✏️  Enfoque: personal

💯  Truco: tono ameno y muchas frases hechas



Introduction: captamos al lector y referenciamos las preguntas del enunciado

– Apertura pegadiza: close your eyes for a second and picture that very treasured moment that is the first day of holidays: no alarm clocks, obligations, small talk…

– Parafrasea lo que te preguntan: plenty of unusual destinations offer this, and St. Albans is one I had the great pleasure of visiting last year. Relating to this, such locations’ lack of crowds usually equate to restful holidays.


Body: explicamos las cosas que nos han pedido

– Introduce el tema y contesta las preguntas con datos interesantes, ejemplos e incluso experiencias personales: having read a number of reviews about its peaceful ambiance, my husband and I anticipated a pleasing experience in the Southern English village of St. Albans – a considerable understatement, as we later learned. No sooner did we arrive in a sunny July evening than we were welcomed by a picture-postcard setting. Can you imagine?

– Contesta a las preguntas: after those utterly memorable days I was reminded of how superb an option unconventional places make: moderate costs, full availability of tours, no or few queues and best of all: serenity. Popular though big capital cities are, even the most parochial must admit that opting out of them is especially worthwhile when travelling with your children or significant other because of the lack of crowds. On a personal note, I feel that avoiding multitudes ultimately leads to a more satisfying experience which would otherwise be defined by noise pollution, damage of the environment and above all, an oppressive atmosphere.


Conclusion: nos posicionamos en el asunto, repetimos brevemente lo dicho y cerramos de forma positiva y entretenida

– Repite brevemente tu opinión y tus preguntas: all in all, I am sure most readers will agree that choosing less commonplace holiday destinations results in a tranquil, more inexpensive and priceless stay, which I for one highly recommend hands down. Plus, we will always have Paris, won’t we?

To begin with, I’m sure most readers will agree with me when I say that chasing your dreams is a surefire way to create your desired future. In my own case…

First off, even the most parochial must admit that renting electrical bikes is likely to walk away with first prize: they’re affordable, get you to your destinations at the drop of a hat and who doesn’t want to get a little exercise and preserve nature all the while?

In short, I needn’t run my mouth any longer: bycicle rental is to me the best way to get around. Not only are they extremely convenient, but also environmentally and exercise-friendly. Bike on!

Be it as it may, after this and other dicey experiences I’ve come to realise that if thoughtful, risks are ultimately really positive.
