France, Chamonix!

11:00 pm, we arrived at the house we were going to stay in. It was pitch black. As we got out of the car, I heard a door slowly creak open. Then, a clattering of paws on the gravel and Coco the dog was licking me all over! Coco loves to lick. She will lick almost anything! Dave and Caro, our friends, followed Coco out. My sister and I were put in the basement bedroom. It was really cool. The next day the real fun started. We got up and met Charlie for the first time. Charlie is our friends little baby. He is so cute!

We did a LOT  of things in France. We went to an animal park, we went up a gondola and did a walk up a mountain, we went to the public pool three times, we went swimming in a huge lake with bouncy stuff and we went to an amazing sweet shop! On the last day, I did rock climbing up an actual cliff! It wasn't too high though. After that we clipped on to a zip line (Flying fox, but without a seat) over a small lake! It was a bit low and I got completely dunked in the lake. It was freezing!

In the middle of all this we spent a day in Italy!(Which  is my favourite country!) We visited a castle, a cathedral, ate some delicious gelato (Italian Ice cream) and PIZZA and then we went to the pools. Oh, and I forgot to mention IT WAS WAY TOO HOT!!!!

  4. Hi Malena, I really enjoyed reading your blogs. So Italy is your favourite country, it is one of mine too! After Canada, Italy comes a close 2nd although it is nearly 30 years since I have been there!! We have hosted two students from Italy so you never know I may get back there one day to visit them. I spoke to your Dad the other day when he arrived home, it sounds like you are having an amazing trip and I am looking forward to hearing more and seeing some more photos. Love from Auntie Ali.
