Part 1. Read the passage and choose the best option (A, B, C or D) to complete each of the following sentences.
Camping holidays are always popular with students and young people – they are a cheap and easy way to see a country. People often travel by train, by coach or on foot, so one thing is important to remember before starting: you :an only take with you what you can carry – usually in a rucksack on your back.
If you travel with a friend, of course some items can be shared – a tent, a gas stove, food. Other things must be taken by each person – clothes, footwear, a sleeping bag.
So you must be sure of how much you can carry. Most people find 10 kg about right. Much more than that and you need another holiday when you get home! And remember, if the weather is wet your rucksack is heavier.
Many people who go camping for the first time take too much and then find they have forgotten the essentials – a tin of beans is no good without a tin opener! But with practice and good advice you can have a fantastic holiday.

Part 2.Look at these four students’ ideas of the holiday they want.
Jane:”I want a holiday by the sea. I just like lying in the sun doing nothing. I’m terribly lazy.”
David: “I’d rather stay at home than make a journey. I’m not very adventurous. I
don’t like travelling and I’d rather go out for short visits and come home in the evening.”
Sally: “I want a holiday with lots to see and do – I love walking, climbing, riding. I don’t like sitting around doing nothing. I’m quite energetic.”
Stephen. “I love driving, finding new places, staying in a different town every night. I like meeting new people and eating different food. I’m very independent!”
Below are the different holidays offered by a travel company.
