Where I went

  • Go To

I went to Fota with my family. My sister, who is seven, and my baby brother who is two, all went in the car with my mum and dad. The journey took nearly three hours. We stayed in a hotel nearby.

What we did

We went to Fota Island very early on the Saturday morning. We got a great surprise when we saw the animals roaming freely around the grass. We stood next to kangaroos, llamas and lemurs.

We were not allowed to feed the animals so we hid our snacks as I thought it would be cruel to let them see us eating.

What I liked

I really loved the wildlife park. There were lots of things to do while we were there. We were able to have our portraits done by art students.

After we finished in Fota, we went on a trip across to Cobh by car ferry. We were lucky that it never rained the whole weekend.

Would I go back?

Yes, I'd love to. Next time I would like to bring my friends. Thank you for reading my story.
