Our trip to England 2009

From 19th September to 2nd October we were on the trip to England. It was interesting, beautiful and we had a lot of fun.
We travelled to England a long time. First, we travelled across Germany to Belgium where we stopped to look round a very beautiful city Brugge. Then we went to France to Dunkerque and there we slept one night. Early in the morning we sailed by ferry to Dover and we drove on to see Stonehenge. After Stonehenge we went on to meet host families who were waiting for us in Barnstaple. In Barnstaple we went to school every day. It wasn´t a real school building, it was a modern church, but we used it like school.
We visited loads of beautiful places. We had a family day, too. It was a day when kids went with their families to some places which they wanted to see. During our stay in England we also had a town tour, we saw the Atlantic coast, Exeter, Tintagel, Westward Ho!, Lynton and Lynmouth, we played games in the sports centre and went to a fun park Milky Way. It was the best!! There were lots of slides, rollercoasters, dodgem cars, a spooky castle and lots of other things. At Tintagel we saw King Arthur´s castle and a show about the story of King Arthur. We also saw the round table.
On the way back home we stopped in London. We visited the Tower of London, we saw Tower Bridge, Big Ben and many other London landmarks.
