Year 7 trip to Aachen – Day Two

Harry Pointon writing – Breakfast was warm bread rolls with cheese and salami. I just had bread. Then we drove to Koln (which we call Cologne) which has the biggest Cathedral in Europe and took over 600 years to build. Some of the boys went with Mr Mace and Mr Sanders right to the top of the bell tower which has 533 steps. It was a hard climb but they said that the view from the top was amazing – you could see for miles. Then we had some free time in the city and I spent most of it in the Lego shop which was great. I bought a tub of Lego bits but other boys bought make your own characters.

Jack Fox-Marrs writing – We walked along the River Rhine. There were big cargo boats on the water and a party boat. The embankment led us to the Lindt Chocolate Factory. This was a great experience. Tasting the chocolate from the fountain was the best bit but we also had a guided tour and tried some raw cocoa beans which were a rather bitter. We spent some time and some money in the gift shop and bought loads of chocolate. Then we hopped on the Green and Yellow train – Bimmelbahn – which took us back to the Cathedral.

Charlie Therin writing – We got sent off into town again so the teachers could have massive ice creams without us! Some of us met Mr Sanders to go to the souvenir shop before we all got back on the coach to the hotel. We ate at the restaurant – dough balls with garlic butter and flat bread cracker things. Then we had chicken in sauce and chips followed by more ice cream. It was all lovely tonight – better than last night. After dinner we went onto the coach to go bowling. We all had a game and some scored more than others. My team got the most points between us. The photo shows all the winners of each game including Mr Spruce who beat the other teachers. We’re now going to bed to get up early in the morning for breakfast before coming home again. This is our final blog and we’ve enjoyed every second of the trip. Today has been the best day by far.
