- My holidays (2)
- I go on holiday every year either to the mountains or to the seaside. In Italy we have
atwo weeksí holiday for Christmas and three monthsí in thesummer.
I go to the mountains particularly in winter when it snows because I like skiing very much.
UnfortunatelyItís been two years since I last went to the mountains because I had to take part in swimming competitions.
I donít like going to the mountains in summer because I donít like (Or: I don't enjoy) going for long walks, going trekking or climbing. I like going to the seaside a lot, especially in summertime, because this is my favourite (Am = favorite) time of the year; I have no school and itís almost always sunny.
I usually go on holiday with my parents and my sister.
We went on holiday to Italy and
abroad (France)France but never outside Europe.
We usually stay in a hotel or in a camping site. Once we rented a house. Staying in a hotel is more comfortable (you can have your private bathroom and you have your meals ready) but in a camping site you are free to eat whenever you want and whatever you want. On the other hand, you have to do everything on your own.
I think the best accommodation is a rented house: itís comfortable and you can do what you want.
We travel by car, train, or by boat. I have never been on a plane so far.
I go to Corsica almost every year. I go there with my family and my relatives: my parents, my sister, my aunt Michela, my uncle Antonio, my cousins Alice and Eleonora and my grandparents on my motherís side.
We usuallyWhen we stay in a camping site; we sleep in tents with two sleeping areas; some years ago the wind flew our tent off and we had to sleep in the car!!! If you want to sleep in a tent, you should buy a good one, which is designed for strong winds.
Some years ago we rented a house, which was very big and beautiful with a fantastic view of the sea.
I have always had a great time in Corsica, where I can do a lot of interesting activities, like diving or hunting octopuses with my uncle using a harpoon; going beachcombing, collecting shells, moving from tree to tree, clambering and walking along bridges and going up ladders, which are made of ropes and which link trees in the acrobatic adventure parks on the island.
My dad and I like walking on a rope clinging to another rope.
