It was sad leaving school and I will miss all my friends.
15th Feb - It was so hot on the plane, one man fainted and another needed oxygen! A man called Kapila picked us up at the airport and drove us from Colombo to Kandy. We saw rubber trees, rice paddy filelds, pineapples, cashew nuts and bananas. They were much smaller than the ones you can buy in the supermarket.
We rode on an elephant, which was amazing but also a bit scary too. It was even hotter in Sri Lanka, my t-shirt was sticking to me - phew! The elephant sprayed me with river water and that helped me to keep cool.
When I tried to go to sleep at night the gecko lizards running about on the roof kept me awake.
We are Jonathan and Sophie aged 8 and 10. This is the story of our travels through Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Western Australia as we search for elegant elephants and mischievous monkeys.
We are only young travellers but are open to new experiences and sights
"I would like to eat something disgusting, like a spider" - Jonathan
"I would like to see lots of animals, besides the elephants and monkeys I hope
to see koalas, kangaroos, and whales in Australia" - Sophie
