My Trip to Hawaii (去夏威夷的旅行)

Introduction (出發)

Hawaii Beach (夏威夷的海灘)
十一歲的時候,我和我的家人去夏威夷玩。我們從舊金山坐飛機到夏威夷的一個小島叫毛伊島。本來三個小時就會到達夏威夷,可是我們的班機誤點了。我們五個小時之後終於飛到毛伊島。我們一到了機場就看到又藍又漂亮的海灘。

When I was 11 years old, my family and I went to Hawaii for vacation. I flew from the San Francisco Airport to an airport in Maui, a small island in Hawaii. Supposedly, we were going to arrive in Hawaii within three hours, but our flight was running late. As we neared the airport, we could see beautiful, blue beaches below. We finally got to Maui after a five-hour flight.

我們除了看火山,還有去看夏威夷美麗的日落。我們在海灘上看著溫暖的太陽慢慢的降下地平線。太陽完全不見的時候,我們都說:「喔~」一聲,很有趣。

In addition visit the volcanoes, we also got a chance to watch the beautiful Hawaiian sunset on the warm beach. We sat on the soft sand watching the sun slowly sink into horizon. When the sun was almost completely gone, everyone went, "Oh ~"; it was very interesting.
