    My trip impression

    September 12, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    I really liked that trip it was worth the time and worth the travel. Although dad was barking at us about our blogs I still had an amazing trip especially with 2 amusement parks. I totally recommend doing this wether it's the same place or not. The things that stood out the most were the two amusement parks and the dinosaurs alive, although half the dinosaurs were broken.Read more

    New orleans

    September 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Hi, today we took a bus and a train down town and walked along the Mississippi River. We stopped so we could take a paddle boat tour. On the boat tour we saw some special ships that Jared thought were army ships but were actually roll on, roll off cargo ships. We went to the frount of the cathedral but sadly it was closed. We went down bourbon, it was crazy... I loved it. In bourbon street there was a lot of shops and poor people and some buskers.The next day we went back to the cathedral and it was open, yay. In the cathedral it was very cold and quiet we were able to buy and light a candle for somebody or something. We hade a look around and on the roof there were beautiful markings about some story's of Jesus. Next we had Popeyes, personally we didn't like it, we all thought KFC was better... #loveKFC. After Popeyes we tried to go back bet ended up taking a tram that went round the garden district, apparently it is the oldest running tram. That after noon we went to the pool and had a massive swim while mum and dad where packing. On the third and final day we woke up early so we could go on a alligator swamp tour. My first impression was 'this is cool' because we saw a baby alligator at the boat ramp just swimming and chilling. On the tour we saw the guy feed the alligators marshmallows because they will eat anything small and white thing that's floating on the water so... marshmallows. On the tour we went down three different rivers and a small little one. In the little river we saw some raccoons and the guy called for the pigs. After the swamp tour we drove back up to Texas and then to Houston. That's all bye.Read more

    Back at home!!!

    September 9, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    A little while ago we stayed at an Rv park and met a new friend, we watched tv with our friend, he was fun. On the way to Houston we saw a lot of left over flooding when going to catch our flight. And today we just got home from 2 different flights 1 14 hour flight and a 20 minute flight. On the first flight from Houston to Auckland we flew with the night. It was 7 am when we got to nz but it was worth it. The second flight was a bit boring but I slept through. On our second flight there was a sports team onboard. That's about all we did in the last day bye.Read more

    An out door mall?

    August 30, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    This morning we went shopping and got a lot of new clothes mostly Nike (for me) and Levi's (for mum and dad). The three things I liked the most are my Nike clothes, Auntie Anne's and Lindt chocolate. At Auntie Anne's we got a combo with a free pretzel, at Nike I got 2 new shirts and shorts, and at Lindt we got 150 chocolates for $36 and a free 12 chocolates witch.. of course... mum and dad got. We didn't do much but we also did a lot if that makes sense... all we did was shop this morning... and have Starbucks for breakfast. For breakfast we had a hot chocolate each for Jared and I, a latte and flat white for mum and dad, a bacon and egg bagel and 2 cressonts. Now that's all we did at the mall... I'll just tell you what it looked like. It was an out door mall (you can tell by the tittle) all the shops were buildings but the main zone where you would walk around in is all out doors and all the buildings were brick, that sums it up well. 3:10 pm we got on the road and skipped right over Cincinnati into Louisville Kentucky, sounds simple right.Read more

    Another one?

    August 29, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Yesterday and today we had a surprise, a big one so I'll tell you about it. The day before yesterday I passed the 'fun test' for my surprise an amusement park Derain lake. It was awesome the rides we went on was the blast off, chair-o-plane, scrambler, bumper buggies, pirate ship, predator and viper, just note that was all the rides we did in two days not including the water activities we did. The water rides we went on are the tornado, mister twister, some boat log flume, grizzly run and the lazy river not a lot of things but a lot of time spent. Last night we watched an ignite the night laser light show and it was the best. Using computer engineering, fire and water physics, lasers and pure awesomeness( I said that cause they said that.) They played music in the back ground and lasers playing to the beat with a laser show on a big screen, there was a Pokemon one and a shake it off one that had a laser hologram against water that was actually dancing smoothly, I know it was insane hard to imagine that in New Zealand. That's just about all that happened in the last two days except for travel and dad getting grumpy that's all that happened bye. (Be shore to check out my brothers blogs :-P)Read more

