My last holiday

My last holiday was a five-day trip to Prague in the Czech Republic. I know Prague well because I lived there when I was at university, more than ten years ago.

Instead of staying in a hotel, I stayed with one of my old friends. It was so much fun, and a little bit like my old life. I wanted to do all the same things I did in my university days, so I visited the university. It has changed a lot and looks more modern. I also went to the supermarket near my old house. I loved seeing all the different foods. I was really happy to find my favourite cheese and chocolate biscuits but they were a bit more expensive than I remember!

We did some touristy things too. We walked up beautiful Petrin Hill and around the castle. The views of the city are amazing up there. We walked across the historic Charles Bridge. My friend's flat is very near the TV Tower so we saw the famous baby statues climbing up it. Those things haven't changed, of course.

My last holiday was last year. I went to Chile to visit my family for six weeks. I stayed in my parent's house. Always is nice to visit my family, but also takes a few weeks to feel at home again. Many things changed in my natal town and in my country that I have to adapt to again. The family grows with new nieces and a nephew, so almost all the attention goes over them. I had the warmest family time and enjoyed catching up with my brothers and sister because we don`t use to call much often by phone. We had a great time together that I appreciate because was just before covid.

Hi, my last holiday was very funny and just wonderful. I visited Wishingthon state with my friend. we did camping in the forest, it was a little cold but in october the season give lots of different colors in the trees. It was very beautiful. After, we saw the snowy mountains, we drove under the snow while one hour and we finished in the desert, with a beautiful sun. It was some incroyable different views. I loved walk in kirkland erea, between the trees and the road. To spend a time with my friends at the restaurant or in some bar.
