Read the text. Then do Exercise 1.
We went to Cairo, Egypt last year with my family. We had a fantastic time. Cairo is over 4000 years old and there a many attractions to see. First we visited the Egyptian museum and learned a lot about ancient Egyptian culture. Then we went to the Pyramids and the Sphinx. The Pyramid of Giza is 4500 years old and is 139 meters tall. It used to be even taller standing at 146 metres! We also took a ride on camels. The Cairo market is very exciting. There are so many people trying to sell you things. My brother was shopping all day long when we went.
My family and I wanted to be outdoors. We didn’t feel like running around visiting museums and other attractions all day long. That’s why we went to the Pyrenees Mountains in France for a walking holiday. There are different walking programmes to choose from. Some are very difficult and some are easier. We walked through the mountains for one week. We saw forests, flowers, wild life and bridges. We would spend our nights in hotels in different villages. We had a guide with us and she made sure that we didn’t get lost. She also told us about the local history of the area.
We took a trip to Berlin for our Christmas holiday. Berlin is the capital of Germany and it is an amazing city! There are beautiful buildings, parks and many other attractions to see. The hotel we checked into was near Alexanderplatz and there were many cafés, restaurants and clubs we could go to. We visited the Dahlem Museum complex and saw many works of art from all over the world. For New Year’s Eve we went to the Brandenburg Gate and celebrated with many people. We had a lot of fun and one day I want to go again!
Last summer we went to my mother’s village Gerolimenas in Mani. We stayed there for one month and relaxed. We go every summer and have a lot of fun. I have many friends there and am very happy to see them. We have a place to stay and we don’t have to worry about checking in, checking out, passports, waiting at taxi ranks or missing our flight. The weather is always sunny and we swim every day. Every evening we go out with our friends and walk around the harbour. The only thing I don’t like about going is coming back to Athens when school starts!
