Today I am writing about the holidays.
I went to Wellington, it was so exciting. I went on the cable car and on the east west ferry. The cable car is a train that you go up and at the top is a museum. I didn't see much. The east west ferry is a little ferry that goes to lots of places. I forgot the places name. I went to Te Papa. Te Papa is a place that has lots of stuff
and you can look at lots of stuff.
I was so excited because …. I am going to Marlborough. I went with my friends in Wellington. We went on a bike ride because we forgot to bring the keys but we found the spare keys. We chilled that day. The next day we went to the park and I liked the flying fox. We went to the movies we saw How To Train A Dragon 2.
“ Yay “ I am going to Inflatable World today with Taylor. I walked in to Inflatable World. I looked around and raced to the cling wall. You had to run over a big lump and climb up on the cling wall.
I enjoyed all the stuff I did in the Holidays. Seriously - I loved this holiday !!
