    Default a true getaway

    Please help me correct the following paragraph. Thanks!

    We had a splendid time eating and playing games in the Penghu islands. It’s a scenic place to escape into nature. The beauty remains strongly impressed on my memory. The Penghu islands are a true escape that unlike any other in Taiwan. It’s like a trip to a different world. Mine was a happy vacation. I hope I can visit there again.

    What is the purpose of this piece of writing? What are you going to do with it?

    This piece of writing is the conclusion of a manuscript of a prepared speech.

    ems' question is code for "Is this homework?" (I believe) and is meant to be answered in such a way that this determination can be made.

    It's not homework. I just rewrote the last part of a prepared speech which I have previously written and which I found some errors.
