Our trip to Great Britain

At the end of September we went on a language trip to England. Every year it is organised for students of the 7th classes. There were 43 of us this year.
Departure was set up for 10.30pm, but despite of that late hour we were all excited and in a good mood. We spent 2 days on the bus. We stopped in Brugge for a short visit, slept one night in a hotel in France and on Monday evening we arrived in Barnstaple. Our future English parents were already waiting for us near the school.
When we all arrived in our new homes, we had the first English dinner and went to bed. Next morning we went to school, as we do in Prague, but our lessons started at 9 o´clock instead of 8. After school we went on the first trip which was a town tour of Barnstaple. Our guide was very charismatic and there was no chance to get lost with this man. If anyone got lost, his loud expression „Oh, yey! Oh, yey!“ would get him out of the wrong way immediately.
We went on trips every day after school.Except Sunday which was a family day and we spent it with our host mothers and fathers. Our trips were: Atlantic coast – Ilfracombe and Woolacombe, Lynton and Lynmouth, Plymouth, Westward Ho!, Tintagel and Milky Way.
On the way to Prague we stopped in London where we visited the Tower of London and walked round the city centre where we saw the most famous buildings and places of the British capital.
We all liked the trip and we hope that we will go back to England again one day.
