Many places, such as large houses and castles（城堡）, are closed early in winter. However, if you are interested in museums, art galleries or theatres, winter may be a good time to visit.
Be prepared. If you are a student, it’s a good idea to apply for（申请）an International Student Identity Card（身份证）.With this card, you can save a lot of money. You can get the card from your local student travel office, and you can also call（44）-08708-413224 to get it.

Some people think only school children do not agree with their parents, however, it is not true.
Communication is a problem for parents and children of all ages. If it’s hard for you to communicate with your parents, don’t worry about it. Here are some advice for you to bridge the generation gap（消除代沟）.
Don’t argue（争辩）with your parents. Don’t get to your parents when you are angry. Your parents probably won’t consider your ideas if you are shouting at them. And you can’t express yourself well if you are angry. Go to someplace to cool off. Make sure you understand why you are unhappy. Then think about what you want to say to your parents. If you don’t think you can speak to them at the moment, try writing a letter.
Try to reach a compromise（和解）. Perhaps you and your parents disagree on something. You can keep your disagreement and try your best to accept each other. Michael’s mother didn’t agree with him about buying a motorcycle. They argued over it. But they finally came to a compromise. Michael bought the motorcycle, but only drove it on certain days.
Of course, your parents might refuse to compromise on something. In these situations, it is especially important to show love and respect（尊敬）to them. Showing respect will keep your relationship strong.
Talk about your values. The values of your parents are probably different from those of your own. Tell your parents what you care about, and why. Understanding your values might help them see your purposes in life.
A good relationship with your parents can make you a better and happier person. It is worth having a try!

20. Go to Thailand（泰国）—it’s a great place to spend your holidays. I spent my last summer vacation in Thailand. It’s really a beautiful place to travel to.
Thai people are very helpful. They helped me a lot during traveling. I enjoyed outdoor activities like swimming, biking and diving（潜水）. All of these were wonderful. I visited many temples（寺庙）and learned about their history. Their history is very old and interesting. It’s very different from ours.
I shopped at the special market. It’s on a river and everyone sells their goods（货物）from their boats. Thai food is delicious, too! I also learned a little Thai boxing（拳击）from their schools. You’ll love Thailand, too.

23.阅读下面短文，根据短文内容完成表格中所缺信息，每空一词。 “A friend walks in when the rest of the world walks out.” Sometimes in life, you find a special friend: someone who changes your life just by being part of it; someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop; someone who believes you that there really is an open door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you are sad, and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirits（精神）and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. If you have a forever friend, it will be easier for you to get through the hard times and the sad times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you, encourages（鼓励）you, holds your hands and tells you that everything is going to be OK. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy because you need not worry. You have a forever friend for life and forever has no end.
