Our journey down to Strasbourg was certainly long but we made sure we had lots of fun along the way with films, plenty of stops and even some foreign language presentations. It was a good chance for us to get to know one another better.
When we arrived at our hostel in the city at 3 o’clock we were all relieved to have somewhere to have a shower and rest our heads. We were shown to our rooms and given a chance to unwind.
Before dinner, we had a team-building activity. We had to create sketches in our foreign languages where we imagined we met one another 20 years in the future. There were lots of funny situations including an astronaut, 14 children, heart surgery and even marrying a French actor. Everybody’s language and acting skills were absolutely fantastic.
Afterwards we headed for our buffet. There was a huge choice tonight and everyone found something they liked to eat. The food in France never disappoints.
Then we headed out to see the beautiful city of Strasbourg by night. Thomas and Nelly told us lots of facts as we went on our walking tour – the upside down trees, the site where the French national anthem was first sung and of course, the stunning cathedral. It was a great chance to see the city and we can’t wait to see it tomorrow in the daylight too.
Now everyone has headed off to their rooms. Tonight’s comfortable beds will be a huge step up from our journey on the bus last night! We are all looking forward to a good night’s sleep.

À demain! ¡Hasta mañana! Bis morgen!
