My HW task

My HW task was to share my summer holiday pictures. Over the holiday, We went to Italy. we flew to Milan, then drove to Switzerland and back, then we went to Rome, Florence and Venice, Sorrento(a city along the Amalfi coast) some of the main cities of Italy and also Verona. It was really fun and we took lots of photos. We visited many famous place, including the Leaning tower of Pisa, The Vatican and the Colisseum. Also, the food was yummy, but sometimes the Italian food in Bangkok was better. When we had to leave, I wanted to stay longer because it was so fun there!

    I love these videos. Did you film that seagull yourself?

    What was your favourite city in Italy?

    You know you’re right, there’s some great amazing Italian restaurants in Bangkok. My favourite is Rossano’s… how about you?

      Hi Mr. Sam,
      I filmed the seagull myself in sorrento, the hotel Parco dei Principi.
      My favorite cities were Rome and the countryside because Rome had lots of Monuments and also delicious food, and the Countryside was nice and peaceful, and they had warm and homely food. I agree there are many good Italian restaurants in Bangkok, I have been to some. My favorites are Bacco and Rossano’s. They both have good mussels in white wine sauce, and some delicious specialty pasta dishes. My other favorite restaurant is Pan, because their desserts and pies are scrumptious, even though their food is medium.

      Thanks, Vicky!
      I filmed it in Sorrento. The view there is nice, especially at sunset, and it is very breezy. When the sun has set it becomes very cold, but in the day it is quite hot. It’s nice to have a swim in the ocean and also to just relax and read a book.
