What places would you like to travel to? Annie has been thinking about this a lot and wrote the following essay. Some of these ideas are turning into story ideas. Let her know what you think of her piece in the comments!
When I grow up, I am going to travel the world. It is my dream to travel, but I think I will stick to certain places that I dream to go to. My first two places I want to go are the Bahamas and Iceland. I love clear water and the mountains.The only clear water I have ever seen is in Florida over spring break. We couldn’t even swim because the water was to cold. I also would like to go to all the major snow skiing cities in Colorado. I love skiing on snow and on the water. I love to ride in airplanes and driving in cars, so I think traveling would be really fun for me. Seeing all the places on Instagram really makes me want to go even more.
Iceland seems so cool and fun because there are so many places you can go and visit. There are 3 main places I really want to see. Hot water springs, The Blue Lagoon, and Silfra fissure. Hot water springs is a place where there are little pools spread out and they are filled with hot water and have minerals that are good for your skin.
The blue lagoon is a place that is also a pool and has silicon bottoms that you can use for your face and the water is naturally heated. The workers there also pass around charcoal masks that you can use for your face and body.
The silfra fissure is a spring that has the clearest, most pure water on the planet. The water is so clean and cold that you can just drink strait out of it. The water temperature is 36 degrees! You wear wet suits so the cold won’t be too bad.
I also really want to go to the Bahamas. The water is so clear and pretty. I want to go swimming with pigs and go snorkeling. I would also like to go to stingray beach. You can catch starfish and go swimming. There aren’t actually stingrays there though. My cousins went and they said it was fun. I think this is a good idea for a person like me to do.
