We stayed at a special lounge for 7 hours before re-boarding our connecting flight to Rome, Italy. Once we arrived in Rome we took a speed train to the main area of the airport. We collected our luggage and made our way to the “exit” doors , once the doors opened I could see some of our family waving frantically, to get our attention. We ran up to them to give them big hugs, for the very first time. We drove to my Mums region called “Abruzze” the car trip was about 1 hour and 45 minutes away from Rome.
My excitement increased day by day until we finally drove to the airport. Only then I realised that the newt few weeks, would probably be the best weeks of my life so far. Despite the rain falling and the long waiting in the airport, with our heavy suitcases we had to carry across the terminals, we kept are holiday mood until we reached the plane. The flight was longer than I expected and my seat was uncomfortable. I spent most of the time watching movies, which were on the televisions built in behind every seat, and talking to Tom about all the theme parks and tennis courts.
we said our goodbyes to Martin and Adam who were too hungover to go to us for breakfast. Cesar was a champ though, and took us to a pho place, he called hit his second home afterwards we drop him off at his place and stared our 10 hour drive back to Marshalltown. It was sad to see the mountains disappear in the distance behind us. I though back on the weekend and how much fun it was and most of what we did was just the thing that you had to do your first time in Colorado. Looking back to where we all were a year or two ago when we were right out of high school, but we had no idea how this would turn out that in just a year or two halves of our very close fend group would be gone doing a new thing in a different state.
The Best Holiday - Original Writing On the 17th of May 2003 I departed for Bangladesh. The reason I was making this journey was for my uncle’s wedding. The day I departed it was unexpectedly dull and chilly. I was excited because it would be the first time I was travelling to Bangladesh, where I would also meet my cousins from America. The journey was expected to take twenty-five hours, because my destination was about a ten hours drive from the Bangladesh International Airport, My uncle was going to meet me at the airport.
We prepared for this vacation for months! We were excited to finally be back with our immediate family members. We began to stack our luggage into her son’s vehicle. He was going to drive us to the SUX airport. The sun has not even appeared, and my wife and I were heading off for two months of unforgettable fun.
It was four am when we got the suitcase in the truck and a big cooler with drinks and food so we wouldn't stop every time we were hungry, and our road trip began me guess I was really excited that I sleep almost the entire day. When we were entering New Mexico there was still snow around so my parents decide to stop for a while to take a break and so we could enjoy the snow, my brother and I was really excited because we had never experience being in the snow, so we started doing snowman, snow angels and so on it was so much fun. My dad was exploring around the area when he found a little cave he couldn’t see anything , so he got a tree branc... ... middle of paper ... ...eat at this Mexican restaurant which was delicious. My uncle, aunt and my parents catch up while my cousins, my brother and I looked back at all the pictures our parents had taken and we were talking about the rides and how much fun we had. As the night continues, we said goodbye to each other’s, we did know when we were going to see each other’s again.
It was a month after my fifteenth birthday when he died. I flew back to South Carolina on an express flight. It was Thanksgiving time, and the planes were packed. I sat uncomfortably in the back of the plane, feeling like a foreigner dressed in my black garb. My grandfather's death was not a shock.
I was up for two days counting down the time until my trip. The night before my flight it felt like the night before the first day of high school, I was so anxious for the day to begin. I planned my outfit and was very serious getting about ready for my trip. My dream finally came true because, although I have a lot of relatives in Trinidad, I'm closest to my grandmother and it has been four years since I last saw her. The excitement was rushing through my veins.
At the time, I was too young and naïve to understand his perspective. But now, after he has passed away, I have begun to truly grasp the meaning behind the words he spoke to me. By the time my fifth birthday came around, I was on yet another lonely plane soaring through the hazy sky passing through cloud after cloud, waiting apprehensively to see my mother after spending two years apart. I quickly grew fond of my alleged “new home” in Puerto Rico, but like clockwork, in a year I reverted back to my former nomadic lifestyle. This time, I returned to South Florida and embarked on a city hopping debacle; u...
I enjoyed this a lot better than him just listening to music and then eventually falling asleep over time. Later that day for dinner my family and I went to Red Robin. At Red Robin they have the best burgers, but I had to be a vegetarian. I decided for the first time to try a veggie burger. Once the food came I was a little scared to try the burger, but it was actually really good.
