A Holiday that changed my Life

Indirect QuestionsOn August 14th, I did a writing exam to check my writing skill. I had to write a composition about a holiday that changed my life. I hate exams but I had to do this.

“Think of a holiday that has changed your life for the better. Write a short text giving details about the holiday and outlining how it has changed your life for the better; approx. 150-200 words. (20)”

Read below my text:

One day, I was working as a help-desk attendant in a big company in Brazil and I thought: Where could I spend my working holiday? I had only a month to take a break and I had to decide what place I would like to visit. It would be my first trip alone. So, I remembered that I had a friend from Argentina and when she visited Brazil she invited me to stay in her house in Bahía Blanca, a city near Buenos Aires, the capital. Then, I called her and I went there.

My adventure began at bus station. I decided to go from Brazil to Argentina by bus. I spent almost ten hours on a bus from Rio de Janeiro to Foz do Iguaçu. It was strange because I realized that the most of the people would go to Ciudad del Este, a city of Paraguay, to buy electronic equipments and other things to sell in Brazil. I met two women on the bus and they helped me to find a hotel in Foz do Iguaçu to rest.

My trip was just beginning. I had a long journey until I arrived in Bahía Blanca. From Foz do Iguaçu I took another bus to Buenos Aires and from Buenos Aires I took another bus to Bahía Blanca.

In Bahía Blanca my friend was waiting for me at the bus station when my bus arrived there. I had only twenty days to spend in Argentina and she introduced me to her friends. Together, we ate some delicious barbecue. She was my Spanish teacher as well. She taught me many new words in the Spanish language and she was with me all the time. Together, we traveled to Bariloche, San Martín de los Andes and other beautiful cities in Argentina. I enjoyed my trip so much.

When I returned to Brazil I decided to change my life. I didn’t like my work. I stopped working and I decided to do something to feel happy. I entered at a university and I studied Tourism. Today, I’m a graduate of Tourism.

The End
