My Idol - Identity - NZL

My idol, the one I look up to is Ocean Ramsey.

Ocean Ramsey is a model, marine biologist and a conservationist who specializes in sharks.
Any spare time she has she will be in the ocean swimming with sharks, turtles or many other
ocean animals.

I love sharks and want to study them and work with them when I’m older. I was first introduced
to her work when my mum found a clip of her on Instagram. I am fascinated by sharks and
other ocean animals and i would love to be around them a lot. I have always wanted to go
swimming with sharks, dolphins, turtles and other ocean animals.

I have always wanted to meet Ocean Ramsey and we both have interests about sharks and
other ocean animals.

SLJ - Togs or Trackies?

Week 3 Day 1 Activity 1
On your blog, tell us what time of year you think is best for tourists for come and visit. Be sure to share at least three things that tourists could do while they were here in NZ.

I think that tourists should come during the Summer time because a lot of our native things are out.

Here are a couple activities for tourists -
- Go swimming
 - Visit Hobbiton
- Walk some of our many beautiful tracks

There are so many more I just can't list

SLJ - Going, going....gone

Week 1 Day 5 Activity 3
Let’s imagine that New Zealand was going to sink to the bottom of the ocean next week (Eek!). Before it sinks you are asked to write a blog post telling people what life was like in New Zealand in 2018. On your blog, post a description of life in New Zealand in 2018. Please remember that the people who read your post will have never been to New Zealand or even seen a picture so it is your job to ‘paint a picture’ of New Zealand using your words. You can also post pictures, if you wish. Be sure to fully attribute the pictures.
I lived in a small area inland called Moonlight/Atarau, about half an hour away from Greymouth, on the West Coast of the South Island. Most of the people in this area are farmers, dairy and beef. There are beautiful rivers and lakes where people can go swimming, rafting and kayaking. There are tree left, right and center, native and pine. There are many bush tracks which people use to run, walk and bike. Everyone is very sociable, up for a chat anytime. There are some cities as well like Christchurch, Auckland and NZ's capital Wellington. In winter there are some awesome ski fields around, especially down south. NZ was beautiful and there was nowhere in the world anywhere like it.

Week 1 Day 5 Activity 2
On your blog, write a letter to your best friend or a family member telling them about your trip to the tundra. To earn full points your letter must have a greeting (eg. Dear…) followed by 5 – 6 sentences of information about what your experience.

Hey Caitlyn 

How are you? What have you been up to lately? I have just been to the tundra and it is cold. I went in the summer and it was just a bit warmer than our winter. I had a tour around the place and the scenery was incredible. When looking out of a window you can see the  large mountains off in the distance, it is beautiful.

I wish you could be with me right now, you would love it.
