Exploring France

Best holiday ever

sunny 22 °C


Dear Diary,
Day six of my wombat plus one holiday. I woke up and got ready to go have breakfast at Porto-vecchio. We had croissants and baguettes ๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿฅ
After breaky we went to the Toutes and got some information on what to do and where to go. When we got our maps we drove to a beach which we didn't know the name of.

The beach was so beautiful as the water was as clear as crystal and it had beautiful rocks which you could climb on. Davo and I did a few jumps off a big,blue Patton and it was so funny. After the beach we came home and had a salami and ham salad sandwich and just chilled out for a bit while Livy had a sleep.

When Liv woke up we put our swimmers on and went to the pool for about an 1hr and had a fun,refreshing swim. We came home and Lozzy cooked gnocchi pasta with salad for dinner. I had never tried gnocchi before but it was very good.

After a nice fun day we were all very tired so we went to bed. It was an awesome day๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Settling in France

Having fun

sunny 28 °C


Dear Diary,
Day five of my wombat plus one holiday Davo and I went to a nearby cafe and bought croissants, chocolate and plain and we also bought coffee and hot chocolate. Yum!!!!!!
After we had our delicious breakfast we got in our swimmers and put sunscreen on and off to the beach we went. When we got there we found a cosy place to set up our towels and bags.

While we were having a relax Livy screamed and Davo said she just got stung by a bee. Lozzy ran over and grabbed Livy and went and asked for some cold water or ice but they didn't have any so a lovely lady came and gave us a green machine thing that sucks all the poison out of the sting.

It helped a bit but Livy was still in a lot of pain but then we went and got ice-creams and Livy said that her ice-cream made it feel better. She is so cuteโค๏ธAfter the bee catastrophe Davo,Lozzy,Livy and I drove home and while Livy had her sleep I just chilled out for a bit and had lunch.

When Liv woke up we went to the pool for a bit and had a nice swim and relax. The energy that Livy had was ridiculous because she wouldn't stop jumping into the water. Like seriously I think she jumped in about 50 times. Hahahahahahah

After a load of fun swimming we went home and got ready to get out for dinner to Bocca Del Ora a pizza place around the corner from our hotel. When we arrived we ordered some drinks and pizza. The pizza was absolutely amazing especially the bases.

After we had finished our pizza and payed the bill we went home and had a shower then went to bed. It was a big day that's for sure but a very fun one except for the bee bit!!!!!

Arrived in France

Time to relax

Dear Diary,
Day four of my wombat plus one holiday. Lozzy, Dave, Livy and I all got up at 4:00am to go to France. So we quickly boarded onto the plane and took off into the air. It was about a 7hr flight. When we got off the plane we had to wait in a long line to collect our bags. While that was happening Livy was to busy giving stickers to nearly every child that was there. So cute!!!

After we collected our bags we went and hired a car to drive in. When we got our car we drove around for a bit and because there was so many whindy roads my tummy started to feel sick, so we stopped at a pizza place to have a nice and yummy lunch. It was really good pizza!!!

After pizza we went to Santa Guilia beach for a swim. We came home to our hotel and unpacked as we were staying for 12 days. Lozzy made yummy Kiesh for dinner which was marvelous๐Ÿ˜‹After a long exciting and fun day we all had showers and went to bed very tired ๐Ÿ˜ด

Dear diary
Day three of my wombat plus one holiday. Lozzy, davo, Livy and I had a nice sleep in. We woke up and drove to the airport to go to London. When we got to the airport,we checked in and I got another stamp in my passport to get permission to leave the country. I was so excited to get another stamp!!!!โœก๏ธโœด๏ธโ‡๏ธ

Then we went and got all our bags checked through border security just to make sure that we weren't bringing anything naughty onto the plane.๐Ÿ˜Š
It wasn't a very long flight like Dubai I was only 7 and a half hours. So when we got off the plane we had to walk a little while to hop on a bus and go to another bus stop. When we got off the bus we had to wait a little bit longer for another bus to take us to our hotel. But 10 minutes later there was no buses in sight,so Lozzy figured that we should just walk because it was just around the corner from the bus stop.

We had a bit of trouble getting in at first but we found the entrance at last. The hotel was so close to the airport that we could just walk into the terminal. So we settled into our rooms, I was sharing a room with Livy. We just chilled out for a bit in our rooms before dinner time.

