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

What a surprise I got today! My boyfriend came to my house in the morning, he asked me to get dressed and to put a blindfold over my eyes. Then he took me by car and when I had removed the blindfold, we were opposite the Gran Tacande hotel. This is located in the other side of the island in Tenerife, and it is a spectacular place with stunning views of the beach and of the Atlantic Ocean. After checking-in, I bought some clothes in the boutique because I had nothing with me. It was a great gift!

How has your day been?
