Organising a trip
Ann is going on a vacation. She has dreamt about it for the last six months. She started planning her trip half a year ago. Ann made a research and surfed the Internet.
She found out that the most popular location was Spain.
So, she called a travel agency and asked about offers. They were too expensive so Ann decided to book the tickets and the hotel on her own. Ann also submitted papers for getting a visa.
Finally, she confirmed the reservation.
Ann is happy. She departs next week.
Today Ann is flying away. She set her alarm clock for 5 a.m. She doesn't want to be late.
She arrives at the airport at 7. It's 2 hours before her airplane departs. Ann feels excited. She goes to the check-in desk. She gets her passport and tickets ready. She‛s got one bag and checks it in too. Ann passes the passport control.
She hears the announcer asking all the passengers of her flight to come to gate number 9. Ann boards and takes her seat.
The plane is taking off.
Ann is flying to Spain. The plane took off an hour ago and all the flight lasts for 2 hours.
She has chosen a window seat so now she can overlook the view out of the plane. The sky is clear.
Ann has taken a book to pass the time. She is reading it now. She‛d like to have a drink. She calls over for a stewardess and orders a coffee.
Finally, the plane is landing. Ann can see the airport. She can't wait to start her rest.
Ann has arrived at Spain and now she is riding in a bus to her hotel that she booked several months ago.
The bus pulls over and she gets off. Ann comes to the hotel. She is greeted by a receptionist. The receptionist asks for her passport and she gives it to him.
Several minutes later everything is done and she checks in at last.
Her room number is 101. Ann is excited but she is a little tired as well. She goes to her room.
Today is Ann's day number one. She has planned some excursions and, of course, she wants to do the shopping.
Ann didn't set her alarm clock. However, she woke up pretty early. She went down to a canteen on the ground floor. Her tour is all inclusive that's why she is going to order a lot. She has eaten her breakfast and had a cup of strong coffee and now Ann is walking to a beach. The receptionist told her she would like it.
Ann is feeling excited.
The weather is amazing. The sand is soft and warm. Ann is relaxed. She is spending time on a beach.
She put all necessary items in her bag. Her skin is pretty sensitive therefore Ann has got ready in advance.
Now she is putting some sun lotion on her body. Ann is wearing sunglasses. She also bought new flip-flops in a local shop. The towel is next to her. She didn't take any money to the beach. She is lying on the beach and getting suntan. In her mind Ann is planning her next day.
