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.

Clever stuff happening!
