**Example: 
Last year I traveled to Greece. I was waiting for my suitcases in the baggage area for so long that I thought they had lost my suitcases. A tour guide picked me up but he was 20 minutes late! I was backpacking though Greece, so I stayed at cheap hotels, which has a lot of disadvantages because often they are dirty and not safe. When I departed form Greece, the take off was horrible because there was a storm outside and the turbulence was really strong. I went to my travel agent to complain, but she didn't provide any help. What a terrible trip!
