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

- Did you have a nice stay, Miss? - Yes, it was even better than I expected! I had spent so much time thinking about this trip that I could have easily been disappointed, but no, Paris really delivered! - Did you go outside of the capital? - Only the day when I went to Versailles, where Louis XVI's Palace left me speechless! - What else did you do in Paris? - I visited many museums that I found fascinating. And the food! I had written a list of everything I wanted to try, and I managed to cross out the whole list! - Well done! We've arrived. Have a nice trip home!

Clever stuff happening!
