I was on the train heading home feeling really excited, but at the same time pretty anxious. I had just heard that I had been selected to study sports science at an Australian university. My scholarship included everything―airfare, school fees, rent, and spending money. I was happy because I’d worked so hard to make this happen. But I started to get a little scared. Could I live in another countiy for a whole year?

Then by chance, I met my best friend from high school. I hadn’t seen Ken for ages, but I always wondered about him. It turned out that he’d been in the US for the past two years trying to become a professional golfer, and he’d just played in his first pro tournament. He told me that it was pretty tough at first because he couldn’t speak English at all, and he didn’t have any friends there. Now, he’s not only a pro golfer, but also a fluent English speaker with friends from all over the world. Ken’s dream had come true. That really inspired me, and I’m ready for my own adventure now. I’m still kind of nervous, but I know I can do it.

Shoji: Let’s talk about where we’d go if we could take a 3-week trip anywhere in the world. Any ideas, Kyoko?
Kyoko: Well, it’s hard to decide. Hmm. I know. I can imagine myself visiting Anne Frank’s house in Amsterdam, having dinner in Paris, and riding a gondola in Venice. Yeah, my dream is to travel all across Europe. I know you can buy a train pass that lets you go almost anywhere. You can see all the famous museums and eat a lot of really good food in each country. What do you think, Shoji?
Shoji: Well Kyoko, I agree that it’d be nice to travel everywhere like that, but most of your time would be spent on trains! That’s a waste of time. I wouldn’t want to spend my three weeks doing that. I’d rather stay in just one country, like Italy, instead. I want to be an architect someday, so it’d be great to go sightseeing in cities like Rome, Venice, and Florence. I also want to go to the beach. I’ve heard that Italian beaches are really beautiful. And I’m crazy about Italian food, so I wouldn’t mind eating that every day. It’s definitely better to stay in one country. Right, Yukari?
Yukari: Well, I don’t think traveling around by train is necessarily a waste of time. You might meet interesting people, and I think it would be fun to see a lot of different places. However, in my opinion, I don’t think three weeks is long enough for a trip to Europe. I’d rather go somewhere closer. My idea of a great vacation would be swimming with tropical fish, relaxing on a beach, and trying the tasty local dishes. So I’d probably want to go somewhere in Asia.
