Hello

Hello everyone,
I know you are on school holidays now but some of you might visit the blog over the holidays. I am sorry I have been out of cyber space lately but the internet has been limited in some places and kept dropping out.
We have been to Yosemite National park on the look out for Yogi Bear! We didnt find him but there were a lot of warnings not to feed his friends or leave food around. Yosemite was beautiful and so peaceful. We went bike riding, small bush walks and best of all, we went rafting down the Mercad river. There were shallow and deep parts of the river making it difficult to raft down. There were little rapids to go throu too and sometimes we ended up spinning through them. When we were crossing the last rapid, we got stuck on a rock and we had to be nudged throuh by another raft, it was very funny. Our rafting adventures lasted about two hours. After that we had had to walk the raft up the river bank to the truck. We were exhausted but it was a lot of fun.
We packed up after two days and drove to San Francisco. I drove for a few hours which was scary because in America they drive on the opposite side of the road and the driver’s side of the car is also on the opposite side. I did very well though! It was a four hour drive to San Fran.
When we arrived, it was very cold and foggy. We drove to a look out to see the famous Golden Gate bridge but it was fogged in. We checked into our hotel and then walked down to ride the cable car. There was a big long line for the cable car but it moved very quickly. Once we got on, we settled in for a ride down to Fishermans Wharf riding the hilly streets of San Fran. We walked around and had dinner then caught a bus back to the hotel. We settled in for the night ready for our flight to Hawaii.
It was a four hour flight to Hawaii. I had a sleep while Mia and Cam wrote in their travel books and did some homework. When we arrived in Hawaii, we made our way to baggage collection, collected our bags and then caught a taxi to our hotel. The weather is beautiful and warm here and we are enjoying swimming.
Today we are going paddleboarding at the beach. It is nice and calm on the beach so it should be good conditions. We are going to also hire a car on Sunday and drive around the island and snorkel in different spots.
Thank you to everyone who has posted and written comments to me. I have missed you all and look forward to seeing you next term. I loved watching the Around the World video you made, it was wonderful.

London part 2

The next day we went to STONE HENGE. We went to a diffrrent hotel to get a bus to STONE HENGE. It took us 2 hours and 30 minutes. When we got there we got a audio that told us about the secrets and historical items in the circle of STONE HENGE. WE went on another mini bus to see the actual STONE HENGE. I saw some Poppys and the STONE HENGE! The audio told us to press some numbers for more historical information, like 100,2,3,31,32,33,4,41,42,43 and 5. We climbed on the bus to get fish and chips for a late lunch and a early dinner .

In the morning we had a wonderful breakfast at the hotel. Then we got a taxi to the airport called the BRITISH AIRWAYS. When we went into security. My brother ,Kyle had to take his shoes off. When we boarded the plane we looked at the rows carefully to see which row we were sitting at. I ate a ham and turkey wrap on the plane and I drank some apple juice too! It was a 2 hour flight to MUNICH. We are then going to DOHA then  SYDNEY then back to MELBOURNE ! I MISS YOU GUYS ! Please let me know what you are doing! From your buddy Kyra!

Paris part 2

The next day I went with my family so we could get breakfast . I ate muffins and a piece of bread . We went shopping for groceries and food suplies like water. As usual we got cup noodles for my mother . I ate lunch at Macdonalds. I ate ‘Fillet O Fish’. Then we walked back to the apartment to sleep so we could wake up at night time to see Paris at night. Zz Zz. We  went to the Ilfle tower. It was beautiful! We went to see  other statues and fountains . This is how it  looked like …….

The next day we went to DISNEY LAND! We started to walk to the bus station . We were very puzzled that there was no bus sign but we still stayed there. We were very lucky that we were at the bus stop. We climbed up the bus and sat on a seat . I then slept for a few minutes. Zz Zz. I suddenly woke up and realized we reached DISNEYLAND! We went on the DISNEY RAILROAD to USA!(not really!) Then we waited at the entrance to see MISS RAP ! Then we headed to the scary rollercoaster in the HAUNTED HOUSE! There was a green face in a upside down jar. It could talk! In a strange, creepy voice. There was a robotic wolf jumping out at us. I saw four more people’s heads in glasses. It was very dark and scary.

We went to meet Mickey Mouse before lunch. We watched mickey mouse cartoon while we waited in line. When it was our turn, we hugged him and took a photo. He was very nice and cuddly. wr had fish and chips for lunch. After that we went for Mr. Mad Hatter’s tea cup ride. It was fun!

After that we went to Discovery land. we went on the Star Tour. It was a Star Wars ride. We went off to space! It was very cool!

The best part at Disneyland was the star tour and the roller coaster rides. I was very lucky to get a present from Miss Rap. It was a Frozen toy – Elsa! I love it! Thank you Miss Rap!

Paris part 1

zZ zZ YAWN! YAWN!I woke up and found myself sleeping on the bus. I watched THE CROODS and RISE OF THE GUARDIANS! Then I had breakfast at a restaurant called PAUL. I ate a chocolate muffin it was delicious ! We went on the bus again and continued the journey to Paris.

When we reached Paris we caught a taxi to our apartment at the bus station. We reached the apartment and had a big rest . I wasn’t tired so I did some blogging yesterday . The next day we went to the shops . It was huge but the toilets are tiny! My family went to a bus called the Big Bus. It had some earphones connected to a sound system in every row. You listen to a man recording and the man talks about the history of Paris . I liked it ! Then we went to have lunch at Asian food. I haven’t had Asian food in a week! Seriously a Singaporean eating Paris food? Then we finally went back to the apartment. We are eating  ice cream now and watching TRON because TRON is the only English movie. I ‘ll see you in a few weeks! I hope you are having lots of fun ! Ms Smethurst can the class comment on my posts? I haven’t heard from them! I miss you guys!

Competition Spain part 2

On Friday we started the competition our team,CTRLL+ALT+DEL went to the gaming boards. We scored over 300 points but MECHANIC ANTS scored 600 points. We then had another practice on the practice board. I saw Josh and Chloe there too. I also saw the friendship ceremony . I danced the Macarina with Chloe. On Saturday at the competition CTRL+ALT+DEL  went to the gaming boards. They were 38th position out of 92. They scored more than before and had a rest after the last game against Greece, THE ROBOT MASTERS ! I played with Chloe before we went for lunch . Me and Chloe collected balloons from other teams and formed a balloon barrier! We used our bags as cushions and our jackets for a blanket . Me and Chloe played the Ipad, we played Temple run. The scores were very close but we lost. We were very close to winning just 1 point  more to win. It was a great game , although we lost we didn’t come here for nothing. We came here for fun and experience . That night we set off on a bus at 11 at midnight when it was quiet and dark. We went with David a big boy in the team taller than an 11 year old boy. We also went with is mum , my prep Chinese teacher and her husband . We also went with David’s little brother , he is a friend of mine but very big still. The bus arrived as I went to sleep….zZ zZ.
