The most interesting place was Baños de Agua Santa in Ecuador, my country. It was a wonderful trip, we have been three times. We visited many places in three days. But, its interesting how every year there are more places to visit. My favorite it was the Animal Park or maybe La Casa del Arbol. You can visit us and know this beautiful place.

I think the most beautiful place is Baños. This city is in Ecuador. I went to Baños two months ago with my boyfriend. We have visited the hot springs, Baños is known for its hot spring many tourists came in that place due to this wonderful water. Moreover, we have swum in the pool named “la Virgen Maria” that place is big and nice. Then we have been in the “Pailon del diablo” we have to walk on trails to get there; this place is famous in Baños. We were going to go the Dinos park, but that place was full, so we decided to go back home.

I think one the best places I've ever seen is the Grand Canyon. I saw it in 2017, when I spent part of my summer holiday in the USA with my parents. In the USA we've seen also other wonderful things, and I don't know which one was the best.

I'm from Myanmar. I have not gone oversea yet but I want to. The most interesting place in my country is Shwe Satt Taw. I had a wonderful time there. I played in the stream and I could feel the beauty of nature. I saw many animals that I've never seen. I want to go there again.

I was in different places, but I was very small child in some of them. For me, the best place I have travelled to - the place I remember the best. Azores. I didn't send a postcard when I was there.

Hi I've travelled to many places with my family. I live in Germany. We travelled to South Korea (where my parents are from) Croatia Italy Austria France Netherlands Czech Republic Switzerland I think the most interesting place was South Korea. (I was there many times) I like it there very much. But I didn't send there any postcards because it's too far away from Germany and difficult. If we go there this summer, I will send one.

So far I have only visited a capital city of my country and I absolutely loved it. It isn't as big as other capitals because I live in a small country, but it has huge buildings and so many green places. I want to live there when I grow up.

The most interesting place I have travelled to is Thailand Phuket. There are a lot of beautiful beaches. I like the best wild beaches. The landscapes there are gorgeous.Thai people are very kind and friendly. There are a lot of different exotic fruits in Thailand. I've seen a lot of monkeys on the islands. They are cute and funny, but don't try to pet them, they can bite you. Just enjoy watching them. That is enough.

I have traveled to Germany for 2 weeks! It was terrific. First, my family and I visited Museums and palaces in beautiful Berlin and after 3 days we went to Munich! My favorite city is Munich so we stayed in Munich until the end of our tour. In Munich I watched game of my favorite football team at Allianz arena and It was my best moment when I met my favorite player after the game. I took a lot of pictures of streets and we went to old places. I had a lot of fun with my family and we ate Germany's foods in wonderful restaurants and then we went to France, after 5 days we got back and I was really sad because I'm still thinking it was pretty little short!!! Love that country , my best memories...

Hey! Yes, your journey sounds super! I live in Germany. I like travelling so much and I visited many countries in Europe, I was in New York and some towns in Australia, either. It was great, so I don't know what journey I most prefer. But now I can't travelling. Bye.....
