When people �(travel) then they �(need) many1 things.

First of all2 they �(need) to know3 where they �(want) to go. It �(be) not easy. There �(be) a lot of places in the world that people can visit, that sometimes we cannot decide4 where to go. In winter people �(like) to go to warm5 countries6, but in summer they �(like) to go to cold countries. It �(be) very good that we �(have) such chance7 to go wherever8 we �(like).

When you finally9 �(know) where you �(want) to go, you �(need) a ticket. Sometimes a person �(want) to go by plane, but sometimes he �(want) to go by bus or by car. It �(depend) on many things. Planes �(be) expensive, but they �(be) fast10. Buses �(be) cheaper, but it �(take) much time to get from one city to another11.

Another thing that �(be) necessary - hotel. A person usually �(book) a hotel in advance12. It �(be) a good idea to book a room in advance because sometimes hotels �(be) fully booked13 and it �(be) difficult14 or impossible15 to get a room there.

When you �(have) a ticket and a hotel, then you �(need) to pack your baggage. You �(must) take your passport and some money too. It �(be) a good idea to take your camera16, too.

If you �(have) a lot of money, then you �(not/need) take all things that �(be) necessary because you can buy them.
