From my perspective, both of them are fantastic and fascinating to go on a trip as a weekend vacation, which makes me confused between them to pick only one from two since if I consider the boy’s weekend plan, there are a good number of various kinds of exhilarating and natural activities that can provoke us to loosen up and kick back during our weekends, reducing our a great amount of stress suffer from our academic subjects and society, therefore, this will be an excellent idea to ease our stress and ought to go them. Furthermore, I have never heard about some of the activities he mentioned in the recording like dirt boarding and canyoning in more details, which I am willing to go straight away after I have listened to their conversation and I presume they will be thrilling experiences for me who haven't tried them on yet. And then I would like to take up and get out of zip wiring and bungee jumping, which can give me extraordinary experiences and feelings like an adventure, wheras the most I would like to go is white water rafting and canyoning owing to my preference for related water activities. Thereby, all of them are perfectly fit with my likes and can not undertake any more with his one for any reason. Nonetheless, if I regard the girl's plan, I would say it is worth enough to select for enthusiasts who prefer to travel around and explore new things in a city like magnificent Paris even though for me who is not into an exhibition of paintings, galleries, statues and art as a not art aficionado like her. To sum up, I would prefer only the boy's excellent weekend plan rather than the girl's one even if some of the activities like looking around the old parts of the city, going up the famous and historic Tower, taking a boat along the River, going shopping and lastly eating out at restaurants of the girl's plan.

I would prefer the girl's. I would love to go to Paris once I've never been there. I would be able to practice my french as well.

I liked the conversation, both plans sound great, my ideal weekend would be to go on a trip to a country with a lot of nature like Switzerland, I would love to know Switzerland and get lost myself in nature

Neither. I prefer gonna the beaches and do trekking through the trees on the nature.
You know, I'm not the kind of person that loves risky adventures. In a lower level I love do trekking and walk in general. I rather enjoy the nature and pass a great and peaceful time than have got a high level of adrenaline and pulse.

I prefer the boy's weekend although I'm a girl. I love outdoor and close to nature activities such as trekking, climbing, canyoning, etc. But to take part in these sports requires you have good health, strong persistence, and some techniques. Through these activities, we also have opportunities to socialize, gain the understandings of teamwork, problem- solving skills as well as learn important lessons about disciplines, self- esteem, and mutual respect. There are so amazing and a lot of funs.

sincerely it difficult for me to chose which weekend I prefer because the two are really amazing and exiting and you can have a lot of fun. But I think I'm going to chose the boy's weekend even if I'm a girl because 4 days in Paris sound really small for doing all your plan. Visit ,shopping , there is a many place to see. And I really want to experience the dirt-boarding and canyoning it's sound's really amazing and you can have a lot of fun so for a weekend I prefer the Boy's weekend.

I would prefer the girl's weekend. The boy's one is quite dangerous and risky for me.
It's true that in Paris there a loads of things to see and to visit. And 4 days is even not enough to do everything.

I prefer the girl's weekend because I love travelling a lot. In fact, that's the thing that I most enjoy in the world. I don't like the extrem sports too. I'm not brave enough.

I prefer the girl's weekend because I love traveling. I like to see monuments, visit museums and learn about new cultures. I have never been to Paris and I hope to go there one day!

I prefer the boys' weekend because it sounds more exciting! Once I went to a tyrolese and I loved it. Oh, the nature around me, the wind against myself, it was marvelous!
But Paris sounds good too, well, not much like the boys' sports

I prefer the boy’s weekend because I like extreme sports. For example I think horse riding is extreme sport (I do it every week) because you can fall and break leg or arm or what worse your backbone. I go hiking in the mountains with my parents so I’d love to try dirtboarding on a hike. I like kayaking but I’ve never tried canoeing on mountain rivers.

I would prefer the boy's plan. Because the activities that he mentioned are quite interesting and more funnier than the girls choice. But honestly, i am afraid of doing extreme sports...

I obviously prefer the guy's weekends because I like extreme activities and I love sports so that's why I like the boy's option

Certanly, i prefer boy's weekend. Why? The answer is simple) Most of boys prefer active rest and so, they prefer climbing, jumping, swimiming and etc, rather then walking through the streets or shopping. In my opinion it's more for girls)
p.s. except those who are fond of art and France, in particular Paris ;)
