For my holidays I would like to go to U.S.A and to Greece.

At first I would go to the United States which is situated in central North America, and make a visit to all the country, a guided tour.

Once I was there, the first city I would visit it is Washington because is the capital of U.S.A and because I would like to visit the White House, then New York because of the skyscrapers and in the end I would visit Orlando because of the Warner Bros.

White House

New York city

Although, I would visit all the country so I think I will spend one month in United States.

Another country that I would like to visit on holidays is Greece where I would go by cruise. When I was there I would visit the most important islands like Hermoupolis, Andros, Icaria ... and after that I would go to Athens and visit the Parthenon and the Olympic Stadium.

After visit all those places I think I would have a relaxing week in an hotel in Macedon and go back to Spain.

San Francisco

This summer I would like to go to San Francisco. Since I'm young, I'd like to go to there because I always see this city in films. I love the parks , the people, the food .... I would like to stay with a family in their house to learn more about their culture and about the city.If I stayed there, I would improve my English and meet some new people .

There I would like to visit all the famous places like the Golden Gate bridge, the modern art museum,the Golden Gate park.... If I went there, I would a lot of photos to shaw them to all my friends and to my family.

I would like to eat some typical San Francisco food to try it .Moreover I would to go shopping to Union Square because is a well-known shopping district. In San Francisco the baseball is one of the most important sports so I would like to go to a match and also practise it.

In conclusion, these would be my perfect holidays.I would spent all my time there enjoying my jobies , learning English and meeting people.

My perfect holidays

If I have to prepare perfect holidays I would like to go to "Las Vegas" and to Hawaii.

Las Vegas is the most popular city in the United State of Nevada. Las Vegas, is famous for the number of casinos and associated entertainment.

I would like to go to Las Vegas with my friends without parents when I am eighteen. There I want to visit all the casinos it has and also visit and a really amazing ride. Here I have included a video, so you can see how the attraction is like .

In my opinion this attraction it´s too frightening if you aren´t brave. Because, you have to know that you are situated on the top of a one hundred four floor. Then you sit down in a type os car (more or less) and you go down a slope but always in the same height.

This attraction would be interesting to go on at night because you could see incredible views.

I think it is the best attraction on the world, however I am not sure that I would be brave enough to go on it.

I would also like to go to Hawaii.

I love the beaches and I´m my opinion in Hawaii there are the best beaches on the world. The beaches are very beautiful as you can see in the picture.
< The picture is one of the many beaches you can find in Hawaii.
As well, in Hawaii you have all you need to live well. You have shops, supermarkets, places to have fun...

Going to these two places would be really good and I am sure that I´m going to go.

My perfect holidays.

This summer I would like to go to Malta. It's an island to the south of Italy. It's a nice place where the temperature is high and it's always sunny. There are a lot of beaches and the sea is beautiful. It's blue like the sky.

The people who live there are very friendly and nice.
The food there is better than in Spain, in my opinion and there are tasty pizzas there.
What I want to see there are the islands of Comino and Gozo. And in the north of the island I want to see The Valleta that is a place where there are a lot of beaches and cliffs. I would visit the Hilton hotel that is great and enormous.
At night there's many parties there and I would go to the discos and meet other people. There are a lot of monuments too that I want to visit. I'd like to visit the most important cities historically where there are ruins and strange caves

This photo on the left is Paceville, the party zone.
I'd like stay with a family and go with them to places that they would show me.
Those would be my perfect holidays.

Talking about holidays - Venice

For my holidays I would like to go to Venice that is a city in northern Italy. It's an interesting place where all the canals are flooded so you can't walk through the street. The classical Venetian boat is the gondola, although it is now mostly used for tourists. Most Venetians now travel by motorised waterbuses (vaporetti).

In Venice, I would like to get on a gondola and to see the canals and the many bridges like the Bridge of Sighs, called Ponte dei Sospiri in Italian. I also want to see the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, the Galleria Internazionale d'Arte Moderna and the Palazzo Fortuny, which are wonderful places with an important part of the Venecian culture.

The Carnival of Venice was first recorded in 1268 and it's recognized all over the world. That's why I want to see it. People wear beautiful masks and you can really have fun. It would be so enjoyable and unforgettable.

The holidays of my dreams

For my next holidays I would like to visit many estranges and interesting places and cities like Africa or India.


ggggAfrica (Sahara)ggggggggggggggggIndia(Taj Mahal)

First of all, I would like to visit Africa's deserts and stay there for a long time to learn the culture and customs of people who had lived there all their life.
There, I would enjoy going along the deserts riding a camel. There I would be able to cope with the heat or I wish that! On the one hand I would have to survive eating disgusting animals like scorpions and sleeping in uncomfortable tents. It would be really unpleasant! But on the other hand I think that I wouldn't forget it in my hole life and I think that I would learn many interesting things and it would be really fascinating.

Then I would like to visit India and wear the spectacular clothes that they wear everyday. I would like to help poor children who live there too because I think that they don't deserve to have an indecent childhood. I would taste the extrange foods of there too, as in Africa. But I think that the most interestintg part of my trip to India would be to visit beautiful palaces like Taj Mahal.
Other beautiful places would be the markets. There they sell all kind of things that you need in your everyday life. They are very beautiful because they sell especially colorful clothes and carpets.


In my opinion, the holidays are the best time of the year. I think that summer holidays are better than winter ones because there are more things to do and the weather is much better.
This summer I'm going to England for four weeks. I think that´s an interesting place to visit and I hope I will have a great time there. But if I had to choose, I would like to go to USA, especially New York or Chicago. Although I like little villages, I also like big cities and in the future, I would like to live in one of them. I have only seen New York and Chicago in photos, but I think they are incredible.
New York is one of the biggest cities in the world, and it´s almost more important than Washington. It is a great place to go sightseeing, because you can visit the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Central Park or the Midtown Manhattan skyline, and you can go shopping because there are lots of shops.
In Chicago, there are less things to visit, but it´s incredible to see really high buildings like the Sears Towers.
In conclusion, the places I would like to visit the most are Chicago and New York, and if it was possible, I would like to visit them with friends.

In our name

In our name we would help poor people by going to Africa as missionaries. We would live there for six months. We could give them some food, clothes and build houses. If we were rich, we would give part of our money for building and conserving a new school with books, notebooks, pencils and so on.
And an other part of our money would be for medicin because in The Third World there are a lot of illnesses like AIDS, malaria, typhus...
Also, we will accept people who would come to be part of this project.
