0:42 Yes, I’ve just come back from Hawaii.
0:45 Hawaii! Wow, that sounds exotic! I’ve heard that Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Na Pali Coast are amazing.
0:54 Yes, I agree. The islands are so green and the water’s so blue.
0:59 The beaches go on forever and the food is fantastic. I’ll always remember this vacation..

1:42 Well, you should book your ticket now.
1:45 You must be kidding! There are still 6 months left until Christmas.
1:50 Yes, but seats will be full by the end of October. You shouldn’t wait if you’ve made up your mind.
