Cruising Round the Mediterranean

onderful weather, masses of interesting things
to see and do, and su!erb comfort." #hat was
what $ told the tra%el agent when she asked what
kind of holiday $ was looking for. &ow about a
'editerranean cruise(" she said. )nd that*s how $
found myself, two months later, aboard the cruise
shi! Venus.
From the moment $ set foot on the shi!, $ felt
!am!ered. #he !ublic areas were quite luxurious
with their elegant furnishings and wood+!anelled
walls. #hey reminded me of some of the scenes
from the film Titanic, and $ half ex!ected ,eonardo
de -a!rio to a!!ear at any moment. 'y own cabin
was the last word in luxury.
.n the first day, $ ex!lored the shi! to get
my bearings and to find out about on+board
entertainment acti%ities. $ made a mental note of
which ones to go for, and what to a%oid. 'ost of
the young !eo!le seemed to be hanging around
the gym and %irtual+reality centre. $ %isited both
briefly, but quickly went back on deck. /o way
was $ going back to 0ngland after this cruise
without a tan that would be the en%y of my friends1
$ s!ent hours basking beside the swimming !ool,
taking an occasional di! in the water for exercise,
or briefly 2oining one of the aerobics sessions. $
strolled around the decks, sto!!ing from time to
time to lean on the rail and gaze out to sea.
)nd while $ en2oyed solitary moments on the
u!!er deck, don*t think for a minute that taking
a cruise by myself im!lied that $ remained alone.
#hough men a!!eared to be in the minority,
there were !lenty of singles on board and no
lack of com!any. $n fact, $ made se%eral casual
acquaintances and formed friendshi!s with a
cou!le of fascinating fellow !assengers of both
sexes, with whom $3%e ke!t in touch.
4ome of the more ex!erienced cruise !assengers
$ met told me that cruise shi!s are famed for the
quality of their cuisine, and the Venus was no
exce!tion. $ sam!led e%erything the chef had to
offer. 'y fa%ourites were the 0nglish afternoon
teas with dainty sandwiches, fresh !astries and hot
buttered scones. $ can still hear the waitress, sil%er
tea!ot in hand, asking, 5ould you !refer milk or
lemon, madam(*
#here was a dazzling %ariety of e%ening acti%ities.
$n my 67 days on board $ 5only* managed two
concerts, a ,as 8egas+style cabaret, a magic show,
a lecture on wines, a disco, and a 97s night of
singing and dancing.
:ut the crowning glory of the cruise was
undoubtedly the tours. #he short sto!s we made
at historic !orts of call satisfied my cra%ing for
tra%el and !erfectly suited my tem!erament. $
tend to become im!atient with extended stays
in any one s!ot. From a hillto! castle at 8igo in
4!ain, $ en2oyed a !anoramic %iew across the bay.
$n the quaint, narrow streets of ;alma, 'a2orca,
e%en sou%enir sho!!ing !ro%ed a !leasure. .ne
!lace $ would ha%e been ha!!y to s!end longer
than the one allotted day was the )driatic !ort of
<ubro%nic, with its mar%ellous old city walls.
8enice !ro%ided the grand finale before we
returned to the =>. 4ailing slowly along the canals
in a gondola, !eering at 4t. 'ark*s 4quare through
the misty early morning light was magical. $ was
!leased that $ had forced myself to rise at the
crack of dawn and see 8enice, quiet, without the
usual adoring crowds. $ found the city as alluring
as e%er.
.ther holidays that $*%e had were fun. 4ome were
more restful, most considerably chea!er than a
cruise, but none were in any way com!arable. $t*s
going to take a year of scrim!ing and sa%ing to
!ay off the cruise on the Venus but, for my idea of
hea%en, it was worth it.

