I need some assistance with these assignment. a great vacation Thank you in advance for the help! My mother told me she had a college friend who lived and worked there. My Aunt Amelia, what I called my mother’s friend, had extended an invitation to stay over at her farm and house in Bangkok. Since I knew my parents would like to see the country too, I planned to bring them with me on this trip. Fortunately, I was able to find an airline company which offered cheap tickets to Southeast Asia if bought several months before the travel date. A plus about this arrangement was when I told one of my close friends about it, she decided to come along with us as well. It proved to be a good idea because I knew my parents would not let me go around Bangkok alone. I would be forced to spend time with the ‘oldies’. .
Since my aunt wanted to spend more time with my parents, my Mom and Dad left for Bangkok a week earlier than my friend and I. Looking back, it would not have been such a bad idea, after all, to leave when my parents did. At least, the early trip would have saved my friend and I a lot of stress. When my friend and I got to the airport, there was a long line of people waiting to be checked in. Too excited about our first time to travel together, we fell in line and started talking about being in Thailand the next day and the places we wanted to see. With around ten or fifteen people, including us, waiting to be checked-in, an airline personnel suddenly informed us that they had overbooked the flight. To make up for their error, they were going to give us a hotel voucher for the night and another voucher with 1-year validity for any trip of equal value or lesser value. This was all great since I was going to get a free trip. However, it also meant a day not getting to see the sights in another country. .
