Today is the first day of our Euroscola trip. We all met at Edinburgh airport at 9am and checked in for our flights to Basel. It was great to finally meet everyone and talk to people with the same interest in languages than we have. We checked in our luggage, went through security and had the chance to get a second breakfast at the airport.
The plane was about 15 minutes late but we filled the time with some French team building games. After we landed in Basel where our bus to Strasbourg was waiting for us.
After 1.5 hours on the bus, we finally arrived at the Ciarus, our hotel for the week. We went to our rooms and had some time to unpack and relax a bit after our journey.
We then had dinner at the hotel. There were lots of different French salads and mains to choose from and the dessert section was amazing! We all enjoyed our meals.
After dinner, we headed out for a night time city tour. Kara gave us some information about the main sites in the city centre, for example the splendid cathedral and the oldest pharmacy in France. It is a really beautiful city and it was great to explore the Grande Île after the long journey.
We are now back at the hotel, ready to go to bed as we will have another busy day tomorrow. Bonne nuit et à demain!
