Do you know which place in New Zealand was the first ever capital city? Well I do and this is where my family and I spent our holiday, exploring the beauty that this place has in it. It is called Russell. Russell is like an island but more like a place than an island.
Well before we go any further I've got to tell you about the where we stayed at. Well, it was a motel, but not really a motel it was like a cottage, but a bit bigger. In-side of our big and tall cottage their were stairs that curled like a spiral, we called this the spiral stairs. Their 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms and 1 living-room. To my eyes it did not look like a cottage it looked like an ordinary flash house.
let me tell you about the outside of the house. Right in the middle of all these houses was a swimming pool. It even had it's own hydryslide and playground and it even had it's own spa pool that warms you up when ever you were cold or felt like relaxing. Where we stayed at was incredible.
Not far from our cottage was the ocean. You could smell the fish and the seaweed that were in the water. My cousins and I were fishing on the warf. I caught 1 fish and my cousin Malaete'a caught the other. I was amazing. After a while we packed and left to go home and swim in the pool.
The weather was wonderful and the sun was shining like a bright star. We knew it was time to swim. Bombing into the pool felt refreshing because we just spent 4 hours of driving from Auckland to Russell and we stood at the warf for about an hour and a half. So we decided to get a cool swim and relax our bodies. i felt as if I were flying in the sky when I got into this fantastic pool.
Being in Russell was amazing even when we went across to Paihia. Paihia was across from Russell place. But in this place there were more living things and what I mean by livings is that their is more action and more fun (but not more fun than Russell) and even more stores to buy things out of. But this holiday was really really really really really fun.
You should go to Russell some time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)
