My Trip To Australia

One morning,

My sister and I were so excited to be flying to Australia.First it was early in the morning me and my sister had to get ready have a shower so we could get to the Airport fast.When everyone was ready we all hopped in the the van we took off fast,the van was full because there were a lot of people in our van because they wanted to say a goodbye to me and my sister.

Then we finally arrived at the Auckland Airport all of us got  out of the van with excitement.We finally took small steps into the Airport then we saw our Aunty Moira and went with her because she had our tickets. We were like running around the Airport because we had to do one thing then the other, it was so tiring.Next we went and sat down and my other Aunty. She brought us some KFC before we left then my mum came it was time for us to go.There was some tears but we were okay.Finally we walked through the door and walked through lots and lots of doors then we boarded our plane.

Finally we walked to our seat we sat down i wanted to  sit by the window but my sister  sat down near the window  first.We were flying on the plane it was a very long time we were on the plane i felt a bit dizzy so i went to the toilet when i went to the toilet i splashed water on my face and i felt a little better then i sat back down.
Time went bye and then the pilot said through his speaker “We will be landing the Gold Coast” I was so happy we were finally there it was my first time away from New Zealand so i was already missing New Zealand.Then our plane started zooming fast because we were about to land in AUSTRALIA.

Now it was time for us to hop of the plane,We walked down the stairs it was very loud because the Airplane engine was still on.Then we walked through the first door that had lead us through shops then to the bag claim i can't remember what it was called.Finally we could go out we went out we were looking everywhere for my auntie who we were staying with.Then i spotted a light blue t-shirt i was sure it was her then she looked at us we ran over and gave her a great big hug.

Then we walked down to the car and put our bags in the boot i hopped in and put my seatbelt on and then we left.While we were driving i could see all the land that wasn't full with houses and stuff.It was a very long time driving back to there home but the ride was so cool because we could see the beautiful sea and sand also we could see the big rides.

Then suddenly we came to a stop we had come to a house i didn't know if it was hers or someone else but it was my aunties it was a great big house it didn’t have upstairs but it was a very long house.Next we walked into our room and put our bags down we next walked into the living room where the a air conditioner was it was very hot in Australia i wanted to take off my t-shirt.Then she asked “are you guys hungry?” we both said yep we went and ate she pulled out a bag of chicken,bread and mayonnaise.

Next day she asked us if we would like to go to Movie World we said yes with excitement we all got changed very quick.Then we left in the car to Movie World when we got to movie world the first thing we did was give our pass then we got in next we all walked to a restaurant in there we went and ate we all had yummy food and nice cold drinks.After that we all went and walked around the first ride we  went on was the Scooby Doo ride it was very scary that i almost cried.Next we went on all the other ride the ride that was the most scariest was the green lantern ride i felt like crying and i felt so dizzy because we went upside down side to side twisted and turned it was so scary and fun at the same time.Then it was time for us to leave we we walked out of the gates and waited outside for someone to pick us up.Finally they came we hopped in and went we all were so tired so we all fell asleep.So that was my trip to Australia and after that we went to more cool theme parks,ate,slept and more.
