My Holiday

Extracts from this document...


My Holiday English Personal and Imaginative Coursework This was the boarding day itself, the day which I had been dreading for weeks but also ecstatic about. The day started early for me, getting up at four in the morning due to the fact that I couldn't sleep that night. I felt mixed emotions as I was lying in bed, I was extremely excited for my vacation to Hong Kong since it was going to be my first ever holiday abroad. The fact that I would be flying on an aeroplane as well also made me feel petrified. The thought of around 60 people on an aircraft approximately 8,000 metres above sea level, on a plane that could catch on fire at any moment was absolutely terrifying and I was also told by my parents that the flight would be just about 13 hours, would be absolute torture for anyone who it was going to be their first flight on a plane itself. ...read more.


Unexpectedly something suddenly vibrated in my front pocket. "You don't have to buy anything for me, just come back safely." It was a mobile phone message I received from my friend.

Banners were above the shops and the lights sparkled spectacularly in assortments in the sky. The mayhem traffic on the streets, people were shouting abuse in their cars as they waited to drive. "Wow" I was truly impressed with the gigantic skyscrapers which towered over me. After walking a few minutes, it began to drizzle. We hurried over to the nearest shelter which was an alleyway; a small signs printing "THEIVES ABOUT" alerted my attention. From the glamorous streets of Hong Kong, we found our self at the other side. "Do you have any spare change please?" a crippled old man asked, a tear soon appeared in my eye, how could anyone live here in such unhygienic conditions when the other side of the city was the total opposite. The stench of urine passed through the air and we quickly made our way back. We then checked into a five star hotel, I was knackered! I changed into my pajamas and I dreamt of what a magnificent day I had and many more days to come. ...read more.
