We have had a great start to the year – I am super excited about Room 5 this year. We have been getting to know each other over this first week. Now I would like you to share how you spent your holidays.
On your blog, you need to create a new post entitled “Summer Holiday”. You can add pictures to make it more interesting. Below is my example about my holiday.
In January I was lucky enough to travel to two amazing countries – Vietnam and Cambodia. Both are in South East Asia and are so different from New Zealand. I rode a motorbike around Ho Chi Minh city (the capital of Vietnam), went cruising up the Mekong River, visited local schools, saw incredible food markets and visited temples that are 1000 years old.
It was very hot the entire time we were there as both countries are close to the equator. Each day it was around 33 degrees Celsius, and I loved it. I would much rather be hot than cold. We were very lucky to have a pool on the boat we travelled on, so if it got too hot we just took a dip.
It was only my husband and I who went on the trip. Our three children went to stay with their grandparents up north and we did miss them a lot. However they had a great time going to beaches, swimming and fishing with their cousins.
The thing that will stand out in my memory about my trip was the food I saw in the markets. It was amazing what the Vietnamese and Khmer people eat. There was lots of interesting fruit and vegetables but also things like deep fried tarantulas, skinned toads, skinned rats and fried scorpions. As much as I loved the food I ate over there, I was not brave enough to try these things.
I would love to go back at some stage and explore more of the north of both countries – 2 weeks was just not enough.
