Activity 1: After a very busy day of sightseeing you and your group drive from Tane Mahuta to your hotel in Dargaville. When you arrive you decide to sit down and record your thoughts in your travel diary. Before you start writing, take a minute to read more about Rangitoto island, Karekare beach and Tane Mahuta. On your blog, tell us which of the three places you most enjoyed visiting and why.
I thought that visiting Tane Mahuta was amazing! Walking through the trail I saw lot's of shades of green it was beautiful. Tane Mahuta was very appealing and also made me feel and look like I was a dwarf! During the tramp I think most of all I saw green everywhere. The tramp took about 5 or 6 minutes. I think my visit to the Kauri Tree, Tane Mahuta was awesome!
Activity 2: As an island nation, New Zealand is completely surrounded by water. It is the perfect place for people who like to swim or to sail! While in Dargaville, recovering from your busy day of sightseeing, you notice a number sailboats going by. One of the boats is manned by a young German girl named Laura Derek. At the age of fourteen she sailed around the world the entire world by herself. You can watch a short video clip about her adventures here: Laura Dekker sailing trip.
Let’s imagine that you had the chance to interview Laura while in Dargaville. On your blog post five questions that you would ask her.
1. Hi Laura! What inspired you to Sail the world?
2. Did you have mixed feelings before starting the journey?
3. Did you feel lonely during the trip?
4. If you were to bring 1 person during the trip who would it be?
5. Who would you like to thank for making your trip possible?
