My Last Vacation Examples

These are five examples of people describing their last vacations.

My Last Vacation Example #1 


Last year, I had the chance the amusement park , Zarcero and  Ciudad Quesada in a day. I went with my daughter, my wife and some friends. We woke up early that day and our friends drove us to the amusement park, my daughter enjoyed the many rides available, we ate pizza and  we left around three.

Then we headed to San Carlos, on the way to San carlos we stopped by the catholic church and took some pictures of ourselves in the gardens. We got to San Carlos around 5:00 PM , we had dinner there, picked some people up and headed home.

My Last Vacation Example #2

Last year I spent my vacation at the beach. I traveled with some friends of mine. We arrived at the beach at 8:00 AM, we immediately went to swim then we made some sandwiches for lunch. After lunch, we went to run and we left the beach before 6:00 PM.

We drove back to the hotel and we  had dinner there. Around 9, we called our friends and we met outside a dance club because we wanted to dance. We spent like three hours in the club and we got back to the hotel.

My Last Vacation Example #3

Last year, I went to Cartagena with my family and my best friend Luis. We visited my cousins Mayra and Alejandra. I hadn’t met them before, so I was really excited to meet them.

My first impression of them it was very good, they are friendly and fun. We went to visit many places but my favorite place was Barú island. That island is amazing, it looks like a paradise, I took many pictures. The food was excellent. We ate shrimp rice and shrimp cocktail. I had a great time with my family. We spent three amazing days in Cartagena.

My Last Vacation Example #4

Hello. I’d like to share with everybody the great time that I had on my last vacations. I went to Conchal Beach with my friends. We stayed at a small hotel right in front of the beach.

The first day we were there we took surfing lessons, my friends and I had so much fun hanging out at the beach.

There was another beach nearby, probably a five-minute walk and you are in Brasilito beach. We watched the sunset and we set a fire at night.

We spent most of three days in the beach and we usually went to club at night located in a place called Tamarindo. There is a beach in Tamarindo too. 

It was one of the most special times I’ve had in my life.

My Last Vacation Example #5

My last holiday was a five-day trip to Guatemala I know Guatemala well because I lived there when I was a missionary more than ten years ago.

Instead of staying in a hotel, I stayed with one of my old friends. It was so much fun.

I wanted to visit all the places I lived, so I visited Baja Verapaz. It has changed a lot. I also went to the supermarket near my old house. 

We did some touristy things too. We went to Tikal. Nature is amazing up there. We walked across the historic monuments.
