Activity 1
Once you have read these phrases you will be ready to leave the airport and head to your hotel. Take a moment and imagine how you might feel if you were standing in the airport in a foreign country and you had to figure out how to communicate with people in a brand new language. Would you be scared? Would you feel confident? Write a short poem that describes how you might be feeling (i.e. excited, happy, scared, nervous, etc).
Poem of how I would feel:

I'm out of the plane feeling nervous what should I do should I play some tunes. Oh please what do I do I. I need to loo no I was just kidding wait do I do I actually do. Wait lets go to the hotel where it might be fun. I start to feel to feel confident, but it's going down. Arrive at the hotel don't know what to eat. I think I should eat marmite, and toast with some yummy tea. My braveness is going up let's to have fun.  Now let's go and explore the Harbor bridge done!

Activity 2
Take a selfie that captures how you might be feeling. I think that I would most likely be feeling scared.

Here is a picture of how I might be feeling. I would most likely be scared/confused:

    1. Hey Mark,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog! I kind of messed up the poem but it was pretty good! I showed my sister Loseli my work, and she was really proud of me.

      Cheers, Amelia!
