   Grazzi għax-xogħol tiegħi fil-qasam tal-ġurnaliżmu, jiena jirnexxili ndur madwar id-dinja. Ix-xahar li għadda kelli l-opportunità li mmur fid-deżert tas-Saħara, fl-Afrika.

   Mort ma’ tliet ġurnalisti li jaħdmu miegħi biex nagħmlu dokumentarju għat-televixin. Wasalna fid-deżert sħun bil-ħelikopter u kellna nilbsu lbiesi twal biex jipproteġuna mir-raġġi qawwija tax-xemx. Ilbisna wkoll kpiepel tal-qasab.

   Meta bdejna l-avventura, ġibt għajnejja wara widnejja għax kull ma stajt nara quddiemi, kienu għaram tar-ramel u blat. Waqt il-vjaġġ użajna kemm il-jeep kif ukoll l-iġmla. Ħadna pjaċir fuq l-iġmla għax qgħadna naqbżu fuq daharhom meta poġġejna fuq il-ħotba. Rajna wkoll sriep velenużi jitkaxkru fuq ir-ramel, ħafna arbuxelli u kakti kif ukoll xi fniek slavaġ. Konna għajjenin minħabba s-sħana qawwija ta’ matul il-ġurnata. Imnalla li billejl it-temperatura titbaxxa!

   Ħin minnhom, minn fuq il-jeep ilmaħna numru ta’ tined. Aħna nżilna ħdejhom u ndunajna li fihom jgħixu l-Bedwini. Dawn kienu nies tassew qalbhom tajba magħna. Kif konna hemm għamilna intervista interessanti lil dawn il-Bedwini. Staqsejnihom minn fejn ġabu l-affarijiet li għandhom fit-tined, minn fejn iġibu l-ilma u kif ikabbru l-ikel biex jieklu. Fl-aħħar offrewlna tazza te, li huma jsejħulu xeħi, biex inlaħalħu griżmejna.

   Wara ħmistax-il ġurnata, irnexxielna nsibu l-informazzjoni li xtaqna għad-dokumentarju. Din kienet tassew avventura indimentikabbli għax għalkemm qattajt ħmistax-il jum taħt xemx taqli l-ġrieden, tgħallimt ħafna affarijiet xjentifiċi li qatt ma kont naf qabel!

   In the summer of 2009, my family and I went on holiday to the beautiful island of Corfu.

   We all woke up at the crack of dawn. When we arrived in Corfu we had to board a bus to Kerkyra and stayed in a family guest house called ‘Anita’. When we arrived, it was pitch dark. My sister and I felt very tired so we went to sleep in our comfortable beds.

   When I woke up the next morning, I tried to get up but I fell down on my bed again. This happened because the bed which I was sleeping on, closed in on me. My mum and dad rushed in to help me because they had heard the commotion in my bedroom. After this funny incident, we had breakfast. We all changed into our swimming costumes and went to swim in the pool, which was amazing.

   The following day, we went to buy some perfumes and cream. My family and I visited ‘Mouse Island’ and saw an airport near the sea. In the evening, we went to a cafe’ called ‘Starbucks’. The next morning I found myself in my mother’s arms. I was refusing to wake up but when I asked her where we were going, she told me that we were going to a water park. My eyes widened and I told her to put me down.I was now fully awake! We went on lots of fun rides. Later on, at night, we went to a Greek culture night. We devoured traditional Greek food, listened to traditional Greek music as well as danced the Zorba. The day after, we rode quad bikes and went to an Orthodox church. We also bought lovely souvenirs for our relatives.

   We had a barrel of fun on this memorable vacation. My brothers, sisters and I were in seventh heaven and we took a lot of pictures. I wish we could go to Corfu again soon!

Books…..

some devoured,

but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”

     On Sunday, August fourteenth 2010, I went to Gozo. It was a surprise and it was the first time that I was travelling to Gozo.

     I went to Gozo with my family and we crossed from Ċirkewwa to Mġarr Harbour on the Gozo ferry. The trip was about a quarter of an hour long. I was over the moon and bursting with excitement. We stayed in a hotel with a swimming pool. In the hotel there were many rooms. There was the Fun Room, the Babies’ Room and the Special Room. The hotel’s name was Hotel Transilvania. When the swimming pool was opened, I jumped into the pool. Then I climbed the ladder and jumped off the spring board. I went to the very top one. I jumped and said ‘Geronimo’ on my way down. Next I went on the sunbed and asked mum If I could buy a chocolate. She bought me the new chocolate, Milkyrelia. As soon as I opened the wrapper, my mouth was watering.

     While in Gozo I visited the Citadel in Victoria and also went to Xagħra. On the last day, I went to Xlendi Bay and I played with the sand. I found a beautiful pebble with a fossil. It was picture perfect. I wrote the date, the place where I found it and my name on it.

      I had a whale of a time in Gozo. I was very eager to visit different places and I felt like a king. Finally I returned back to Malta. I begged my mother so that when we have the chance, we will go to Gozo again! She said we will go again soon!

“I cannot go to school today”
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
“I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.

My mouth is wet, my throat is dry.
I’m going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I’ve counted sixteen chicken pox.

And there’s one more – that’s seventeen,
And don’t you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue,
It might be the instamatic flu.

I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I’m sure that my left leg is broke.
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button’s caving in.

My back is wrenched, my ankle’s sprained,
My ‘pendix pains each time it rains.
My toes are cold, my toes are numb,

I have a sliver in my thumb.

My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,

I think my hair is falling out.

My elbow’s bent, my spine ain’t straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,

There’s a hole inside my ear.

I have a hangnail, and my heart is …
What? What’s that? What’s that you say?
You say today is ………….. Saturday?

G’bye, I’m going out to play!”

    Last summer I went to Disneyland in Paris. I went with my parents and had a lot of fun.

    We went by plane so we had to get up early. The day before, I went to bed at six o’ clock, because in the morning we had to get up at three o’ clock.  Before I went to sleep, I had packed my luggage so in the morning everything would be ready.

   When my mum woke me up, I was bursting with excitement! The minute I got up, I changed my clothes and we left to the airport. I bought a book to pass the time on the plane, but I was so excited, that I couldn’t read a sentence. To kill time,  I used my mum’s mobile phone and listened to music. When we arrived, I started my adventure. On our way to the hotel, we saw Minnie and Mickey. Next we went to the hotel and settled our things. After that, we went to the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower was SO big that at first I was scared to climb it all the way. I had ants in my pants. We went up and took some photos. The view from up there was beautiful.  After that we went on a roller coaster ride. To ride the roller coaster you had to be at least 1 metre tall. It really went fast. Later, we went to a show and saw clowns and magicians. After the show we went to eat. Then we went to rest for a while in our room. We had a big screen T.V.

   I really had fun and enjoyed myself during this vacation. I hope that we will go on holiday again, soon.
