Multiple-choice holiday postcard

In   cathedral/ taxi/ trouble/ haste/ love/ clink
On   the plane/ the beach/ my back/ the run/ the brink
Waiting for   the bus/ the boat/ a life/ Godot/ a drink

Hotel    first class/ deluxe/ is almost built/ is bijou
Bedroom   is huge/ has views/ has rats / is canvas lean-to
Been bitten by   a tick/ mosquito/ spider/ adder/ emu

Was photographed with    monkey/ camel/ camera/ stranger/ waiter
Swam with    snorkel/ dolphins/ mobile phone/ tide/ alligator
See you    soon/ tomorrow/ one day/ never/ later
