Thorpe Park

Today we went to Thorpe Park. Thorpe Park is for teen agers and adults. It has a lot of big scary rides and hardly any smaller rides. I vote Chessington the best for me, Lilly and mum.

Angry Birds land


On a ride we loved. It was called the teacup ride.

Blackpool Tower

Today we went up the Blackpool Tower and it was like the Eiffel Tower in Paris. 

I loved the wind in my face from a hight of 150 m in the air. It was amazing. DID YOU KNOW that the Eiffel Tower is 324 m tall?  So that means its twice higer than this one.

Day as a chambermaid at the Madhyamaka Buddhist Meditation Temple

The Buddhist temple has a B and B and has about 30 rooms.

Today we worked as chambermaids striping the beds and ironing sheets. It was better then doing weeds in the sun all day.

I liked ironing. I got to use a iron press.

To a Corona

Today we went to A Corona. Its to the north of Santiago.

We walked around lost trying to find a beach for a about an hour. We got on a train to get there.

The beach looked so good, but it was freezing cold


Us going in the water. IT WAS FREEZING. It came straight from ice. Did you know that there is no land between here and America?


Us in front of an awesome monument.


The tower of Hercules. The amazing thing about this was is that it is a Roman Lighthouse and it still works.

Today we went to the pilgrim mass in Santiago. The incense is clearing the sins from the camino. walkers from saint jean de pet e port. 

Me at the mass. A lot of words to wait for. It was all in Latin

Day 52 to Santiago

Today we got into Santiago and it was a long way in and we got lost but got our way on track again.

Walking through the towns are always the worst because the arrows are not there sometimes.

On the way we where starving hungry so we got a kebab at a shop on the way down. In Spain I grew a new addiction to kababs. There just so tasty. When we got in we where very tired and ready for bed.

Before we went to bed though, we went and got our certificates. It was so cool.


zzZZ


This is me and my certificate. I a very tired, but very happy.

Did you know that Dad got a certificate too?  Its because we walked the Camino in his honour. I think thats nice.
