Last year, I spent my holidays in Wales. I was travelling around by bike. Every morning I took my bike, cycled for some time, visited the villages on the way and talked to people.
My friends preferred to spend their holidays by the sea. So while I was cycling, my friends were probably sitting at the beach.
But one day, when I was talking to a farmer in a village, my mobile rang. My friends were phoning to tell me how awful the weather was by the sea. They were spending all day inside.
