Isn’t it just fun to sit in a bus for hours to go to a Resort/Camp where you can’t contact your family because they don’t trust you with their Nokia Way Too Old?
Alright. Sarcasm aside, Excursions are horrifically fun. As I joked to a few friends, you know you’re in for a good excursion when on the first night you go to Flipout. As I also joked, “Some kids are really gonna-( Warning: Lame Joke ahead ) Flipout about it!” And to get no laughs. That’s how you know you’re (not) funny. :)
They’re “Edutainment” Which is what my father calls educational entertainment. Because it’s not every-day you get to see a fully grown man dancing around like a totally-sane Lyrebird. And I’m not being a Lyre about it! Also, snake-skin on Minnamurra. Doesn’t rhyme, but snake-skin is snakey. Speaking of Edutainment, Mrs Hounsell, you didn’t put on that Gardening documentary! While I’m not procrastinating, because Tauruses are good at that, Nan Tien Temple was more than Eastern-themed, because it was the only place that I was bothered to take photos because my parents want an Eastern-themed garden. Sidenote: Why couldn’t we climb that Pagoda? Looks fun!
The experience is, well, phenomenal. Watching the stars and constellations swirl and dance around you, planets, er, planet-ing, just.. Wow! Minnamurra was fun, not JUST because of the nature, and driving past Jamberoo, but the rope bridges, feeling the different leaves, with birds singing around you. It’s something you can’t experience at home. ( Just pretend the Eurobodalla Botanic Garden tracks don’t exist, but if you don’t want to, then there’s no rope bridges there, as far as I’m concerned. ) One last thing before the next reason, flying around in a plane simulation at a museum basically dedicated to planes is entertaining, even if it’s nothing else.
A good excuse to watch movies. I mean, come on! I’m sure you enjoyed watching a movie or 4 on the Excursion! And it’s a great excuse to watch movies, because “Mum, it’s suuuchhh a loooong driveeee!” See? Golden Excuse. Even if you’re driving to Kmart to find a lego set for your siblings because they broke their 35th one. For the fifth time. Plus, isn’t it cool to see movies you’ve never seen before? To watch pictures and/or drawings play on your TV Screen? Which, depending on where you are on the bus, is the giant one, or a teeny-tiny one, which you can’t see because someone’s standing up? Fun, right? ( Any Sarcasm probably intended )
Writing about them afterwards
Could just be me, but I just love writing about the excursion after it’s happened because writing about it beforehand is kinda useless. Also, it’s a good excuse for me to use my ridiculously long words, like : Reads through whole thing : Edutainment and Phenomenal. Actually, those aren’t very long. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is a bit better! :) ( And, no, I didn’t copy and paste that word. Boredom makes you do weird stuff. )
So, I’ve just finished my reasons for more excursions. What’s your opinion? How could I have done it better? I’d love to hear.
Anyways, see you later!
