It was my birthday morning… the day started as usual. It was Sunday and honestly I didn’t expect anything. I went to the shower and when I came out my family started singing “Happy Birthday”. A cake, candles, flowers, big smiles and much attention – I was very happy.
Later somebody rang the doorbell. When I answered the door, I saw an envelope on the floor. I opened it and found a letter with a request: in two hours I was to go outside and take some warm clothes. When I left home three of my friends had been waiting for a short time. They blindfolded me and drove me somewhere. When we arrived at some place I saw other friends of mine and……. karts. Kart racing had been my dream since childhood. We raced and after that they blindfolded me again and drove to a grange. What I found there was a special cake, flowers, candles, presents. Finally, we went to Trakai, one of the most beautiful towns in Lithuania. We sailed a pedalo and had a great time together. It was the greatest day of my life.
