With my family every place is good, especially if it is abroad.

My favourite place for a holiday is a beach called Shirahama in Wakayama Prefecture.It's a place I've been traveling to since I was little.It's so familiar to me that I could say it's my second home.Shirahama has the ocean and there is a great variety of seafood.We always eat seafood for dinner every night.If you stay in Shirahama for a long time, you can eat seafood until you get tired of it.LOL! In addition, the sea in Shirahama is very clear and clean seawater and you can see the fishes clearly when you swim in the sea.I often dive with my father and I love to see the fish up close.After enjoying the ocean, I play volleyball with my family at the hotel's pool.It's hard to move as we play volleyball in the water.It's more tiring than playing volleyball on land.After playing in the pool, I always go to the hotel's hot spring.It's the perfect time to relax in the hot spring after a hard day's work. However, I could not go to the Shirahama beach every year, but I could not go this summer.Because I still had to go to school.The reopening of school was delayed due to the corona, so my summer vacation was cut short.It's really sad.This summer I had to refrain from being alone and lonely this summer. So I decided to go to Shirahama next year, no matter what, for sure.

When I was single, I like to go hiking on holiday. I climbed most of the mountains in my country. I feel very relaxing standing on the top of the mountain and breathing the fresh air here. But when I was married and had a baby, my family often went to the beach. Because our daughter loves swimming, building castle sand, and walking along the beach. I hope my family will have a hiking trip when my daughter is older.

I really like traveling but I don't have chance to do my hobby. I just went to visit some place in my country. I hope that i will have opportunity to come to Korea soon. I know about that country on movies. I love the romantic scenery here and i will be able to see my idol.

I think the places where we spend in our holiday are very important for us. Because if we choose the places where don’t suit us, we cannot have fun and relax.
I have 2 favorite places where I spend in my holiday. These 2 places are completely different types. First, I like to go to Starbucks on my holiday. I often visit Starbucks near my house to study and relax. Because, I can more focus on than study at home if I go there. Also, I love the atmosphere of Starbucks. Of cause, I like Starbucks beverages. I always try new drinks. It’s fun that I feel to try new drinks is like a kind of adventure. This is also another reason why I choose Starbucks. So, to spend good holiday, I often go to Starbucks.
Next, when I want to stay at home on my holiday, I always spend on the balcony. In my balcony, there is a hammock. I’m in love with the time that to listen to music and take a nap and study English words while riding a hammock. Someone say that spending a holiday at home alone is a waste. However, I don’t think so. Because, I believe it’s also important for us to relax alone. So, I really like to spend alone on the balcony.
To relax, the places where we spend in a holiday are really important. I explained 2 places. And I would like to know new places to spend in a holiday and have more wonderful time. I’m looking forward to spending next my holiday!

I want to go to Europe because there has a very beautiful place here.

I want go alone to climb a mountain to see the beautiful land, stream, beautiful waterfall

I have three favorite places. First, I often go to town called Shin Okubo in Tokyo. This is Korean Town. There are many Korean restaurants and cosmetics shops. It's a bit far to me, but I like Korean culture. So I go a couple of times a month. It's really fun to eat fried chicken with friends and shop. The second is a karaoke box. I like singing and it relieves my stress. I often sing a song that was popular just a little while ago or K-POP. I would be happy if my friends knew my favorite song. Because many people do not know them. But I often don't know their songs, too. It's fun to listen to songs from various genres. But I can't go to two places recently. I'm very sad. And the third favorite places I found is my home. I spend both weekdays and the holiday at home, but I never get tired. This is great. I watch movies, call friends and relax every day. I'm enjoying my life now, but I want to go out, so I pray for the convergence of the coronavirus.

I’m not so used to going on holiday, even if I love them so much. If I go on trip, I’ll prefer going to Istanbul in Turkey, it’s an amazing city to visit it! I also love Turkish food and especially those sweets called “Luquma”, it’s so delicious, and I enjoy sailing through the Bosphore on the Vapur, it’s really amazing, I hope to visit Turkey as soon as possible and meet Aslihan, a Turkish girl that I have known on facebook !!!

Two years ago, I and my family went for a holiday in Istanbul.
Was one of the best travel and vacation in my life.
The traditional food was delicious. The city with beautiful mosques shone in the night. And people were so friendly and polite. We could hear the sea at night from our room, it was so relaxing.
The shopping, there was everything that you wanted to buy with low price and high quality, I bought thirty gifts for my friends and relatives. I never will forget those days in Instanbul.
P.s. I felt in Love there with one handsome Turkish guy, we are still in contact.
