AROUND THE WORLD

First News - - Your News - by Lucy

WE have spent the last four years trav­el­ling around the world in our big 4x4 camper truck, called Trucky.

We drove through 58 coun­tries and vis­ited seven con­ti­nents. I went with my big sis­ter Alisha, 12, and my mum and dad. We have just got back home to Eng­land.

We first went to Canada. It was fun to see the griz­zly bears, and my dad even had to hide in the toi­let, as there was one just out­side!

In South Amer­ica, we climbed in the An­des in Peru, but I didn’t eat guinea pig, which is one of their spe­cial dishes.

In Antarc­tica, we slept out on the ice with no tent. Lions were my favourite an­i­mals in Africa.

Aus­tralia is very big. We were there for eight months driv­ing around the whole coun­try.

In Asia I re­ally loved the Taj Ma­hal and we drove up to Mount Ever­est Base Camp.

We were home­schooled by our mum and, as well as learn­ing maths and English, we learnt about the coun­tries we vis­ited. My favourites were learn­ing about Aus­tralian con­victs and evo­lu­tion in the Galá­pa­gos Is­lands.
