Sample: What we saw in Canada We traveled across Canada by train from west to east. We saw many interesting things both on thewayacross and in the cities of Toronto and Montreal. We passed through the Rocky Mountains on the train and saw wild scenery,a grizzly bear and some mountain goats. In the center of Canada,it is a wheat-growing area and Thunder Bay is the busy port and ocean ships can come all the way to the top end of the Great Lakes.
In Toronto, we went up the CN Tower and saw the mist from Niagara Falls.We visited the covered stadium and Chinatown and had dinner at the Pink Pearl restaurant. In Montreal, we saw many signs and ads in French.Then we went to Old Montreal and sat at a café beside the St Lawrence River.We spent the afternoon in the shops and visiting the artists in their workplaces. There are so many things to see and do in Canada on our trip.We saw only a few things. We would like to have another visit to Canada!
My friends and I had a visit to the Great Ocean Road. We started from Melbourne. We drove along the freeway through the desert and forests. We saw some kangaroos and koalas by the road. Finally, four hours later, we arrived at the Great Ocean Road. At this moment it began to rain cats and dogs. In the heavy rain, the waves , winds and rocks looked splendid(壮观).I took a lot of pictures there. After a while, the rain stopped and the rainbow appeared. In the sun, the sea was deep blue and the rocks were golden. It’s so attractive that I have no idea whether I should keep still enjoying or take pictures .I enjoyed myself very much..
