This summer holiday I went to Australia with Peter and other students from Panyu middle school and stayed there for over 10 days .We stayed in Gold Coast for a week and Sydney for 2 days. I really had a good time in Australia and I also learned a lot.
On the first day I was a little nervous about a new place without my parents and a place that I have never been to before but after I met Gary who was loise’s and my host family, I was very reassured. Gary is really kind, he took me to the Gold Coast and introduced it to loise and me on the first day , he bought us lots of ice-creams as well. He made breakfast, lunch and dinner for us .Everyday dinner s were different. Sometime it was fried noodles ,sometime it was pasta .He also cooked local food for us such as meat pie .It was really delicious .It had to be mentioned that I also met a new friend called Nayun, a girl who is from Korea .She taught me korean every night.
These days in Australia, I experienced a lot . For example ,the second day in Gold Coast I went to the MOVIE WORLD, it’s really a fantastic world .It has a lot of playing equipment, such as roller coaster , some car shows an the like .I had tried some roller coaster though they were not very exciting, I enjoyed all of them. I like The Spooky Coaster best because it was inside the house, it was dark inside so you could not see the road clearly just like a soul house.
Besides some playing equipment, there are also some beautiful shops , candy shops ,toy shops and some coffee shops .In general, I really enjoyed myself here.
The third day is Monday, so I went to school called Browns, a language school. From Monday to Friday I studied there ,my teacher is called Teurisa . She is from Indonesia .In the days at school, I learned much Australian knowledge .Every weekday I needed to get up at about 6:50a.m.and left home at about 8:20 in the morning because school started at 8:50 and it usually ended at 3:30 in the afternoon. It is more comfortable than China. Every day before we went home ,we usually ended up with a game on the phone .On Wednesday afternoon the teacher took us to the park where we played with some children in the park and fed some seagulls ,I bought an ice-cream because the weather is too hot. We walked on the beach and played some games with other students from Browns .On Thursday afternoon I saw snakes ,turtles ,lizards and I even touched the snake ,it felt really soft and the skin it cast off felt like plastic.
Friday was the last day we studied at Browns ,we had a B B Q in the park where we had some chocolate cupcakes, bread ,potato chips, sausages and some lemon juice .After the B B Q we had a little graduation ceremony ,a teacher gave us a small gift and took a photo with us. Study days were over, On Saturday we went to the Zoo where we saw many animals they were very cute and something amazing was that I fed kangaroos .The kangaroos jumped on the ground freely，without any restriction. After we visited the Zoo we went to see the busiest place in Brisbane ,I took lots of photos t here .Then we went to the Brisbane University ,it is very big and has strong learning atmosphere. Sunday was the last day I stayed in Brisbane ,that day I went to the Harbour Town. Harbour Town has many shops ,I bought many gifts there. That day also was my last day at my host family .Gary cooked us some Chinese food ,I was reluctant to leave.
We arrived in Sydney at about 10 o’clock in the morning. after we had lunch ,we could not wait to visit Sydney .First we went to the Sydney University ,it is much larger than Brisbane University, and it is much older. We went to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney Opera House ,The Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Hyde Park，Bondi Beach ，Queen Victoria Building，Sydney Aquarium，Mrs Mccauley seat，Museum of Sydney，St Mary's Cathedral，Darling Harbour in two days .
I really enjoyed these days in Australia ,I hope I will go to Australia by myself next time .In order to go to Australia alone i need to improve my English ,so I will study harder .
