III. Read the text and answer the following questions. (25 points)
Few people have packed more into a day trip than Michael and Lilian Long from Kent who took the
ferry from their home in England to Boulogne in France in 1987. On Easter Sunday this adventurous
couple went for a short walk around the town. In no time they were spectacularly lost and showing all
the qualities of born explorers.
We walked and walked, Mrs. Long recalled, and the further we walked to try to get back, the
further we walked away from Boulogne.
Unable to speak French, they felt embarrassed about asking the way, so they walked throughout
the night until finally the next morning a driver gave them a lift to a small village they did not
recognize. Here they caught a train to the wrong destination Paris. In the French capital they spent all
their remaining money on catching what they thought was the express train back to Boulogne. After an
enjoyable trip they arrived in Luxembourg at midnight on Monday.
Two hours later police put them on the train back to Paris, but it divided and their half ended up
in Basle, an attractive medieval town in the north of Switzerland.
Having no money, they tried to find work, but without success. The railway company offered
them a free ticket back to Belfort, thinking that this was where they had come from. Once they got off
the train, our heroes hiked forty-two miles to Vesoul, hitched a lift to Paris and then nearly boarded the
train to Bonn in Germany.
Diverted just in time to the right platform, they finally reached Boulogne a week after they had
set out on their walk. They had covered a distance of almost 1,700 km without luggage, maps or any
idea of where they were. When he arrived at Dover harbour, Mr. Long said it was the first time they
had travelled abroad and that they would not be leaving England again.
1. When Mr. and Mrs. Long first got lost, why didnt they ask the way?
2. Why did they go to Switzerland?
3. Why were they given tickets to Belfort?
4. How long was the distance they had covered?
5. Would they travel again?
