Journey all around the world - level 1

Journey all around the world - level 1

17-10-2013 06:00

A woman is travelling around the world. She is 28 years old and she is from Great Britain.

She cannot use a car or a plane on her journey. She must ride a bike or walk. The woman also has a boat. She must move the boat with her body, too.

The woman's journey is 20,000 miles long. She is done with 11,000 miles already. Some parts are harder than others. Getting across the Pacific was not easy. The woman was 150 days at sea. When she was finished, she was really tired.

Difficult words: plane (flying machine), journey (way), boat (you are on a boat when you want to travel by water).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
