TEST 2 B Reading
H. Read the letters below about strange travel destinations sent to a travel magazine, then say if the statements below are T (true) or F (false).

Last year I decided to do something totally different and exciting for my holiday. I love horse riding and Im a big fan of cowboy films. So Clare (my husbands sister) and I went to Texas and stayed on a real ranch with real cowboys. Everyday we helped round up the cattle and move them to fresh fields. As I work at a riding school, I didnt mind being on horseback seven hours a day. But Clare only goes riding at weekends and was really exhausted by the end of the day. We had a brilliant time, though! Louisa, Scotland Im never happier than when Im in the great outdoors. As far as Im concerned, staying in hotels is pretty boring. A couple of summers ago, I went to Turkey and stayed in a tree house. Its not the best place to stay if youre afraid of heights because you have to climb up a really high ladder to get to your room. In the morning it was wonderful looking out the window and being right up at the top of the tree. I loved it! This truly is a great place to go if you are adventurous and love nature. Jamie, USA

Before going to university, I took a year off to travel around the world with a group of friends from secondary school. We didnt have a lot of money and we were always trying to find cheap places to stay. You wouldnt believe some of the places we ended up staying in! One of the best was a hostel in Canada. They had turned an old prison into a place to stay but theyd kept it the same as when there were prisoners there. It was quite basic and each cell had four people staying in it. All I could think about was all the people who had been locked up there. I have to say I was thankful that our cell doors werent locked at night! Keira, South Africa

e.g. Louisa had never ridden a horse before. 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 Louisa went to Texas with her husband. Louisa and Clare helped the cowboys. Clare found riding a horse all day tiring. Jamie likes staying in hotels on holiday. Jamie went to Turkey two years ago. The tree house was close to the ground. Keira travelled around the world after university. Keira and her friends had to be careful with money. The prison had been completely changed. The cell doors were locked every night.
