Extracts from this document...


A New Era As I was on my way home from another day at school, my Mum was looking anxious and she had something to tell me.

As I showed my ticket to the air hostess, she pointed to and said "go straight down the plane" I thought to myself that this was a very silly thing to say because that I the only way you can go STRAIGHT. The flight was effortless and as the plane started it's decent I was growing more and more anxious. What had they done? How were they? And what did my apartment look like? I went through passport control at the other end; I then picked my bag of the baggage conveyor belt and headed for the door. As it opened I saw my family waving at me and I was overjoyed. ...read more.
