My First Long-distance Travel • I had my first long-distance travel in June this year. I went to Tibet with my husband . We went there by plane. But first we went to Jinan by car. Then we got on the plane. We landed on Chengdu and changed another plane to fly to Lasa. Then we took a bus to get to the hotel where we lived. It wholel journey took us one day.
My First Long-distance Travel • Flying on a plane is wonderful. In fact ,it was my first fly on a plane. After the plane took off ,it soon flew above the clouds The sky was azure/bright blue. I had never seen such blue sky before. And the clouds were like cotton. It seemed that the plane was flying above piles of cotton. The plane supply snacks ,drinks ,magazines for the passengers. I did nothing but watch out of the window and kept on taking photos. When I got off the plane in Lasa,I found the sky was also bright blue. I spent five days there. Whenever I got outside I would looked up at the sky,it was always bright blue with white clouds of different shapes flowing about. The blue sky and white clouds left a deep impression on me. After I returned home I often look up at the sky. It is ofen grey. I do hope our sky will be that blue .
