Alone in Rhodes

EUROPE___MEDITERRANEAN_GREECE_RHODES_DES_000923__IXIAWithout a friend, we (my family and my sisters friend) arrived at the hotel. I was a bit sad for asking my friend too late to join me but I was still enthusiastically waiting for good food and sunbathing. At the hotel at first I tried the pool. I was a little disappointed in it because it was kinda cold always at first when you jumped in.

But enough of the bad stuff and lets hear the excitement. Every morning we got up early to go to the beach. There was always so much fun because there was this boat which pulled different shapes of air mattresses behind it. There were bananas there in which you could fit about 8 people, and then there were normal swimming rings. They were really extreme and I liked them.

There was also this water park we went to which had some sick slides. But I am still annoyed that I forgot to go to this water trampoline, but we did go to different free falls and other water slides and this insane half-pipe. I had a really great time in there because I was so young, but now it wouldn’t be that water_park_4_mod_small

Back in the hotel there was this bar next to it where you could have drinks, ice cream and some food. I loved the strawberry ice cream and I miss it so bad. I ate like two of those in a day. But overall my trip was not that great. Without a friend it was most of the time boring. But I did manage to do something. I read the six hundred page Harry Potter and the half-blooded prince in two weeks which is my personal record.

    Ha hah, funny ending! Did you read it in English? Wow.

    I’m not sure if I understood why your title indicated loneliness… Maybe you should have referred to the waterpark instead, something like “A Wet Holiday.” You write rather fluently, but in spoken English. Try to use more challenging vocabulary and full sentences + look at my notes below!

    – kinda = kind of, rather
    – let’s = let us
    – I had a great time __ there
    – I miss it badLY (adverbi, how)
    – like = abut
    Avoid overusing ‘this’, it’s spoken English!

    What a shame that your friend didn’t join you! The text was good to read and you described well your trip, especially that waterpark. It sounds like so much fun! And nice pictures too 🙂

      You have to be a bit more critical than that in order to be constructive!
      – described your trip WELL (SPOTPA!)
