The holiday of a lifetime
Having been in Canada, I tried to take advantage of being there and then
decided to go to the United States -San Francisco, to be precise, because this
city is ust ama!ing" It #as a holiday I #ill never forget"
It #as the first time I traveled alone and felt a little scary" $ny#ay I #as e%cited
and a little, although a little bit nervous" I #as supposed to transfer the flight in
&ittsburg but unfortunately the #eather at the time #as terribly bad,
conse'uently #e hadn(t been able to land for around ) hours" $ll passengers
started to be afraid of delaying, including me" To make it #orse, some identified
that smoke #as suddenly coming out - it turned out that it had been for
circulating the air later" *e became totally terrified"
Ho#ever, fortunately, #e managed to arrive at the airport in +uffalo, even if it
#as not the planned place" $ny#ay, the important thing #as that #e #ere fine"
$fter#ard, #e talked about this unforgettable e%perience #aiting for ne%t flight
#hich #as holding in Halifa%"
,very time I think of it, my heart free!es"
