An Unforgettable Journey
An Unforgettable Journey
There will be days which are truly unforgettable in everyone‘s life. As for me, my journey to Kulangsu this year will be always remembered.
I was actually quite busy this winter vacation because I had very much homework. However, my parents still wanted me to enjoy this holiday and that is why we went to Kulangsu at the beginning of this month.
Kulangsu is a small island lying in the South Sea near Xiamen. There are plenty of coconut trees and mango trees on the island and you can see all kinds of flowers everywhere. In fact, Kulangsu is one of the most beautiful and relaxing places to visit in China. Thousands of people go there every day.
Luckily, we found a hotel there near the sea and decided to stay in Kulangsu for several days.
Every morning, we ran along the seaside for exercise. Kulangsu was very quiet in the morning, like a baby sleeping in a basket quietly. While we were running, the wind blew softly. In my mind, nothings can be more enjoyable than this.
One day, we ran along the road as usual. To our great surprise, we ended up spending about an hour running around the whole island! It was one of the most exciting things I've done.
Later in the morning, I did my homework in the hotel. Honestly, it was not as boring as I thought at first. When I was tired, I looked out of the window. Suddenly, the beautiful sea came into my view. Don’t you think it was amazing?
As for meals, we usually went out on to the streets to find something delicious. It was really bustling in town and we could see people everywhere. While taking a walk in the street, we hear beautiful music, saw delicate toys and smelled the fragrance of the town. We ate a lot of tasty seafood there and it felt fantastic.
Gradually, darkness fell upon the small island. Stars were shining brightly in the sky. The round moon rose slowly, just like a silver plate.
At this time, we couldn't hear the noise crowds anymore. Kulangsu became quiet again as it used to be. Not only did the people lie down to rest, but it seemed as if the island had also fallen asleep.
Three days later, we had to say goodbye to Kulangsu, and those splendid days staying there. Eventually we took the ship to leave the beautiful island ,and tears welled up in my eyes.
Now I am sitting in front of my desk. I should say goodbye to my winter vacation as well. However, this journey to Kulangsu won't be forgotten. Kulangsu and the happiness that trip brought me will be remembered, forever.
