So...about London then xD At first I have to say that it was a great trip although the accomodation was not the best which does not really matter because I have hardly been in my room... but it was great because it was great fun and because there were some nice people I had to do... and still have to do with. The trip took place from the 1st to the 3rd of December and was organised by our organisation. All exchange students who have been in England in this time have been in London... do not let me lie but I think we were at about 70... just from Gloucester there were about 11...with me... ( I never thought that we are so many in Gloucester)... .
We had no school on the friday because our organisation wrote a letter to our school so that we got the day off and could have spent it in London. We met at about quarter to eight on the bus stop in town and took the National Express to London who took about three hours. We had to wait a while because there were a missunderstanding... but never mind... yeah... and after that we took the cap yeahhhhh xD to our accomodation and gave Sebastian all our stuff because we wanted to take a look around and could not put it in the luggage room because it was already full of bags... and he did not want to take a look around and was happy to sit with his cards in the breakfast-room and that is why we gave him everything and went outside... we went to McDonals who was around the corner, at some stuff and then went back to the hostel because we only have had about half an hour because we should meet back in the breakfast-room at about two.
When we came back we got our "keys" and got another half an hour because some exchange students or... their trains or whatever were delay so that we had to wait until they told us about the rest of the day. We went to our rooms and just took a look around in the hotel and met back again at about half two. Gosh... it was so hilarious when we tried to find our room because we all had the wrond room number in our mind so that the door did not want to open... so what did we do?? We are stupid girls... so one began to look from the end of the corridor and two of us from the beginning of the corridor where our room ist... and where has it been? The one next to the room we thought it would be loool xD So we spent about ten minutes to search for our room hahaaaa xD It was hilarious xD After we came back to the breakfast-room, half an hour ago, they gave us some money and said that if we would like to go to Madame Taussauds we should be downstairs at three and if not we could do whatever we would like to do and if we would like to come with them to Covent Garden we should meet them at about seven downstairs. We had no special rules besides of that we should be back in the hostel at about eleven and that we should go at least in a group of two. That was pretty good
So...at first we were not so sure but because we got some money from them and because I have never been in London nor seen Madama Taussauds we went there..although it costs a lot of money... but hey it is just one time, so never mind. xD hehe
looool...yeah...it was pretty cool. Because we did not have so much time we went straight downstairs and waited for all the other people to come who wanted to go to Madame Taussauds. So...we went to the train station and then to Madame Taussauds. I hardly went the whole time with Andy who I know from the seminar and because we had not seen each other for such a long time... so there were a lot to talk about. No...it was quiet funny. In the end, in Madama Taussauds I went with Maria and Sandra. It is really amazing to see that some celebrities or just many of the people in Madama Tassauds look so real... it was really really fascinating... yes, I mean of course... there have also been some who did not look really real but some wow... donno what to say really... they just looked so real. After about half of it we sat down in a cafe because we just walked the whole time. That was good hehe. Gosh... it was so hilarious when Maria saw Wayne Rooney... I thought or it just looked like her world is wonderful again and like she is the happiest person in the whole world hahaaa xD Gorgeous...so gorgeous ...oh gosh... you also should have seen this strange aileen-film in the end and this weirdo... I just thought...what is going wrong??!! hahaaaa xD He was quiet scary and I still feel sorry for this woman xD looool....after we finished it we went back to the hostel and because it was at about seven we just waited downstairs and went with the others to Covent Garden.
You can really still that we used every opportunity on the weekend to do sightseeing-trip. But hey... when you have the opportunity to do that and do not have to pay for everything..then hey... go go go xD loool :D No...really it was great So...we went with them to Covent Garden at about seven o'clock. It is a big place with lots of restaurants... so perfect for our dinner
I went with Sandra, Sebastian, Kejr and Maria to an italian restaurant, right on this big place.... loool...we have had a lot of fun but I really do think that Kejr thought that we are just crazy loool...it was so funny because Maria and I sent us text messages although we were sitting next to each other- yes... we are a bit weird looool xD Never mind No...I really do not know why we did it, but it was so funny looool No..the food was very good...but gosh... it was so expensive and loool... Sebastian and we all I have to say... did not want to pay the whole prize in the end... I mean we did pay everything we ate... but you also have to give them about 10 or 15 %...whatever it was...money extra and it would have been about six pounds ...donno... I think we still payed at about five... the waitress did not look very happy loool... it was really expensive... but I have to say that I did not really care about money on this weekend because we got 50 Pounds from our organisation and yeah... it was the first time I went to London and I just wanted to have fun... I mean I did not go shopping or something like that and I did not be like I have so much money and just did nothing with it... I just wanted to see all this stuff, do you know what I mean?
After we ate something we just went around and in the end we stopped in Tescos looool... Sebastian was very happy when he saw it loool xD It was like the love of his life He just wanted to have his bread and Nutella hehe xD Like every time... so...can you live without it Sebastian??? xD I am not so sure about it No...it was a really good evening... we did have so much fun
After we arrived in the hostel we were just sitting with the others in the breakfast-room, played cards and talked. I also was very tired on this evening but I still think that we went to bed at about twelve o'clock loool xD But there were so much people in the room and it was great fun. When I went to bed I felt like on the sea... Maria, Astrid and Sandra know what I mean :D
We got up at about eigth o'clock on saturday. Gosh...this breakfast was hilarious... we got two toasts and strawberry-jam, butter, orange juice which was more like water, tea and coffe...really strange and not something I would say is breakfast... I mean it is but donno... so...some people went outside to ate something loool xD We did not
On friday evening they told us that they will go to the Buckingham Palace on saturday and that who would like to come with them should be downstairs at ten o'clock. So...we went downstairs at ten and because we were so many people we should have devided us into two groups. One group went with Cathrin and the other one with Vince. We went to the Buckingham Palace. We wanted to see the change of the guards but there wasn't one on this day...unfortunately and I do not know why when I am serious. xD loool...because there were no changing of the guards we went to Westminster and because we have been so early we had one hour to do whatever we want. I went with Maria around Westminster. We went to the Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, on the bridge to see the London Eye and the Themse and after that we went to the parc, next to the Housed of Parliament to take a rest looool xD It was such a nice weather.... we have been really lucky.