Livy and I had a bath. After that Lozzy lost Livy and I's room key so she had to call reception to see if they had another room key. So after she hung up on the phone she found the rom key!!!!!!! OMG I was laughing so hard I nearly wet my pants heheheheheh. Then Lozzy had to ring up again and tell them she found the key and doesn't need the other one anymore. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

After that big catastrophe, Lozzy ordered some dinner that was delivered to our room. We had pizza, chips, salad and garlic bread. It was so yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹
We went to bed straight after dinner because we had to get up and ready for France at 4:00am so we had to go to bed pretty early.

Dear Diary

Day 2 of my wombat plus one holiday. I had got up at 6:30am and Davo, Livy, Lozzy and I got into our exercise clothes and went for a lovely walk through the beautiful Dubai. And after a tiring walk we went to the hotel buffet breakfast and had a good feed. I had two pancakes with maple syrup, orange juice,a waffle with Nutella and bacon and eggs. I'm telling you right now it was a good delicious breaky!
After breaky we all got into our swimmers grabbed our towels and sunnies and went to he pool straight away.
After we had a swim at the pool we went back to our room and Livy had a sleep whilst lozzy davo and I chilled out for a bit.

When Livy woke up we went and got picked up by a desert safari people. We drove a whole and stopped at a little Dubai village and went to the toilet.

A man came over to us and out a big looking cloth on Davo's head, I was thinking"what is that" but when lozzy explained that people wear this instead of hats so they don't get burnt and to keep the sand away from your face I got one too.it was actually quite comfortable to be honest. Livy got a beautiful princess crown that she thought was like Elsa hahaha.

We hooped back into the car and drove to the desert safari activities.

First we did4 wheel driving and !OMG! It was so fun. The car was bouncing up and down every single hill and and turn. It was so much fun ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

After the 4-wheel driving had finished we arrived at a beautiful, cosy little camp with lots of little huts, tables and chairs๐Ÿ˜The first thing we did was get some drinks because it was so hot. Then we went and I got a Henna Tattoo. The lady was so talented, that she just free-handed all of the drawings without even thinking about it for a second. It was amazing and I absolutely loved it.๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

When the lady had finished my Henna Tattoo and went and rode a camel. I was so fun, but it was a bit sad for the camels as they aren't designed to carry people.๐Ÿ˜ขThe camels have webbed feet so they can grip to the sand. They have two layers of eye lids so that they don't get sand in their eyes and their double jointed!!!!!!

I was a it nervous a first because I had to be at the front of he camel. So I got upon the camel and OMG how high it was from the ground. We started walking around in a circle, it was AWESOME ๐Ÿ‘

After the camel rides we went and sat down at a table and just chilled for a bit. It became dark and it was announced that there would be some special dancers coming to perform. A man came onto the stage wearing a pretty cool looking dress with lights and sparkles. He was doing a traditional Russian Dance and it was so cool. The man had these circular shaped hats(+5) that he was spinning in his hands while dancing. He was very talented.๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ž๐Ÿ‘ž๐ŸŽฉ

After the man had finished the dance we all went and had dinner. There was lots of different types of foods including pasta, salad, fruit, chicken, lamb, baked veggies and lots more other things. I had a variety of things. It was so good

When everyone had completed dinner a beautiful lady walked onto the stage wearing a sparkling white costume. She was doing belly dancing. That is where you can roll you belly muscles up and down and move your hips but it is actually all through your knees... isn't that bizarre!!!

Anyways, after all the b auroral dancing we got picked up by the desert safari people and drove home. It was a very big day but was amazing and I had lots of fun.
Fun fact # 2
The kings in Dubai are called sheikh

Fun fact # 3
It is a 14 hour plane flight from Sydney to Dubai & it is very tiring I can tell you that!

Fun fact # 4
The third tallest building in the world is called the burj kalifa

Fun fact # 5
The currency in Dubai is Durham - 1 Australian dollar is about 2 and a half Durham

After a long 14 hour flight we got off the plane and oh my goodness it was hot in Dubai - it was 45 degrees. We got a cab to the hotel. It was called the Sheraton hotel.

When we got settled into our rooms we went to the pool sunbaked and had lots of fun swimming in the refreshing water.

After the swim we went back to our room and had a shower then got into some comfy clothes and went and got dinner. I had a Philly steak roll and it was amazing!!!

After dinner we watched the fountains at the burge kalifa. It was beautiful as the water sprayed up into the air like a million feathers had been coming up from the water. It was so much fun.

After the fountains had finished we all went home and had a shower and went to bed. It was such a fun day ๐Ÿ˜Š
