  1. I went to Calpe, Alicante, last August .I went with my husband, my daughter, my sister-in-law and two nieces. We went by car.We stayed for four days in a big hotel with a sea view. We could to see all the beach from our room.

    First, we had a good breakfast in the hotel and then we had lunch on the beach.
    In the afternoon, we walked around the town and we walked to the seafront. After that, we visited the fishing port and we saw “Ifach Peñon”. It’s a great mountain over the sea.In the summit, it has an excellent view.
    I took a lot of photos and I bought many things in the stands of the Artisan Fair that was in the sea front .

    We had a great time. Calpe is a wonderful place. I love it because the weather’s good all the year.
    I like it very much.

    Excellent, Rosa!!

  2. I went to Berlin last May with my girlfriend.We flew to Berlin with Easyjet.

    We stayed for four days in a little hotel away from the city centre,but near the subway station.The hotel was nice and quite cheap,around 35 euros for a night in a double room.

    During the day we walked around the city.We saw all the famous places like the “Wall of Berlin”,”Brandenburguer Toor”,the “Reichstag”(it´s the German Parliament) and we visited very beautiful squares and very interesting neighborhoods.We also visited the Pergamo Museum,it´s an Islamic,Roman and Greek art museum.

    At night we went to restaurants and had fantastic sushi,sausages and drank a lot of German beer. We also went to very popular dance club,in Germany it is very popular and its electronic music is great! We were in Watergate — it´s a club near of Wall of Berlin.We didn´t buy any gift.

    We had a great time.Berlin is full of recent history and it is a very interesting city.People have an open mind and have a freedom sensation.We only had one problem: my girlfriend lost her ID card in the airport, when we were boarding the plane.We found the ID card on time to fly.

    Excellent, Cristóbal! Nice trip to Ireland!

    I went to Valencia. I went with my girlfriend. We went there last August. We got there by car. We stayed in my house. We went to the beach and the disco. It was a good time.
    Well done, Javi! Step by step you are improving a lot! Keep up the good work!

    I went to Argentina last October with my wife. We flew with Aerolineas Argentinas.
    We were in Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, Calafate, Bariloche and Iguazu. It was a honeymoon trip.
    We saw all famous places in the country like Perito´s glacier, Iguazu falls and the world’s ass (Ushuaia). We took a lot of photos two thousand more or less. We had lunch in very good restaurants and we had excellent steaks and pasta, and the ice cream was fantastic.
    We went to the theater in Buenos Aires. When people go to the theater they wear very very elegant clothes. We bought some clothes and a lot of gifts for family and friends.
    The weather changed all time. In Patagonia you can have four seasons in one day (like the song goes!).
    People were very nice. They always helped you.
    I hope I can go back some day.

    Excellent, Fernando!

  5. Julia Basico I

    Last July I went to Praga and Budapest with my husband and my sons.First we flew to Budapest.We stayed there for 5 days .The hotel was in Buda .Budapest is a beautiful city but its buildings are very dirty.They need some painting.It’s a nice city, anyway.
    The Danubio runs through Budapest and divides Budapest into Buda and Pest.During the day we walked,walked and walked,visited monuments, monuments and monuments.We had Hungarian meals.They were quite heavy but we had to try the food.At night we were very tired.
    In the river there were restaurants.They were ships.One night we had dinner in one of them.As we were having dinner there were musicians playing romantic music.
    Then we left for Praga.In Praga you can’t drive you only can walk.Its streets, its river ,its monuments,all in Praga is like a tale. We stayed there for 5 days. In these days we walked ,walked, and walked and so on.The hotel here was an old building close to the river Moldavia. It was very nice.
    Kafka was born in Praga .His home was in the centre of the city.
    After Praga we went to a small but beautiful town Carlovy Vary.It was the holiday place of the rich people from Russia.
    We had a great time although we also had a big problem the language. It’s very difficult and people there only speak their Language.

    Congratulations, Julia! You have learned (US) /learnt (UK) to use periods (US)/full-stops (UK) in English. Also (=además), your English is incredibly good. Your progress is outstanding! 🙂 Keep it up!

  6. I’m Mayte Ba1.

    I went to Menorca two years ago, with my husband and my son. We flew to Menorca with “Air Europa”, the plane was very small. I’m terrified of flying. I was very nervous when the engine began to work. I took my seat and closed my eyes until we landed Menorca.
    We stayed there for ten days in a hotel near the beach. The hotel was nice and there were a lot of activities for the children and for adults. At night there was a show it was fun.
    During the day we went to the beach or the swimming-pool. Then we had lunch in our hotel there was a buffet. Then we went to our room to sleep the siesta. At night we had dinner in the hotel and we walked around the beach.
    We bought a pair of jeans, some shoes and presents for the family.
    We had a great time. We were very relaxed. The weather was good… we only had one problem: the plane, I hate it!

    Excellent, Mayte!

  7. I am Catalina(Ba1)

    I went to Paris last August with my husband. We flew to Paris with Air Europa.

    We stayed there for a week in a flat of our friends in the south of Paris.

    During the day we walked around the city. We visited the famous places and the Museum the Louvre and the Ordsay. We went to the Eiffel Tower, Concorde, Notre-Dame, Madeleine Church, Arc of Triomphe. We walked in the Champs-Elysees, Les Envalides and Disneyland, where we felt like in a fairy story and like when we were a children.

