A Day In A Life Of A New Zealand Soldier At The Boer War

Sounds of gunshots echoed around me as I woke up at four o’clock in the morning. “Neigh” the horses heard it too. We began our daily trek across the veldt, mostly on the back of a horse but also leading a horse by foot. We don’t wake up and have breakfast ,as there is little amounts and it has to be rationed out evenly.  

Not only do we have to worry about our allies and enemies ,but also the tough climates and the rough landscape of africa. My feet were frostbitten from the night as the climate dropped to -9 degrees. So most of the time I was riding my horse.

Conditions were hard no food which means no energy but we still had to walk for 30km a day I was exhausted . My day was over and i had a can of bully beef and army biscuits at the end of each day it is what i look forward to when i’m traveling

I fell asleep on the solid ground. With no cover besides my clothes I was starving and i had no energy .Goodnight

Me and my horse Major.

Enormous waves huge rocks and huge amounts of people can u guess what I'm talking about.
Piha - world famous in New Zealand for its huge waves, and guess what I went there. Not by myself of course I went with my uncle and my friends, Rocky,Wyatt and Uili.

We went to Piha on Sunday morning and it was awesome .While we were there we watched a dog dig up a hole and a gigantic wave came and smashed it, it was funny. There was one wave that was about 2 meters tall, the hooter went and we all ran up the beach. It just about pushed me over but I stood my ground as the wave went back out and it looked like I was surfing. So overall that was an awesome day.
