It is really hot these days and everybody is looking for some refreshment. Some will find it in the sea, others in the mountains or even in a city fountain.
A lot of children have already been on holidays, yet there are also those who are counting the days until they leave home.
Kaja Štempelj Petrovčič, a sixth grader at OŠ Vič, is right in the middle of hers. And she is really enjoying herself this summer.
I’m very happy with the summer holidays, which this year started two days earlier than usual.
There are a lot of holidays in the school year, but these are special, as they last for ten weeks.
I believe that everyone has been making plans for the last month as to how they will spend the time.
Some want to use it for cycling, some for a trip, some for relaxing by the sea, and some spend the time lying on the couch and watching television.
My holidays are varied. At the end of school we first went to the water park Istralandija, which is in Croatia. There are super water slides and pools there. I could hardly wait! Then, with my younger brother Tim, we went on a camping trip to the Kolpa River for 10 days. First, we had a long three-day hike, then we bathed in the river and practiced our camping skills. We also did a survival course and some other fun things.
Since our family loves to travel, this year we are going to Greece and its sunny beaches, where everyone will take a surfing course, and we’ll also go around the city and have ice cream. Oh, there’s nothing better!
Well, unfortunately, holidays are not infinitely long, so I will gradually prepare for the next school year. But this is still far, very far away.
