  雅思口语里“A trip by public transport”其实本质也是个trip,只不过要强调一下交通工具是public transport。既然题目中没规定去哪里玩耍,那么一定要选择一个有得玩儿有的吃有的逛的地方!我要是你,我就打开旅行APP,输入热门vacation destination,里面都是现成答案啊!

  This topic reminds me of the package tour I went on in Australia.

  I went there with my cousin, my mom and my best friend’s family. It was 3 years ago when we just finished our college entrance exam. We thought travelling to an exotic place is a good way to switch off, to fully relax, you know, after the intensive study in the past several months.

  We visited quite a few tourist attractions, but most of the time, we were on the coach, ‘cause the distances between them are quite long.

  We just admired the views out of the window along the way.

  And we saw the longest coastline on earth, it was super impressive, I mean, the city along the coast is pretty developed, you know, the skyscrapers, and all the facilities. And the sand on the beach was white and soft, but actually, I was a little bit concerned, ‘cause if there was a tsunami, the city would be destroyed in a second, but maybe I was just thinking too much.

  Anyway, we also went to the safari park where we stayed on the bus, and those wild animals were running freely outside in the forest. It was the first time I saw animals out in nature instead of being kept in cages. So it was quite an experience. And I also saw tons of scary insects, which was disgusting.

  I wish we could find the time to do it again.

  语言点解析:

  package tour = package holiday = a holiday/ vacation that is organized by a company at a fixed price and that includes the cost of travel, hotels, etc.

  exotic = from or in another country, especially a tropical one; seeming exciting and unusual because it is connected with foreign countries例如:

  brightly-colored exotic flowers/ plants/ birds

  She travels to all kinds of exotic locations all over the world.

  switch off = (informal) to stop thinking about something or paying attention to something 例如:

  When I hear the word ‘football’ I switch off (= because I am not interested in it).

  The only time he really switches off (= stops thinking about work, etc.) is when we're on vacation.

  intensive = involving a lot of work or activity done in a short time

  an intensive language course

  two weeks of intensive training

  intensive diplomatic negotiations

  coach = a comfortable bus for carrying passengers over long distances例如:

  They went to Italy on a coach tour.

  Travel is by coach overnight to Berlin.

  a coach station (= where coaches start and end their journey)

  a coach party (= a group of people travelling together on a coach)

  safari park = a park in which wild animals move around freely and are watched by visitors from their cars

  find something = to have something available so that you can use it例如:

  I keep meaning to write, but never seem to find (the) time.

  How are we going to find £5 000 for a car?

  Whenever did you find time to do all that cooking?

  Her life was too full to find time for hobbies.

  It's going to be difficult to find the time but I'll make a plan.
