Journal brought to you by Sophie whose Father is going to be very very proud of her
Today we got up late as usual (as you can see we are really using our time wisely!) and then went to play mini golf at this million dollar mini golf course. It was so cool! They had clearly spent a lot of money making it. Each of the holes were so detailed and the whole course looked amazing. For example the first hole was at the airport and there was a plane and terminal and little people standing around. It was wicked! There was also a castle and you had to hit the ball through the gates and over the bridge, a ski resort where your ball got carried up to the top of a mountain in a ski lift once you had hit it into the tunnel and the last hole was a sweet factory and when you had putted your ball for the last time then you were given a free lolly from the factory! It was so fun! I didn't start off well as it took me 14 shots the first hole but then Father, you will be so proud, I turned it around and then came second! I beat Tami, which was great as she has never let me forget the time in SPain about 3 years ago when she whipped me at crazy golf. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Afterwards we went to the bar to play pool (I am improving so much! I can nearly beat a 6 year old now! ) and then went to the supermarket. That evening we went to meet up with some friends we had met on our travels. This is how it happened. While we were in the supermarket a couple of days before this really strange guy was following me around and I was really scared. He had his face covered and went wherever I went, even when I practically jogged down the frozen food section (yes, I looked like a complete weirdo). Anyway when I stopped he came and jumped on me and it turned out it was Cam who we had met in Australia! How crazy?! It was great to see him and we arranged to meet up with him and Jeff. Anyway Cam didn't turn up because he wasn't very well but we saw Jeff and his other Canadian friend and went to this really cool bar that had a roof that just lifted right off! It was so good to see Jeff and catch up with him. It is always nice to see people again that you have met on your travels.
Unfortunately that is probably the last time we are going to see them until I go to Canada at some point. Yes Mother I forgot to tell you I have to go and visit ALL the friends I have met travelling and they happen to live all over the world so I will be going away again soon!
It was a good day today and I feel inspired to play golf when I get back. You up for a game dad??
