Summer Learning Journey: Week 1 Day 1 Activity 1 - Choosing a destination

Activity 1
After you have read the quick facts about each place you must choose ONE country that you would like to ‘visit.’ On your blog post the name of the country and tell us why you have chosen to visit it. Please give, at least, two reasons for choosing the country.

I will choose Germany because:

  • They were involved in world war 1
  • Also there are a lot of people in Germany, you can always meet new people


  1. Hi Saveu, I liked how you picked your Country and the reason why you picked it. Great Ideas! Keep it up!

  2. Hi saveu, I like the country you choice, also liked the reasons why you choice the country! Keep it up!

  3. Hey Saveu
    I am a student from Panmure Bridge school and it's awesome to see you taking part in the summer learning journey. Keep up the awesome work!

  4. Hi Saveu and welcome to the Summer Learning Journey programme. We are thrilled to have you joining us again this holiday.

    I love that you've chosen to visit Germany. It is such a fascinating country with a very rich history, amazing buildings and delicious pastries. One of my closest friends is German and she used to live here in Auckland. When she was living in New Zealand she used to go to a special German bakery on the week-ends that is located on the North Shore of Auckland. She would buy the most amazing pastries and breads and then share them with us. Yummm!!!

    I think that you will love learning about Germany, its people and its delicious food.

    I am really excited to share this journey with you.

    See you online this summer!

    Rachel :)

  5. Kia ora Saveu,

    Welcome to the Summer Learning Journey! I just had a quick scroll through some of your other blogs, and it looks like you're finished? Congratulations, that is AWESOME! You should be very proud of yourself.

    My name is Dan and I'm working alongside Rachel and Mark. I'm lucky enough to be able to read your blogs and I'll be leaving comments as I go. If you want to reply to my comments then please do! I'd love to know what you think, or if you have any questions, feel free to ask away.

    I'll be playing a bit of catch up on your blogs Saveu, commenting as I go and checking out your learning journey. I think Germany is a great place to visit. It is an incredibly beautiful country, with a very long, interesting history. Not to mention the amazing food they have in Germany... Yum! What's your favourite food?

    I think travelling somewhere new to meet new people is a great reason to travel. Germany have actually been taking in tens of thousands of refugees in the last year or two, so visiting there will be a such a great multicultural experience. Sounds like it will be fun!

    I'm looking forward to following your progress through this learning journey. If you have any questions along the way then feel free to ask away.


    1. Hi Dan, Thanks for commenting. I really don't know whats my favourite food, I really have heaps.

    2. Hi Saveu,
      Thanks for replying so quickly! I completely understand, I have so many favourite foods too... I couldn't possibly decide on one. Keep up the awesome work :-)
