In September our class flew to Brighton in England. We lived in host families, went to school and explored Brighton and its surroundings.
We saw a lot in Brighton, like for example the Royal Pavilion. It is remarkable for its exotic oriental appearance both inside and out. Sadly, we were not allowed to take pictures inside. The shopping streets and small shops were inviting and offered a vast range of goods. Brighton Pier was fun and the beach amazing. Unfortunately it was too cold to swim. There are some food and drink outlets on the pier where you can appease your hunger or you can take a fun ride on a rollercoaster.
We also went to the „Seven Sisters“, a series of chalk cliffs by the English Channel. We enjoyed this trip although it was very exhausting as we had to walk a lot. It was a really nice experience.
We were not only in Brighton, but also went to London twice. London is much bigger than Vienna and more stressful. You can do and see so many things there. Among other sights we saw “Buckingham Palace”,” Trafalgar Square”, “Changing of the Guard” and “Big Ben”. Our nice boat tour on the river Thames was relaxing after a long, strenuous walk. Some of us had fun visiting the London Dungeon while the other girls were shopping in Oxford Street. This is a perfect place for shopaholics, accumulating uncountable shops. Harrods is also nice but more expensive.
London is very beautiful and we think everybody has to see London at least once in his life. It was a nice experience for all of us and we would like to go to England again.
