During winter break Gabriela and her family went to Sri Lanka and the Maldives. The weather and air was much nicer there then it was here. They went there because her dad had to work and because they also wanted to go there for vacation. They went shopping, took tours around each place and swam a lot together. They also did and saw a lot of new things.
In Sri Lanka it was very warm so the pool felt very nice. Gabriela and her brother went to the pool and swam everyday while their dad was working. One day after they went swimming the whole family went on a Tuk-tuk safari. It was Gabriela’s first time in a Tuk-tuk. They took them to places where you can try mango lassis and hoppers for the first time. They also took them to a Saturday market where they tried spicy pickled olive things. They ended one day by sitting on the beach and watching the sunset together.
Once in a Lifetime
After Sri Lanka they went to the Maldives which was even hotter. The first night they ran into some people that lived in Delhi and they had seen before but didn’t really know them. Every day Gabriela and her brother would swim in the pool and the ocean with their new friends. One day the whole family went to a snorkelling tour where they saw turtles and stingrays. They had never seen so many stingrays. They also saw a ton of other fish while they were snorkelling. Some fish they had never seen before. One of the most fun things Gabriela and her brother did was parasailing. They were so high that it was a little scary. They had never been before.
