As some of you may know us, the 2L, 2U and 2T, flew to Sliema which is in Malta.
Our journey started on Sunday, the 6th of October. All we did on the first day was meeting our host-families and explore the city of Sliema. On our second day we had school first thing in the morning from 9 o’ clock until half past 12. After 3 hours of only speaking English we were finally allowed to visit the beautiful capital city of Malta, called Valletta.
1st trip – Valletta: We went to the 5D cinema and had a short stroll through Malta. We would’ve stayed longer if it hadn’t started to rain as much as it did. After that we had some free time for ourselves and did whatever we wanted to (stroll through the city and eat out with friends).
The 3rd day was packed with school ‘til half past 4. After school we were supposed to see Valletta by night but of course the weather did spoil that too as the ferries didn’t work on such bad weather. So we just got free time again.
Now let’s talk about our 4th day: GOZO! Gozo is a small island near Malta, which we went to by ferry and afterwards we got into the heart of the city by bus. Gozo was an amazing little island and we enjoyed every single second of it. We saw lots of mountains and amazing architecture and landscapes.
On the 5th day we also attended school from 9 ‘til half past 12. Afterwards we had an excursion with our teachers to Popeye Village. Popeye Village was actually just built to shoot films but they decided to make a tourist attraction out of it. There we got free popcorn, postcards and a free boat trip. We were also allowed to go for a swim, which some of us did. At 5 p.m. we went home to relax and recharge ourselves since we had plans to meet for bowling later that day. Bowling lasted for about an hour, from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. and we were allowed to go on our own way from there on.
Our last evening in Sliema, Malta was spent with lots of laughter with friends, good food and potentially some partying.
Sadly, everything good has to come to an end. Friday, our 6th and last day, was spent in school again and afterwards we just went back home to the host-families and prepare to leave. At approximately 2 p.m. we were at the airport ready to get back home to our beautiful and beloved Vienna.
The trip may not have always have gone as expected but nonetheless we enjoyed every little moment of it and are very thankful that our teachers gave us the opportunity to see another culture and country. We hope that the next grade loves Malta as much as we did.
