You should say:

  • how you reached there
  • what you did and with whom you did that

and explain why it's so special.

Model Answer:
The best holiday in my life was the holiday I had with my parents and sisters 2/3 years back. I work in the capital city and visit my hometown 3-4 times in a year. That time I got a week’s holiday and I planned to give surprise to my family members. I reached home at around 1.00 am and my parents and siblings were very happy and surprised. They became even happier when they heard that I have got a vacation for 7 days. My mother next day called my elder sister who came to visit us that day with her kids.

The next day we went to watch a movie in the theatre and we ate our dinner in a Thai restaurant. We return home at late night and then played some indoor games.
Next day we went to a nearby picnic spot and that was a very pleasant experience. We cooked our food and to our surprise, that was delicious. We played outdoor games, ran in the fields and swam in the water. This was a truly great day that I enjoyed.

Since my vacation was getting over, my parents planned to visit our grandparents’ house. Though our grandparents are not alive, still we cherish the place and enjoy our stay there. In the next morning, we started our journey in our automobiles. It was a bit tough to get all of the family members in the car yet we did that. There were total 9 people in this medium size car.

In the evening we reached at our grandparents’ house where only one of my uncles and his family members live. We went to visit the nearby river and enjoyed the open and fresh air. In the evening we returned home and had our dinner together. Our 2 days’ stay there passed very pleasantly and quickly. I returned to our own home and the next day I returned to the city. This holidays I had is a memorable one as I get very little chance to meet and spend time with all of my family members at a time.

It was last summer,during holidays.

I was going to a summer camp in Lozère,lost in the countryside…

I used to like the rain…but it was before these holidays !

First, I thought there wouldn’t be anyone that I know in this summer camp but…SURPRISE !

While I was waiting for the bus with my mum and my sisters,I saw Pierre on the parking lot. He was a guy who didn’t like me very much ,and Lola,the super-existed-always-running-everywhere-and-always-overreacting girl.

It was gonna be GREAAAAT !   -.-‘

So, was it apart from a little apprehension when I got into the bus.

Lola spoke to me all the way to the camp,and she had made friends even before we arrived.
When we got out of the bus,I saw an old friend.
Hugo was a cool and friendly guy and I tought:  » Now it’s ok,I’ve got an ally in the place ! »
after this,we opened our suitcases and we chose our beds and tentmates: I was with Lola,Léa (a girl who spent her time on her phone,chatting with her boyfriend…UNTIL 3:00 AM !!!),Emy (a cool girl) and Marine (you can call her queen bee…),Emy’s step-sister.
We were the only girls…
So,after settling down,the camp started.
The first weeks, it kept raining and we were freezing cold. So we played ping-pong and UNO in the activity room all week. There was no hot water for the shower and no hairdryer (which is not a big deal…BUT THE TEMPERATURE OUTSIDE WAS ABOUT 5°C AND WE SLEPT UNDER TENTS !!!) the food was aweful and in such a limited quantity !
I was totally desperate and depressed.
Eventually the sun rose the second week and we did some interesting activities like cannyoning,climbing,biking and games. We even did a night walk under the stars: IT WAS AWESOME !
But the food was the same as the first week and we started to get hungry after all these activities.
When we went to town,evryone,bought food… LOOOOOOTs of it !
But it wasn’t enough and boys started stealing food in the fridge and in our bags: In three days,all my candies and sandwiches had disappeared ! And it was the same for my roommates.

I was so mad at them but we couldn’t say anything or they would have hit us: I felt so hopeless !
The summer camp’s chief yelled at us when he found out and the farewell party was about to be cancelled !
In the end,the party took place and we all got back home.
When I finally laid on MY bed,in MY house,far far faaar away from Lozère,I felt SO relieved !

It was my worst memory ever !
