Planning a Trip With Your Family

Polly: Hey Mom. I was wondering if we could plan a getaway trip this weekend?

Lisa: Well, that’s a great idea, Polly. It’s been a while since we did something together, as a family.

Polly: Where do you think we should go?

Lisa: I think camping would be a good idea. Your father is quite fond of camping and adventure trips.

Polly: I was thinking the same. I know this wonderful camping site organized by NTC. Let’s call them and ask for availability and prices.

Lisa: That’d be great. Call them up and find out all the details. I’ll talk to your father in the evening.

Planning a Trip With Your Friends

Carl: Hey, tomorrow is our last exam. Doesn't it call for a celebration?

Polly: Yeah. You are absolutely right, Carl. I think we should plan a weekend trip.

Carl: That’s a good idea Polly. Where do you think we should go?

Polly: I went camping with my family a couple of months back. It was quite adventurous and exciting. I think we should go there.

Carl: Camping is not a bad idea. Can you call the campsite and ask about availability?

Polly: Yeah, I will. I have the number. I’ll call them and ask.

Carl: That'd be great. Let me know. I’ll have to tell my parents as well.

Planning a Trip With Your Office Colleagues

Rustin: Do you know we have a three-day weekend next week?

Lisa: Who told you that?

Rustin: I had a word with HR and they told me that the office will be closed for three days next weekend.

Lisa: Oh, really? Let’s plan a weekend trip together, then. I think our team deserves a good weekend getaway.

Rustin: I was thinking the same. Where do you think we should go?

Lisa: I think San Antonio would be perfect. It’s a beautiful place to visit in the fall.

Rustin: I was thinking about some national park.

Lisa: Let’s discuss these options with the team members and let them decide where they would like to go.

Rustin: Yeah. That’s a great idea.

Telling Your Friends About Your Weekend Plan

Polly: Hey what’s up Rustin?

Rustin: I’m good. You look so happy. What’s the matter?

Polly: Well, I’m going on a weekend trip with my family after such a long time.

Rustin: That’s good news. Where are you going?

Polly: We are going camping at Locust Lake State Park.

Rustin: Oh! That’s a really good place for camping. I went there with my family as well, a couple of years ago.

Polly: Yeah. You told me once.

Rustin: Hope you have a great trip. Call me when you get back.

Polly: Sure.
