The Carnival

sunny 30 °C

For my sisters' birthday we went to the carnival. There were rides of all kinds there were go carts, spiners and there was even one of those things that you sit down in the seat and then it sarts and you spin round and round. My favorite ride was the go carts because you could bash and bang as much as you like and go on so many times the one thimg that stoped me was a soar back. After that the next day we had a bit of trouble because Neve was refusing to do her shcool work so me and mommy went to the beach alone so we spent the the next 3 hours playing in the water and catching crabs.

Mommy's note: We get asked all the time why we chose to spend most of our time in Australia in Jervis Bay. Understand that this is where Australians come on holiday because of the beautiful, safe and abundant beaches, great weather, and lots of things for tourists to do like a permanent carnival set up in the school field all summer! There are three National Parks in the area to explore and daily cruises of the bay to watch the dolphins. We've caught up on some school work (Neve eventually did her work) and have enjoyed watching kangaroos and all the parrots. Soon we are off to the Blue Mountains and then to Kuala Lampur where I'm sure travelling won't be this easy!

Sydney and Shoalhaven

sunny 30 °C

We arived in Australia 2 days from new years eve we were staying in the Sydney YHA. It was a preety place and was also brand new our room was quite small but it had a a bunk bed a queen size bed and a TV. The hostel was built on top of an archeological dig and was full of old broken pipes, dishes and toys. We had a new years party on the roof and we had the best veiw in all the city the fireworks were magnificent. We also went to the maratime history museam we got to go on an exakt replika of capitan cooks ship. Capitan cook was a famus explorer and we are folowing his path around the world.

Then in two days we left and came here to our house in Shoalhaven. It is great and we are here for 3 weeks we have a nice little house a block from the beach. Neves birth day is in 3 days. We are very exited because we get to go to the carnival. Australia is great it also has parrots everywhere most of them are rainbow lorakeets, the kookaburas wake me up at 5 in the morning. There are also lots of kangaroos they are just hanging around in the feilds by the duzens.
