If I Was a Koala…

If I was a koala…

I would go to Antarctica to visit my friend Penguin.

First I hopped into a 4W drive. The 4W drive took me to Cairns. Then I took the Country Link train all the way to Sydney along the coast. The seats were really good because they were made out of fluffy sheep wool. It was a very fast train and it took 10 hours. When I arrived to Sydney in Central Station I got off the train. I waited 5 minutes to catch the airport link train. When I got to the airport I put my bag on the conveyer belt and I then boarded Air New Zealand plane. The flight took 4 hours and 40 minutes because there were some problems with the engine, but everything was fine. When we got there it was winter, it snowed a little bit, but it was OK. Then I got on a bus all the way down to Invercargill, which is at the bottom of New Zealand. At Invercargill an Icebreaker ship was waiting for me. The cruise took 3 days and 4 nights, because there were some very strong sea weeds that got tangled in the propeller at the back of the ship. Finally, I arrived to Antarctica, but before I got to my friend’s house I stopped at a café because I was very hungry and tired. My friend was very happy to see me and he welcomed me in his cave home next to the water. THE END
