I wish I could go travelling again

Listen to the song once.

Decide on what travel-related problems the singer mentions.

Feeling tired after a long-haul flight
Rude waiters
Flight overbooking
Losing a suitcase
Being robbed
Almost missing a flight
Being irritated by a travelling companion
Disappointing food
Bad weather
Unsatisfactory accommodation
Crowded beaches

Listen again and find words in the song which mean:

1.       Sunglasses noun (informal)
2.       Drink, taking very small amounts each time verb
3.       A sheet of strong cloth that stretches out from above a door or window to keep off the sun or rain noun
4.       To become lost /stolen
5.       Not impressed, excited or worried about sth, because you have seen or experienced it many times before adj
6.       Go somewhere suddenly and quickly verb
7.       Not perfect; not working correctly adj
8.       Too expensive, costing more than it is worth adj
9.       ~ of sth, completely lacking in sth
