Where do you prefer to spend your summer vacation and why?
“This year I can’t afford any trips. I’m short of money. Last year I spent my vacation in Koktebel, Crimea. Of course, if I had enough money I would like to go somewhere abroad. The place of my vacation always depends on my financial situation.”
“I would definitely stay in Crimea as I live there and find it to be the best place for a vacation. I’m a sailor and have been to a lot of countries but still prefer to spend my holiday at home. Besides it saves a lot of money.”
“I’m on holiday now. This year I’ve decided to spend my vacation here in Kyiv. I’m from Russia, from the town of Magnitogorsk. This is my first time here and I really enjoy the beauty of the Ukrainian capital. I have relatives living in Kyiv, so I can afford to stay here for at least two weeks to visit all the well-known Kyiv sites.”
“In a few weeks, I’m heading to the Shatsky lakes in western Ukraine. I also like to spend vacations in the Carpathian Mountains. I prefer travelling around Ukraine, as we have so many beautiful places that are really worth visiting. It’s much cheaper to spend a vacation in Ukraine than to go somewhere abroad.”
“I’ve spent my vacation in Bulgaria this year. I’m happy. It was really great. Next year I’m going to explore some other European countries. As for Ukraine, I think that Crimea is the best place for a summer holiday.”
