My Holiday Vacation at Prambanan Temple As Example of Recount Text
On the last Sunday, my family spent a holiday at Prambanan Temple. The temple is only one-hour drive from my home so there is nothing special on the road.

When we arrived at the temple, we were so excited to see one of Jogja’s landmarks. The complex consists of several Hindu temples constructed by big volcanic rocks. We captivated by the amazing hundreds years old natural stone structures with beautiful sculptures and statues all around. We took a lot of photos near the temples and statues. Some of them were group photo and I took selfie as well.

After satisfied seeing the temples, we took rest at the park inside the complex. We opened the lunch boxes we brought from home. I didn’t know whether it was the food or the fact that we were so tired from walking around the complex or the happy atmosphere, but the food tasted so delicious. After finishing the lunch, we went home with a lot of happy memories.
