Yesterday was my last day of school before I go away. I just want to say thank you to all my friends at school because you’ve all been really supportive to me while I was at Bridgewater. Thank you to all the teachers at Bridgewater for helping me learn lots of new things.
GOODBYE BRIDGEWATER !!

We’ve booked our tickets for Sri Lanka, WOO HOOO!!!
Were flying on the 1st of January 2014 from Heathrow Airport to Colombo, Sri Lanka.
We’ll be leaving at 9 PM British time on the 1st of January but arriving at Colombo on the 2nd of January at 1 PM ( British time 7 AM ).
I’m really excited about going because we are going to see lots of things that not many people see.
We’re going to the doctors to have some of our vaccinations. We are having jabs for Typhoid and Hepatitis A today. A vaccination is where doctors inject you with part of a disease so your immune system learns to fight it.
The other jabs we need are: Rabies (x3), Japanese Encephalitis (x3)and Hepatitis B (3).
We also need a drink to protect us against Cholera and tablets against Malaria.

We had our first snorkelling lesson on Thursday with Rachel, who taught me to swim when I was little.
We’re going around the world, visiting different countries.

I’m mostly looking forward to surfing on Waikiki beach in Hawaii.
