It’s official! You’ve chosen your country and bought your ticket. Now it’s time to pack for the big adventure! Think about where you are going and what the weather is going to be like when you arrive next week.
Activity 1
Q.To find out more about the weather in your chosen country log onto the Accu Weather website []. Type the name of the capital city of your country into the search bar. It will tell you what the weather is going to be like in your country of choice. On your blog, provide a five day forecast for the weather in the capital city of your chosen country.

On the 27th of Dec it's sunny to a bit cloudy, and at night mainly clear.  On 28th of Dec it’s partly sunny, and at night it’s mainly clear.

Activity 2
Q.Before you start packing your suitcase you will want to create a list of everything that you will need to bring with you. Most airlines let you bring one big suitcase with you so you’ll have to think carefully about what you want to bring…
On your blog site, post a list of everything that you need to pack for your trip. Put a star (*) beside the 5 items that you think are the most important.

A. Thing I would take with me.
* Phone ( In case you need help)
* Clothes
*  Money (when you need to buy something)
* Map (In case you get lost)
* Mp3 player. (When you get bored and want to listen to music)
I’ll only take this with me because I would only go starving if someone is there I know or I go with someone.

When you get onto the airplane you will be asked to watch a short safety video that tells you how to stay safe when flying in a plane. Arguably, the best airline safety videos are produced by Air New Zealand.

A.Once you have finished watching the videos, go to your blog and list three things that you need to do to stay safe on an airplane.
  1. Make sure your seatbelt is on, but remember how to take it off.
  2. Stay Calm, Because if you Panic it would help you in the plane. Panicking in the Plane would make you worry too much and you won’t have a good fight.
  3. Check for a life jacket before taking off. It’s important that your life jacket is there, because you never what’s going to happen in a plane so prepare.

Activity 2

Activity 1
Q. Before you go overseas it will be important that you learn a bit about the capital city of your country. Hop online and find out about the capital city of your country. Use this information to complete the five sentences below:

Q.One of the most popular activities in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, is called ‘Bullfighting.’ It has been a part of Spanish culture for centuries. In bullfighting people called ‘toreros and ‘matadors’ fight with a live bull. The toreros do most of the fighting and, ultimately, capture the bull and tie it up. Once it has been caught, the matador joins the fight and kills the bull. Although most toreros and matadors are men, there are some women who also compete in the sport.
A.Not everyone supports bullfighting in Spain. In fact, about 30% of the population want it to be banned (stopped) completely. What do you think? On your blog tell us whether or not you think that bullfighting should be banned in Spain. Please provide, at least, two reasons to support your decision.
