Hi Jim!

-Hey Rachel! How was your trip?

It was pretty good. Thanks for asking. I really needed to get away.

-Australia is so far away, though. Did you have to stop over anywhere on your way?

We did, yes. We stopped over in Singapore for an hour. I was happy that the first flight got in on time.

-That’s really lucky! The last time I travelled, my flight was delayed. It took off 3 hours later than the scheduled time!

Oh no! I bet you were happy to get off that flight!

-I was, yeah. And how was your hotel?

It was beautiful. We checked in right on time and the service was lovely.

-I’m glad!
