My family and I took a 12-hour plane journey through different time zones, which made me get really bad jet lag; so I didn’t enjoy the first day that much. However, to be honest, I have to admit that the scenery there was so beautiful and appealing to me, especially the beach. The beach, after a makeover, was extremely breathtaking, and the crystal clear water seemed to stretch endlessly till the horizon. To make it even more attractive, the waves continued to crash onto the shore, sounding like a romantic melody from nature. Though I was a little tired, I was so excited that I just wanted to jump into the water right away.

While some people enjoyed swimming, there were a lot of people who preferred sunbathing or playing volleyball, team-building games or making sandcastles. My family, after swimming a lot in scorching hot weather, chose to come back to the hotel to change clothes before heading for some good seafood restaurants.

Actually, this vacation gave me a wonderful chance to have some days off, and all my worries seemed to fade away. Furthermore, it helped strengthen the bond between my family members. That’s why I am always looking forward to going on more holidays like this every year.
