Mind the Gap 2018

"Nuestro Querido 2º de Bach ya está en Londres"
Después del duro curso y selectividad (fingers crossed), ya han partido a su ansiado y merecido viaje de fin de estudios a Londres. Un precioso colofón a 15 años de periplo escolar que a buen seguro quedará como un recuerdo indeleble tras el transcurso de los años
Enjoy the experience lads!!

First Day - Friday 8th June 2018

 The beginning of an amazing trip...

After an intensive week of exams, the end of Selectividad has finally arrived!!!

We managed to spare some relaxing moments but not for long, as we were soon checking in for our flight to this end of school trip we have been looking forward to for sooo long.

Our journey began today 8th of June 2018 at 9:30, when we all met  our parents and also of course, our beloved miss Julie.

After our final goodbyes, off we went to catch our plane.

By the time we got to the hotel it was very very late and we headed straight to bed.

Second Day - Saturday 9th June 2018
 
After a short night's sleep, we woke up at 7:45 and had a quick breakfast. 
 
Then, we got  the tube at Russell Square and  headed to see the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, which was covered in scaffolding.
 
We also visited Westminster Abbey, but we only saw the outside because there was a very long queue to go in, so instead we lay down in St-James Park for a while.
 
We suddenly heard people shouting and we ran to see the Queen's parade, we were so lucky to see her in the flesh on her official birthday!!!
 
Next, we saw Buckingham Palace which was really crowded.
 
Later on, we decided to walk through Hyde park, the biggest green area in central London.
 
The weather was really good and we had a delicious ice cream to help us fight the heat.
 
After a 40 minute long but nice walk, we finally got to Little Venice, one of the prettiest residential areas and we had lunch. 
 
After filling our stomachs and resting we walked all the way to Camden Town, following the canal, we passed Regent's park and London zoo.
 
We spent a couple of hours in Camden Town, where we had some snacks, did some shopping...etc.
 
As soon as we finished we returned to the hotel on foot and luckily it rained only a few drops. 
 
We were exhausted when we reached the hotel but glad to have had such a nice day and proud of walking 26km. 
 
At 9pm we bought dinner and we went to Russell Square to eat it. We had to rush in order not to get locked inside the park.

Third Day - Sunday 11th June 2018
 
After having a quick breakfast, we went to Sky Garden, where the views were fantastic! 
 
Mr. Gaspar had a leatherman tool which wasn't allowed, so he couldn't enjoy the unforgettable visit. 
 
Then we walked to the breathtaking St. Paul's Cathedral and we attended a 5 minute-mass. 
 
Even though we spent little time there, it was worth going.After the mass we headed to one of the tallest building in the city  to enjoy the view
of the whole city. We spent about 2 hours there.
 
We were quite hungry by that time,  so we went to a nearby Mc Donald’s to give ourselves a treat.
 
After lunch we went to the British museum to check out some of the masterpieces of human history.
 
We then visited Covent garden and shopped a little bit there and we followed  a few street performances.

Fourth Day - Monday 11th June 2018
 
 
Today has been a lovely day full of emotions. After having a nice breakfast, we went to the underground, to Bank station, because some of us needed to change the old money. Then we went to the Tate modern museum and in order to go there we crossed the Millennium Bridge. We saw a lot of contemporary art and then we headed to the Globe theater where we watched an exhibition, joined workshop. and acted out some lines of Romeo and Juliet.

After having lunch in St. Katherine’s Dock we took the underground to the hotel and went bowling, where we had an excellent evening.

Fifth Day - Tuesday 12th June 2018
 
Today we had to wake up earlier than the rest of the week because we had to leave the hotel by 8:30 in the morning. At first, we couldn't find the bus we had to take and Mr. Gaspar became crazy looking for it, in the end he found it in Russell Square. From there, we took a bus to Knightsbridge, and on our way there, we saw Oxford Street, different luxury hotels and amazing cars.

In Knightsbridge we started by visiting the natural history museum which exhibits a vast range of specimens from various segments of natural history. From there we went to the science museum.

Later in the day we had over 4 hours to eat and wonder around oxford Street where we had time to go shopping.

We met again in Piccadilly circus around 7pm and went to watch Les Misérables.

The end of the day was wonderful, specially for all those who are sentimental, "Les Misérables" made them cry laugh and enjoy themselves.

Mr. Gaspar really enjoyed it too! The setting, the singing and the acting were all “on point”.

Sixth Day - Wednesday 13th June 2018
 
Today was our last day in London and the trip has gone better than expected. We woke left the hotel at 9:15 and we took the underground to get to the place where we had rented some bicycles. We spent all morning cycling around London with a guide and it was a relief to finally have another way of moving around -as we are all incredibly exhausted due to how much we’ve been walking these past few days- but we can’t forget the epic fall of Ines.

After this we had something to eat from a Tesco supermarket and we had a “little picnic” in a park nearby.

Later, after visiting the National Gallery for a little over an hour, on we were given until 7pm to go shopping around Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus so we did some more walking and some of us managed to end up with their hands full of shopping bags.

To our surprise the premiere of the movie Oceans8 was taking place in Piccadilly and some of us had the chance to get a glance of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and some others! It was amazing!

We then went to a Wok to have our last dinner of the trip together and we had a wonderful time all together.

This trip was fantastic and it was the best way to say goodbye to the school, well let’s say see you later.

Back home - Thursday 14th June 2018
 
Game Over!
 
Today was our last day, or rather our last hours, since we left the UK very early in the morning, when our plane took off sharp at 7 AM.

We had to wake up at three or shortly after that to assemble in the foyer of our hotel building at quarter to four in the morning. Two of the transfer vehicles had arrived, but we still had to wait for the other two that were just a little late. London had very little activity in those early hours, and our trip to Stansted was short of 50 minutes.
 
Everything went very fast after that. Having arrived in different vehicles, we first had to assemble, and then had to work our way through the Auto check-in system where we had a slight problem because someone checked his/her baggage twice, after that there was a slow queue through security where three students had their hand luggage checked, and finally we proceeded to gate 7 where our plane was waiting ready for departure.
 
Most slept through the flight back, happy because of the great time we have spent in this amazing city, and sad because this final experience with all the class together is over.

Only one more day to wear the unifor and then each of us will fly towards different adventures.
 
See you all again on Saturday.
 
Mind the Gap!
