    I guess some help with it,i'm way out of my depth and can barely write a few sentences that includes any of that stuff,i would be grateful if anyone would help by just saying something like 'oh,here's a sentence that you could write including a past tense and opinions etc.'

    Have your teachers not provided you with some basic sentences you can copy the structure of? Or any vocab sheets?

    And you must have already done quite a bit of work on talking about holidays in class?

    If you think you are out of your depth, just keep it simple. Write some short sentences out in English first and think about the vocabulary and grammar you will need to put them into French.

    Well,not really,the teacher said it was a 'surprise' writing and we'd have to use our basic knowledge and research for this. It's a shame really and that's why I've come here for help and assistance with it

    Is this for GCSE? Si j'étais riche, j'irais... is a good starting point for a sentence. It means if I was rich (imperfect), I would go to (conditional), so it includes two tenses. After that you would say where you want to go and you could talk about why you want to go there.
