Alex Goes Camping

Our young guest writer Alex de Leeuw returns to tell us all about how he spent his weekend in the sunshine. Alex is Dutch (and quite young) but don’t worry, translations have been provided.

Alex Goes Camping Tent
Dit weekend hebben wij gekampeerd!

This weekend we went camping!

Alex Goes Camping Tent Inside
Dit is mijn tent. Het is heel groot. Vind je het mooi?

This is my tent. It’s very big. Do you like it?

Alex Goes Camping Sunny
Het was heel warm…

It was very hot…

Alex Goes Camping sunscreen
…dus ik heb heel veel zonnebrandcreme op gedaan.

…so I put on lots of sunscreen.

Alex Goes Camping Reading
Toen heb ik in de zon gezeten en een boek gelezen…

Then I sat in the sun and read a book…

Alex Goes Camping Bike
…en gefiets. “Kijk! Geen handen!”

…and rode a bike. “Look! No hands!”

Alex Goes Camping Duck 1
Het was heel warm, dus ik heb lekker in het water gepoedelt.

It was very, very warm so I went for a paddle in the water.

Alex Goes Camping Duck 2
“Hhmmm… Ik hoop dat het water niet te koud is.”

“Hhmmm… I hope the water is not too cold.”

Alex Goes Camping Climb
“Maar één manier om er achter te komen.”

“Only one way to find out.”

Alex Goes Camping Relax
“Ahhh… Het is precies goed.”

“Ahhh… It is just right.”

Alex Goes Camping Dry
Na het zwemmen kreeg ik erg veel trek…

After my swim I was getting very hungry…

Alex Goes Camping BBQ
Dus zijn wij gaan barbequen. “Ta-da!”

So we started a barbeque. “Ta-da!”

Alex Goes Camping Cooking
Ik mocht zelfs wat grillen…

I was even allowed to do some cooking…

Alex Goes Camping Burnt
…maar ik denk dat ik meer moet oefenen. Deze worst is heel erg verbrand.

…but I think I need more practise. This sausage is very burnt.

Alex Goes Camping Sleeping
Aan het einde van de dag ga ik slapen in mijn tent. Het is cool om in een tent te slapen en ik had echt een leuke dag.

At the end of the day I went to sleep in my tent. It is really cool to sleep in a tent and I had a really fun day.
