Holiday problems

John wants to go on holiday with his best friend David.

But there is a problem.

John wants to go to Germany, and David wants to go to Denmark.

They cannot agree on the answer.

"I think we should go to Germany because they have amazing food," John says to David.

"But Denmark has amazing wildlife," David replies.

"But Germany has fantastic tourist attractions," John says.

"Denmark has fantastic tourist attractions as well," David replies.

Then, suddenly, John has an idea.

"I know what we can do, we can visit Germany for one week, then we can go on the train and visit Denmark for one week. Do you like this idea?" asks John.

"Yes, I love this idea, we can visit both countries then we are both happy," David says.

"Perfect, let me find the information we need for a great holiday to Germany, and you find the information we need for a great holiday to Denmark, do you agree?" says John.

"Yes, I agree. I am too excited to wait, so let us start now," replies David.
