Winter Learning Journey - Laura Dekker Questions

For this task As an island nation, New Zealand is completely surrounded by water. It is the perfect place for people who like to swim or to sail! While in Dargaville, recovering from your busy day of sightseeing, you notice a number sailboats going by. One of the boats is manned by a young German girl named Laura Dekker. At the age of fourteen she sailed around the world the entire world by herself. You can watch a short video clip about her adventures here: Laura Dekker sailing trip.   

Let’s imagine that you had the chance to interview Laura while in Dargaville. On your blog post five questions that you would ask her.

1. What is your favourite outdoor activity
2. What is your favourite hobby
3. What is your favourite fruit
4. Do you like technology.
5. Who were you inspired by when you were young


  1. Hello Ofa
    Sailing around the world at the age of fourteen is truly a great feat. The questions you would ask her are brilliant. Just remember, whenever it's a question, don't forget the question mark (?). Keep up the amazing work Ofa!

  2. Hi Ofa. Your questions are good. It's really incredible for a fourteen year old girl to sail around the whole world, all by herself. Great blogpost. Keep on working hard.

  3. Hello Ofa, I really like your questions especially the last one. It is really amazing how a fourteen year old girl sailed around the world her self. You are doing an amazing job! Well done.

  4. Hi Ofa,

    These are great questions for Laura! I, too, would love to know a bit more about Laura's interests and hobbies. I wonder if she loves blogging as much as we do?
