You must be in good health and prepared to go through a period of body exercises. This could be the beginning of a lifetime of mountain climbing adventure.

The world Sea Trip of a Lifetime
Our World Sea Trip of 2008 will be unlike any holiday you have ever been on before. Instead of one hotel after another, with all its packing and unpacking, waiting and travelling, you just go to bed in one country and wake up in another.

On board the ship, you will be well taken care of. Every meal will be first-class and every cabin likes your home.

During the trip, you can rest on desk,enjoy yourself in the games rooms and in the evening dance to our musical team and watch our wonderful play.

You will visit all the places most people only dream about---from Acapulco and Hawaii to Tokyo and Hong Kong.

For a few thousand, all you’ve ever hoped for can be yours.

学校放假期间,英国德文郡的旅馆现在还有空房。这个“家外之家”(指宾至如归的地方)十分舒适、融洽,靠近美丽而宁静的乡村,离海边只有一段车程。食物简单但很好。孩子和宠物可以入内。淡季有打折。

只要花几千英镑,所有您曾希望的都将属于您。
