Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Sébastien and I have always loved sailing. We learned to sail with our fathers who were very good captains. For our 20th birthday, we would like to go on a trip that would take us to the Caribbean. We would fly from Paris to Guadeloupe, and we would visit Basse-Terre for a few days. Then, we would rent a sailboat in order to cross from Guadeloupe to the island of Dominica. I've always been fascinated by the rain forest, so I would organise a visit of Morne Trois Pitons National Park. And finally, we would sail to Martinique where we would discover the local culture while enjoying its beautiful beaches.

I'll be right with you...
