To have a heart of gold is a common idiom which means: to be kind or generous or friendly
EG:My mother has a heart of gold: she is always willing to help a stranger and donate to charity . Furthermore, she has supported me with every good, and every terrible decision I have made in my life. So, do you have a heart of gold or a heart of stone?
Are you suffering from the blues? Do you fancy a getaway to a chilled-out, unspoilt tropical island? Or, are you more culture vulture than beach bum?
Having a ball, having a blast!
I personally have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I´m really keen on sunbathing at the beach with a mojito in one hand and a trashy novel in the other hand. However, on the other hand, I´m nuts about learning about the history, traditions and culture of a new city. In fact, if I had more time and money, I would definitely take more city breaks. However, truth be told adventure holidays are my real cup of tea. I love danger, risk and a challenge. Indeed, the last time I went scuba diving I was scared stiff but I loved every second. Bring on the adventure, let the good times roll!
Of course, it’s possible that your idea of having fun is completely different to mine. So, if you could go on any type of holiday, what would it be?