After this one hour we met back with the other ones and went down to the Themse were we met the other group. We took the boad then and drove a bit around. Gosh... this guy... at first he did ask us whether he should tell something about some buildings but he also said that he would not speak the whole time... because some people said yes he spoke the whole time... without a comma nor a full stop...gosh... I thought... what is going on with this guy... he even spoke about buildings nobody is interested in and it was not even that he spoke normal...it sounded more like he spoke very loudly loool xD So...that was the reason why Andy... wo sat next to me in the boad and I began to talk after about ten minutes loool xD
After we arrived on the other side we went to the London Dungeon. loool..this was quiet funny and I also think that it was good but I also think that it took by far too long. I mean...I think it was about two hours we walked thru London Dungeon and we sat about two times for about two minutes. The first time was in a salon of a barbar... loool...gosh was it funny haha... Andy was a bit shocked because there was something on his neck after he sat down and the voice began to tell the history about the barbar who did not only cut the hair of his customers... hahaaa xD And the second time we sat was in a boad and it was really dark, too... that was a time where I was shocked because there was an huge blow of air on my neck...gosh... I was so shocked because I did not see anything because everything was dark... and because I was so shocked I nearly sprung on Andy's lad hahaaaa xD
After we went out of London Dungeon I went with Maria and Andy to China Town where we sat down to eat something. Gosh... it was funny xD hehe... we went there because Andy went there the day before and because you can eat as much as you like for only 4 Pound 90... that was good... but you also got plastic plates and stuff like that haha... but I mean... never mind until the food is good... and it was... I only did eat too much sweet and sour soße hahaaaa... I felt a bit sick after that... but anyway... it was good xD
After that we wanted to go to Covent Garden but because we took the wrong direction we found ourself in Piccadilly again... we thought about going to the cinema...but it was to expensive and on the other hand there was no film anyway... then we thought about going bowling...but Maria did not want to spend so much money... so we went outside again and then wanted to go by train... we had to nerve Maria a little bit until she went with us... she just wanted to sit and drink something and nobody of us did know where a cafe would be around Piccadilly but we knew that there are some in Covent Garden. In the end everything was full and we just went to Tescos and bought something to drink and then went to the big place again, sat down and talked about one and an half hour...or should I better say that Andy and I talked the whole time... do not really know why Maria did not talked to us but what did she say in the went? She found the mini-break so interesting... alright loool xD
After a time it began to be cold and Maria did not want so stay longer so we decided to go back to the hostel. After we arrived there and went to the breakfast-room I became so tired... Andy asked me after some minutes (it was about ninish) if I would like to go outside again... so we both went to Starbucks because there was nothing special going on in the hostel. This was really funny and we came a bit too late because we did not really look at the time and in the end we could not find the way again haha... we just thought that we would have been gone straight on this road the whole time.. but in the end it did not seem that we have... loool...so we took the train in the end hahaaa... gosh... I was so red in my face because I ran up the whole stairs and all this stuff hahaaa... I do not say what Maria thought... I really do not know where she is with her thoughts hahaaa xD Never mind
After we came back we went back to the breakfast-room where a lot of the others were. They played cards... Murat tried...and did throw some papers in our shirts the whole time... however... I just think that he was a little bit bored loool... and stuff like that...It was really funny and I think we went to bed at about twoish this night loool...so I was a bit tired on the next morning
We got up at about ten on sunday then, packed our stuff, went to the breakfast room for our breakfast and brought our stuff into the luggage-room. After we went downstairs they told us three opportunities what we can do today and also that we have to organise the rest of the day by ourself...so how we will come back and stuff like that. I went with Ulli and some other guys to the Hyde Parc and to Camden Market in the end. Gosh...it was so funny with Urs and Andy the whole time...when we stood and went to the Hyde Parc. When we arrived on Camden Marked we said goodbye and went different ways because there is so much to see. We went to McDonals for example at first (yeah, I know... much to see loool)... but Maria and Sandra wanted to sit down and eat something and I had to go with them because I had to go home with them and we were not allowed to go by train alone... hey... after McDonalds we went around Camden Market and about oneish we went back to the hostel and went to an italian cafe around the corner were we spent the last hour and met Astrid and Sebastian at three in the hostel and got our stuff. Gosh...some of the people who should have gone back with us were just so confused or donno...because we phoned two of them at about half and they were still in another Starbucks... and two of them we met on the bus stop although we sat we would all meet back in the hostel at about three. Hm... the end was that three of them did not get the bus... but now our problem loool..I was just so glad that Astrid had our tickets xD
Yeah...that was our trip to London thou... I have to say that I found it really good besides of the ending... it would have been so good when they would have been a good ending that we would have meet back in the hotel at a certain time...but yeah... that is like it is... but anyway... I think the persons you like you still stay in contact with... but the atmosphere was pretty good and there have been some really nice people.
