Toni: Well. I went to Bali. It's a wonderful place with beautiful beaches and sceneries.

Mirna: Wow. It sounds great. What did you do there?

Toni: My family and I spent four nights there in a bungalow in Kuta beach. I had a great vacation there. I swam and surfed on the beach. I also played football and sand with my brother.

Mirna: What else did you do there?

Toni: The next morning I visited another small island around Bali on a boat. It was a great experience to see many beautiful places and have a talk with tourists there.

Mirna: What did you do before you left Bali?

Toni: On the last day, I went to the merchandise shops and bought some stuffs there. I bought shirts, shorts, and also traditional clothes. Unfortunately I couldn't afford to buy a surfing board because it was too expensive.
