Today the Strum family were leaving in the evening. In the morning all the boys and Daphne went to ride elephants. On the way Daphne was on the front of the elephant and so did I. Everybody was so dehydrated. It was boiling. After we got off them we went straight to buy a drink. I finished my drink in around 30 seconds. We went in the van and started going to the resort. When we got back everybody went to the beach. Again I was in the pool and then ate some lunch. Then I went with my Dad to snorkel.
Today we decided to take a kano to a deeper place in the sea. We got there and tied our kano into the ballon thing in the sea. Then we put on the equipment and jumped in. It was steal shallow although we did sea a new kind of thing. We saw a huge school of fish.
It was very nice. Then we heat marshmallows and went to the estate because the Strum family had to pack up. After they packed up we went with them on the baggy to say good - bye. After they checked out they went in the van and went off. We went back to the estate to have dinner. After the lovely dinner we went to the pool and after that went to sleep.

We woke up and had breakfast. Then we went to the beach. As usual I was in the pool a lot and sometimes in the sea. It was too windy to play ping - pong but it was hot as usual. Because the snorkeling was so fun me and my Dad decided that in 4 o'clock after lunch we will go snorkeling just in the reef next to the beach. 4 o'clock was a perfect time because it was steal worm but you didn't need any hat or sunscreen. Me and my Dad sat off. The water was so sallow. We were scared that if there would be to many sea urchins we would accidentally heat one of them and get hurt, but for the whole time we were in the water seeing beautiful corals and fish we saw only one very big sea urchin, so what we did was just go to the different direction of the urchin and continue on our way. For dinner we organized sort of like a buffet for people who were friends of the Strum family who were suppose to come to our estate for dinner. Unfortunately nobody showed up so we decided to eat without them. Don't worry they never came. That small buffet was delicious including the deserts we had. After that we talked and listened to music a little and after a while everybody decided to go to bed.
Today was a big day. We were going on a boat that would take us to a reef were we could snorkel and to a little beach on an Island. When we got on we checked the boat. The boat was very cool. The lady gave us some drinks. We played a little and talked and then got a little board but then we finally got to the snorkeling area. We all put on the snorkeling gear and jumped in. It was incredible! There were so many fish and corals. First there were mostly fish and no corals and then there was so many different corals and sea urchins. I was in the water for like 30 minutes and 15 minutes after we head out. I played with the kids a little and then we ate lunch on the boat. Then we got to the beach. Everyone was steal eating so we decided to stay until we finished. Itai and my Dad swam to the beach and then came back when we were still eating. My Mom didn't feel good so she went to the beach to relax in the shade. Evyatar and I decided to go with her. when we got on the beach we saw a shade are so we sat there. Evyatar and I were searching for small crabs. We found some but they kept on running away. After that everybody came. Some headed in the water some didn't. I was trying to catch a fish. After a while the fish got used to me and I was so close to catching one, but we had to go. My Dad was so relaxed he almost fell asleep. After we got on our boat were heading home. It took us like an hour to get to the beach and the whole sailing thing took like 5 hours. After that it was already 5:30 P.M. so we decided to go to our estate. Everyone got a good shower. We were in the living room for a while and then we had dinner. After that we just talked and talked until people got tired and eventually went to bed.
At the small beach after we snorkeled.
Behind my Dad and I is the place were we snorkeled.
We woke up and had some big breakfast. Then Daphne Evyater (the son of the Strum Family) and I went to the swimming pool in our Estate. All the parents were talking about that these Estate doesn't fit the amount of people we had, so we talked to the manager and they said they will move us to another Estate that we saw and we thought was good for us. So until they moved all our stuff to the other Estate we went to the beach. The beach was so nice. The sand was so soft and they had a main pool there too. I checked how cold the water was in the sea and it was so warm. I have never felt such hot water in the sea. But I didn't stay there long until I decided to go the pool. The pool was awesome. I found these cool jump I can do on the pool. After the pool I sat with my Mom and ate some lunch in the bar. I played with her Jenga. Jenga is this game were you have the building and you have to take as much parts from the building as you can without making it fall. After I ate my lunch we stayed there for some more and then went back to our new Estate. We went to the pool there again and after that it was already dinner time. In dinner we just stayed in the Estate and the 2 helpers (they were boys) called the kitchen to make us dinner. Dinner was great, Although I can't memorize what food we had but I know it was delicious. After that we stayed up till late and talked with everybody. I mostly played with Yoav the cute baby. After all that long day we went to sleep.
