Text for the first group

Is it the beach as usual for you this year, or are you planning to do something a little more adventurous? To give you some ideas, we sent five daring teenagers off on holiday and we got them to report back. Read on to find out more ...


Name: Amy Barker, 14
Holiday destination:

Sydney, Australia

We were exhausted when we arrived because the flight takes about 24 hours, with a stopover in Singapore. We all had jetlag and the first thing we did was go to bed! We were there for ten days, so we didn’t have time to travel around too much - Australia is huge and it takes days to get anywhere. We stayed in Sydney, but there was plenty to do there. I was a bit unsure when Dad suggested going to the Sydney Opera House (dance music is more my style!) but we saw a fantastic rock concert. The Harbour Bridge is really impressive, and I bought some great souvenirs as presents for my friends.

Recommended? Definitely.

Holiday destination: Skopelos, Greece

We go abroad every year, and I’d been to Greece twice before so I knew what to expect, but it was the first time I'd been to Skopelos. We normally stay in hotels, but this time we decided to try self-catering rooms. Mum and Dad soon realised that they didn’t want to do much cooking so we went out every night, which was great. I love Greek
food, especially seafood. We spent most of our time on the beach, and Skopelos has some great
beaches. The resort of Skopelos itself was a bit quiet, but I met a couple of local people my age so it wasn’t too bad. I’d had enough of the beach, really, after two weeks.

Recommended? Yes, although I prefer staying in a hotel.


Name: Rebecca Key, 13

Holiday destination: Summer Camp, France

It was the first time I’d been on holiday without my parents and sister, so I was really looking forward to it. At the same time, I was a bit nervous about meeting so many new people. It was a real adventure holiday. The camp was in the countryside and they’d organised things
like rock-climbing, horse-riding and canoeing. I soon made friends and we had a lot of fun. You can keep the rock-climbing (I was never very good at heights!) but the canoeing was brilliant! I keep in touch with some of the people by email and we’re planning to go again next year.

Recommended? Great for action-lovers. Didn’t meet any French people, though!

Text for the second group


Name: Simon Watson, 12

Holiday destination: Maldon Farm, Kent

We hadn’t had a holiday in Britain for a very long time. Usually, it’s Italy or Spain. Maldon Farm looked nice in the brochure, and it’s only an hour from where we live, so we got there very quickly. You stay in
rooms on the farm and you’re expected to help out with the animals every day. My mum and dad thought it would be good for me and my brother to learn about that sort of thing. Well, it just seemed to me more like hard work than a holiday! I enjoyed swimming in the pool, but we couldn’t use it for three days because of the rain! There wasn’t much to do and I was glad to get home. Mum and Dad seemed to enjoy it, anyway.

Recommended? Okay for people who like looking after animals.


Name: Hanna Bridgeman, 14

Holiday destination: Disneyland, Florida, USA

When my mum and dad said we were going to Disneyland, I thought, ‘That’s great for my sister (she’s nine), but what about me? I’m too old for people in Mickey Mouse costumes.’ I was looking forward to going to America, though. When we finally got there, I couldn’t believe it. The whole theme park is like a separate world. I ignored Mickey Mouse (and Donald Duck!) and headed straight for the rides. Space Cruiser was really cool, and so was the roller-coaster. In the end, we all had a great time. I’d say there’s something there for everyone.

Recommended? Yes, especially for families with young children.
