My Holiday(In a Truck)

My ears were feeling a bit def after the speakers in the truck were blasting. The heat was to hot to bear then I finally figured to roll down the window. As my hearing slowly faded,I thought why is it so loud on my side so then I balanced the radio because it was all on the left, then my ears weren't feeling so sore.

On the way down from Auckland I5 stared out the window at all the traffic. It was miles long and nearly all the cars had all black and the french flag’s on them, there were people waving their teams colours out the window. The road trip so far was pretty cool.

As we progress towards Taupo I started to get hungry, so then I tell the driver A.K.A my dad to pull over. We had stopped in a small town called putaruru.The smell of fish n chips filled my nose I immediately pointed to the fish n chip special that was hanging from the wall. “and a burger” I said as my siliver was about to wash the floor. I was hungry as and couldn't even wait. My eyes were watching every single order that the lady was giving people,then after a while we heard “2 hamburgers and a special 7” I rushed to the counter and collected our feed.

Jumping back into the truck I unravel the package and the smell wafted freely through the rig. Within ten minutes I demolished the burger scoffed down the fritters and chips, after another ten minutes I was stuffed and every little bump on the road was agonizing for my stomach. It was like every bump in the road matched the rhythm of the song.

My stomach started to calm down and then I could enjoy the ride. Before I knew it we were 10km away from Taupo. I looked around at all the trees and bush it was like a Forest, I thought to myself “gangster this is mean as” coming from Auckland I'm used to being around buildings but out here its all tree. We reached our Pitt stop in Taupo. What’s this place i asked my dad, “eah where in stag park” he replied showing off. Coz he’s already been here heaps of times in the past.

I jumped out of the truck (Freightliner Argosy) and wondered straight into the little diner restaurant and slided $1.00 into the arcade machine. After losing in a circuit race i hopped off and kicked the game. After a little while my dads other truck driver arrived and they swapped trailers. We were loaded up and ready to go,climbing back into the truck I waited for my dad. He started up the engine and we drove off through the park. Glaring out the window I spotted this big rich Hilton motel with colourful lights touching the outside probably inside to.

Our next destination was to be back in Auckland at a frozen and chilled company called Provida Manukau. I don't even know if we went there because i was fast asleep in the back. “Oi get up” a screaming voice yells at me. I got up and stretched,looked around and oh, we’re back home.
