Describe your trip (Example):


The first time I went to New York was spring 2017.I went there with my sister. We were there for about five days. I fell in love with the city. There was everything you could imagine from city vacation; shopping, delicious food, experiences… The list goes on and on… The first thing that we did at NewYork was finding our hotel. It’s name is Millennium Hilton New York Downtown. After laying down at the hotel’s king-size bed, we went to explore the city. That was the first time I got to see how a multicultured place New York was, as a melting pot. There was a very good chance for me to get to know NewYork’s food culture. It was amazing! There was Chinese, Indian food, Italian and European food, almost everything you can imagine. I got crazy about Di Fara Pizza. It was insane! We ate different meals every day. It was so delicious!

What I also want to write about New York, is the shops and street fashion. There were so many shops where I wanted to stop by. The people in New York were super stylish. There were so many different styles. That kind of dressing up I haven’t seen in my country. Every pedestrian was personal and different.

    The first time i went to sri-lanka with my husband,daughter and nephew in 2018.we had a 40 minute long flight, we landed at Colombo at 6 pm.we went to my brother in law’s house and ate and slept. The next day in the early morning we made sandwiches and packed for a long trip to nuraliya. We made a few stops on the way the drive was about 6 hours. After we went to the hotel we took the largest room that was available a penthouse. we had two floors a kitchen, a living room a big bathroom and a bed room.
