As I think about how to write this, I look around me. Everything reminds me of summer. I just can`t believe it`s over. It was just two months ago when school let out. I was so happy. Now it`s back to the old dumpster of everyday life. I guess I should get on topic with the whole summer thing.
At the beginning of summer, I went to Europe. After the extremely boring seven hour plane ride, we finally landed in Venice. We rented the top floor of some lady’s house for two days. We did a couple of things in Venice, mostly seeing museums and stuff. Since there is more to the trip, I will only mention my favourite thing. I liked the food but, the best thing was gondola ride. Then, we went to Slovenia, and met up with some relatives for a week. My favourite thing there was either the summer bobsled or, the bungee trampoline. We stayed a short while in Austria. We didn’t do too much there but we did go to Mozart’s house. We went to Munich and visited the BMW factory, my godfather, and the Munich zoo. Afterwards, we went back to Italy for a night before going home.
I went sailing a little bit but, if you don`t mind, I don’t want to get into much detail. I will just say I loved to sail the 420 sailboats they were SO FAST!!!
So I guess that’s the main stuff. This summer, I did a lot a swimming, lessons, practice and just hanging out in the pool. I also played some soccer, mainly playing right attack. I had lots of fun this summer. I did skateboarding and enjoyed the out of doors. I played some frisbee and shot some hoops in basketball.
I practiced piano this summer (I play piano) and did lego robotics. I also played quite a bit of video games, mostly the PC game called Minecraft.
I hung out with my friends a lot this summer. That was my Awesome summer.
