George Moore

Todd: I can’t wait to be served those great little sandwiches by some waiter in formal dress.

Jason: Yeah, it will be a real kick to feel like an English lord for a few hours.

Todd: We better make reservations tomorrow, because all the guidebooks suggest as far ahead as possible tak wcześnie jak to możliwe.

Jason: For sure I’ll handle it. Załatwię to.

Todd: Good. And I’ll book the “Crillon”. I’m so glad they have this special set menu.

Jason: Me too. Of course fifty dollars for lunch is no giveaway darmocha, but for a five course meal at one of the world’s most lavish bogatej and famous restaurants…

Todd: Truly once in a lifetime material.

Jason: I’m really looking forward to Geneva too.

Todd: I know. It’s supposed to be such a gorgeous city. I’m so glad we found space at that small hotel for seventy dollars.

Jason: I know, since the average przeciętny hotel room in the city goes for more than $250.00.

Todd: Switzerland sure ain’t cheap nie jest tania, so I hope it lives up to to jest zgodne z the guidebooks.

Jason: I’m glad we decided to spring for the five star hotel “National” in Lucerne, after our stay at those other fleabags.

Todd: Yeah me too, but we have no choice with our resources.

Jason: Of course, but I’m also glad that we budgeted for some decent places przyzwoitych miejsc in Munich, Baden-Baden, and Vienna.

Todd: All in all we’ve planned O.K. It was so nice of “the rents” to stake us on this trip postawili nam tę wycieczkę.

Jason: For sure. Well only a week to go, and we are out of here i nas tu nie będzie.
