On 2nd of October at 15:10 the students of 1st and 2nd of Batxillerat of IES Seròs and the teachers Oscar Izcara and Jordi Vilanova took off from BCN Airport heading for London – Gatwich Airport. We landed in London at 5 o’clock. At 9 p.m we met our host families with whom we were going to spend the following 7 days. During time we could see a lot of things and go to many different places, such as Madame Tussaud's, The British Museum, The Natural History Museum, The Big Ben, The London Eye, The Buckingham Palace, Monument, St Paul’s Cathedral and St. James Park among others.
We could also see the two most important bridges in London located over the River Thames. We went to Harrods and Camden Market, too. We took a lot of trains and tubes. While we were waiting on the tube platforms, we learnt a sentence that we will never forget, this was “Mind the Gap”!
At night, after dinner, we talked with our families and they told us about the British traditions and typical food in England. We also had the chance to tell them about our customs in Catalonia. Actually, they are very different from us.
Thanks to this trip, we could improve our English, go sightseeing, learn many things and have more confidence with teachers.
This trip was an incredible experience for us, and we will never forget the good moments that we lived.
