The Ride to Copenhagen, Demark

"Click,Clack, Click,Click. Click,Clack, Click, Click," went the wheels of the train as we went away, far away, from Germany. As we entered our "room" we saw that three other people were there and 1 was not assigned to the seat he was in, but then he got out and went to his assigned "room". Then we got settled and every thing was OK. After that we introduced ourselves. About 50 mins. after that, bedtime sounded good so we went to bed. But where are the beds!? We didn't get sleeper cars! But no worries... we had Nat sleep on a seat, me sleep under the seats, and my parents sleep together on their seats. It felt like a freezer down there! We zipped our two windbreakers together to make a blanket - that helped a lot. I imagined I could see the train tracks and the train wheels going really fast. It made me dizzy thinking about it. In the middle of the night, we dropped off half the train, had a police investigation for some reason but that was all, and we went back to sleep. Then, when we woke up, we were almost there.

Chocolate Museum

This is is a coco tree in a green house at the Chocolate Museum.... since coco trees only grow where it is hot and humid all year round, the people had to make a green house for the
coco trees inside.

This is a picture of me and my sister looking at a machine that moves the chocolate to the other conveyor belt. The chocolate it forgets falls to another conveyor belt to be melted down and to be made into more chocolate pieces.

I could hear the screams of fun on the Falcon, dizziness on the Mad Mill, and from getting wet on the Splash. I could see the people having so much fun on the rides, and with such little time, I had absolutely no idea where to start.

We were camping out at Duinrell, an amusement park with a camp site, with Tante Elgin, Stefan, and Silas. My family and I slept in a tent while Tante Elgin, Stefan, and Silas slept in a travel trailer. My and my sister's favorite
rollercoaster was the Falcon. First, you go straightt up and down. Next, a loop the loop. Then you turn and go upside down. Finally, you turn again and go back to where you started. SO COOL!
