Day 14- Flight Canceled

So today was a not so good day. We got up at five this morning to head down to the airport so that we can get to Fiji. Well we find out that morning that our flight has been canceled due to the ash cloud. We were at the airport all morning trying to figure out how we were going to get to Fiji. After we had been at the airport all morning, we find out that the soonest we could get to Fiji was Sunday, so we had to spend two more nights in Christchurch, and we now only had a day and a half left for Fiji. So we all weren't to happy about that, but we tried to stay positive. We didn't have anything planned for the rest of the day, so we all went to Antartic World. That was exciting, we all wanted to go there anyways. They had a lot of cool things inside Antartic World. There was this 4D movie about Antartica, it had a lot of cool things that they showed. Then we went down to this room that showed us what a real blizzard might be like in Antartica. It was freezing! I don't think I could ever survive in Antartica for real. Then we went up to see the penguins. They were so cute! I wanted to take one home with me. There was one without a foot that was putting on a show for us, he was very entertaining. Then we got to go on this ride that showed us what it would be like to drive in Antartica. It was crazy! It took us up and down on all of these hills, and it swung us side to side. It was a lot of fun, we were laughing the whole time on it. That was our last thing to do at Antartic World, so once we were done, we went on back to our hotel. I'm still sad that we weren't able to make it to Fiji today, but Antartic World was a lot of fun, and I'm glad I got to go :)
