Well, I’m going to talk about a trip I made across Australia. The transport I used was a motorbike. It wasn’t a new bike, it was - what's the word - second­hand, and I bought it because I wanted to see Australia.

I didn’t want to use public transport because I wanted to be independent. I had a month’s holiday before I started my course and I made the trip with a friend, a Chinese girl, because I was frightened of travelling alone I met her at a language school where we studied English together. We travelled along the south coast and saw some of the desert. The good thing about the journey was that we met a lot of other people who were travelling. We went to places which are difficult to reach on public transport, and the trip was quite cheap. Also, the motorbike had quite a powerful engine, so it was fast and exciting. The bad things were the rain and the heat because they made us tired. I have great memories of the trip because I felt really free. We could go where we liked. Also, we met some very friendly people and we saw a lot of interesting places I still have friends who I made during that trip. In all, I think it was the best journey I’ve ever made.
