    We've been to Australia a few times. The first time we went it was work, then the next time we went it was a mix of work and holiday.(Cambridge English Grammar Today)

    If I separte the above sentence into two parts, which of the following sentences is correct?

    1. The first time we went it was work

    Thanks.
