I recently left my home off the coast of New Zealand and have been swimming for miles. I'm so excited to be starting a new adventure and to have the chance to visit so many wonderful places around the world. After a long swim I finally reached my first destination, but it took me a while to decide which route to take. I couldn't decide if I wanted to go west through the Indian Ocean and around South Africa into the Atlantic or swim east across the Pacific and around the tip of South America. I went with the former, because seas around the latter can be rough.
Although we are in the 21st century, I see a lot of historical remnants. The rich history has really taught me a lot. I visited this wonderful tower built in 1889. It was built for some sort of exhibition, but now it is a huge tourist attraction. There were also a lot of churches. Do you know what a flying buttress is? Between those and these weird creatures, they don't look like the churches where I come from.
I also got to visit some wonderful museums, but the arts aren’t really my thing. I was more excited to see Mickey. There was also a huge river that ran through the city. I wonder if they would let me swim down it, or would the Gendarmerie frown up that... hmmmm.
Hope you enjoyed hearing about my first stop. Can't wait to get to my next location!
