The Digital Nomad

Today was the final day of my bus journey from Lhasa to Kodari, at the border with Nepal. It’s the highest road in the world. It’s also a very long journey. You travel for three days through the Himalayas and you can see the north side of Everest.

This afternoon, we were only ten miles from Kodari and suddenly the bus stopped. The driver got out and looked at the engine. For the next three hours, he tried to fix it, but it didn’t start.

Finally, a lot of the passengers got out and started walking to the border. I felt sorry for the bus driver because he looked a little sad. However, I also wanted a good hotel and  a hot meal so I left the bus and walked to Kodari too.

Dear Students, the article above is from the website of Andrew Evans who is a digital nomad. Could you please write a short travel blog about a journey or place you visited. Think about these questions:

  • Where were you?
  • When was it?
  • Who was there?
  • What happened?

  1. Dear Sir
    I will talk about the last week journey in this text. My cousin and me we were bored and we are were looking for an activity. We decided to go to Germany. After we went to Germany. I think Germany is a beautiful country. So we wanted to go. First day we went to Hamburg. Because we wanted to see historical places. We saw lot of places. They were all beautiful, but I think the best is Trostbrücke. Because Trostbrücke is very impressive. We stayed at Empire Riverside Hotel that night. It was cheap and it was comfortable. Second day was very terrible. Because I stoled my wallet. We went to Police office, but they didn’t find thief. I returned early because I don’t didn’t have enough money. First day was beaUtiful , but the second day was terrible. This is my journey.

  4. Hi Sir,
    When I was ten, I and my family went to Izmir. There is a very big aquarium in Izmir. There are a lot of fishes and sea animals in aquarium. Normally I love shark but I am afraided of shark, because I was very youth. Then I saw very big fishes and sea snakes.After then I was suprised because I first time saw diver it was the first time I saw divers.The diver dived into the water and he cleaned the aquarium. The shark wasn’t didn’t harm to the diver because It wasn’t hungry. When It is hungry, you should BE afraid because It is very dangerous. It can eat you. So the divers should be very cautious. Then we looked around in Izmir. There were a lot of beautiful historical places in Izmir. We visited Clock Tower, Kemeraltı, Kızlaragası and Alsancak. I loved It’s historical places. So I liked hear there. There were many people in Izmir because the tourists visited historical places. I think everybody should go to Izmir. The bad thing was that It is a hot city for Izmir but, you don’t worry, because Izmir’s sea is very beautiful and cool in the morning. I felt very happy in Izmir. So always go to Izmir every summer. Certainly you should visit to Izmir.
    Thats it!

    Last weekend, I decided go to Egypt so I booked a plane ticket.

    In ON friday, I went to Egypt at 11:00 p.m. My travel was very tiring. The plane landed in Aswad İnternational Airport at 2:00 a.m. I took taxi for TO go to hotel. I directly slept. After breakfast, I went to Egypt Pyramids.It was very interesting because they were huge. Keops the biggest pyramid in there. It is 146.50 mt. I didn’t understand “How was it builTd?”. After the trip I went to the city center for lunch. I ate Ommu Ali. Ommu Ali is dessert. It was delicious and includes sugar. Suddenly my mother called me and “I miss you when are you coming here?”. And than I went to the airport for taking ticket. I bought one ticket from Egypt to Istanbul. The plane took off in airport at 4:00 p.m. When I was on the air , a bird crashed the plane so the plane suddenly landed in Antalya Airport. I was scared. I took ticket by bus to go to Istanbul. I went to Istanbul at 2:00 p.m.

    I told her what happened.But past is in the past. Now I’m fine. that’s it.

  11. Hello Mr.Nazmi
    Today was the first day of my journey from İstanbul.Istanbul is one of my favourite cities in the world. I love the mix of old and new, the traditional and the trendy.The most important thing to do when planning a trip to Istanbul is to allow enough time to explore. Too much to see and too little time is a common catch cry from those returning after a visit to this wonderful city.Ramadan Feast this Month.Everyone make the evening meal during ramadan, and I with my parents.Ramadan feast is very important to muslims people.
    It was very nice to journey Istanbul.I think everyone should see istanbul.

    I will to explain my last travel fot you. I went to to an Aegean tour with my friends this summer. We stayed at a lot of different beaches about 15 days. This travel was very costly expensive and tiresome. We spent too much money, but it was really enjoyable. Firstly, we went to Aydın and Izmir. Izmir is a lively a city. I liked these city. One day, when we were in Izmir, we went to a jungle. But after that we lost in the jungle. We were 4 friends and ran for 3 hours. It was really a bad day for me. On the 5th day, we went to Marmaris.
    There are very good places in Marmaris. It has a lot of seaports. The seas are inspiring for me. When we go to Marmaris, hanged out in Aksaz. I know Aksaz very well. Because I lived there for 7 years ago. We came back after 15 days and my travel finished. The travel made me feel very tired but worth it. I hope you have good remembrance????.

    I went to Marmaris in Mugla with my family. We stayed in a hotel in Marmaris. The hotel had a large pool and every night there was entertainment. There were many tourists.I had friends from most tourists. There were alcoholic beverages and it is free. Muğla has a lot of bays. We went to bays with a boat tour. Everything was so beautiful. Everywhere was in blue and green and the music was playing and people were happy.There were many different places there. After staying at the hotel , we slept in tents somewhere. It was fun but there were so many flies. Thanks God, there were fly drugs. There was a big lake beside the tents. There were huge caretta carettas in the lake. I swam with them. Then left Marmaris and come back Izmir. It was a long and exhausting trip.
