The busy city of London holds host to many football clubs, including the likes of Arsenal. Today I’ve travelled all the way down south to visit their very own stadium, The Emirates at Ashburton Grove. One of it’s unique features are the wall murals around the exterior of the stadium, showing a series of 32 Arsenal legends in a huddle wrapping their arms around the entire stadium. The stadium is the 3rd largest in England, with over 60,000 seats! The ground will also be one of the host venues for the Rugby World Cup in 2015.

I’m in Tenby which is a seaside town located on the south coast of Wales. The beach goes on forever and is full of soft golden sand which is perfect for building sandcastles. The water is really warm and really blue; you can even see some starfish laying on the seabed. Lots of boats set sail from the harbour and you can see people waving them off into the horizon.
Tenby used to host home to a great castle but unfortunately it went under attack and came crashing down. Now all that is left are the 5 Arches Gate, which actually make a pretty nice historical landmark.
I’ve travelled all the way to the East to deliver in the city of Cambridge. This historic city has lots of old Victorian buildings and a beautiful big river where people like to row boats. In the centre are some lovely markets where I’ve found lots of nice sweets to buy.
The University campus is really big and busy with lots and lots of clever people. Sir Isaac Newton studied at Cambridge University in 1661 and is a very important scientist whose discoveries are even very useful today.
The Botanic Gardens are filled with wildlife and plants from all over the world. It was fantastic to see all the bright flowers, big leaves, butterflies, birds and mammals all nestled within the garden and it’s greenhouses. I really enjoyed my trip to Cambridge and hopefully I’ll get to make some more deliveries there soon.
I recently had the opportunity to visit the amazing Chester Zoo. It took a long time to drive to Chester but when I got there it was worth it! At first I saw lions and tigers (luckily they were behind fences so they couldn’t come and get me) and then I spotted a zebra running through some trees!
Moving through the zoo I came to the seal show, where the trainers used balls and toys to make the seals do all sorts of tricks. The seals were really clever, but splashed a lot and I ended up getting quite wet.
After drying off and having a quick ice cream from the café I drove through the monkey cages. They really are cheeky! They kept jumping on the cars in front and then suddenly one landed on my back! I didn’t mind giving him a piggy-back, but eventually it was time for him to get off or else he’d of had to come home with me. The zookeeper took him down and fed him a banana, and I drove away safely to make sure not to run over his tail. My day out at the zoo was really fun. I can’t wait to go back again!
