On the 27th
August, we (class 9c), our teachers Mrs. Röver and
Mrs. Walbrodt, Mr. Schröder and the two girls from
the 12th form Franziska Loos and Friederike Pauss
met in front of the THG to start the 'legendary'
class-trip to London.
That is the name of the small town, where we stayed
with host families for the whole week. Before arriving
there we had to travel about 12 hours and that was
a bit strenuous of course, but we had a lot of fun
on the bus and a great view at the famous 'White
Cliffs' of Dover from the ferry.
In the evening we finally arrived in Morden and
all those, who were tired before, were wide awake
at once, because everyone was very curios of the
host families in which we stayed with two or three
Sometimes there were a few funny misunderstandings
and two girls didn't like the house of their hosts
much, but all in all everyone was very satisfied.
our first day in London, we went by tube in groups
of five or six people who gave themselves names
like 'Powerpuff girls' or 'Mausis' to Waterloo Station
and saw the first great and famous sights, like
the big London Eye, a bit of Westminster Abbey,
the beautiful Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
After such a great first impression, a few of us
felt a big lack of food in their stomachs, so we
stopped at one of the thousand McDonald's in London
to fill up our energy. When everyone was fit again,
we made a small boat- trip along the Thames past
the London Eye and Tower Bridge and finally to the
old Tower of London, where we saw the valuable Crown
This fantastic first day was finished with a service
in the beautiful St. Paul's Cathedral.
On the following days we did a treasure hunt through
London and saw the large Buckingham Palace, in which
the Queen lives and visited Madame Tussaud's, where
we saw all the famous people in the world (some
of the girls suppressed the fact that the Brad Pitt
they touched was just a wax- figure).
Then we spent a few hours at the big Camden Lock
Market, where you can buy nearly everything, saw
some guitars of famous stars in the Hard Rock Shop
and the great musical 'We Will Rock You' with the
music from Queen. Another point of our programme
was Greenwich, where we visited the Royal Observatory
and then we went back to London - to Covent Garden,
where we saw some funny attractions.
At the end
of this wonderful week in London, we travelled back
home early on Saturday morning with a lot of new
impressions on our mind.
