There are a lot of different things people do in life.
Well...in fact, simply waking up and still be alive to live another day is the biggest thrill.
What else is there that really makes you feel alive?

I can think think of a lot of things:

- Walking along the beach
- Traveling
- Playing a musical instrument
- Singing
- Playing a sport
- Walking in the mountains

- Riding a bicycle in the counrtyside
- Doing Taichi or Yoga
- Cooking
- Going to the gym
- Going camping
- Swimming
- Running
- Writing
- Painting
- Photography
- Eating delicious food
- Dreaming
- Being with friends
- Making love
- Getting married and forming a family

Oh my God......there are so many things you can do to enjoy life and be happy

So, what do you like to do? Perhaps you like doing a lot of things....like me.


One of the things that I love doing is riding my motorcycle in the countryside, in the hills, taking photographs and visiting remote country villages.

I like doing a lot of things....but something I enjoy is riding my classic custom motorcycle because she is beautiful and I like to feel the wind as I accelerate and the sun on my face.
Of course, you can ride a bicycle and feel the same thing....but it´s very different.

In a car you are inside a box. You see things passing by in a different way....and it can be boring.  

Riding a motrorcycle you are moving outside, and so you feel more connected with everything around you.

I don´t like to ride sport motorcycles because I don´t like to ride fast. 

I like to ride my motorcycle enjoying that special moment of what I am doing, seeing and feeling....and to do that one has to ride nice and easy.

Como veis uso el gerundio en el texto. Hay muchos verbos que se usan siempre en gerundio.

How about going to the cinema tonight.  : Que te parece ir al cine esta noche?    

I´m hungry. How about eating Chinese food? : Tengo hambre. Que te parece comer comida china?

Nice and easy = (Expresion)  = con tranquilidad
It´s important to eat nice and easy. Some people eat to fast.
It´s better to ride your motorcycle nice and easy  = Es mejor ir en moto con tranquilidad

Once upon a time a widower lived with his two daughters. They were always curious about everything and were also very intelligent.
His daughters were always asking their father a lot of questions.
Sometimes he was able to answer their questions and other times it was impossible.

Of course, the father wanted the best education for his daughters.
Therefore he decided to send his girls on vacation to a very wise man who lived alone high up in a mountain.
This man always answered any kind of questions.

As the girls were so smart, they decided to ask a question which the wise man wouldn´t be able to answer.
One of the girls had an idea for a question.
One of the sisters caught a blue butterfly and told her sister to hold it in her hand and then ask the wise man if the butterfly was alive or dead. This way anyway he answers.... it will be wrong.

Image result for images: blue butterfly

So they went to the man to ask this question:
"Wise man, I´m holding a blue butterfly in my hand.
If you say the butterfly is dead, I will open my hand and let the butterfly fly, but if you say the butterfly is alive, I will squish and kill the butterfly.
Very camly the wise man said, "That depends on you...she is completely is in your hands"

The moral is that this is the way our life is, our present and our future.
We must never blame anyone when something goes wrong.
We are responsible for our achievements and our failures in life.
Our life is in our hands, just like the blue butterfly.
It´s up to us to choose what to do with the blue butterfly...let her fly or kill her.

- To go wrong  = salir mal
- It´s up to us  = es nuestra decision

To learn more vocabulary, look up words you don´t know in the dictionary and write them down in your notebook

Verbos frasales:
- Look up = buscar algo en el dicionario
- Write down  = apuntar
