Back to Australia again!

Heading off again as usual. I fly over to Australia every year maybe twice, in the holidays to see my dad and my siblings. Have you ever flown by yourself? If you're my age it does feel a little bit scary but this was my second time flying unaccompanied so I wasn’t as anxious. When you fly by yourself you have would normally have a flight attendant watching you. Two of my favourite things to do on the plane is to watch movies and listen to music. Landing of the plane is not my favourite part most of the times the plane screech’s but fortunately the plane wasn’t that bad it was smooth landing. As soon as I hoped off the plane I was happy to see my dad. As soon as I got to my dads house I put bags into my baby brothers room and watched some movies then crashed.

One of the things that I did while there was go to was heading to Wet and Wild. The weather was scorching as soon as I headed outside it just overwhelmed me. Swimming was fantastic just hanging out with my dad his wife and my siblings. “Splash! Get over here” I said to my two younger siblings we were have a little fight in the pool. My little brother who was five and my sister who was three years old, were trying to punch and drown me ( I sort of taught them to be rough ). I didn’t go on any rides because I would have gone by myself and so I was looking after my younger brothers and sisters instead. It was packed to capacity with people.

Another thing that I did there was a lot of shopping (which I usually hate doing). My uncle Ailuai took me to a house near his place where they sold basketball singlets for $15 and caps for $10, he had the sale in his garage. They are all imported from U.S.A or thats what I overheard the seller say. When we got there there was a wall filled with snap back hats. They were all different colors and brands. My uncle said I could pick three hats. After a lot of thought I chose  three hats: Neff, Sorry I’m Fresh and Street Swag.

I always love coming to see my dad and my little siblings especially to come see my new baby brother Deandre. Can’t wait to go back again had a lot of fun. Most of the time I was there I was watched movies which was awesome. My favorite right now has got to be Pitch Perfect. Have you seen it yet? You should watch it!


  1. Oh your baby brother is so cute Darius.
    What a great run down of your holiday in Australia. A very interesting read.
    See you on Monday.

  2. Hello Darius,

    Your holiday sounds so interesting. I am going to Australia in June for a holiday. It'll be winter over there but I asked my cousin if it's still hot and he said "heck yes". But the Australians don't go out because they think it's hot. Keep up the great work.

    Thank you very much for the comment that you left Elizabeth on our class page from Hamilton - I was impressed by how professional and interesting that it was. That allowed me to follow your comment back to your page and I have to say I am extremely impressed. I don't live in Auckland anymore although I used to and I used to teach at a school down the road from you (which is now closed) but I have kept watching what your school has been up to and have seen your Ambassador presentation (was it really 2011? id dosent seem like it was that long ago!)

    I really enjoyed reading your recount about Australia, I liked the humour that was present through out your recount but also the fact that you included facts and information about it, it made it an easy read. Im always hugely impressed by students or classes who publish images with recounts as I think it really helps with the finished product.

    I'll be back on Monday with my class to have a look at your page and show them it, and talk about your work, and I will get Elizabeth to comment back so thank you once again for the comment, have a great weekend and I will start following your page this year, along with my class.

    Its Elizabeth here, the one that wrote the recount about Rise of the Guardians. Thats so amazing that you go to Australia every year to see your family. I havent even left the North Island before! Anyway, to answer your question my favourite Character is Baby Tooth cause shes so cute! But I also love the character Easter Bunny how he Turns into a baby bunny with Big eyes near the end of the movie.
