Bonus Activity

Bonus Activity
Write a letter to a friend or family member to tell them that you are going to visit your country of choice. In your letter, please tell them where you are going, why you have decided to go to the particular country and how long you will be away. Feel free to invite them to join you, if you’d like!

Letter To Parent Dear Family,
I am going to visit Germany, in Germany I would be visiting the Brandenburg gate and the fountain in the Linderhof Palace.The reason why I'm visiting this country it’s because it’s very beautiful and very interesting.


  1. Hi Macky!

    I really enjoyed reading the letter that you wrote to your family. It was very nicely addressed and you have two very good reasons for visiting Germany. The Brandenburg gate really is stunning! I had the chance to see it a few years ago with my sister, Leigh. She and I met up in Berlin for a few days and we did a complete tour of the city. It was beautiful! There was so much to see and do and so much to learn.

    Germany really is a country with a very rich and dynamic history. Did you know that the city of Berlin actually used to have a wall that separated one side (the east side) from the other side (the west)? The people of Germany were not allowed to cross the wall. They had to remain on 'their' side. It must have been so hard for people who had family and friends who lived on the opposite side. I am so glad that the wall was taken down a number of years ago and that everyone in Germany is now allowed to travel freely!

    I hope that you will have the opportunity to travel to Germany one day. I think that you would love it!!

    Cheers, Rachel

  2. Hi Macky,

    Thank you for writing your letter, it was so nicely written to your family. I really like how you told them what you would be visiting while you were there. With 10 brothers and 4 sisters, I'm sure that they would miss you all very much!

    I think Germany sounds like it will be an incredible country to visit. They have a lot of beautiful, old churches that have been around for many centuries that you would be able to visit as well. How long do you think you would like to visit for?

    Well done on doing all of the bonus activities so far Macky! You are doing a wonderful job. Keep up the great blogging and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family.

    Happy holidays,