You are going to read an article about a model. 4e%en sentences ha%e been remo%ed from the article. -hoose from the
sentences A-H the one which fits each ga! (9-15). #here is one extra sentence which you do not need to use.
Big is Beautiu!
What makes model Kate Dillon different from other fashion models?
.%erweight >ate D that*s what fellow students called her
at school. 4o, after watching a tele%ision film about eating
disorders, >ate <illon, an unha!!y teenager, decided to
star%e herself. :y the age of sixteen, after
losing A7 !ounds, she did indeed ha%e more friends and
was s!otted by a scout for a modelling agency, where she
subsequently embarked on a highly successful career in
modelling. <illon was soon featured on the co%ers of to!
fashion magazines. &er dream had come true, but it was
to be short+li%ed.
>ate had turned into one of those glamorous, slender
models seen in magazines, on #8 and in films. Eirls all
o%er the world long for such an image and some will do
almost anything to achie%e it. -onstantly
worrying about her weight, >ate was also feeling ill and
run down. )fter se%en years, she began to wonder if
being slim was the only measure of beauty.
<uring a !hotogra!hy session for the exclusi%e
fashion magazine Harer!s Ba"aar, >ate*s glamorous
life suddenly lost its charm. as it all
worthwhile( 4omewhere along the way, hadn*t she lost
sight of all the other things that were im!ortant in life(
#his realisation changed >ate*s life. 4he ga%e u! modelling
and started going out, dancing, and ha%ing a good time.
4he soon began !utting on a little weight, although
she was careful to eat sensibly, with the guidance of a
nutritionist. 4he slowly gained confidence,
became comfortable with her new lifestyle and at ease
with her a!!earance.
>ate was determined to do it her way, and again her life
took an unex!ected turn. hen a friend suggested that
she go back to modelling, >ate realised that this was a
real !ossibility. ith a more natural look and her newly
found self+confidence, she was engaged on the s!ot by a
to! agency D this time as a size+6B model.
4he has established a new norm for beauty, where being
as skinny as a rake is no longer the only criterion for an
attracti%e woman.
<escribing herself as a model with a %oice," >ate has
been a key s!eaker on eating disorders and the female
self+image at !laces such as &ar%ard =ni%ersity. 4he
s!eaks out against the media*s narrow conce!t of beauty.
)ccording to <illon, the media feed women images of an
im!ossible ideal which cause anxiety so as to sell them
the so+called solution" in the form of diets. 0%en
messages telling women to be themsel%es are often
mixed.
>ate is o!timistic that attitudes are changing and that
society is mo%ing towards a more o!en ideal of beauty, but
feels there is still a long way to go. 'odifying !eo!le*s
attitudes takes time, and >ate does not !romise young
women instant acce!tance. #he first ste! is
for women to make a decision to li%e by their own
standards rather than trying to fulfill the ideals of others.
)s >ate says, hat*s really cool is to be who you are."

Pri)a! *uest
#re you ad$enturous? %arah &airns asked four
articiants about Disco$ery &hannel!s annual race.
A
B
#esting yourself to the limit, challenging
nature, racing and ad%enture" was how Pau!
described the exciting annual ex!edition race
called ;rimal Huest. ;aul had tried his hand at
all the skills needed for the contest long before
he actually took !art in it. $ learned to ride
horses and mountain bikes at an early age and
when $ was 69, <ad finally took me climbing.
$t still took me years to build u! the necessary
strength," he told us. #he race co%ers o%er B77
miles of extremely rough terrain, and includes
ra!!elling and whitewater rafting. You need
to kee! going round the clock for anything
between six to 67 days, and you*re fighting
exhaustion most of the time. #his year the race
was in the desert, and the extreme heat was
es!ecially brutal. :ut, $ get a kick out of any
s!ort that in%ol%es danger and calls for
stamina and a lot of will!ower. $t*s a challenge
to human endurance."
He!en admitted that she wasn*t always an
asset to her team. $*d done quite a bit of
mountain biking before, but there were
sections between check!oints that we rode
across which were inters!ersed with !arts
where the bikes had to be carried. #hat meant
that, at each stage, we had to dismantle our
bikes, and then reassemble them. $*m what you
would call technically challenged, so $ held the
team back. 'y three teammates were great,
though. hoe%er was ready first always ga%e
me a hand." &elen, ex!erienced in the water,
was ha!!y that she was able to reci!rocate in
the kayaking !art of the race, a skill in which
her fellow teammates were less com!etent. 4he
managed to sa%e them quite a bit of time by
choosing the fastest !ossible course through the
ri%er and hel!ing them a%oid underwater rocks.
#hese are %irtually in%isible, but a skilled
kayaker can recognise them by the slight
changes in the ri%er*s flow.
C
D
$t*s difficult for +and, to !ut her finger on what
attracted her most about ;rimal Huest. 'aybe
it was a lo%e of extreme s!orts," she told me,
or growing u! in a mountainous area in -anada
where climbing and canoeing were always
!art of our li%es." #he beauty and s!lendour
of the course, which took them through
stunning desert canyons to uns!oilt mountain
trails, made her feel it was well worth it. 4arah
also admitted that being a woman had something
to do with it. $ lo%ed the idea of a challenging
race in a wild and remote location, where both
sexes had to be re!resented on e%ery team. $
really belie%e that ;rimal Huest makes for better
human beings, not 2ust s!orts!eo!le. You need
!erfect communication with your teammates,
mutual consideration and total dedication to
the mission at hand. $ think you come home
from the ex!erience a more com!assionate
!erson, at work, with your family and in other
relationshi!s."
=!on reaching -heck!oint A9, Da-id and his
teammates were informed that, before they
could continue, they would ha%e to com!lete
an orienteering course. #his was a route of eight
and a half miles which they had to co%er while
finding !oints shown on a ma!, in territory
that is es!ecially difficult to na%igate. #hey
hadn*t counted on this obstacle, and as it turned
out, some other teams o!ted for an eight+hour
!enalty rather than attem!ting it. &owe%er, one
of the team had once been a scout and
remembered orienteering to get us through this
!art in under fi%e hours. .n the se%enth day,
we were still well ahead," he told us. .ur
!erformance was outstanding. e*d made good
time on the mountain bike sections and there
wasn*t a flash flood in sight when we waded
through a ri%er bed." #hen, on the eighth day,
misfortune struck. /ell s!rained an ankle so she
couldn*t ride her bike. #here was no way she
could get to the finishing line, which meant we
