Our trip to Brighton – 2 FS

We started our trip to Brighton on the 27th of February very early in the morning. The first stop was Vienna Airport. After some tiny problems at the security check (One of us had a pepper spray with her and one student had forgotten to take out her scissors from her pencil case) we could finally get on the plane to London Gatwick. Some of us were very nervous, because they had never flown before. When we arrived at London Gatwick it was raining, but luckily our guide Tatiana was already expecting us and we took a little bus to Brighton. Tatiana showed us around a bit and then we went to our language school, where we got some information about our host families and the lessons. Then some of us were picked up by their host parents and some went to their families by taxi. The families were extremely kind.

The next days we had lessons in the mornings and on two days also in the afternoon. We got lunch vouchers, so in our breaks we could go to different cafés and order sandwiches, toasts or wraps. After school we usually did different activities: We saw a greyhound race, went bowling, visited the Sea Life Centre, enjoyed the sunny weather at the Seven Sisters and did a lot of shopping.

On Saturday we went to London. It is a really interesting, but also very busy city. We saw Buckingham Palace, the Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben), St James’s Park, Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and many other famous sights. We also went on a River Thames cruise tour.  After that some of us went to Ripley´s, while the others had free time. Our final stop was the Hard Rock Cafe, where most of us bought some shirts and hoodies.

On Sunday we started our way back home. It was very exhausting, because our flight was delayed two hours. At 2 am we finally arrived in Graz.

In our opinion, it was a great trip. Sometimes it was really exhausting and sometimes the lessons were a bit boring, but altogether it was a fantastic experience. We want to go to Brighton again!
