Describe an unusual holiday/vacation you had
You should say:
When and where you went
Who you went with
What you did there
And explain why it was unusual
The experience I am going to tell you is that I went to the Tekapo National Park, located on the southern island of New Zealand. To get there, I first flew for approximately 12 hours to arrive at Christchurch and then spent 3 more hours on the coach, a long exhausting journey. But I am telling you when I got there, I realized it was totally worth the effort.
I went there with a bunch of classmates about three years ago when we just graduated from high school, completed the college entrance exam, and turned 18. To celebrate those significant events in life, we decided to have a trip to someplace far away from home. After a lot of consultation and discussion, we chose New Zealand as our destination and the Tekapo National Park as a stop.
I did what other tourists would do there, sightseeing. The park is established around Lake Tekapo, which is famous for its remarkable turquoise-colored water. This article is from laokaoya website. On the shores of the lake, you will see the beautiful church of the Good Shepherd, where the altar window frames a perfect view of the Southern Alps beyond the lake.
However, what really makes this tour special and memorable is the night. The lack of light pollution makes the park a great place to appreciate the sky, which would be speckled with stars. As a person who was born in the city, grew up in the city, and still lives in the city, I had never seen such a marvelous view. I could literally see the Milky Way, which I had only read about in the book, lying over my head. It was like the fairy tale had come true.
