Autobiographical Writing Kiran Ul-Haq 10/66 " Are we there yet?" My sister called as we turned into Wycombe airport. With the amount of times she had repeated that phrase, even a parrot would have lost its voice. "Yes, we're here." My mum said. "Whoopee!" "Shut up!" I said. "Knock it on the 'ead," my dad shouted, "the both of ya!" We both instantly shut up. Later on, I watched the planes from the airport lounge's window take off one by one as my dad checked in and received his pilot's manual from the receptionist. It was the first time my dad was taking us flying. He wanted to show off his newly-acquired pilot's licence. We were going on holiday to Le Touquet, a little town In France. I wasn't impressed by these tiny, little aeroplanes and intertwining runways, like a miniature train set. They looked like ants compared to the jumbo jets we had flown in on past holidays. ...read more.


"They're so that we can communicate." Then after a short while he said," Oh by the way your one is broken Kiran but you can swap it with Aneeka's one if you want to talk to me and on the way back you can swap yours with Aneeka's." "Ok," I had learnt not to argue with my father from past experience. Mum attempted to doze off while dad looked through his pilot's manual and did numerous checks on the control panel. After about half an hour in the plane the engine was finally fired up and raring to go. The engine was louder than the next-door neighbours rock music. I tried to call my dad but it was as if my voice had disappeared. I understood why I had to wear headphones to communicate. Fifteen minutes into the flight and I began to feel queasy. "Mum I feel sick," I said through Aneeka's headphones. ...read more.


Thankfully we landed safely at Le Touquet airport. It was quite a bumpy landing but it was way better than how I had landed my planes on the flight simulator. At least we were still intact. Le Touquet airport was a lot larger than Wycombe airport but still quite small. We arrived at the perfect time; there was no air-traffic, beautiful weather, friendly tourists and we checked out pretty quickly. We took a taxi to the town. There were amazing sculptures and ingenious architectural wonders. We spent ages looking for a hotel to stay in, but most of them were fully booked. I enjoyed looking around for a while but my feet began to feel sore. We ended up staying in a lovely five star hotel on a side street about a mile away from the beach. The food was good, there was lots of choice and the weather was perfect during the whole holiday. If there was ever any way that I could travel in time that's where I'd be. It was definitely one of the best holidays I have had so far. ...read more.
