TRIP TO STRASBOURG
On Tuesday, 13th September 2016, about 30 pupils from our school went to Strasbourg. We came to the parking lot next to the school at 5 a.m. There was already a bus waiting for us. We were driving all day.
We also had some breaks so we could go to the toilet or eat our snacks.
We came to Strasbourg at 6 p.m. Then we went to our rooms and got ready for dinner. We had dinner in a restaurant next to the hotel. There was so much food and it was very good. After dinner, at about 10 p.m., we had to be in our rooms. We fell asleep soon becouse we were really tired.
The next day we woke up at 7.30 a.m. We had breakfast in the hotel and then we took our seats in the bus and went to the EU parliament. The guide who drove with us told us some interesting facts about the city.
We came to the parliament at 10 a.m.
The guards cheked our luggage and then we could enter.
A woman accompanied us to the room where we had a short lecture about the parliament.
After that we went to the hall where members held a session. Wegot headphones so we could listen to them in Slovenian. There were also about 40 other languages we could listen to. It was really cool.
Then we had lunch in the parliament. Everything was delicious but all of us liked the dessert the most.
After lunch we went back to the bus and we drove to the city centre. Then we had a guided city tour. We saw the Notre-Dame Cathedral, a bridge which moved aside when the tourist boat came and some interesting buildings.
We also had some spare time so we could go to Starbucks or McDonald’s.
We returned to the hotel at about 8.30 p.m. Then we played cards or had fun some other way. We had to be in our rooms at 10 p.m. again, but this time we didn’t fall asleep soon. We were talking till midnight or even later. Some of us didn’t even go to sleep because they wanted to sleep in the bus.
The next day we had to wake up earlier. We had breakfast at 6.30 a.m. because at 7.15 we already left the hotel. The ride back wasn’t so tiresome. We played games, listened to the music and watched films. The rain was forecast but it didn’t rain.
We came back to Ljubljana at 7.30 p.m. Our parents were already waiting for us and we went home. I really liked the trip. It was interesting and informative. I think Strasbourg is a very big and beautiful city.
