My Holiday

On holiday my Mum Dad and I went to Queenstown and Lake Tekapo. In Queenstown we went Luging and drove up to the Remarkables Ski field but didnt go skiing. We went up on the chair lift though to check out the view. We were going to walk up through the snow to the viewing area but barely out of the gate my Mums leg fell into the ice. Then we had another attempt and after going a couple of metres up my Mum fell flat on her face. We decided we would not carry on even though I wanted to. We were wearing the wrong sort of shoes! 

The next day we packed up and went to Tekapo. It didnt take as long as I thought it would. I liked the place we stayed in because it was near the hot pools. 
The first day at Tekapo we went to the hot pools and we liked it so much we went back the next day too! We went snow tubing which was great fun and my favourite part of the holiday.
We also gave ice skating a go but that was not my favourite part. On the way back we stopped at a lookout and got great views of Mt Cook. (Below is a photo that I took).
Maggie (my cat) was very pleased to have us home and the first thing she said to us was FEED ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Dear Room 6

    We think your holiday sounded amazing and fun! About three quarters of our class have been to the snow but only half of our class have been either skiing or snowboarding so we think this holiday would have been a great experience. We hope you managed to get your Mum's leg out of the ice and safely home! We are interested to know what kind of shoes you were wearing? Last year, Miss McLeod walked the Tongariro Crossing and she saw a lady wearing flip flops!

    The hot pools at Tekapo sound refreshing, relaxing and hot! We agree that staying close to hot pools is a good idea when you're on holiday. Some of us in Room 24 have been ice skating before. We recommend you persist as it's loads of fun when you get the hang of it.
