Tawan's Holiday

Page history last edited by Tawan Banyatpiyaphod 10 years, 5 months ago

My Summer Holiday


Summer was finally here and my summer started with the Crusaders soccer camp at school. Soccer camp was really entertaining. After soccer camp I went back to Thailand with my brother, my sister, my mum, and my grandma. My dad came and visited me every two weeks.


In Bangkok I did a lot of activities. I had a Thai lesson twice a week. After a couple of weeks my mum found an Arsenal Soccer Camp. There I went three times a week and I was taught by very skillful Brazilian coaches. Additional to that I went to a seaside city called Hau Hin and it took 3 hours driving to the south of Bangkok. Whenever I went to Hau Hin, I enjoyed swimming and playing at the beach. When I was at the beach, I found a catfish and my sister found a human looking crab. My dad caught over 50 small fish. Not only joining soccer camp, I also had tennis lessons. It was really fun. After each tennis lesson I went to run in a huge running track. Connected to that I had sports camp, it was amusing.


Then I took the flight to Zurich, Switzerland and the flight time was 11 hours. Even though it was a long flight, I didn’t feel that it was a long flight because I slept almost the whole flight. I arrived in the morning then my dad went to rent a car. In Zurich is very cool because there are huge flower pots painted differently everywhere. Additional to that I saw various kinds of supercars such as Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Maserati and much more awesome cars and motocycles. Then I went to the biggest toy store in Switzerland called Schwaz Webber. I bought a remote control car. The rest of the day was boring because my sister was shopping only.


The next day my dad was driving to Austria. It took about 3 hours to Innsbruck. Then we went to the Crystal world by Swarovski. It was so awesome because everywhere was shinning. Later my dad was driving to Salzburg and we were staying in the Sound of Music house. We were staying in Maria’s room and the house was enormous.


Next day we visited the biggest ice cave in the world called Eisriesenwelt. It took a very long to go to the cave because we had to walk almost to the top of the mountain. When I went inside the cave entrance, it got really cold and really windy. Then I heard that the cave was 42km long but luckily it was opened only 1 km. It took 70 minutes to complete the whole distance. Next we went to the salt mine. We had to wear big white t-shirts and pants . Then I took a train to the middle of the mountain. After that we had to walk a little and then took a boat ride. Then there was a sign that said border line of Germany so now I was in Germany so I had to walk more. Then there were slides to go deeper into the mountain and that was the end of the salt mine tour and they gave us mineral salt.


After that my dad drove to Vienna and then I fell asleep while driving. The next morning I went to a castle called Belvedere and there was an art exhibition. I saw a very rare drawings drawn by Gustav Klimt. Later I took a train to Prague. Vienna to Prague takes four hours. When we cross the border of Czech they served us coke then I got surprised because the coke costed 0.49 euro. In Vienna train station it costed me o.50 euro to use the bathroom.


When we got off the train I saw my sister’s friend, Gabby. We spent a few days in Prague in the best hotel in Prague. Then we took a over night train and stayed in triple bunker beds. Then we arrived in Zurich and waited for five hours then I took a flight to Thailand. Then we took another flight to Korea and then I got so jet lag that I slept around four o’clock in the morning everyday and then school finally started.
