I have been to a few places around the world on holiday, but my favourite place was definitely Egypt. Not because of the country itself, which is full of culture and brilliant sights, but because I got to swim with dolphins while I was there! I had half an hour with a two-year-old dolphin called Sasha. He was adorable! His keepers said he had taken a shine to me as he kept nudging me to stroke his tummy.

7 things you might not know about dolphins

I have been fascinated by bottlenose dolphins since I was in the womb. Well, I can’t actually remember that far back so I don’t really have any idea what I was thinking about or doing, if I’m completely honest. I was probably too busy doing the backstroke or playing football, if what my mum told me was true!
