While on holiday in Egypt. Sarah has been sightseeing and ridden a camel.
While on holiday in Sicily. James has seen ancient ruins, gone swimming and climbed Mount Etna.
b) I think James’ holiday in Sicily is the most exciting. Apart from seeing the ancient culture and enjoying the beautiful beaches, he’s been to Mount Etna. For me, climbing a live volcano is really exciting!
c) Hi Tammy!
I’m having a wonderful time here in Santorini, Greece. I’m staying at a small hotel. It’s a really beautiful island and there is so much to do! I’ve driven around most of Santorini on a quad bike. I’ve been swimming every day and I’ve also tried scuba diving. It was amazing!
Yesterday I went shopping for souvenirs and then I saw a film at an open air cinema. Tomorrow I plan to climb the volcano here! I’m so excited!
Bye for now,
