Highlands and Islands
To the north of Edinburgh and Glasgow are the Highlands of Scotland: mountains with few trees, wild deer and many sheep. It’s one of the most picturesque places in the world.
The Highlanders, the people of the area – are very devoted to their country with its striking beauty, though it is not so prosperous as other places in Britain. Most of these people are farmers and fishermen. Scotland does a lot of fish trading. On the small islands to the north and west of Scotland there are fishing and farming villages. The houses in the villages look modest but they have to be strong enough to keep people warm in winter when cold winds blow from the sea. Some of the people still speak Gaelic, the ancient Celtic language of Scotland.

1. To the north of Edinburgh …
2. It’s one of …

Every year a lot of people all over the world spend their holidays travelling. They travel to see other countries and continents, to discover different ways of life, to meet different people and to practise foreign languages. It goes without saying that travelling broadens the mind. No wonder that a lot of people enjoy visiting new places.
Today people have lots of good reasons to travel. Travelling has always been a part of people's education. The best way to study geography is to travel and the best way to get to know and understand the traditions and customs of different people is to speak to them. Besides, travelling is a good way to practise foreign languages.
Today tourism is the world's second largest industry. Many places that once were remote are now part of package tours. Tourism has been industrialized: landscapes, cultures and cuisines are consumer goods displayed in travel leaflets. In recent years tourism has really taken off.
The Mediterranean shores have a resident population of 130 million, but this increases to 230 million each summer because of the tourists. In Spain, France, Italy and most of Greece there is no undeveloped coastline left. In Notre Dame in Paris 108 visitors enter each minute during opening hours.
