  1. “Probably not, I will ask our neighbours to look after him during the days, until after the funeral is over and done with, then we can decide what to do after that,” Mum replied. A few days later, Mum and I travelled up to the airport to collect my Uncle Rangi, who was quite a solid built man, who would easily drop someone in a tackle, and he nearly squeezed all the air out of me as he gave me a welcome hug. “Hello little sister, it is good to see you again after such a long time,” Uncle Rangi said before giving Mum a tight hug as well. When we arrived back home, I went next door to

I was now very curious on what was been said and why Jacob’s parents were calling us. “Yes that should be fine, what time do you want him to be there?” Mum said in response to some information, as I continued to listen to one side of the conversation. “Very well, I will have him there at 7 am, goodbye till then,” Mum said before ending the call, and she took a sip of her tea before taking a seat at the kitchen bench. “It appears that you have been invited to go sailing tomorrow morning, and we have to be at the yacht club by 7 am,” Mum informed me. For the rest of the day, I was exc

    You mention in the comments that the text is larger, some how the text is smaller, which makes it more difficult for me to read Preston, aka Quokka
  6. Chapter 1 All of my life I have had a fascination of trains, I guess mainly because my father was a train engineer in his younger days, and also that he took us on many train journeys as we were growing up. Although I was born in the suburb of Frankton, just out of Queenstown, in the lakes district of the South Island of New Zealand, I had only spent my first three years there, before the family moved to Australia. My father is was born and brought up in Port Lincoln, in South Australia, which is where we settled after the move from New Zealand, while my mothers parents are from the
  7. Having recently lost his father from a mining accident in Northern Western Australia, twelve year old Hunter Mitchell along with his much younger brother Fraser learnt from their mother, that we may be moving to her ancestral home of the Cook Islands, in the central Pacific. This meant that Hunter would be leaving his good friends, especially his best friend Jacob, who along with his father and older brother, took me on a sailing trip onboard a racing trimaran, to help me stop thinking of the loss of my father, and had an awesome time.

    Day 5 I was woken up early again by the noisy group of guests as they had breakfast, and I just did some reading for a while, knowing that I would not get back to sleep. I had to delay going off exploring later this morning due to it raining fairly heavily, and it was 11.30, before I was able to go out and have some brunch. It began to rain again soon after returning to the accommodation, so I did some more reading until the rain cleared before setting off to explore another beach, known as Greta Beach. After a heck of a lot of walking, I finally made it to the beach, well to the t

    Day 3 I woke mid morning once again, and I went in search for food and bottled water, which wasn’t easy on a Sunday, and after a few failed searches I headed back to the small supermarket in Poon Saan, which I was pleased to see is open and I bought what I needed and headed back to my accommodation. With it being Sunday, I decided to just relax today, and restart exploring tomorrow. After a shower and change I headed down the road to the tavern, arriving at 5.30, in time to relax and soak in the island, before enjoying a delicious lamb and veg dinner. Day 4 Woke up earlier than

    Day 1 Continued. Wow, what a long trip that was, the whole journey took seven hours including the time that we were at Learmonth and Cocos Keeling Island, and I was fairly tired from the whole journey, although I managed to snooze a bit for the longer part of the journey. We had to go through customs and quarantine once again, which I was expecting, and after collecting my hire car, I headed to the main settlement at Flying Fish Cove, Christmas Island. Due to it being New Years Day, most shops and other places were closed for the public holiday, so I went for a drive around the other s
