Piranhas at the National Sea Life Centre

What would you do? You’ve been trekking in the jungle for 12 hours. Much of the journey was on a small, open boat and the rest was on foot. You walked through rapids and fought your way through undergrowth. It was swelteringly hot and humid and you’re a sticky, sweaty mess. You arrive at your destination where you’ll be spending the next three days. You’ll be staying with a local tribe in hammocks slung between posts in a tin shack.

A trip to the National Sea Life Centre This seems like such a big milestone, the first time she’ll be going away on a coach. Taking her rucksack with her packed lunch and heading off for the whole day. I feel quite reassured that she’s going to somewhere that she knows so well. We might even go there ourselves before her trip, there’s so much going on I’d hate Lia to…
