An Interesting Trip | IELTS Speaking Answer

A few years ago I was lucky enough to travel to Florida with some friends. We stayed in a house in Tampa and while we were there we also travelled to Disneyland and some of the other well-known theme parks nearby. We spent the summer holidays there and it was really hot and humid, but thankfully we missed the hurricane season which can sometimes be quite scary.

I went with my best friend and her younger brother and his best friend. It was a long trip getting there but we stayed for more than a month so it was worth it. We rented a house in a condominium complex, which was really nice because it was close to the coast and all the amenities but quiet and peaceful at the same time. We also rented a car because you really need a car to get around on a daily basis and also to drive to the theme parks.

We did most of the normal touristy activities in and around Disneyland and also spent some nice time just driving and visiting some of the local places and sights, and swimming in the pool in the complex.

The thing I most enjoyed was the food – really – it was great to go out and have a big breakfast at a diner every day and it only cost a few dollars. My favorite was the pancakes with maple syrup which I enjoyed several times a week while we were staying there. The weather was great too, although some days were extremely hot around the middle of the day, but inside it was cool because everyone has air conditioning.

It’s a trip I’ll always remember because it was different from other trips – because of the people, the place, and it was also longer than most other trips I’ve taken.
