Vacation Narrative [Model of the Past Simple]:

Last July, I went on vacation to Paris. I stayed there for 1 week. First, I went to the café to drink coffee and eat cheese. Then, I visited the Eiffel Tower. I also visited many churches. I took lots of pictures. I ate lots of delicious food and went shopping every day. I spent all of my money. Finally, I went to the king’s castle called Versailles. It was beautiful. At last, I returned home.
