Introduction

A significant journey in my life. As my family and I were returning from our short summer vacation in the in the mysterious and magical island on Bermuda a very unexpected, sad but true occasion occurred. After I had witnessed this occasion my view on life has never been the same again. The day we leaving to come back home from our travels abroad was one of the hottest days I will probably encounter in my entire life. We were in our taxi and travelling about 20mph because of all the traffic, there was 5 people squeezed into a little car and the sun was beaming down on us through the sunroof. All I wanted to do was get out and run a cold hose all over my body, my whole was feeling sluggish and tired due to the heat. We were driving along the edge of the beach, we could see people jumping in and out of the water, and running along the beach with a football. As we drove down that road we could see the little public toilets and little huts along the edge of the beach, the little huts were trading places, during 6 in the morning and 11 at night little men would sit in portable chairs and sell sunglasses and hats, deck chairs, or refreshments. ...read more.

a few minutes of everyone being in silence, the driver asked me whether or not I enjoyed my trip, as expected I said yes, and explained what I really liked best. Then he asked my sister whether she had bought anything good and she replied by saying 'a few things, yeah' I think everyone was feeling really tired as the sun was making everyone feel a bit weary and lazy, but the driver had a load of energy, that he wanted to release. We were now getting closer and closer to the airport as we could start to see road signs, every time I saw one I thought it would be the last one before we actually reached the airport, but the after about 5 different road signs saying 'airport' I was starting to think it was quite a distance away, I was wrong again the one after I gave up turned out to be the airport. Finally we had reached the airport. I got out of the car and went to get a trolley to carry all of our suitcases, by the time I got back the driver had gone and the suitcases were ready to load onto the trolley. After we had loaded the trolley we made our way down to the checking in area were the queue was pretty long, but was moving swiftly. ...read more.

After the guards returned and asked for one person from each family to accompany them while they see what the product that was being detected was. My dad was in the bathroom so my older brother went instead. After about 10 minutes he returned and said that the computer read it wrong, without delay we swiftly made our way to the boarding area to get on to the plane back to England. Just before we were boarding my dad received a phone call on his mobile phone, I overheard a bit of the conversation, he was talking to his friend about how the guards and how they only kept us behind because of the colour of our skin, he said that it is terrible ever since 9/11. When we all ready to leave on the plane the Muslim family walked down the isle late, and as they past our isle the Muslim man said to my dad ' Ridiculous innit' my dad sighed. During that journey home I really thought about how difficult it must be some people who must have it so much more worse then us. I know that racism is a factor in the world nowadays, although it is only a small minority of people that are racist. Ever since that journey home I have seen the world in a different light.
