Last week I went to Croatia with my family. It was the first time I had been to Croatia and the first sailing holiday I had ever been on, it was all very new and a bit stressful at times!

Our first stop was a little town on the island of Zlarin, this was one of my favourite places we visited, it was a local town which I love because you really feel that you are part of a community rather than a tourist.

Book Corner - Life of Pi Review

As promised, I have gotten round to reviewing this book!
I have been reading it throughout exam season so it has taken much longer than I would have liked to get into it.

Life of Pi is a story about a 16 year old boy surviving on a life boat with a zebra, hyena,orangutan and a Bengal Tiger.  The idea is so obscure that you are unable to compare it to any other book!  It is beautifully written and has the most original ideas I have ever read.  I have to say though, in parts there was a bit of gore which sent shivers down my spine!

Summer + update!

Ok . . . so what's been going on?

I finished school about 3 weeks ago now after finishing the last of my GCSE's and since then it has been non-stop!  I have been going to parties, attending induction days, completing my silver DofE and trying to start the mountain of holiday work I have been given!
My holiday only really starts next week when I get to take a trip to Croatia!
