If you fail in your mission, you might spontaneously combust, burst into flames, be jet-ported to Mars, or, you might just live happily ever after.

Don’t risk bursting into flames, if I were in your shoes, I would accept this mission. Good Luck! Can you match the pictures with the appropriate film genres? Documentary, Horror, Animation, Western, Action, Musical, Science Fiction, Romantic Comedy, Thriller

To sit around

to sit aroundTo sit around means to sit in a place doing nothing special.  Another common expression which means the same thing is: to hang around/about.

For example:

Question: What did you do at that weekend?

Answer:  Nothing special, I just sat around on Saturday, and on Sunday, I hung about with friends in a local café chatting about sport.

5* hotel, tent, hammock?

hammockAn important part of organising a holiday is to find somewhere to stay. Luxury might be your cup of tea, so a 5 star hotel would be suitable, or you might want to ‘rough it’ and sleep in a tent.  My tastes change depending on the type of trip I am taking. For example, in 2000 I took a 2 week road trip around France and slept outdoors in a tent under the stars. When I was in Costa Rica on a safari, I slept in a hammock, and when I was sailing from Australia to Sri Lanka I slept in a tiny cabin.

However, if I had more time and money, I would definitely stay in an underwater hotel, sleep in a space station, or try an ice hotel. How about you? Where is the most unusual place you have ever stayed?
