You know that feeling when you wake up in a new country and everything just feels exciting? Well that’s how we felt today! We woke up bright and early in the wonderful Shangri-La hotel which would be our home for the next few nights. A good night’s sleep meant we felt refreshed from yesterday’s travelling and ready for our first full day.

For a hearty breakfast in the hotel there were eggs, baked beans, chicken soup and fruit. From the bakery-side, there was an assortment of breads and even 2 types of chocolate fountains – white and milk chocolate! Now that’s what I call a great start to the day!!

We had little activity passports for each day which give you a present once you’ve completed five activities. Today’s task was fish feeding so that’s what we did first.

Then we spent 2 hours swimming in a fantastic pool area and then went to McDonalds for lunch.

Movie night was also an activity on the passport and I couldn’t believe it – a movie cinema-like room in the hotel was set up and so off we went for the 6pm showing. How cool is it to go to the movies in your own hotel? We saw a movie called Wonderland and there was popcorn, sweets, marshmallows and water – could it get any better??

After an epic day, we all settled down and went to bed. I hope every day is full of fun like today.

Soha signing off!
