Reading
H. Read the letters below about bad experiences sent to a travel magazine, then
say if the statements below are T (true) or F (false).

Living in the country can be a nightmare for simple


things like catching a plane. My husband Paul and I
were going on a holiday to Thailand. A friend picked us
up and we drove for three hours to get to the airport. We
arrived in plenty of time and waited in the queue at the
check-in desk. When it was our turn, a look of horror
came over Pauls face. He had forgotten all of our travel
documents on the kitchen table! We had to reschedule
our flight, drive all the way home and leave the
following day.
Olivia, New Zealand

I always wanted to travel to Venice and


I finally did last year. As a city full of
canals, one way to cross the water is to use
a gondola, a traditional rowing boat. I was
with my best friend, Sue, and we decided
to hire one. We had so much fun on the
boat, laughing and posing for photos! At
one point, I stood up to take a photo of
Sue. However, the boat started to rock, I
lost my balance and actually dropped my
camera in the water. It was horrible!
Kerry, Wales

I had travelled to Europe many times and was confident about getting around
different countries. I was with my younger sister who had never travelled abroad
before. In a way, I was responsible for teaching her about the right and wrong ways
of travelling. We caught an overnight train from northern Italy headed for Austria
to visit family. We had fallen asleep and woke up when the ticket inspector asked
us for our tickets. He looked closely at the tickets and then explained that we were
on a train going to Spain!
David, Canada

e.g. Olivias sister drove them to the airport.
