Yes, of course I love camping since I used to be a boy scout when I was young. I do remember a night at a camp in some mountain. I saw the Milky Way and the full of stars in the sky! It was breathtaking, I'll never ever forget the scene! Unfortunately, my wife, like Julia prefers to staying at a hotel though....

I've never been camping it doesn't applie to me, I prefer staying in hotels.

I don't like camping and for my holidays and traveling I always stay at the hotel.
Because, the all mod cons is there.

Sammy: There are great facilities. There are lots of sports facilities.
The sentence in transcript. There are two plural nouns 'sports facilities' together here. I see it at first here. I wonder how is strange ,i do not understand that. what is the diffience from sport facilities and sports facilities ?

Hello mitykg,

The construction here is [adjective + noun] and the word sports (or sport) is functioning as an adjective. There is no difference in meaning but I would say that sports is more common.

Yes, I like camping. For a lot of years I went to a seaside camping in Toscany with my husband and my children. It was very funn. For a little time, when I go on holiday, I like book a hotel or a small flat, because they are more comfortable.

Yes, I do. I'd like camping in Iran's northern forests.

I've never camped..... so it's a tempting activity for me!
I want to stay under a stadium of stars!

Yes, I do really like camping. It depends of the place where I travel to.

I like camping if there are wooden huts but not tens. Usually campsites are situated near by the river or in the forest. So that is realy always amaizing.
