Athens Trip

Athens1

During half term, some of us went on a school trip to Greece.

On the first day we went to the Acropolis site in Athens. There was also a temple dedicated to Athena. It had the olive tree she planted for Athens. The stones on the temple were carved to make stories. Then we went to the Acropolis museum. We got to see the original ruins up close. They were really detailed, although with old age some of the stone pieces had chipped off, but they were beautifully decorated. In my opinion, the Greece trip was amazing and lots of fun. I saw things that I thought I would never see. And I would like to say thank you to the teachers for organising this trip!

The second day we went to Delphi, we had a terrific view of Delphi's site and a very detailed guided tour. We went to a museum about the sites of Delphi. Then we went to this delicious restaurant where we ate all kinds of new food. On our way back we went to the monastery, which was beautiful. Overall, the Greece trip was something that I'll never forget. The teachers were very kind and helpful. 

On the third day we went to Nafplio and Corinth's canal, first we went to Corinth's Canal and took pictures of the view. Then we went to the museum and looked at the different items that they had in ancient Greek times and what they were used for and where they came from. Then we had lunch in one of the streets very close to the square in Nafplio. All the girls thoroughly enjoyed the Greece trip, all the days were jam-packed with fun and educational activities.

It was a great trip and we really enjoyed it.
