10 letters got written to New Zealand, to:
Lianne (Tauranga), Beryl (Manurewa), Savannah (Hamilton), Mr Quate's class at Tamatea Intermediate School (Napier), Jessica (Wellington), Jasmine (North Canterbury), Matthew (Auckland), Toby (Auckland), Di (Auckland) and Karen (New Plymouth).
Over the course of the day, we read about the WOMAD Festival, we found out how Mauao / Mount Manganui got its name, found out about countless museums and beautiful landscapes, and Toby asked about school, toys and recipes.
13 letters got written to Australia, to:
Gisele (Ashfield), Emily (Fairy Meadow), Kirsty (Hobart), Nina (Victoria), Lily (Lilydale), Mrs Salter and Kingergarten Green (Summer Hill), Ariana (Sydney), Alex (Derby), Logan and Emerald (Cessnock), Laura (Lithgow), Angel (Morgan), Bigyan (Wollongong), Anita (Buderim).
In Australia, Toby loved finding out more about the Puffing Billy Railway, fell in love with the Jenolan Caves, and tried to work out how he could get to Sculpture at Scenic World.
Since it's impossible to write 23 letters without breaks, we asked on Toby's Facebook Page to find authentic recipes to sustain us. We made a pavlova and Anzac biscuits (but we did eat some healthy food, too).
