Niuean Athletics

Every year an event will be held which is called Niuean Athletics.Its a really fun thing to do with the family, I participated in the niuean athletics it was usually me and my brother but this year it was me by myself. I ran for the 100m and 200m, I came second in both heat. It was really hard but I had a lot of fun running.Watching other people run was really exciting because seeing someone coming from behind and beating people that tried hard to come 1st. But I didn't do the finals I left and went to have lunch at Burger King, then went home.

Day two in Australia

On the second morning we had to wake up around some point  six in the morning.To get ready for a morning session.Then leave at 8:30, we would always be the first church inside the hall.There were fans inside the hall because it will start to get a bit hot.After a lot of preaching about the bible. We would have breakfasts outside.The funny thing is that the food looks really nice, but you eat it and some taste DISGUSTING!!! no offence.

When breakfast finished we had to walk back to the hall. Then listen to more talking for about ten minutes and the morning session will be over.But we had to go back at 6:30 pm for a youth rally.There was always different kind of cultures hosting the youth rally.Its a great thing for making new friends and learning about there culture. 

 We got back to the resort and it would be around 1 or 2 in the afternoon.Some people went straight to the swimming pool , instead of having some rest. Time moves slow which gives them more time to swim.But when it was time to go the people that were swimming were tired.Also during the youth rally they fell asleep.Every time someone goes up.Starts talking and takes for long I always get angry.When the rally finish's we have diner.

The food at diner time is much better than breakfast.There was butter chicken and other nice stuff.We got back to the resort at 11 'o' clock because after when everybody finish eating. There was talking again which was boring.The experience I get from this is that learning new ideas from different nationality and also seeing the respect of other cultures.

Going To Australia With The Youth Group/ Day One

The plane zoomed down the runway. As my mum gripped my hand tightly as the plane lifted into the air. It was my first time on a plane, but I wasn't scared  instead I was really excited. After a few hours it all changed I started getting a headache and was hungry.Then I realized that this trip was going to take 3 hours to get to our destination.(Brisbane Australia)

A few minutes pass and two laddies Came down the ails pushing a trolley selling snack. Boy I was so excited when my mum bought me something to drink and also to eat.Seeing land out of the window made me so happy that  that the long plane ride was over.I could feel the plane moving down slowly.Then the plane started turning to make the runway. As we were turning the wing looked like it was going to touch the water. When I looked out the window again we were on the runway.
I was really tried when we were making our way to collect our baggage.But was stopped by a man, he said that we had to check our passports first before we collect our baggage.Also This girl was taking photo in the airport and the security guard told her that she wasn't allowed to take photo. He said that she had to delete it and stood next to her to make sure that she did.

Brisbane " what a city". what a beautiful sunny weather but it is too hot for me and everyone else who was in a group. there are some friendly faces and not so friendly faces as well. any how " I am not going to let this damper my holiday. Look out Brisbane here I come, New Zealand style
