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.

I wish I went to Prague, Czech Republic, with my husband, because there was our fist trip eight years ago. It might bring even more romance to our relationship.

My last holyday was three days in Havana city. I didn't stay at a hotel becuase they're so expensive. I stayed at my family's house. I spent a great with my family. We visited a few interesting places there. We visited the most famous musuem in Havana city, it's called The Revolution's Museum. Because the museum has the whole history of our country. I had fun a lot. I hope to come back soon.

My last holiday was in in a city with a lots of population. I don't think I enjoy it.

My last holidays was a one-week trip to a town near Barranquilla, I spent the New Year's holidays there.
The place was a bit calm, but entertaining. I really missed my family and how I couldn't visit them, I was in the company of some friends
