Going on holiday

My name is Jane and I want to go on holiday to somewhere exciting, somewhere fun and with lots of people. Last year I went to Spain for two weeks. I went with my parents and a few of my friends from school. My brother wanted to go to Germany, but I’m glad we went to Spain, it’s much better!

If I could choose somewhere this year, then I would go to Switzerland. I could go skiing and snowboarding and even have a snowball fight with my dad! I’ve been skiing before, but it was only for a day. If I went on holiday, then I could ski all week.
