My favorite place for a holiday is Korea with its breath taking views, mountainious terrain that overlooks the city, magnificent royal palaces and mouth watering food as well as its trendy high street fashion. It's a perfect place to spend your holiday.

My favourite place for a holiday is Istanbul. This wonderful city is a unique place with charming nature and attractive lively atmosphere. It is such a melting pot of the past, the present and the future and has always been a rich mosaic of people, religions and cultures. People are wecoming and friendly and food is delicious and of a great variety !!

Napoleon once said, “If the world was only one country, Istanbul would be its capital.”

I have ask xxx mean kisses? beacues that hear porn
and xoxo?

Hi Barrita,

Yes, 'xxx' means both of those things. For kisses, it doesn't need to be three. For example, 'x' or 'xx' also mean kisses.

'xoxo' means something like 'hugs and kisses'. It's an expression of affection.

I hope that helps!

It depends. Sometimes I like staying in the city. And sometimes I want to go to a more relaxing place. I need delicious food and amazing views to get relaxed. I'm jealous sometimes, but then I just find something suitable for me.
I'm sure when we go on a holiday with children, they will build sandcastles and eat a lot of ice creams.
