Children’s Travel Writing

As you can see from the example, travel writing can read like a diary or even a story. BUT, remember, you must discuss the attractions and features within the place you visited.

It was a hot, summer day and my family and I were going on holiday to London and to York, England. We were going to stay at the beautiful York Hotel.

While we were on the plane, I asked my mother if I could look at my passport.

“I don’t want you to lose it,” my mother said.

“Puh—–leeeeeeze,” I begged.

“Fine, but for only a second,” she replied.

Just as my mother handed me the passport, I noticed my favourite show was about to start on the television. I put my passport down for only a second. We hit some turbulence and next thing I knew my passport was flying all over the airplane. My mother gave me “that look,” so I chased my passport around the plane. After crawling under several seats, and stepping over one very large foot, I caught it.
