How were your holidays?

I will never forget this year’s holidays. At first I thought these holidays would be very boring, because I was going to the seaside with my family. I thought I would be looking forward to coming back to school, but I was wrong. I can say my holidays were one of the best in my life.

The beginning was quite boring, but on the 15th of July I went with my parents and my family by the sea. We spent 3 weeks there! We lived at a nice, but quite expensive hotel, I think. Our accommodation was in really good condition. There were two rooms, a huge bathroom, a terrace with Jacuzzi and a swimming-pool in the front of the building. The hotel was near the sea, it was really comfortable. Sometimes we were going back from the beach late at night, quite tired and hungry. During those three weeks I met a lot of interesting and kind people. In fact, I spent most of the time with them. They have become my friends. We were building sandcastles, we were swimming, we visited many interesting places and we were sunbathing. We were also doing many wild things, it was unforgettable. The weather was great- every morning I was waking up to a deep blue sky and blazing sun. Only one day it was raining, but the rain was quite warm.

I enjoyed my holidays. It was great for my health. I was lying on a beach and relaxing… All tensions disappeared. This year’s holidays were worth remembering.