We woke up in the morning and ate breakfast. After that we just sat in the lobby doing random stuff until we would have to go. This time for the coming back we decided to take the bullet train with Giora and his daughters. We thought of using the train because it take 45 minutes to get to the train station and then the bullet train takes an 1 hour and a half to get to Tokyo and then you take another train that takes an hour to the airport, which means it's faster to get their, we have our friends with us and it could be a fun experience to ride in the 2nd fastest train in the World!!!
After about 5 minutes in the car that was taking us to he station we saw a group of monkeys on the side of the road and some of them were on the road. After 45 minutes in the car we took our bags out of the car that took us to the station. We had a whole hour until the train will board so we went to mcdonald's. Their we ate a small meal and then sat off to the train. When we got on the train it was so cool! I asked my Dad if all the seats are that cool and he said that we just paid more money to be in like first class seat in the train. The train was awesome because the seats were nice and comfy and we got to Tokyo station in only an hour and a half. But then we had to take the train to Narita Airport which is slow so it takes around an hour. Before we got of the train to Narita we said good bye to Giora and his daughters and then we sat of to the airport. When we got on the plane, we saw it is a boing 747 (Jumbo) which means it is a two floor airplane with better Economy Class seat that have movies and other cool. The flight was long but it went fast and after we got our luggage we sat of to the Airport Express. The Airport Express took us to the Hong Kong Station nice and fast and then we met my Mom and my Aunt and her daughter.
As usual we woke up and had some breakfast. Then all of us (that includes me, my Dad, my sister, Tamara, Giora and Gaya), came with Ken and took to many different cool places we have never been to, like the Gondola. We went all over different mountains and different cable cars. It was awesome! The onlt porblem we had is my hands got frozen and it hurts especially if you nedd to go to a hot place and you have to wait like 10 minunts (I will tell you about it in a different paragraph). Anyway after my hands got better we were on our way to the hotel. I went to the Onson with my Dad to relax a little from the big day we had. After eating dinner and playing some pool the lights in the bar suddenly turned off and everyone sang the happy birthday song. Then a cake came and the person cut the cake and gave to me, my family, Tamara, Gaya and some other nice people that we met just in the hotel. For me it was the best way to finish my birthday.
Ever since the first time I went skiing my hand gets frozen from the coldness after a while. My Dad and I are currently trying to solve the problem and I can't wait until it will, you see if your hands get frozen all the time it's not that fun skiing or doing anything that has something to do with coldness.
We woke in the morning and had some delicious breakfast. After a refreshing meal my sister Daphne went with the hotel manager's (the captain) son Ken. Ken is a ski very nice ski coach that had trained me last year. After we checked Daphne was with Ken my Dad me and Tamara (Tamara is the daughter of Giora a friend of my Dad from work) went skiing around Sun Valley (the ski area we were), until Daphne's lesson was done. About half and hour before we had to come back we went to this one hill that is really easy but at the sides their were lots of little hills that people used. One time I saw this person that did a flip in the air with his snowboard and didn't fall!!! isn't that amazing. We decided to try those hills and it was FUN!!! I almost went a meter in the air. After a couple of times we stopped and came back to the hotel where we met Daphne and ate some lunch. After that we continued until the end of the day. Then we ate dinner went to the Onson, Daphne went to Giora"s room because it had a bath so we used it. After all that we relaxed in the lobby and finally after I read in my book I went to sleep.
