Welcome to another practice English conversation about planning a trip with Dialogue Frog. So we're gonna talk about this some more because I really, really, really wanna plan a trip.
You know, I'm starting to believe that you wanna plan a trip.
I do! How did you know?
Just, just a hunch.
It was a good hunch. You have good intuition.
Yeah. But yeah, so Chicago, right? I wanna go to Chicago. So, now I'm starting to think about logistics. So, how do I get there? When should I go? 'Cause I have to take off of work. I have to plan enough time to, to ask for time off, um, to get a vacation. So, I'm thinking maybe I'll do a four day trip.
But Chicago is kind of up north and it gets cold relatively early in the year.
But also in the summertime, 'cause it's in the Midwest, the US Midwest, it can get hot and humid, I think, during the summertime.
So, I think the best time to go might be in this, probably fall, maybe early fall?
The shoulder seasons.
The shoulder season. The shoulder season being like spring or fall, right?
Yeah. So, I think I might try to plan for a four-day trip to Chicago in September.
That-that'll be good. I should look to see if there's any concerts and then I can go with you and then we can have a fun time.
That'd be fun. Yeah. Oh, I bet Rachel and Jeff would have fun too.
Yep. For sure.
Yep. And then we can decide together, 'cause I, I talked before about how there's like famous restaurants and stuff. There's so many restaurants. Like, I started looking at it again 'cause I was getting excited about planning a trip. There's a lot to choose from. So, I think we need to decide on our hotel. We need to pick a hotel kind of as our, our center of activity, and then from around the hotel, maybe choose the restaurants and places where we wanna go.
Yeah. That sounds like a good plan.
And they have, I think they have a good subway system and all that there. Good public transportation. That's one of the things like when you're planning a trip, like you have to make sure, especially in the U.S. that you have a plan for getting around that town because sometimes towns don't have good public transportation, so you have to rent a car.
But like last time when I was, I took a trip to Tucson, they had very limited public transportation. Um, that wasn't really where I had to be in that town. It didn't really serve me well. So.
Hm. I see.
We can plan for that this time.
That's why I always rent a helicopter when I go places, because just never know when you're gonna have to land on top of a building.
Well, I mean anymore, you, you should really just get a jetpack.
