Skiing on the Mountainside.

Two days ago we went cross country skiing and had a go at going down, up and flat with skis. First of all we had a lesson so we could learn exactly how to cope and use the sticks and other equipment. First of all we tried going flat (which lead to falling over ALOT!) Next we tried a slope which was defnately the hardest bit. After our full length lesson we were aloud to go freestyle. Next we tried out the Mary’s Trail for Begginners. It involved some hard work and a pit stop for a picnic in the snow. I was eager to carry on unlike Anna so i repeated the trail with dad, while Anna and Mum made a snow man!!! Just a quick note: Following on from Dad’s Post below or on the homepage, another way to keep children happy whilst travelling around the world is to give them an ice-cream every day!!!! 🙂

  1. Hi Louisa
    at last we are on holiday too!!! I bet you mastered skiing on the mountainside!!
    I have just come back from a long weekend holiday trip from Yorkshire.It was the second time I’ve gone to a caravan park ,it was cool , but not as cool as going around the world! When are you coming back?

    I miss you loads and loads love from Ece!!

    • Hi Ece,
      I hope U had a fab time in Yorkshire. Sounds like U are experiencing an adventure twice!!!! I am going up to Rotorua tommorrow and that will be sooooooooo cool. There is bubbling mud which is at Jacuzzi heat. And also Mum said there was a beach where you can dig a small a hole and get a mini pool to warm up in!!! At the mo I am in Dunedin and i am just about to visit the World’s Steepest Street. Today i went to Cadbury’s world like you did in Birmingham. Despite this i think we had slightly different time. I went on a tour of the factory and tried some liquid chocolate. Also they gave us bars of Choc on the way. We also saw some choco buttons being made and easter eggs being wrapped. It was cool and now i am stuffed. I have got 5 days left in New Zealand then 5 days in Chile and then finally 3 weeks and 1 day in brasil. But also there are a few days after i arrive it is school not straight away. I am hoping to pop round to yours to say hi beforehand though. (Just a knock on the door!) Loads of hugs from Lulu xxxxxxxxx P.s Anna says she misses the hug you give her at lunch break!!!!!!!!!!!! :-p

  2. Hi Louisa,
    I LOVE Cadbury’s World!I never knew there was Cadbury’s World in Newzealand!!! I did the same thing in Birmingham, after the tour was finished a I didn’t want to see chocolate ever again!!! (but my view of chocolate has changed now!) I have seen your recent pictures, they are fandabbidosi!!!Your dad’s artistic pictures are wonderful too!

    Forget the World’s Steepest Street I’m going to give you and Anna the Worlds Biggest hug when you come back!!! I miss you soooo much!!!!
    Lots of love your BFF Ece (Selina)xxxxxxx

    • Hi Ece,
      Is it me or have U changed your nickname again??? It is cool! Today i went to a mountain and did a sky Luge. It is when U sit on this mini cart and g zooooooooooooming down a hill and follow all of these different tracks. To get up first you use a cable car and then to have another go you use a chair lift. (Which is basicly a bench with a bar at the front to protect U on a cable. U have to stand backwards to get on while it comes underneath U!!!! I just have enough time to right this before we get redy togo to a moari (NZ’s historic people’s) night tour. It starts t 6:00 pm and ends around 11:00 pm. Mum and Dad did not realise how late it was when they booked it! We are going to look for wild kiwi’s, see ther dance, try their food and watch them boating down the river!!! I am totally missing U right now. Wish U were here from Lulu xxxxxxxxxxxx
      P.S- AS MANY HUGS YOU LIKE FREE FROM THE 31ST OF AUGUST ONWARDS TO THE INFINITE OF JULY!!!!! P.P.S- I am half way through my hols!

  3. Louisa,

    Sounds like you had a good time skiing then! I hope you have not hurt yourself while you were doing it. I have never done skiing before and when you get back i want to here all about it. Next year i am in your class so i really can spend some good time hearing about your whole trip not just the skiing. I can tell you all about my holiday in Norway and i hope to see you very soon. When you come back you do know everyone is going to be crowding you but me and you can make a rota saying who will see you and when. I am only joking! I hope you had a great time round the world in just over 80 days and i will see you soon.
