definitely be too far a place to go.
: I say well you can follow me on Facebook and see my pics.
: I will. Good luck with your trip.
