For most people there is no problem in deciding how they aregoing to spend the money they earn – it all goes on housing, food, clothess, transport and, if they are lucky, leisure andsome holidays. Many of us have spent our lives without doinganything out of the ordinary and now I have got a marvellousopportunity of doing something exciting and I will. If I win theprize of 20,000 dollars, I will spend it in the world round trip.
To travel round the world has long been my dream and withthis sum of money behind me this dream is likely to be realized. I am going to take a trip round the world. I am going to do a lotof sight seeing.
I am goung to put up at expensive hotels andspend much money on entertaiment and other exciting things.
My travel experience would begin in New York, known asone of the world’s most modern cities because of its highbuildings and its dynamic spirit. From New York I would cross theAtlantic Ocean to England. In London I would explore the BritishMuseum and visit the shops and pubs along King’s Road in Chelsea. My next stop would be Amsterdam, an attractive city because ofits steep narrow houses and canals lined with trees.
Flying on toCoppenhagen I would eat Danish open-faced sandwiches and beentertainde at night clubs in Tivoli Gardens. Having seen enoughcities by this time I would head South to the Italian Riviera. Portofino, a handsome fishing village resembling an operasetting, is one of the most charming vacations sports in Europe. Of course, a serious traveller could not leave Italy withoutvisiting Florence, Venice, Naples and Rome, for all these citiesare living museums.
Continuing South, I would trace the beginningof Western civilization. I would make stops in Athens and Cario. Certainly a chance to see the pyramids should not be missed.
Next, I would fly east to visit the shimmering island of Ceylon. Here, the traveller finds many precious gems for sale, but thebrightest jewel of all is Ceylon itself. Leaving this island Iwould travel to Bangkok, an Oriental city of many charms.
Then, like mane other travellers, I would be drawn to Hong Kong, theshopper’s paradise.
Leaving Asia, I would load my over stuffed suitcase on aplane bound for Acapulco. In this Mexican resort, I would swim, sunbathes and eat spicy foods.
At this time it would be necessary to count my remainingtravellers checks.
If a tour of Latin America were still possible, I would wantto stop in Peru, Argentina, Brazil. But by that time mu fundswould probably have run low. So, where would my round the wouldtrip end?
For me there is only one answer: Moscow, the city Iwill never tire of calling home.
