London Calling

- Class 9b discovered the world-famous metropolis

Our big journey started on 20th April 2015 at 6.30 am. We met in front of our gym and waited for the tour bus. A thrill of anticipation was perceptible. We didn’t have to wait long until our bus arrived.

Finally we could start our adventure!

During the ride we listened to some music, chatted and watched a few really educational movies

(SpongeBob Schwammkopf, (T)Raumschiff Surprise, …).

 After a considerable number of pee breaks ;) and being stuck in a traffic jam, we finally arrived at Calais, France. There we wanted to go to England by ferry. The weather was fantastic and so we had a beautiful view over the English Channel and the beach of Calais. Then we put out to sea.

One and a half hour later we spotted the breathtaking cliff coast at Dover.

Now we could begin the final stage of our journey.

It was already dark outside when the bus stopped in front of our hotel. There wasn’t a lot going on that evening, everyone grabbed his suitcase and began to search for his room.

On the following day we all met at breakfast and set out for a collective sightseeing tour. The nice tour escort showed us the most known places in London and told us some inside information. We saw Westminster Abbey and listened to Big Ben and its fellows, plunged into Piccadilly Circus and walked to Buckingham Palace. There we watched the Changing of the Guard, which was really interesting. We also visited the Tower of London and afterwards we had spare time and everyone could go where he wanted to. Now it was time for us to explore London on our own.

Most of the girls went shopping (of course in Oxford Street :D) and the others searched for their favourite sights.  Tired, but absolutely delighted we all arrived at our hotel in the evening.

On Wednesday we visited Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre. We had a guided tour, sat inside the theatre and also watched a really special show about the clothes of this time. The presenter had a really funny British sense of humour and we all had to laugh pretty much.

In the evening we also had an exciting ‘Jack-the-Ripper-Tour’. We followed his tracks through the Whitechapel district, got involved into the ongoing speculations about his identity and also learned a lot about a different side of London.

Tuesday was our last day in London. At first we took a ride on the London Eye and enjoyed the great view.

Following this, we had a tour of Westminster Abbey and eventually we felt the consequence of the last days: Our feet started hurting really much. But London was worth it.

In the evening then we had to say goodbye to the big city and set off for home.

All in all we had a really good time there,the weather was very good (All jesting aside, it was almost too hot.),the people were just super friendly and we made great new experiences.

We are all really happy that we had the opportunity to go there and for most of us it probably will not have been the last time there.
