L'achat des vêtements

Today is your lucky day! You've just won a free trip to an island in the French-speaking world. Now it's up to you to decide which island you will visit and what you will wear when you get there.

Take a look at some Web sites devoted to French-speaking islands. Choose one or two islands that you would like to visit. Then, taking into account the activities available on those islands, make a list (in French) of the items you would pack for the trip.
