  16. 17. <ul><li>Tattoos are fashionable today and more and more people are getting tattooed. However, I think not all of them are fully accepted in our society. </li></ul><ul><li>Many famous people have tattoos on their bodies and they are not only fully accepted but also highly admired by many young people. But most people have to hide their tattoos because they are unaccepted in the place they work at. In my opinion, it is at the workplace where tattoos are least accepted. For example, how would we react if we were operated by a surgeon whose body was full of tattoos? Moreover, news presenters do not have visible tattoos on their bodies, neither do executives, politicians, lawyers, or many other professionals. </li></ul><ul><li>To conclude, I sadly believe that nowadays a person wearing a tattoo is still seen by society as a less competent and proficient person. </li></ul>
  17. 18. <ul><li>There are many examples of travel books that have been turned into literary masterpieces as well as popular bestsellers. </li></ul><ul><li>Books like Gulliver´s Travels or Around the World in Eighty Days have been read by generations of readers worldwide . However, I think that travel books are not so popular today as they used to be in the past. It seems to me that most of the books that are bestsellers in the bookshops do not deal with travels. I believe that one reason for this is that foreign countries seem more familiar and accessible now than a few centuries ago. Both because of television, internet and the fact that travelling abroad is more widespread nowadays than in the past, modern readers do not need to read stories about faraway places but can visit them instead. </li></ul><ul><li>I really believe that modern readers prefer travelling to reading about travels. Or at least, that is my case. </li></ul>
