Transport and Travel
Stephen: There she is!
Stephen: Great to see you Ash – this is Jazz.
Ashlie: Hi, nice to meet you, Jazz.
Jazz: Nice to meet you Ashlie. I have never been here before. I have always wanted to visit London.
Ashlie: Wow, this is your first visit to London – you’ve never been here before? Well, I’m
glad you could come – we’re really looking forward to showing you around.
Stephen: Come on. Let’s get going.
Ashlie: Here, let me help you with this bag. What have you got in here? It weighs a ton.
Stephen: Oh - come on. We need to get a move on.
Ashlie: Stephen’s brought his friend Jazz over to London for a few days. So we’re going to give him a tour of the city and show him the sights.
Stephen: Come on Ash - we need to get to central London for your surprise.
Ashlie: Surprise? What for me? I’ve got a surprise!
Stephen: Hi there.
Cab Driver: Hi.
Stephen: We need to get to the River Thames. Can you take us to Embankment – near the tube station?
Cab Driver: Embankment Station, OK.
Ashlie: Oh no! My bag! Where’s my bag? I can’t believe it… I’ve lost it. Damn it! I’m going to have to go back there and get it.
Stephen: Did you have it with you on the train? Are you sure you had it with you on the train?
Jazz: You had your bag on the train, definitely – you put it on the... err... How do you say that in English?
Stephen: The luggage rack – yeah. Did you put it on the luggage rack, Ash?
Ashlie: You’re right - I’m sure I had it with me on the train. Oh my gosh! My phone! My phone is in my bag. Oh, I’m going to have to go back.
Stephen: But Ashlie, you’ll miss the surprise.
Ashlie: Oh, how annoying! You guys go on ahead and I’ll catch you up later.
Stephen: Are you sure?
Ashlie: Yes, don’t worry. I’ll give you a call later.
Jazz: Oh gosh! This is an amazing city. What is that building over there?
Stephen: Oh, that’s the Royal Albert Hall... I hope we’re going to get there on time.
Jazz: The traffic in London is terrible. Is the traffic always this bad?
Stephen: Ah - you should see it in rush hour. Sometimes it’s quicker to walk. In fact, maybe we should… are you OK with walking?
Jazz: Is it a long way?
Stephen: It’s about ten minutes' walk to the flat from here.
Jazz: OK, that’s fine. I think we can manage with these bags.
Stephen: Can you pull over here, please?
Stephen: It’s only half an hour to the surprise – we’ll have to hurry.
Jazz: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait, I want to take a photo. Wow, I have never seen anything like this before. Where are we? What is this place called?
Stephen: This is Piccadilly Circus. There’s always loads of tourists round here.
Jazz: Wow, I must take a photograph, just one minute.
Stephen: When we get to Trafalgar Square, we can stop for a quick rest. Come on. Jazz…
Stephen: What’s that? It’s a phone. Is that your phone?
Jazz: Hey, I don’t believe it. Look what I’ve found! Isn’t this Ashlie’s bag? It’s her phone!
Stephen: What? Oh no! We had it with us all along. Poor Ashlie. I’m going to answer it.
Stephen: Hello. This isn’t Ashlie – I’m Stephen, I’m Ashlie’s brother.
Stephen: But this is Ashlie’s phone.
Ashlie: What are you doing with my phone?
Stephen: Who’s that?
Ashlie: Stephen it’s me – Ashlie – Where are you?
Stephen: Ash, we’ve found your stuff. We had it with us all the time.
Ashlie: Oh - I can’t believe I came all the way back here for nothing.
Stephen: Yes, don’t worry, we’ve got your bag. Everything‘s safe.
Ashlie: Thank goodness it’s all turned up. I’m so relieved.
Stephen: Right, well get here as quick as you can. We’re going to drop the bags off at the flat.
Ashlie: Great. And thank you!
Stephen: Meet you at the Embankment. Don’t be late. Remember, I’ve got a surprise for you!
Ashlie: OK, I’ll see you later. Bye!
