Introduction

Choose a place which you have vivid memories of, or which you remember as being particularly disappointing. Try to write in a similar style to Bill Bryson, to try to interest and entertain your reader. Riding along in the car I was so excited. "I'm finally here!" I kept thinking. After all the weeks of waiting, and the very long plane journey, we were finally here in Pakistan. On our way to meet all our relatives whom I'd never met before. An hour had already passed since we left the airport, and I was starting to get a bit restless. "When are we going to get there? Are we there yet?" I asked every 5 seconds. Each time, my dad replied "In about another hour No we're not there yet." An hour later, I'd stopped asking "Are we there yet?" ...read more.

I had some kind of stomach bug, and it was really awful. The hot weather didn't help, because I had a very high temperature, and I was sweating like a dog.

Conclusion

Thankfully for me, the kids weren't sick, it was just the grown ups. All we did was play all day. We had to prepare our own food, since he older people were lying in bed, no able to get up. Due to the fact that my parents were too ill to travel, we ended up staying an extra week until they were well again. This was okay with me, since I was starting to have a good time. I'd started to get used to the smells, but it didn't matter too much because we would just sit inside under the fan playing board games all day. On the way home on the plane, I thought about how much fun I'd had once I'd stopped worrying about the bad points of Pakistan. Even though we hadn't had the chance to go sightseeing al over Pakistan like we had planned to, I'd still enjoyed myself and relaxed in the last week of my holiday. Written by Zarina .
