Day 2 - Activity 2

Activity 2: As an island nation, New Zealand is completely surrounded by water. It is the perfect place for people who like to swim or to sail! While in Dargaville, recovering from your busy day of sightseeing, you notice a number sailboats going by. One of the boats is manned by a young German girl named Laura Dekker. At the age of fourteen she sailed around the world the entire world by herself. You can watch a short video clip about her adventures here: Laura Dekker sailing trip.   

Let’s imagine that you had the chance to interview Laura while in Dargaville. On your blog post five questions that you would ask her.

  1. What did you eat?
  2.  Why did you pick to sail by yourself?
  3. Did you ever regret it?
  4.  At some point did you miss your family?
  5. Why did you want to do this journey?


  1. Hello Freeman, I like how you have added to your blog post a link of Laura's sailing trip. I also like how you have changed your question to a different colour. I find that easier to read. Keep it up.

  2. Hi Freeman
    I really like the question 'What did you eat?' because it's not like she could take fresh bread or something like fruit because it would go rotten. Keep up the amazing work.

  3. Kia Ora Freeman, You have some really awesome questions to answer Laura Dekker. I very like question 4. I like how you have added the link of Laura's sailing trip. Keep up the stunning work!

  4. Hi Freeman. I think the questions you have asked are great. I think you should be a bit more specific with your first question. The question I would like to ask the most from your list is probably the fourth one. Keep up the amazing work.

  5. Malo Freeman!

    These are some really thoughtful questions! You have thought a little bit outside of the box and asked a few personal questions that will provoke a good answer!

    Well done, Freeman.
