Young Person Preview: Silly Willy goes to Cape Town – Robbie Cheadle
Last week my family went on a holiday to Cape Town. We went on an aeroplane. I don’t really like flying, it makes me feel dizzy being up so high and my ears hurt when the aeroplane takes off. Mom doesn’t really like flying either. She doesn’t say so but she always sits up very straight when the aeroplane is taking off and landing and holds my hand really tight. Mom always gives my brother, Willy, and I a lollipop for the trip so that our ears won’t hurt. I don’t know if it helps that much but I like the lollipop and suck it anyway.
I was very excited about going to Cape Town. It was the first time my family was going to Cape Town when I was old enough to remember. I am eight years old now and a big boy. My brother is still a little baby boy of only three years old. Mom said that we went to Cape Town on holiday when I was a small baby, only eighteen months old, but I don’t remember that at all.
When we got to the airport it was very busy and there were long queues of people everywhere. Dad got two trolleys for all of our luggage and sat my
brother on top of one of the piles. Willy loves that and laughs and laughs when the trolley goes over any bumps.
