This is the description I had to make for my language class with Pilar Pando, hope you like it!
Task: Write a description of a place you’ve been to on holidays. Focus on the natural environment and/or one person you’ve met. Include the vocabulary learnt in class.
After long-lasting familiar discussions, we finally had chosen the destination of our journey. We were going on a trip to Canada! I have always thought Canada was very similar to the United States but I was completely wrong. Canada has nothing to do with the States.
I had never been to a country with such extreme temperatures like Canada. I hoped the breeze of the soft but crisp winter would delight me. I was very anxious and intrigued about this trip. Firstly, we were going to visit Quebec.
Situated in one of the most chilliest countries in the world, Quebec, is a unique city. What makes this city so special is the delightful blend of cultures it possesses. The strange but intriguing mix of the canadian, english and french traditions create a particularly marvelous atmosphere.
Every day I walked through the gloomy, mysterious and frosty allies was a totally new surprise. The french cozy pastries, the elegant chateaus and the blankets of snow that laid over almost everything in the city, were simply breathtaking.
The day we went skiing was an intense one. As I drifted through the snow-covered rocky mountains I could catch a glimpse of a black bear beneath a frozen pinecone. Although this activity was quite exhausting, when I reached the wooden cozy cottage and tasted the hot-creamy-chocolate, it was totally worth it. The warmth of the chimmney penetrated my skin and I felt like I was at home
I would totally recommend this place to people that are in love with winter, traditions and warm drinks. Also Quebec is a place for adventurous souls that are seeking for extreme experiences.
