Today we are going to Liverpool on our one-day trip. The coach will be leaving from the car park opposite St John University at 8.00 in the morning. We will be arriving in Liverpool around 10.30.
The first thing we will be visiting is Anfield stadium (Liverpool FC), then we will be going to the Albert Docks. Then we will have time for shopping and pop in The Cavern to see the pub where The Beatles began their musical career. You can also visit the Liverpool Museum.
Finally, we will be arriving back home in York by 18.00.
This trip has been a bit bizarre. We usually have problems in the first days of the stay. This time all the problems (I'd rather say misunderstandings, little distubances with the public transport) appeared at the end, instead. Our students behaved great, but they had some problems with buses (line 1) a few of them arrived a bit late, As well, two girls had a little misunerstanding about their pack lunches and what to do on Sunday, which could be easily solved thanks to York Tutors staff.
And what about our day? We shared the coach with the group from Aviles, who are really nice and who have become so close to the students in our group. The first thing to do was the visit to Anfield Stadium (Liverpool F.C.), then we had our guided tour ìn the Albert docks and finally we had some free time.
This was the time when something amazing happened to our teacher Albert. Four old students of his at IES Mediterraneo pop out a shop and happened to see him, so they shouted at him and came to say hello. How amazing! Three of them had participated in some of our previous experiences in the British-Irish Isles.
Finally, we returned home again with mixed feelings. On the one hand, we are eager to go back home. On the other hand, we feel sad because our adventure is coming to an end,
