Do the preparation task first. Then read the text and tips and do the exercises.
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.
Last summer, in particular on the last weekend of June, I decided to visit Granada, an amazing city in Spain. I visited Granada for the second time with my family, my wife, and two daughters. I was so happy because I visited Granada sights, especially Alhambra Palace, and Civilization Museum. We arrived at the hotel by bus at 11 a.m. The hotel was wonderful and clean, and the food they offer was delicious. My family really liked the traditional typical dishes of Granada, in particular the dish named Baella.
During the holiday, I met some of my Spanish colleagues and they invited us to visit their house which is located in a nice village in the city suburb. Really, I liked this place for the large landscape, calmness, and the kind people who live in. On the fifth day of our holiday, we walked around the city and saw the old city which has been built above the mountain. So, you can see the whole city from above it. Despite the enjoyment that we have got, the negative thing about that holiday was that we spent so much money and also many friends need to buy some things from there, so I bought some souvenirs and I hope that I can keep one for myself to remind of that divine place.
By and large, this holiday was great and unforgettable thanks to my Spanish friend, Gaspar, who provided me with a Guidebook which makes my trip easy and coy.
My last holiday was four days on São Miguel dos Milagres with my family.
We stay on the beach house of my grandpa. There is a pool, and four rooms in that.
There we go to the beach, to some interesting restaurants, to a beach clube and to an ice cream shop.
I love that travel and i'd love go back to São Miguel dos Milagres.
On the first weekend in March, we took an amazing trip to Barcelona. We went by train from Atocha station and the journey lasted two and a half hours.
When we arrived at the historic Barcelona Sants station, we took the metro to Plaza de Tetuan, which is where we had the apartment. We left our baggage and went to visit the city centre, Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya, La Boqueria Market, Paseo de Gracia, etc. On Sunday, we saw the beautiful Sagrada Familia which is my favourite landmark. Later, we went to the incredible Nou Camp stadium to see the Barça game against Valencia. After the game we visited the official store and did some shopping but everything was very expensive. On Monday, before returning to Madrid we went back to the Nou Camp to take a guided tour of the trophy room, changing rooms, benches, and the VIP box.
At the end, we went to the apartment to take the suitcases and so, we took the metro to the Sants station where we boarded the high speed train back to Madrid.
I go to Thailand for a camping holiday, It was fun I go caving on the first day, I see many bets are sleeping on top of the cave.(no time to finish)
Before 5 years, my sister and I went in a Euro trip. It was our first international trip together and we're beyond happy that it went well.
I planned the whole trip and to be honest I was quite nervous and anxious that something might go wrong. We visited 3 countries and 8 cities which were in our bucket list. Every place we visited has its own uniqueness; however, some cities just captivated our hearts, especially Paris, the city of light and love :).
Because we are food lovers, we tried to try as many dishes as we can. Some dishes touch our hearts before getting into our tummies, and croissant is my only example :D. I hope to visit more countries in the future with my sister and to make more memories together.
A place I have visited long before
My last holiday was five days. I went with my cousin to Cappadocia in Turkey. We stayed at a cave hotel in Gorme village and it was amazing. We had a beautiful view over the all the caves. We did some touristy things too. In the first days we flown with balloon and we could see Cappadocia city. In the second days we went to the Open Museum so we could go inside the caves and to see how people lives at that time.
Last days we walked about thirteen kilometers around the city and we visited the oldest castles in Cappadocia. We choose a different local restaurant every day. The food was delicious and cheap. I would like to go there again because that is a lot of things I want to see, and I recommend other people to go and see the magic city.
My last holiday was a five-day trip to Tbilisi the capital of Georgia. It was my first real holiday for last several years, usually I continue to work in my trips, but in this time I decided to not.
I went to this trip with my wife. We went by train. There was my first visit of Tbilisi but my wife was there a year before. So she knew all interesting places and sightseeings and showed me the city.
As it was my only holiday for the long time I don’t want to have a tight schedule and preferred spend it in chill way. I woke up without alarm had a breakfast slowly and then we decided where to go and what to do today.
We have visited some famous places as monument Mother of Georgia placed at the top of the mountain, some historical churches. We used old funicular to reach the top of another mountain with the amusement park. We walk a lot every day and explore almost every part of the city.
I really love restaurants in Tbilisi. We tried Italian, Japan, French and Georgian cosine. The food in Georgia is cheap and amazing!
It were five amazing days. I felt myself so relaxed and ready for new challenges at my job.
We had our summer holiday in the west cost of Korea. We stayed in a beach hotel near the city center, We stayed for 2nights and 1day in a deluxe room with side seaview on the 10th floor.
On the first day, rain poured down in torrents, we couldn't go swimming in the beach so we decided to just go to the nearby indoor pool. We had no luck on the following day it rained a lot so we just stayed in our room binge watch the entire season of 'Descendants' to keep my daughter amused. It was such a shame, we couldn't make most of our holiday. However on our last day the weather was wonderful, we visited a famous traditional market, there were lots of scrumptious snacks, lots of tourist and long queues. It was fun though. Thinking about our trip makes me feel nostalgic.In fact It was our first family trip together, I guess it wasn't that bad at all. Well I think I just to remind myself to look at the bright side of everything
My last holidays was in April. Normally, we have long holidays in April in Myanmar. April is Myanmar new year month. We get nearly 7 or 10 holidays so we travel or doing good things or offering traditional foods with our neighbors. Most of the elder people go to monastery or famous pagoda to offer arm foods to the Monks or keeping sabbath.
Since ı work too hard ı only can once a year vacation and this isn't enough for me. When people work hard some times their brains don't work when this happened you should rest. Last year this time ı went 4 days camping with my friends. That is my last holiday we really enjoyed during the holiday.
