this beautiful country.
I would like to recommend my hometown, Biala Podlaska, to my friends because it’s a historical town remembered from World Wars I and II. In the postwar period and until today, Biala Podlaska has been developing into a more modern city, but still retains many of the original features in the central Polish old town of the city. I recommend a visit to historical Museum Castle at the Radziwill Park.
I have traveled to Korea and Bali island. I took a plane when I went on vacation. When I went to Korea with my friend Yoshie. When I went to Bali island, I went alone. On March 25, I’m going to Alaska with my friend Sachiko. I want to see the northern lights. One day I want to go to Argentina. I want to see Iguazu falls.
