Toby Hi, Olivia! How are you?

Olivia I’m fine, thanks, Toby. I’m just getting ready for my holiday.

Toby Oh, really. Where are you going to go?

Olivia Spain – next week.

Toby Lovely. Freya and I are going to France next week.

Olivia Are you going to go by plane?

Toby No, we’re going to drive there in our car. What about you? Are you going

to fly?

Olivia Yes, I am. First class, in fact. Well, it’s a nice way to start the holiday.

Toby Yes, I’m sure.

Olivia And I’m going to stay in a five-star hotel by the sea.

Toby Very nice. We aren’t going to stay in a hotel. We’re going to camp.

Olivia Oh … well, it’s cheap, I suppose.

Toby We like camping.

Olivia Is the campsite near the sea?

Toby No, it’s in the mountains. We’re going to go climbing every day.

Olivia Really? I’m not into climbing. I’m going to spend every day on the

beach – and every night, I’m going to visit a different nightclub!

Toby There aren’t any nightclubs in the mountains.

Olivia Oh. So what are you going to do at night?

Toby We’re going to sleep!
