Letztes Jahr bin ich nach Österreich gefahren, um Ski zu fahren. Das Wetter war sonnig aber sehr kalt. Wir sind nach St Anton gefahren, wo man auch snowboarden kann. Meine Eltern sind wandern gegangen, aber ich bin ski gefahren, weil ich wandern langweilig finde.

Nächstes Jahr werde ich nach Italien fahren, weil ich italienisches Essen köstlich finde. Hoffentlich wird das Wetter sehr schön sein. Wir werden Tagesausflüge nach Rom machen und viele Sehenswürdigkeiten sehen. Spitze! Ich bin Sport- und Bildungsurlauber!
