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.

Tips

1. Try to make your writing interesting for the reader. To do this, you can make it personal with your own memories and experiences.

2. Use adjectives to add detail to your descriptions.

3. Write clear and simple sentences and organise your ideas in short paragraphs. Give each paragraph a different topic.

4. Use so, but, and, because and other linking words.

My last holiday was in Lazarevskoye. Lazarevskoye is the microdistrict of Sochi, a resort on the Black Sea coast of the Krasnodar region. We stayed there with my family for 5 days. We swam all day and visited the rides, and went for a walk in the evening. I want to come back here with my daughter ☺️

Hi! My last weekend with my family spent one month in Bukhara. I enjoyed the city of Bukhara. Especially when you get to the city, you will see history. The national patterns and images in the mausoleum were amazed at me. Moreover, I've come to love tourists from France, Italy, Germany, Japan and South Korea. The boom always boosts the quality of good mood and productivity.

My last holiday was amazing, it was in Jambelí Island (Ecuador), I was for the first time here. It was very fun because I shared good moments with my family, including my nephews, nieces, siblings and parents. We went from the bay to the island by boat, this lasted 15 minutes. When we arrived, we went to a restaurant and we ate seafood, it was delicious. My family and me enjoy beach all afternoon.

My last holiday. 1. My last holiday was a one-week trip to Kazakhstan in the city of Almaty. I went to friends on the 23rd anniversary of high school. We all gathered in Kazakhstan because most of our classmates were there. We decided to correct this event in the Koktobe mountains of Kazakhstan. There we rented a cottage for two days and gathered with all our friends there. We prepared barbecue, bought all sorts of drinks. We invited our former class teacher to our event. The next day, we visited Shynbulak, went swimming in Kapchagai. After a week in Kazakhstan, I returned full of memories to my hometown. I really enjoyed this trip.
