A relaxing beach vacation may sound perfect to some, but for the more adventurous, it just isn’t exciting enough. Unless getting to the beach meant hiking through the jungle or parachuting out of an airplane. Then it might be OK.

Adventure travelers aren’t interested in plain old sightseeing or a typical beach holiday. They prefer to spend their vacations doing active, exciting, and possibly even slightly dangerous activities. They like to go to remote places that most tourists never visit. Find out if Marni and Ella are thrill seekers when it comes to travel.



1. Listen and Read - Listen to the audio and read the dialog at the same time.

Ella:  So when it comes to adventure, Marni, are you a relaxation kind of person or more of a thrill seeker?

Marni:  You mean like traveling, would I prefer just to go somewhere and actually have a vacation, or do I like to travel?

Ella:  Mm-hmm.

Marni:  I’m definitely more of an adventure traveler.

Ella:  Awesome.

Marni:  Yeah, absolutely. I think, doing it now…I mean, I think you can enjoy Paris when you’re 85 and you can barely walk, but right now is the time to run through the Amazon rainforest or go on safari in Africa or climb Mount Everest. I haven’t done that, but…

Ella:  What is one of the wildest things you’ve done on vacation?

Marni:  I actually, I went on safari last year, and that was pretty amazing. Actually, I never really thought it would be as incredible as it was. There’s just something about seeing animals in their native habitat. It was incredible. So yeah, I like to push myself when I travel. Kinda get out of my comfort zone, do some crazy things. How about you?

Ella:  I definitely like adventure, but I like to balance it out with some relaxation. I mean, I’ve done the bungee jumping and paragliding and stuff, but I definitely like to just lay out at the beach, too. So as long as there’s a good balance of both…but yeah, adventure is definitely something I seek when I go on vacation.

Marni:  Yeah, absolutely.

I’m fan of both, I prefer a relaxing vacations beside sees and also I’d like to spent part my time going on adventure.  A little amazing and astonishing time in every persons life would be vital to tolerate the repetative  rutine of life .

I agree with Marni that it is better to have an adventure travel than relax on a beach. I ‘ve never been a thrill seeker, but there was  a time when it seemed interesting to me to try something new and a bit risky, so I went to  skydiving school for that purpuse . It was really great for me to try myself in parachuting, and I’ll never forget those days.

Sometimes I dream about adventurous me. But those crazy thing are very far from my world. For me, adventure can be day at roller-coaster park, or walking in the nearest (very nearest) mountains alone or with a couple of friends, or riding on a bike somewhere i’ve never been before (not very far away from home though). I need new impressions, bright emotions, but I don’t need to do some really outstanding things to get this.

And warm beaches are great too for a week or two, because there are no such things where I live. (=
