The final leg – by Nikki

Sunday, August 31st, 2008
In Koh Hong we were with our cousins, Anne, Eric and Lucie. We had Tui Tai and they had rented a Sunsail boat. We took our dinghy to a cave and I found this entrance that was shaped like a fish because I was using my imagination, and if you look through the hole you can see the sea changes colour half way through.

Indonesia – by Nicky

Sunday, November 11th, 2007
For the last few months we have been in Indonesia.One of the places where we anchored I took a picture of my best toy Snowy. She sleeps with me at night and is very cuddly. I even took her to Pangkil, a private island, where we stayed for four days with four other families. I met a friend called Annie and on the last night we were there, my sister and I had a sleepover with her. It was great fun because my mummy let us talk after lights out for 10 minutes. At Pangkil we also had a midnight swim, a treasure hunt, and we went fishing. It was so much fun. I did not catch anything but Annie did.

Andamans, Similans and Surins – by Nicola

Saturday, April 28th, 2007
In the Similans in Thailand, our friends Daniel and Jenna had a boat called Shayile and two turtles came up and swam round the boat and we snorkelled with the turtle. It was very friendly and we could touch it. The shell felt hard and smooth like it had been laying in the water all day long.

This is in Hole in the Wall in Langkawi. We went to a restaurant that had chicken skins and we fed the chicken skins to the eagles. They came down to get them and one swooped down and we could hear the wind from its wings.

Singapore and Melaka Straits – by Nicola

Friday, November 24th, 2006
This is me with my mummy and daddy in a rainforest near Kuching. The name of the rainforest was Bako National Park.We saw a huge pig (wild boar) in the forest and some fish in the rivers which were red because of all the leaves. On the beach we picked up some long pointy shells – they were very sharp and beautiful. We had leave them behind though as it was a National Park.
