Day 10: Best Trip of My Life (Or one of)
So, I’ve been on a few trips in my life and I have two that make me the happiest to think about, my first trip to Paris (Which is the one I’ll link at the bottom) and my school trip to Italy, which is what I’m going to briefly write about today! Which actually I was on this time 7 years ago! Where has the time gone, I can’t believe it was 7 years ago!
When I was 15 I was lucky enough to be one of fifteen students that went on a school trip to Italy, it was honestly one of the best trips I have ever been on. We started our adventure in Rome and spent a couple of days there doing all the historical and touristy things like the Colosseum, Vatican City, Spanish Steps, pretty much everything, before heading off to Florence (which quickly became my favourite city, and until this day is still my favourite city I’ve been to).
We were also surprised with an afternoon trip to Pisa which wasn’t actually on our itinerary but the two teachers decided that while we were close enough to Pisa while in Florence we should go, which was honestly such a nice afternoon. I remember just laying on the grass hanging out in the sun by the tower and just having the best time!
We then went up north to a small town called Biella in the Piedmont region, which is where we would be meeting our homestays and their families and spending two weeks living and going to school with them, which was honestly such a good experience. In those two weeks, we also did a trip to Venice for two days, day trips to Milan, Turin and up to Monte Bianco, as well as sitting in on school lessons and so much partying on weekends, which the teachers weren’t aware of! However, it’s what teenagers do in Italy, and on a Friday afternoon we’d say goodbye to our teachers for the weekend and they’d give us some extra spending money and on a Saturday night our homestays would take us out clubbing and drinking and that’s where we would spend the money our teachers gave us and on a Monday we’d have to lie about where we spent it!
And then on our way home, our teachers managed to swing a two-day stopover in Singapore for us, which was a total added bonus! We got to explore Singapore a bit, we went on the night safari they have there and over to Sentosa Island on the huge cable car and two the aquarium, all before heading home and back to school!
This was honestly such an amazing trip and I can’t believe it’s been an entire 7 years since it happened, I feel so lucky and going through photos for the blog brought back so many amazing memories.
Anyway, here’s the link to the other post I talked about earlier!
