Dear Diary,

We made it to Papua New Guinea. We had to buy some food and water for our journey but we didn't have any money. We had to sell some of our things to pay for our supplies.

We set sail across the Pacific Ocean. And I cooked a special lobster dinner but it made Passepartout and Sophia very sick. I had to sail the yacht by myself. I was trying to find somewhere to land but there was a storm and I nearly hit the rocks. I really want to go home!


You can download the audio and transcript from our Unit 8 downloads page.
