• Hi all back in Australia! It’s a little stressful here but I’m enjoying it. Weird food? Nah. The food is not at all weird. Anyway, I’m having fun here! -Noah

• Hoi everyone~ I hope you are all well. In such a short time, we have seen so much. It’s so beautiful here; it doesn’t seem real. Even though everyone walks around in winter clothes, it’s pretty hot. Like, hotter than Australia hot. But the humidity makes the grass green so it’s nice. We got bitten by deer 🙂 – Shae and Hayley

• Hey everyone! We’ve been having a lot of fun so far and have taken loads of photos. We spent way too much money on these little figures and keychains called ‘Gacha’, but it was worth it and we regret nothing. Also, the fried shrimp is heavenly. Anyway, that’s all for now, see you soon! Don’t miss us too much. – Charlize & Nalia

• Hey all. We are all having such an amazing time. Little scary but a great experience. Today we were attacked by a lot of deer and we are lucky to be alive. Nah… they were soooooo cute. So yeah, we are all missing family back in Australia but we are having so much fun. – Baylee and Georgia

• Hi all, having soooo much fun, where playing a scavenger hunt sight seeing. We have officially become tourists, some people are taking photos of buildings. Never will we complain about them again. Got to go shopping yesterday and got bargains. Love to all back home. Lauren, Jasmine, Abbie and Oriana.

  13. Hi Sariah,
    Survivor Update: Steve was voted for on Monday when Monika sided with Brian but he was not sent home but became Dead Man Walking meaning he could not vote at the next 2 tribal councils. However he was finally voted off last night when he just missed out on immunity and Monika again sided with Brian, Shonee & Fenella. 😀
    Hope you are having a fantastic time. It is very quiet around home.
    Love Dad & Mum
