  1. Well, my favorite kind of holidays is the adventure holidays in the jungle .I choose this one because i think that it's the only one that combines holidays, danger and learning .If i ever had the chance to spent my holidays in a jungle i will just do it but i prefer holidays with friends so i definitely take my friends with me .I'm sure that it will be like a survive game ,colourful plants, strange animals and tall trees, nothing is more interesting than this .I thing that holidays in the jungle is every person's dream because the human kind has born with the need for exporation.

  2. Dear, Iro

    The best kind of holidays for me is with my family or with my friends in an island. Something that I want to see in an island is the windmiles. Wildmile is a characteristic of an island. At some islands the houses are built in a slope so I want to see the view and how you feel when you are at a slope of a hill or mountain. We will stay at a hotel that it must have pool and breakfast. I want the island we will go to have some open air or indoors archaeological sites

  3. Dear Jane,
    How are you? I’m writing this email to tell you about what kind of holidays that I like. I love all kinds of holidays, but especially I fancy exploration and relaxation. That’s why I decide to go to a beach. It’s a marvelous place where anyone can swim, play and go diving. Anyone can also get rest and relax. The beaches are a major place where live both common and strange kinds of fishes. The beaches are suitable for families and companies. They are usually visited in summer. Here in Greece, there are a lot of spectacular beaches. Some of my favourite are the beaches in Paros and Lefkada!
    What do you think about it? Write back with your news!

    Yours,
    Vasia
