  • East meets West on Day 2

    Published 15/12/22

    Today was a tale of great woe and wow. We started the day by visiting the Border Museum Höhensleben and received a guided tour of the former border fortifications and heard about the difficulties faced by people living either side of the wall. Out tour guides were exceptionally knowledgeable, and we had chance to appreciate how lives were torn apart by the segregation caused in post WWII Germany.

    After this humbling experience, we went to Braunschweig to enjoy the beautiful Christmas market. What a cacophony of sights, sounds and aromas of Christmas.... if we weren't ready for Santa before, we certainly are now! Sausages, churros and McDonald's delicacies were all sampled. The town is absolutely gorgeous. 

    Back at the hostel, we feasted and then Mr Walker and Mr Scott went on a night-time jaunt to the local Christmas market in Wolfsburg with those who hadn't quite 'shopped-out' earlier. Mrs Husband and Mrs Brown stayed with the others at the hostel and enjoyed tea. Oh, and we all sang 'Happy Birthday' to the birthday girl... 16 in Wolfsburg. A birthday to remember.

  • Day 1 - Arrival day

    Published 15/12/22

    After a slight delay, the long travel day came to an end at about 22:15 when we arrived at the hostel. It's clean and functional, and the staff are lovely. We scoffed late night pizza and finally settled just after 01:00. No major drama to report: however, a student had a slight wobble at the airport, then was absolutely fine; we had the luxury of an extra hour and a half sitting on the plane before take off (more reading time!); a couple of cases have had an overnight stay in Heathrow - hopefully, they will join us today; Mr Walker was the hero who stopped the coach from leaving Heathrow, when a few of us had yet to embark, by diving bravely in front of it! (I might be exaggerating a little... ); we had the obligatory first night excitement of chatting till late. The students are a credit to us - polite to everyone, no moaning when delayed and full of enthusiasm. Looking forward to Day 2.
