My holiday in: California
Tommy Bower, aged 10

WHAT I LIKED
My brother James and I are in-line skaters so we loved going to skate-shops and skating in Santa Monica and Escondido.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
I didn't like the walk in Muir Woods as it was uphill and there was one seat every two miles. Nor did I like crossing the border into Mexico, because it was just after we went to San Diego Zoo, and there were people asking us if we wanted to have our photograph taken with a zebra – except it was a painted donkey. I felt so sad.
WHAT I SAW
We visited Alcatraz, where you get to see what it was like in the cells. In San Diego, we went to the zoo and saw a baby panda. At Big Sur we saw a waterfall, which was really good.
WHAT I ATE AND DRANK
My favourite place was Taco Bell. I think there should be one in England.
WOULD I GO BACK?
In San Diego, we stayed in a great apartment on a pier. You could go down the steps to the beach, go swimming or play volleyball. It was amazing and I hope to go back to California next year.
