A Time When I Travelled To An Interesting Place

by Megan Goh (P5 2021)
        It was the June school holidays, and my parents chose to take my siblings and I to Paris and Beijing. We might even get to see the Great Wall of China and the Eiffel tower! I felt very energised as I expected to visit the Eiffel Tower and the Great Wall of China. The Eiffel Tower is the icon of Paris and has been a ground-breaking and unmistakable image of the city and the expansion of France. I had additional motivations to visit Paris. It is also a wonderful and social city, entirely walkable, with extraordinary sights, and it has been an inspirational city for some scholars, specialists, and movie producers. On the other hand, the Great Wall of China has a past dated more than 2000 years. A portion of the Wall has been ruined, damaged, or destroyed. My purposes behind visiting Beijing were uncountable. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else in Beijing other than to visit The Imperial Palace, Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven, and the Great Wall of China.
       Finally, it was the day we were going on our trip! I hoped that we might visit the Great Wall of China. I likewise desired to have the option to visit the Eiffel tower. I brought along my camera, trusting that I could take however many pictures as I could. As we were strolling to the plane, I saw a couple of air stewardesses. At the point when I was at my seat, they offered toys to my siblings and me. Feeling hungry, I requested for a burger and a packet of milo during mealtime. While eating, I watched my favourite film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (again) and before long, I dozed off.
       When we reached the airport in Paris, the air stewardesses woke us up. Exhausted from the long flight, we went to our hotel to rest for the night.
       The next day, we went to the lobby at our hotel to hail a taxi. We then told the driver to go to the Eiffel tower. When we reached the destination, we saw a lot of people! We saw Arc De Triomphe, Montparnasse Tower, and Champ De Mars. After taking a long walk, we were exhausted. I took lots of pictures. The next day, I found myself on the floor. I guess I must have fallen from the bed. I showered then brushed my teeth. Then, we went by airplane to go to China.
       Sadly, we did not go to the Great Wall of China as it was too far from our hotel. Instead, we went to the Imperial Palace, Forbidden City, and The Temple of Heaven during our four-day visit. I also took loads of pictures using my camera. It was really fun! In fact, I would like to go there again. If we go to Beijing again, we will definitely visit the Great Wall of China.
