After we had left on Sunday at 4:30 a.m., we reached the Channel Tunnel via Luxembourg, Belgium and France. After the 16-hour drive, we were picked up by our host families.
During the days we spent our time in London. On our first day we took a boat trip on the Thames where we saw the London Eye, the Tower Bridge and Big Ben. Then we walked through London, where we saw some more sights up close.
On Tuesday we went to Camden Market in the morning and had a workshop at the Shakespeare’s Globe Theater in the afternoon.
We spent the third day in Oxford, where we explored the city and were guided by former OHG student and now student of the Unviersity of Oxford Bastian Wiederhold.
On Thursday we went to the British Museum after that we could go to Covent Garden.
On our last day we said goodbye to our host families in the morning and took our suitcase to the bus. In the evening we were supposed to go home again. In the morning we went to the Tower Bridge and went into one of the towers. After that we were at Borough Market. In the evening we met at the O2 Arena, where we took the bus home overnight. Around nine o’clock the next morning we arrived at the circular sports hall.
We also had free time on the individual days, when we were allowed to explore London on our own in small groups. In the evenings we always went back to the host families, where we got a warm dinner. We and the other students really enjoyed our trip to London.
