The adventure started from our school at 10.30 p.m. on Saturday night for 60 students and four teachers. From there we drove about 1000 kilometres through Germany, the Netherlands and France to Calais. We took the ferry to Dover from there. The ferry ride lasted 90 minutes for about 30 kilometres. We left the bus and enjoyed the crossing on or under deck.
Things were different as soon as we left the ferry since all vehicles were driving on the left. So we had to be very careful when crossing a road during our six-day-stay. The weather was brilliant all week. We had day trips to Brighton, Canterbury and Cambridge, where we learnt a lot from our tour guides and talked to many interesting people. We explored London on two days and visited Madame Tussauds and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, we enjoyed a flight with the London Eye and took lots of photos of Big Ben and the many other London sights we had only seen in our English textbooks so far. What a great week!
