From the 10th of July 'till the 14th we went to Milan, Italy, with our whole class. It was the most amazing thing we've ever done.
Day 1: ,,Oh my God, can you imagine we're going to Milan?''
The first day we took off from an airport in Germany close to our hometown. It was a bit rainy that morning but hell, we were going to Milan. First with the bus, and everyone said goodbye to their parents. It was a nice flight and we've met this person who was showing us card tricks and he tried to speak a little bit dutch. He couldn't.:P
Yes I was exhausted:
After an 3 hour flight we arrived and it was very warm. We had to wait on our suitcases and then we had to go to the bus for another ride of at least an hour to Bergamo, which is a place right next to Milan. It was also the place of our youth hostel called Pierro Rotta. When we arrived at the hostel, a guy gave us keys for our rooms. Everyone said it looked just like a prison. I can't really call it a great, fantastic perfect room, but I was good enough. We got to get to know the place we were staying and ate in this little parc. We discovered the pool where we were going to swim in. That night we ate in a restaurant near the hostel.
Day 2: ,,First day in Milan! So excited!"
This day we started with a visit to the Leonardo DaVinci museum. It was fun but I personally expected more than that. I couldn't find another picture:P
It was very very very warm that day. After that visit we had to do some grocery's because that afternoon we were going to have a big picknick at the park with an amazingly huge castle. That was really awesome. We didn't do anything special that day, but we went to the swimming pool and you had to wear these bathing caps which looked really stupid. Everyone was like: ,,NO WAY! I'm not gonna wear THAT thing!'':O:S That was one of the reasons that some of our classmates didn't swim but just went tanning. That evening we went to the same restaurant. And after dinner we went back to the hostel and hang around. Talked with some french people, but that's all.
Day 3: ,, A museum? Again?"
It felt like everyday museum day!:O No.. just kidding:P But today everyone was dragged to the Design Museum. Which was awfully boring. It sucked and it wasn't really anything I was expecting, though. I mean it had all these sculpture's I had already seen. And then we went to this big fountain, it was amazing!
Everyone jumped into that fountain and got wet,
but that was okay I mean we were like almost dying, haha!:P We had our lunch there because we couldn't sit anywere else. But it was fun though Some of us went to the Scala, a big opera building.
But others went to the soccer-stadium. We went swimming for the second time because of the heat. Then we went home and changed our clothes, went to the hart of Milan and ate there. Pizza. How thoughtful.:P
Day 4: ,,Let's climb this thing!"
Today the french people left. Yes we had to visit the whole city! We went to this cathedral: Duomo.
And I thought it was GOR-GEOUS! But the hardest part has yet to come: we had to climb that thing! The stairs weren't really fun to climd because it was some sort of spiral staircase, and when you looked out of one of these very small windows to check how shrill you was.. You weren't event higher then a truck or something. So that was pretty awful. But after an half hour climbing, you arrived at the roof, you had an amazing sight. You could see the whole town. Yes that was awesome. We ate there and then we went shopping. First up: one of the most expensive malls. It was really expensive.. For us y'know?:P It was a mall where you had this idea that you couldn't touch anything 'cause you thought it'll break. Louis Vitton, YSL, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, Christian Dior and many more. At the upper floor were a few restaurants. Even this sushibar which I loved! There was also this bull where you had to put your foot in and then twist. It was odd, if you made a whole circle you may make a wish, if you don't, you were screwed?
This was our last night, we ate somewhere else at this other restaurant next to a river. On the other side of the river were standing little booths where they sold bags, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and belts and everything. It was really fun.:P And it was time to pack our bags and leave the beautiful hostel. After a few hours of sleep.
Day 5: ,,Goodbye Milan, we'll miss you"
Last day in Milan! Last picture day and everything. First vehicle: the bus. Second up: Airplane Last of all: Bus. We had so much fun in the bus back home.
It was sad to leave Milan 'cause we had a great time there. I will do it all over again if I could.:P But it couldn't Too bad that we couldn't stay any longer but.. yeah. Well, that was the story of Milan. I didn't wanted to type a way too long story because that would be boring. Anyway, I miss it and I wanna go back with the whole class. It was awesome and I'll never forget: class of '09! (L)