    We took a lot of photos. At night we met our friends and had dinner together. When the day finished we were very tired.

    I bought very cheap shoes and a Mickey Mouse bell.

    We had a great time. Paris is a specially romantic city for lovers.

    We didn’t have any problems. We had a wonderful time.

    Excellent, Catalina!!

  8. I went to Atenas last July with my daugther. We flew to Atenas with Spanair.
    We stayed there for five years and after that we took a boat to the Greek islands. The hotel was quite cheap because it was in a Paquistani quarter. My daugther freaked out! But all was very well.
    During the day we walked around the city and we visited the famous museums and monuments. We took a lot of photos!
    At night we went to restaurants in the famous places with typical music of the country.
    Our favourite restaurant was in the Monastiri place.
    In the boat, during the day, we visited all the beaches. [is that it?]
    We bought some souvenirs for the family and my daugther bought some clothes and I got a ring like Meandro’s river.
    We had a great time but it was too hot.
    The Mediterranean food is wonderful. We loved it!
    At night we went to the disco to dance at about twelve. All the trip was really exciting!

    I bet! It sounds amazing! Well done, Nuria!

  9. I spent 15 days in Greenland. It was amazing!!. I went with Javier, my husband. This time we weren’t on our own but in a package tour (even though there were just seven people, I mean it wasn’t a big group). We visited wonderful places, such as Nanortalik, Tasiusak, but the most stunning sceneries were the fiords and the glaciers. We spent three nights in a place called Qaleraliq. We did an excursion to the glacier. We had to wear crampons. We were able to listen to tremendous noises from the icebergs when they broke down and fell into the water. We used a zodiac to move from one place to another and it was freezing to death. We managed to see a whale in our way to Tasermiut, another magnificent piece of scenery. We all were lost for words. I really enjoyed this trip. It was great.

    Thanks for sharing, Pepi! Amazing trip! And thanks for sharing in class too!

  10. When I got married, I went to Thailand on honeymoon.We flew to Bangok with Thai Airlines[?]

    We did a tour of fifteen days around all the country.We stayed in Bangok for three days.

    In the morning, early, we visited many temples, e.g. Temple of Buda, Temple of Wat Po… When we came into a temple, it was necessary to take off your shoes. We gave some coins and we could ligth a candle.

    I loved the floating market.It was a very typical place. It was between channels and people in their boats sold fruits, clothes… and snakes. We bought a lot of souvenirs. It was very cheap.

    At the night, we went to see an Elephants show.
    We had a problem. It was very hot. We always wore a cap and a fan.

    I hope to go back there again.

    Well done, Paqui! Nice trip!

  11. Last July I went to Belgium and Holland with my husband and my three sons.We flew to Brussels with Brussels-Airlines.We bought the tickets on the Net — it’s cheaper if you buy them in advance — and rented a car. We stayed there for eight days. The first day, we walked around the town.We visited The Atomium, The Manneken Pis (It was five minutes walking to the hotel ),and The Council’s square. These were beautiful places, especially at night.The second day, we travelled by car to Gantes. There was a rock festival. After we went to Brujas. We liked the canals, the streets and the delicious chocolate. We bought some chocolate for us and to give away. The third day, we drove to Colonia (Germany) to see the cathedral. We went up the 509 stairs on foot. When you arrived at the top you could see The Rhin and the town. It is wonderful and the wind blows…The fourth day, we left Brussels to visit Rotterdam (It was raining all the time) and finally we arrived in Amsterdam. There was a lot of traffic. The hotel in Amsterdam was smaller that the other one but it was great, close to the Dam’ s square. Here, we spent the rest of the days . We visited Ana’s house, the Rij’s museum, The Van Gogh’s museum, The red quarter… We went on a trip by ship at night. We visited the villages near by Amsterdam ,…..The weather at first was bad ,but changed and the sun shone. We bought some marihuana lollipops. This town was different because a lot people ride bicycles and at first it was difficult to cross the streets. The bicycles can go in all the directions and you never know their way. The last day we returned to Brussels an we saw Waterloo and came back to Spain .

    Good work!!! Well done, Pilar! Keep it up! 🙂

    I’m going to tell youabout my holiday in 2008

    In the summer in 2008, I went to Ireland with my family and friends. Nine people in all.
    We flew to the airport of Shannon with Ryanair.
    We stayed in a big house near a little village for two weeks. The house was opposite a long beach. The house was also behind a big grass field where a lot of sheeps grazed. It was really nice and quiet.
    During the day we walked around the village. We walked barefoot in the beach. We didn’t swim because the water was frozen. We saw the famous dauphin of Dingle. We also saw the Ring of Kerry. We took a lot of photos.
    At the night we went to the pub an had a pint of beer with potatoes with onion, and listened to the Celtic music.
    I didn’t buy anything, except for a calendar2009 with a beautiful pictures of Ireland.
    We had a good weather but in the same day it was rainy and sunny.
    We only had one problem: when we took the plane we heard: “Get out of the airport quickly. Bomb warning” The plane took off three hours later. The warning was fake.

    Excellent, Mónica! 🙂

    Dear María, you need to pay more attention to the subject and the verb. When you start a sentence, first say WHO DID WHAT and then be careful with the TENSE of the verb, OK? Try with another story, OK? 🙂 See you!
