  1. Holiday at Fun Island Resort, Maldives

    I found this more difficult than the snorkelling. You have to wear flippers, a bulky life jacket that would fill up with air when you press a button in case you need to come to the seas surface in an emergency and a heavy oxygen tank on your back.

  2. Oceans of Sand.

    Not many considering that there was sixteen passengers. We decided to search around the train for any other survivors, food or drink left on the train, then meet at the front of the train later. After pretty unsuccessful searches, finding no people, no food and only 6 bottles of water, we decided to get to know each other.

  1. Dolphin Island by Arthur C. Clarke, a plot summary.

    Further scrutiny revealed that across the five hundred by five hundred feet room, people in strange uniforms were talking; they were actually shouting at each other at something pointing to the numerous cogs and dials. Deciding not to interfere with the unsettled discussion he creped away and found his way into a small room, which seemed to hold cargo.

    Unlike my brother I care ALOT about my appearance. Everything has to be colour co-ordinated. My dad is always fussing at me, he says I have loads of clothes and hardly any of them are worn. It had been a long, tiring journey and a boring one at that.
