We are going away on 28th of March 2013.
Some of our feelings are sad, nervous & excited. Sad because missing our friends. Nervous because going to new places. Excited because going on adventures.
We are getting prepared –example -100% water proof jackets, a towel with a small case, a back pack that has lot’s of pockets, a underwater camera, water proof binoculars. Santa got three kindles touches for the kids and a globe of the world. We are getting more prepared.
What I know so far is that we are going on a VERY VERY long drive, from were we are in Whitfield. So we are going from our house ALL the way to Adelaide. When we get to Adelaide we are going straight to the zoo for FREE, because all us 5 kids and our mum and dad are zoo members. We are going to stay at Adelaide for 12 hrs, then finally off to Perth. We are staying at Perth at my mum and dad’s friends for a week or two. On the way from Perth to Darwin we will have Kalika`s 7th Birthday. In Darwin we are going to try to sell our Toyota Tarago, we will then have to take a maxi taxi. We are going to the Darwin airport and … catch a plane to Cairns to go to palm cove to meet our First cousins and our grandma and pa. The day before we catch the plane to Cairns it is Yasi and my Birthday – we are turning 10, we are probably going to have a Birthday Cake with our cousins. We will stay in palm cove for six days. (This is when the fun begins)
So from Darwin airport we are going to say in the building but we are catching a plane to Singapore. We are going to stay in Singapore for 40 hrs. My dad says “we are going to see the orang-utans at the Singapore zoo” because Singapore is famous for orang-utan’s. So from Singapore to Kunming. In Kunming we will be sleeping at people’s houses, sleeping in guesthouses, staying in our tent, carrying our back packs down hill and going on horseback up a hill. Then a plane from Shangrila airport to Xian.
At Xian we will catch a train to Beijing. In Beijing we hope to see the amazing Great Wall of China.
In Beijing we will catch the train Siberian all the way to Moscow, we will stop in Mongolia and stop in Russia two or three times from Moscow to Greece… well we will catch a train. We are staying in Greece for six or nine months, Mum and dad are trying to keep up the Greek language.
Next spot Spain or Morocco… we will fly by plane from Greece to Spain or Morocco. In Morocco or Spain we will have Christmas with aunty Jenny, aunty Sally and Uncle George – also if we go to Spain Dad promised that we would go to a Barcelona match. Now off to South America… Peru, we might go to school in Peru.
I look forward to writing more again soon.
