Speaker one: Am I OK for Leicester Square?
Speaker two: No, you’ll have to jump out at the park and get a 12 there.
Speaker one: Could you tell me when we get there?
Speaker two: It’s quite a way yet, but I’ll tell you in good time. Pay the fare and take a seat, please.
Speaker one: How much is that?
Speaker one: Ah, yes, you’re Brian Preston?
Speaker two: That’s right.
Speaker one: You’ve brought some clothes and things with you, I see.
Speaker two: Yes, I think I’ll probably be here for a few days at least, until all the tests are done.
Speaker one: I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a moment as your bed is not ready yet. The last patient only left an hour ago.
Speaker two: That’s OK. I don’t mind.
Speaker one: Are we getting off at the next station?
Speaker two: No, two stops to go.
Speaker one: Then we’ve got some time to go to the buffet car. I could do with a cup of coffee.
Speaker two: OK.
Speaker one: Do you know where it is?
Speaker two: I guess somewhere at the back.
Speaker one: Let’s ask the ticket collector.
Speaker one: What’s the trouble?
Speaker two: I was sick most of the night. I think it’s something I ate. We ate at that new restaurant last night.
Speaker one: Was it that new restaurant in Birch Street?
Speaker two: As a matter of fact it was. Why do you ask?
Speaker one: Because, one of my patients ate there last week and he had the same kind of problem.
Speaker two: Sounds strange, doesn’t it? Anyway, what shall I take?
Speaker one: For the time being just drink plenty of water and if you don’t get any better tomorrow you’ll have to undergo some tests in hospital.
Speaker one: If you’d like to follow me, I’ll show you your room.
Speaker two: That’s lovely, thank you.
Speaker one: The bathroom is just up here, right next to your room and there is a telephone beside your bed. How long will you be staying with us?
Speaker two: Until Monday.
Speaker one: Fine. I’ll bring you the registration form to fill in.

My family are travellers. We have a van and a caravan and we drive around from place to place, usually with about a dozen other people. We think the world’s too big to stay in just one place.
We’ve lived all over. Sometimes we camp and stay for a few days, other times we might stay a couple of months. It depends how friendly the area and the people are. A lot of towns have special sites set up for travellers, with proper toilets and showers, but other places make it quite difficult to camp. We’ve had people shouting at us, throwing stones, or breaking our things… They call us gypsies or robbers, but we’re not – we just like to travel.
If we’re going to be in one place for a while, I go to the local school. That can be really tough. The kids, when I walk past, hold on to their bags. I think they’re scared I’m going to steal from them. It’s impossible to make friends. I’m never around for long enough, and even if I was, nobody would speak to me.
We enjoy moving around, seeing different parts of the country, and I think it’s great being able to choose a nice spot and to set up there, and we’ve even gone across to France. If we stop in a place that turns out to be horrible, we just move on, whereas some people have to stay in those towns forever.
However, I miss belonging somewhere. I mean I belong with my family and with the other travellers, but sometimes, that isn’t enough… I want to belong with a group of friends, with girls my own age. I don’t know if that will ever happen…
