I've never been to Italy but My dad, who has been there, told me about Italy a lot. He often told me about Venice, it's like paradise, it's amazing.
I havent been to neither Costa nor Turkey, but I also heard some about your countries. I love to travel to there.

My motherland is China.

China is one of the well-known Four Great Ancient Civilizations. It has long history, magnificent culture. It has a great collection of cultural and natural landscapes, such as the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City in Beijing, the five famous mountains, the Qinghai Lake, the largest inland salt lake in China, the West Lake, and mysterious Potala Palace in Tibet, etc.

I've lived in China for almost twenty years, and yet have been to less than three places other than my hometown, including the Qinghai Lake in Xi'ning, the West Lake in Hangzhou and Shanghai.

In our country, we have many traditional customs, like putting up the Spring Festival scrolls, shooting off firecrackers, eating dumpling in Chinese New Year, we all wear new clothes to usher in the new year. And we eat Tangyuan, namely rice glue balls and guess lantern riddles in the Lantern Festival, it comes on Thursday. And last night, I bought some Tangyuan, preparing to eat that day.

hello pupae... i'm anne from indonesia. i've ever been to Thailand before, it was 3 or 4 years ago. i think i already went to that paklongtalad and also went to the floating market. it was so excited when i was shopping in that floating market. eventhough in indonesia there are also some floating markets but the located is quite far from my place so i've never visited it :cry: . i also like tom yum goong very much. once i had tried to cook it but i guessed not as delicious as i had it in bangkok :wink: . o ya, i also take 'tuk-tuk' there and went to the night market (unfortunately, i forgot the street because you know thai language is hard to spell & remember :roll: ). that was so nice visiting your country :lol: when will you visit my country? we are neighbour, right?

Hi everybody. I’m 16 years old… My motherland is Sri Lanka, but I live in Denmark.

I will tell you about both of the countries:

Sri Lanka: It’s an island. It’s very beautiful. If you like tea it’s the right place! And the mountain (uphill countryside) is also wonderful. There are many waterfalls and lakes. And there are many festivals; like Kandy Perehera Festival, where many elephants go.

Denmark: it’s also very beautiful. Small Scandinavian country. There are many entertainments, and the most popular is Tivoli. But there are also many others, like “Bakken”, “Bonbon land”… etc…

and in the both of the countries there are many friendly and nicely peoples, like me :D
