Amazing Adventures

My Weird Vacation

Hi guys, I just got back from my vacation and I am telling you it was really weird. I went from less than 0º degress to 78º. This was because we went skiing in Dear Valley then went to Duke to visit my brother. We had so much fun skiing. The first day I didn’t have a good instructer but the person I had for days 2 and 3 made up for it. he helped me go from some steep blues seeming hard to doing black dimonds with moguls and trees. I called him Neil thebanana peel. After three long days of skiing we took a flight to Duke.  We didn’t  see my brother because of pledging a frat. That was fine because we saw him the next day. The next day we went to a Duke basketball game and had amazing seats. we were so close to the court and I got to sit next to my brother. I had and amazing vacation did you? Did you stay home or go away? Tell me what you did in the comments!

 

 

 

It’s a New Year

As you all know last night was New Years Eve. last night was an amazing night for me. Me and my family went to The Melting pot which is my favorite restaurant ever, I even wrote a post on it. At The Melting Pot you either are dipping things in fondue or cooking your own food. after we ate me and my parents went to go see the new Star Wars movie. we were there until eleven forty-five and we got home less than two minutes before the ball drop.

Who Needs the Beach

( If you haven’t read my last two posts you should because it will help you understand better.)

Besides the beach in Costa Rica we also went to a completely different environment, the rainforest. On the drive from one hotel to the other we stopped for White Water Rafting. The rafting was harder than what we expected. For example we were beginners and going down twelve and five foot drops and going completely under water when we hit the surface.

At the hotel in the rainforest we went on ziplines, a hike in the rainforest, and went in hot water springs. There were six huge ziplings that you go flying down. I had a blast.on the hike we saw a giant waterfall and hanging bridges which are bridges the sway side to side as you walk on them.

The hot water springs are naturally heated flowing water. The water in our hotels springs came from the volcano it is located near. The springs had many waterfalls and the higher the spring the hotter the water was.

A Costa Rican Sunset

( I just got back from Costa Rica, if you haven’t read my last post it will give you some more information to help you understand more.)

When we were on the boat we got an amazing sunset. It was even at the perfect time of five thirty on the dot. The sun set over the horizon with mountains on either side. Even after the sun set so many colors still lit up the sky.

The Animals of Costa Rica

(Hi everyone, I just got back from Costa Rica and I thought I would tell you a little bit about my experience there.)

In Costa Rica there were many animals both in the water and on land. Their were monkeys, jellyfish, starfish, dolphins, iguanas, fish, many bugs, and three sharks.

The monkeys were on the beach right over my head. It was a family passing through there was nine of them in total. They stayed there two days climbing trees, getting separated because they were afraid, and then coming back together.

The jellyfish made the water almost unbearable the day we went on the boat. I was swimming to shore so I could eat lunch and I kept getting tiny stings although I thought it was just salt in my cuts but I didn’t have cuts,. I continued swimming, following Adam when he screamed, “Ow” and then a second later I felt it to as my whole arm plunged into the water only to get stung by a giant jellyfish,

I encountered the jellyfish again when we went snorkeling. I wanted to go in really badly to see the sharks but the secondI got in the jellyfish were back so I quickly scrambled back out. When my brother, Daniel saw the sharks he screamed shark and Josh started swimming back to the boat as fast as he could. At the end of snorkeling the instructor brought a starfish back to the so I could hold it in my hand.

When we started out on the boat we saw some dolphins. They had come out to play, they played in the waves, jumping around, and swimming all around our boat.
