Our school’s four English courses were given the chance to travel to Stratford-upon-Avon in England, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. We were very excited to travel to Great Britain in June.
Before we arrived at our host families, who were very nice to us, we had spent more than seventeen hours on the coach. The journey had started on a Sunday afternoon. It was a Monday morning when we finally reached the south coast of our destination, Great Britain.
Before we went to Stratford-upon-Avon we had stopped in the town of Kent, where we had a look at Leeds Castle, which was built hundreds of years ago using old Norman stone. It was the place where Henry VIII first wife lived. After visiting the castle, we were given some free time to see the rest of the park which Leeds Castle is nestled in. There were ducks and geese everywhere.
