# telling your friend about your trip
--Hey Gary, how have you been?
--I'm good, Karen. How was your trip to Alabama?
--Oh, I don't know where to start. It was awesome! Alabama was such a beautiful place and I met my grandma after a very long time!
--So, tell me something about what you did there.
--Oh sure. I visited some wine farms to see how they make wine. I also went to some wine bottling plants. In the evening, I would go on treks. I had an amazing time!
--That is so cool. Did you try some wine too?
--Yes. I tasted different types, but I didn't drink too much. My folks were around.
--That's really nice. I guess I should really go to Alabama someday!
--Yes. You should do that, Gary. You will definitely love the place.
--Sure. Maybe next time you can tell me when you're going and we'll go together!
