Our family is incredibly lucky to visit some brilliant places – we have been to America, Jamaica, Austria and more, as well as living in London, which is full of things to do! However, there are still lots of destinations we would like to visit, and here are the ones that we would most like to go to.
My dream destination would be on the shores of Barbados. There would be a beautiful, white sandy beach just outside my front door, as well as the sea to play in just a couple of metres in front. I want to visit because I have always wanted to live on an island with palm trees and sunny weather!
Barbados is the perfect destination because it has everything that I want. I want to go there because it’s not as crowded with buildings and there is so much nature to explore. I would always be able to have fun as there are so many things to do there, such as water sports, making sandcastles, hiking, fishing, tree climbing, swimming and relaxing in the sun. The food and the different restaurants look absolutely delicious and there is a big variety to choose from.
I want to visit Barbados because it looks like the perfect place for adventure and learning new things. It also has much better weather than London!
I cannot stress how much I would love to visit Pompeii – it is packed full of fascinating history, and it amazes me how everything is perfectly preserved in time.
On the 24th of August in 79AD, Mount Vesuvius erupted, spewing tons of molten ash, pumice and sulphuric gas into the atmosphere and onto the town below, Pompeii. The city remained buried and undiscovered for almost 1700 years, before a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748. They found that underneath a thick layer of dust and debris, Pompeii was mostly intact.
This thrills me, and the thought of seeing a city frozen in time sounds incredible. Visiting Pompeii would be an unbelievable opportunity to learn about everyday life in the ancient world, and seeing the architecture, paintings and bodies of the people in the town would be amazing.
As well as this, our school’s Latin textbooks are based on Caecilius, a wealthy merchant who lived in Pompeii. His house still stands today and I would love to visit it! Overall, Pompeii sounds like a fabulous place to visit.
