English: Select a place and write about the holiday there As I sit here, in my modern, chic caf´┐Ż with my parents, I sit and think about how breathtaking Miami is. I look out from the window and see couples, hand in hand, children playing with each other, but the thing that stands out is of course the beautiful blue crystal clear waters, and the silk golden sands that surround them. Now, on only my third day of my weeklong holiday with my parents, I have done so much already. Although the best part of the holiday so far, is the fact that I wake up every morning to an amber, golden sunrise. In England, a sunrise that pure and stunning is a very rare sight, yet the first morning I woke up in Miami, I got out of my bed and simply watched the sun rise. The atmosphere was one of peacefulness and tranquillity, it was like nothing at all could harm me, or that there was nothing wrong with the world. ...read more.


Some were paddling in the sea, while their cautious parents followed them. As I saw these children swimming in the sea, I decided to join them, as the water seemed relaxing. I couldn't have been more right, the water was soothing and to my surprise warm, as most seas are freezing, but as I have to keep on reminding myself, this is Miami.

We were set in Middle class, where a small amount of children were sat. The noise that can come from approximately three juveniles was hard to believe. I think that maybe it has put me off childbirth for my life. Although, the earphones that were given out to you at the beginning of the flight, which could be used to listen to selected radio stations and the film that was being shown throughout the flight. It was that simple yet effective device that soon calmed me down. Yet as you can imagine was extraordinarily worth it when I set foot out of the Boeing 747 and the Miami beams sun hit my face and body. From frosty, depressing and mind-numbingly boring England to electrifying, extraordinary and mind blowing Miami. Going to Miami was a vacation that I will never fail to remember, as the time I had was unlike any that I have ever experienced, and one that in the future I hope to see again. ...read more.

    However Ali was there so he 'asked' them to let me play and they listened to him. They were playing cricket with a leather ball, which is really hard and dangerous. They let me bat without shin pads and helmet, which was really stupid of me.
