Postcard from my dream destination

The Speak Out Team are working with the creative writing group at Welland Park Academy and came up with a brief to Choose from: “Write a short story about living your dream life”; “If you could live any one day again, what day would it be?”; and “Write a postcard from your dream destination”. Here is one of our competition winners.

I am writing this postcard from Blackpool. What a strange place! I thought I was in Paris with the Eiffel Tower but I can’t be because everyone is eating fish and chips! Some people don’t think much of Blackpool but me, my brother and my mum have had a great time. We went on rollercoaster after rollercoaster at the Pleasure Beach, went to the Blackpool Dungeon and played on lots of arcade games on the pier. The best bit however, was the three of us staying in a hotel doing the bed test which is where you throw yourself on the bed to see how bouncy it is, staying up late watching films together and having a massive cooked breakfast in the morning.
