Dear prof,

Are these good sentences :

- When I was 18 years old, I went on a camping trip with my boyfriend.
- Because we were young we find it a nice type of holiday, now I want do that anymore.



Re: travel

The second sentence is ungrammatical for two reasons.

If you use a past tense ('we were young') you need the dependent clause to have the same tense ('we found it'). Also 'anymore' goes with a negative. So you want to do more of something, or you do not want to do it anymore.

The first sentence is fine.
