My Wonderful Vacation
Last Sunday, I went to Qingdao with my parents. We went there by train. I loved it at once as soon as I went into the city. The weather there was fine and cool. We went to the beautiful beaches. We had great fun playing in the water. For dinner, we ate a lot of seafood. There were many big shops in Qingdao. We went shopping and we bought nice gifts for my friends. For examples, two key rings and a model dolphin. I had a wonderful time in Qingdao.
