How to use spare momey? It is really a difficult question. Some people seem to want a new car; others tend to spend some money going on vacation. Comparing with these two options, I think it is better to use some money to go on vacation.
On the one hand, there are only two adventages of buying a new car. One adventage is convenient. If we have a car, wecan go to many places without taking buses or walking. It can help us save much time and money. The other one is that we can go some places that aren`t easy to arrive. For example, it is very hard to get the top of the mountain. Sometimes we need to climb it for a long time. However, if we have a car, we can drive to the destinationonly for several minutes. My father likes to visit some special places that we can`t take any public transportation to go there, but he can drive his car to where he wants to go.
On the other hand, there are three adventages to go on vacation. the first one is making a lot of people. We often go on a trip with some partner, so it is a good chance to meet many people andmake friends with them. The next adventage is relaxing. Driving car especially for long distance is very tired
and could be nervous because of avoiding accidents. Nevertheless, going on a vacation can help people take a rest and get rid of the stress life. The final one is that it isn`t bad for our environment. If we don`t buy the car, we will reduce many chances to cause pollution, such as air pollution and noise pollution. Therefore, I would urge my friend choose going on vacation.
Of course, it would be argued on the other choice. However, I prefer the former one because it is quantitily better than the latter one.
