Chris Hi, Dawn. I hear you’re going to be on holidav next week.
Dawn Yes, I am. And I’m really looking forward to it.
Chris What are you going to do?
Dawn I’m going Interrailing with a friend.
Chris Interrailing? I did that when I was a student. I travelled around Europe with very little money, not much food, and no sleep. It was fun, but I don’t want to do it again.
Dawn Ah, but you see Interrailing as an adult is very different.
Chris Really? In what way?
Dawn Well, you can travel first class now, and you don’t have to go for a whole month.
Chris How long are you going for?
Dawn I wanted to go for two weeks, but work’s so busy at the moment… so just a week.
Chris And which countries are you visiting?
Dawn Italy and France. We’re starting in Venice, then we’re going to Verona, and then Milan. We’re stopping off in Paris on the way back, because I want to visit the Louvre.
Chris What about sleeping arrangements? Are you sleeping on the train like all the students do?
Dawn No, only on the night train from Paris to Venice. We have a two-bed sleeping compartment. And we’re having dinner in the dining car of the train. Apart from that, we’re sleeping in hotels. They’re already booked.
Chris Well, it sounds like a different kind of trip to the one we went on as students.
Dawn Absolutely. It’s going to be different, but I’m sure we’re going to have lots of fun.
