England and Scotland

Day 1
We departed from Prague’s Central Station. About 3 hours later we arrived to border to Rozvadov. It was starting to get dark and I quickly fell asleep.

Day 2
I woke up early in the morning in Bruxelles. We were transported by underground to citie’s downtown. We saw European parliament and famous square Grand-Place or the Cathedral of St.Michael and St. Gudula. Bruxelles is more administrating city, so there wasn’t so much sights. Our last visit was The Atomium, giant molecule of iron where you could go up and have a view all over the city.

We then left Bruxelles for Calais. We passed through beautiful city of Oostende, which is located literally near the sea. We arrived in Calais at about 7 p.m. We took our luggage to our rooms and then we bought some food in the supermarket just behind the corner. I went to bed early, because I was very tired.

Day 3
We woke up very early in the morning, because there was long way ahead us. We should have taken a train which would took us to Folkestone, but there were complications, so we took ferry. We lost some time, but it was great experience for me. We arrived in Folkestone and then we quickly left for London. I have to say it was very strange to see changed sides of the road.

In London, we saw many of its famous sights including Big Ben, Buckingham Palace or London Eye. But I rated the visit of Arsenal Stadium the highest. It was an amazing place. But I was kind of sad, because we got over it very fast and there wasn’t much time to investigate sights further. We spent all day in London and I think I liked it most there. It was different than in the Czech Republic and people were very kind. At 10 p.m. we left London and we were on the way to Edinburgh.

Day 4
On the way to Edinburgh we saw The Ruins of Hadrian’s Wall. But saw. It was late night. I saw just one meter some wall. We arrived in Edinburgh in the morning. We visited the Edinburgh Castle, which is the most famous Scottish sight. Tickets were expensive, but it was great. We got to beds late and we had new plans for next morning.

Day 5
We got up and then we left Edinburgh for Stirling, another old Scottish beautiful city with castle. In the past, the famous William Wallace defeated here the British army. We left in the afternoon for Falkirk where we saw the Falkirk Wheel, which is a giant device using Archimedes‘ Law to lift boats. We then returned to Edinburgh and we went to sleep.

Day 6
We left Edinburgh for Calais, which have taken us all day. We visited York and Cambridge.  We arrived at Calais late night and then we went to sleep after long  journey by bus.

Day 7

We departed from Calais to Paris. We saw Eiffel’s Tower, some of us even bought tickets all the way to the top. There was a great view. I’d never seen anything like this before. We saw the famous “Notre Damme” and „Invalidovna“ where is the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte. At night we finally decided to return home passing Germany.
