May 9th, 2016

Episode 389 of 463 episodes

Make your next vacation more active and exciting. Learn different ways to do that on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:26 Explanations: 3:48 Fast dialog: 19:20 Emma: Are you ready? Ricardo: Sure, but why are you dressed like that? I thought we were going to play golf with Kareem and Karen. Emma: I told them we’re going rock climbing instead. Ricardo: I was really looking forward to a game of golf. Emma: You play golf all the time. How often do you get the chance to do other outdoor activities, such as horseback riding and zip-lining. We can do both this afternoon if you’re up for it. Ricardo: I thought the point of this vacation was to rest and recharge. Emma: We do need to recharge, but what we need is excitement, not rest. Maybe Kareem and Karen will want to join us tomorrow. Ricardo: Why? What are we doing tomorrow? Emma: How about a watersport, maybe kayaking, windsurfing, or water skiing? Too bad we can’t go scuba diving, but we can do some snorkeling. Ricardo: I like the idea of spending some time on the water, but whale watching is more my speed. Emma: Don’t you want to feel the wind through your hair and the excitement pumping through your veins? Ricardo: I didn’t know you were such an adrenaline junkie. Emma: Guilty as charged. I’m going to take skydiving lessons next month. Want to join me? Ricardo: I consider skydiving a spectator sport! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
