I hope you had a wonderful summer! I wanted to tell you all about my summer holidays at the beach.

My family, my aunts, my uncles, and my cousin went to Croatia. We went by car, and it took us 7 hours to get there. We stayed for one week in a four-star hotel.

The weather was very hot and sunny but also windy. One night, there was a thunderstorm. I had so much fun relaxing at the beach, swimming, and diving in the sea. I also went to a water park, which was awesome. In the evening, we often went for walks.

For breakfast, we had a great buffet, and for dinner, we had a four-course menu. The food was delicious. I bought myself a necklace and three bracelets.

I hope you had a great summer too. Can't wait to see you at school!

Take care, Tamara

Hey there,

I hope you had a wonderful summer! Mine was perfect! I can't wait to share my summer holidays with you.

My family and I went to Mallorca, an island in Spain. We flew there from Vienna. Our flight was in the afternoon, so we had lunch at my grandmother's in between. We stayed in a 4-star hotel for one week.

The weather in Mallorca was perfect! It was always sunny and never windy, so there were never high waves. My family and I spent every morning on the beach. We dug a deep hole, went diving, searched for shells (I found a big shell), relaxed on the beach, and swam in the warm sea. In the afternoon, we were always at the hotel because the animation guys played games with us, such as water polo, slacklining across the pool, or running in big bubbles in the pool. We even had a foam party.

The food was delicious! We had a buffet every day, and on the last evening, we had a chocolate fountain. That was the best. I bought some bracelets for myself and my friends, and I also bought a desk calendar.

I hope you had a great summer too. Let's catch up soon!

Yours, Chiara

Hey there,

I hope you had a fantastic summer! My summer was great, so I wanted to tell you about my summer holidays at the beach. In August, we went to Rothus in Greece, where we stayed for one week.

My parents and I packed our suitcases the day before we flew to Rothus. The plane took off in the afternoon. The flight was great!

When we arrived, it was already 8 o’clock in the evening because our taxi driver showed us the island while driving us to the hotel. The staff was really kind; they even carried my suitcase to our room. Although the hotel and our room were really beautiful, I had to sleep on a couch, which was not really comfortable. After we unpacked our suitcases, we went straight to dinner. The food there was really delicious. Opposite the restaurant, there was a bar; they even had mocktails! After dinner, we explored the garden, which was really beautiful.

Throughout the week, we went swimming, played volleyball, and went shopping. It was really fun!

We bought some sunscreen because ours was too low for the heat. The weather was always super sunny and very hot, but it was also a bit windy, so the waves at the sea were very high. When we went back to the airport, there was a duty-free shop, so we bought some cultural souvenirs for our relatives.

I hope you had a great summer too! I can’t wait to hear about it.

Take care, Marion
