You wouldn’t believe what I did in the holiday!  In the holidays we went to Rotorua. I went with mum, dad and Makalo! When we got there it was a little bit  cold. I was shaking a little. When we got inside the hotel I jumped on the bed and watched TV. I watched on channel two. “This hotel is great,” I said. When it got a little late, we went to a restaurant. I got a burger and chips. I said, “Yum!”After that we went to bed and there were two beds.The next morning I fell out of the bed. I said,“Ouch!”  What a good holiday!
