What I like....chapter 1



Hello Everybody,

In this blog I am going to tell you , what I like the most. Can you guess? No? Then let me tell you. I just LOVE traveling ( specially to other countries) and meeting new people. In my next blog I am going to tell you stories, where have I been, and what have I done.

Chapter One: Belgium - England - France

It was in 2005 when a group of my classmates had decided to go to London. Our school organized a trip there, and anybody could volunteer, who wanted to. A few of my friends, and I have chose to go there,we thought it will be fun. Our journey started on the 12Th of July. Just when the terrorists have put bombs in English subways. It was kind of scary to travel like that. But we weren't feared so much. The voyage took 2 days, by bus.All in all the holiday lasted for 10 days. As we were touring , to catch a ferry , we stopped in Belgium,Brussels for a day. Just to look around. It was amazing. Awfully big city , with so old houses, and so tight streets, that I have never imagined. I felt like if I have had gone back in time. Just like in the medieval period. It was so amazing. We saw the atomic stuff, I don't know officially what is it called :) anyway...






The next morning we took a ferry to Dover. Good old England...WE ARE COMING! Seeing the sea was amazing. It was so dark blue, and wavy, and there were huge, white (rather black :) )clouds everywhere on the sky. After almost an hour of traveling, we saw the enormous, white cliffs of the British Island. That's something you have to see. Really. If you were already in England you know what I mean. What a feeling it was.



We spent like 6 days in England. We looked around in London on the first days, I can't find words for it, how beautiful it was. And so calm. Nobody is rushing there, everybody is patient. Not like in Hungary. I always think....why can't Hungary be like that ? What do you think? One of the days we visited Stonehenge, and Oxford, and some other close towns. Some old churches,museums, and everything.It was very tyring, but it was worth the energy. It was one of the best experiences in my life.

As we finished sightseeing in England, on the 8th days, we started our journey way back home. We took a ferryboat again, but at this time from Dover to Calais. That's right! We went to France, to Paris :) Spent a day there too, went to Madame Tussaud, Moulin Rouge, Louvre, Eiffel Tower. It was a great 2 days also. But sadly the gossip is true. There are a lot of rats in Paris. :( But its OK, They are small :)



Sorry Victoria, Beckham is my husband from now on :D ...

Hope you enjoyed my story, see you next week, ...where the topic will be Greece :)
Take care ...

Wow! That's great! I've also been to England once! It was good, but very quick! We've travelled by coach! We've visited Stratford-Upon Avon -it was awsome- and we've been to Scotland as well!
Similarly to you I like travelling a lot!

The two of us can put it together: you have been there and written about it, and I know its name: Atomium -- that special sight in Brussels.

Oh, that could be very cool!:D I have never been to London or Paris but I would like to go there! I like travelling too! :D I really hold you and your friends in high esteem because I'm sure that I shouldn't have gone to London when it was being bombed.

what a great globe-trotter you are..I'm a bit envious of you to tell the truth!

Wow, I can't believe it! My trip to England was absolutely the same as yours! Really! The cities, the traveling, the duration and all.
Don't you remember who organised it?

Andika said...

I also have been in England and France. Which was your favourite? Paris simply charmed me.