    Family to Niagara Falls

    August 27, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    The last three days were cool playing in the sand and swimming in the lake, swinging on the rope swing and fishing out to lake. In the sand we made a big city and I was the richest. In the pond there was 2 inflatables and I went on one, there where also some fish and four different was in the rope swing, diving board, zip line and walking in, they also had a cool camper and a room just for cooking. They had a big dinner party just for us and everyone was singing around the campfire. We were there for three days and I can say best cousins ever. Leaving and saying good bye was the hardest but we went on a 2 hour drive to see Niagara Falls. At the falls we went on the maid of the mist and went down at the bottom of the falls. We got super wet and I wanted to go but at least we got a free ride into the USA. There are two falls the left one is the American falls and to the right is the horse shoe falls due to the shape of it. There was a huge amount of people at the falls and it was annoying. We left the falls and parked at Walmart to grab dinner and went to a campground and slept for the night. That's all we did bye. P.S I'm ok guys don't worryRead more

    On to new family?

    Today we went into Canada and meet new family members in fact my third cousins kyler and Tristan but on the way there we stopped at the Henry ford museum the guy who made the production line to help make cars and the owner of ford. The place was huge and it had full size planes, farm vehicles, trains and cars it was awesome after the museum the border it was crowded and we got lucky we got through.

    In a car park???

    August 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Today we went to a mall and it had an aquarium, a lego land with a full lego play zone and the rain forest cafe, it was huge. we didn't go to lego land or the aquarium but we did go to the cafe. At the cafe we had dinner and it was amazing I had python pasta and Jared had cast away pizza and we both had fruit with it. Every 10 minutes an animated animal would go off and every 30 minutes a thunderstorm would go of. In the thunderstorm all animals would go of and it starts flashing and makes lightning noises. The roof has leafs on it and looks like it's the top of a tree. After dinner we went back to the camper and we slept in a car park for the night. Bye.Read more

    August 21, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 25 °C

    Today was cool all day we were out but 1 thing I was disappointed but never mind. We went down to the very end and went on a coaster called the cedar point mine ride witch we got to by a train witch went around the whole park. We also did the vintage cars and I drove Aaron and dad, we also did a lot of fun walking around and exploring. The water park was empty and the fact that there were still cues on a school day was insane. In the water park we went in the splash zone, on the race, on a tube slide I forgot the name of, in breakwater bay and on the port side plunge, not a lot of things but still in for about 2 - 3 hours. 100% recommended that's it for today byeRead more

    Its a good day

    August 20, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 26 °C

    Tractor pull was cool but we have to go leaving asap to cedar point but let's remember the tractors first. The Classes are super stock, mini, 2 wheel drive ute and more but the tractor I really liked was the alcoholic harvester. The tractors were super loud and people outside yahooing around Jared had to sleep with his ear muffs on and that was adorable. Waking up was amazing but after noon was horrible with clouds all over the sky's from the smoke of the tractors and the guys were nice but drinking way to much it's honestly concerning. That was cool memories flying over my head but time for more memories for the travel was long with 2 toll booths and Aaron hurting Jared's ears, I've had a long day already but shortly it will al turn around hopefully. Cedar point is the best amusement park because it's got lots of roller coasters and a water park right next to. This is really exiting for us and my favourite thing about this trip is this I'm just so excited. Barely containing myself wanting to go I have to wait for stupid traffic,screaming to myself on why I am not sticking my head out the window and yelling hurry up is what I feel like right now. With light house point in sight (our parking spot) bursting my bubble I WANT TO GO!!! 'Groan', see you after cedar point. We are back from point. Running out from the thunderstorm knowing the bolts in this place I'm running. But other than the storm it was a good night stay up till 10:30pm and go on 4 different rides the tiki twirl, chair'o'plane, matter horn and the sky ride. It's #fun:-P Well that's tonight good day... I mean night.Read more
