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

Last weekend we went to an incredible place. It was in the mountains, far away from the city. There were many wild animals, for example vultures [US: buzzards], golden eagles, etc. We stayed in a cottage where we had no internet connection, but it wasn't the end of the world because our goal was to disconnect and forget about stress. With the arrival of spring, we are going to organize many excursions since the weather is better and also the days are longer.

I'll be right with you...
