Polish students with teachers went to Spain-Galapagar between 04.05 and 12.05 2011. We travelled about ten hours. First to Berlin airport by coach and then by plane to Madrid.
We met our Spanish friends and we started our visit with a day at school. On Friday we had a pleasure to meet the Mayor at the Town Hall. At the weekend we had free time with families. Some of us visited Santiago Bernabéu, shopping center or the amusement park in Madrid. This was very exciting and new experience. On Monday, after some sport activities at school, we saw the Monastery of El Escorial and took a trek to Philip II’s Chair. Afternoon was delicious and full of dance. Tuesday was the trip to Riofio Palace and visit to the Royal Cystal factory. As the last part we walked around Segovia and visited the Alcazar. The next day we were taken to Madrid. There we saw Royal Palace, Cathedral, Old Town Hall, Puerta del Sol, The Congress and El Prado Museum. Our last day was very active- we went to Amazonia Adventure Park in Cercedilla.
This exchange learnt us a lot of things, now we can speak English better and we don’t worry about communication with foreign speakers. Our Spanish friends were very friendly, open and caring. We would like say thank you to the teachers- Marisa, Ana, Juan, Jorge and Javier who made our stay nice and interesting. We hope we”ll meet again one day in Spain or Poland.
