Where I would like to live

By Junior Journalists · April 2nd, 2014
I would like to make my own island. There would be no payments. You could live free. There would be lots of people. The only way you could get across would be a sky walk. There would be a under water hotel for visitors. I would have my best friend next door in another island. It will be in the middle Gulf of Mexico.
