Well, for me, I travel by plane once or twice a year, and the last time is when I traveled from Shenzhen to Shanghai last year. I love traveling by air, as it's very fast and I can enjoy the wonderful views of blue sky and endless white clouds. I wish I would be able to travel by plane to more places in the world. For example, I would like to visit Japan for its uniqe and traditional cultures and beautiful spots, France for its famous places of interest such as La Tour Eiffel, Le Louvre, etc., The United States of America for cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Canada for its English and French cultures, Australia for its gorgeous beach views, and other countries as well such as Singapore, Germany, Britain, Thailand, and so on. However, Japan is the first country I would like to visit. So, I plan to pick up some Japanese language before I go to Japan some day.
