IELTS Speaking topic: A souvenir

Describe something special you brought home from a holiday.
You should say:
what it was
when and where you went on this holiday
what you did with it after you brought it home
and explain whey you thought it was special.

Let me tell you about the oil painting I bought in the famous Beachfront Markets Festival during my last Australian trip in December, 2012. That was a memorable place where I strolled along the beach, stopped at every stall selling a variety of premium products, including fashion, jewellery, accessories, artworks, photographs, and home wares, along with other treasure hunters, bargain spotters and after-dinner walkers all around me in Surfers Paradise, Golden Coast.

I bought the oil painting from a beautiful lady, it was gorgeous and about the peaceful lake with trees and rocks. It was painted by her mother actually, and it wasn’t expensive, but I had to admit that both of the two ladies looked so stunning that I made my mind to buy the works.

Now the oil painting is hanging on the wall of my dinning room. It looks great, every guest to my home will appreciate it a lot. And I’m really into it because I took it from such a remote country that has a different cultural background, and partly because it was a really exciting trip during the Beachfront Markets Festival where I met two beautiful women.
