Topic N10 ("Holidays, Travel and Tourism")
For most people there is no problem in deciding how they are
going to spend the money they earn - it all goes on housing,
food, clothess, transport and, if they are lucky, leisure and
some holidays. Many of us have spent our lives without doing
anything out of the ordinary and now I have got a marvellous
opportunity of doing something exciting and I will. If I win the
prize of 20,000 dollars, I will spend it in the world round trip.
To travel round the world has long been my dream and with
this sum of money behind me this dream is likely to be realized.
I am going to take a trip round the world. I am going to do a lot
of sight seeing. I am goung to put up at expensive hotels and
spend much money on entertaiment and other exciting things.
My travel experience would begin in New York, known as

its steep narrow houses and canals lined with trees. Flying on to
Coppenhagen I would eat Danish open-faced sandwiches and be

Of course, a serious traveller could not leave Italy without
visiting Florence, Venice, Naples and Rome, for all these cities
are living museums. Continuing South, I would trace the beginning
of Western civilization. I would make stops in Athens and Cario.
Certainly a chance to see the pyramids should not be missed.

Here, the traveller finds many precious gems for sale, but the
brightest jewel of all is Ceylon itself. Leaving this island I
would travel to Bangkok, an Oriental city of many charms. Then,

plane bound for Acapulco. In this Mexican resort, I would swim,
sunbathes and eat spicy foods.

If a tour of Latin America were still possible, I would want
to stop in Peru, Argentina, Brazil. But by that time mu funds
would probably have run low. So, where would my round the would
trip end? For me there is only one answer: Moscow, the city I
will never tire of calling home.
