    I’d like to go to Brazil. Brazil is country of passion. I’d like to experience their passion and culture, especially a Samba Festival. Brazil is a huge country, so there are many places I can go. The Amazon River is also an interesting place. It can be dangerous but it’s amazing. Brazil is popular for soccer as well. There are really many games and teams. I can enjoy it.

      A lot of people or young students often travel Europe to see all the countries. All you need is a great backpack, good shoes and some money. ( You don’t need a lot of money) It is a lifetime experience. You should do it when you are done school.

    I would like to travel to Spain. When I was a high school student, I read the book about Spain. Actually, the writer studied abroad in Spain, so she knew about Spain well. While I was reading the book, I was excited about Spain. I thought Spain is very enthusiastic country. Also, I felt that Spanish people have humor, and they are very kind. Therefore, I want to go to Spain, and I hope to experience their culture.

If I win the lottery, I will give all money to my parents. This is because that my parents are more intelligent than me, so they can use the money wisely. I’m sure that they will give some money to poor people.

Every people want to interesting and funny. Sometimes simple and normal is so boring. So maybe people find lots of other thing. if I won a lottery, I will very happy. First, I check how much the prize is, and I will give to my parents the half of money. I want to save the money to the bank. After that I will go world trip or emigrate to other country.

    This video is funny except the guy who was tricked. Tricks could be fun and good if the man who is tricked is cool and understand. However, if the man is uncomfortable or angry, we should stop and say sorry. Nothing is better than too much.

If you come in Cheonan, you should go independence Hall. This is about Korean culture and history. Also, It gives a lot of information when Korea was under the Japanese Ruling Era. Cheoan has a local specialty. One of the specialties is small walnut-flavored cake in the size and shape of a walnut. This is so good.
