OUR TRIP TO MADRID
Hi, we are Elisabet, Clàudia Vallmajó, Claudia Guilana and Oleg Mumbrú, and last april we went on a trip to Madrid with our ESO 2 classmates.
At 7 o'clock, we went to the school and we took a bus to Girona. There, we waited for the train (AVE) and we recorded some videos. At 11:45 we arrived to Madrid. Another bus took us to a hostel called Motion and we left our luggage there. After that we visited the “Congreso de los Diputados” and some friends like Clàudia Vallmajó, did an oral presentation about it to the class like Clàudia Vallmajó.
At 14:30 we had lunch and at 15:45 we visited the Museo del Prado. Some of our classmates like Claudia G, explained some paintings to the class. When we finished, we went to Parque del Retiro and there we had one hour for free time.
In the afternoon, we visited la Puerta de Alcalá where we sang a song about it. Finally we took an underground to go to la Opera square.
At 20:30 we had dinner at Fresco and we went to the hostel to sleep.
At 09:00 we had breakfast and we went on foot to Puerta del Sol, Palacio Real's gardens and to the Almudena's cathedral. Then we had lunch at Fresco, the same restaurant that we went on the first day. In the afternoon, we went to a presentation about the Xi'an warriors, which was really good. After that, we walked around Plaza Neptuno, Cibeles and the Council of Madrid. When we fiinished, we ate the famous “Bocata de Calamares” in Plaza Mayor. Then we had free time and we went to the hostel to sleep and watch the football match on the TV.
Like the second day we had breakfast and then, we made the luggage. When we finished, we walked along la Gran Via until la Plaza de España. After that, we had free time and we went to the Templo de Debot and the Senado.
At 13:30 we had lunch at the same restaurant called Fresco. After that we came back to the Motion hostel and we took the bags to leave Madrid. We arrived at Atocha Station where we had one hour for free time and bought some sweets. At 16:00, we caught the AVE which took us to Girona. At 20:02, we arrived to Girona and a bus took us to Banyoles. At 20:45 we arrived at school where our parents were waiting for us.
