    Not sure if this is in the right section, but its closer to academic than general chat.

    Just wanted to know if any of u have been on a school trip abroad recently (or ever), cos i just signed up to go to one next febuary in Germany, Poland, and czecoslovakia, but im not sure how fun they are. Its a long bus ride, but we can go out every night and theres no actual work on the trip at the time (but it will help us with our cwk once we get back home).

    So, has anyone else been on a school trip abroad and what was it like?

    Went on the usual French exchange, but also went to Italy with the school after GCSEs. The Italian trip was just an excuse to have a ncie time, the teachers even told our parents the drinking age was 16 (now I don't know if this is true or not, but it meant we all went off drinking every night anyway)

    I went to France and Spain one summer for an adventure/watersports kind of trip. It was great. But the coach journey back took 13 hours. That was boring!

    Apparently we stay in 3 different hotels, and the one in Poland is "extremely communist", which is quoting my history teacher.

    But the other hotel has a swimming pool!

    Alot of the buildings in Poland are communist looking i think. My nan lives there so i go there occasionally, but where she lives is not a very nice looking town. The north by the sea and the southern mountains are really nice though

    We went all over the place. The best was probable a trip to Russia with the Economics department.

    Both the trips I was supposed to go on were cancelled
    I was supposed to go on the French Exchange in year 10, but we were going to a rural area, and they were fearful of foot and mouth at the time so they didn't want us going over.
    Then, last year, there was going to be a trip for the AS/A2 students, but only me and one other person from our year signed up, and only 1 person from Lower Sixth, meaning they cancelled that too. Luckily I've had chance to go there a lot on family holidays. (That's what having a mum who used to teach French does )

    I went to Spain in Year 8. It was excellent - one of my best holidays ever. One of the crucial factors is who goes with you.
