From cold Finland to warm Spain

My trip to awesome Marbella was very fun. It was very hot, about 36°c every day. I almost died because I’m used to being here in cold Finland. My face and my shoulders were so red and they hurt. I burned in the sun, even though I used sun protection. I think, lying in the sun it’s not a good thing to my skin if I do it every day. People there keep out of the sun to avoid skin cancer.

My vacation in Marbella was such an excellent time. My hotel was next to the beach, which means it was so easy go to the beach. When I looked out of the window I saw beautiful sea side. Opposite of the hotel was a lot of a little shops were the locals sold clothes and different kinds of stuff. Tourists always shopping on this area. Me too and i bought some souvenirs.

I had my lovely big sister with me. She is 22-year-old. I’m lucky we were just together on this trip. A whole family would have been too much for me… Me and my sister love seafood, especially shrimps. Seafood and fish are popular in costal areas. One day we went to the seafood restaurant. At first we ate Spanish tapas. The Spanish tapa is a small dish of food served with a drink. Then we order salad with shrimps. We also like very much all kinds of desserts. The people of Spain have created hundreds of unique desserts. For dessert I order flan. It is famous dessert in Spain.

Sun was shining, the weather was sweet and my trip was great.

    Focusing on the weather was a good idea and you came full circle from the introduction to the conclusion. Next time try to include all your senses. Your story is very informative, I learned about the sun and the food culture. Always try to express something new in an essay!
