On Saturday, we took the flight and it was my first time to get on a plane, so I was really scared, but after a while, I calmed down. When we arrived, we went to wait for the English hosts, Patricia´s host came at the moment but mine took a while to arrive. Mine is called Faye and she had taken also a Belgian one who´s called Sarah, at first sight I found them really nice. We went to her house and it was pretty big and beautiful. The most surprising thing is that she has eight cats! We immediately changed our clothes because we were going to the cinema. First, we went to eat pizza and after that we went to see “The Fifth Wave” which is a film about an alien invasion, I really loved the film. After that we went back home and I was so tired, so I quickly fell asleep.
On Sunday we went to town with some of Faye´s friends, they´re all so funny and we enjoyed the day together. We also went to the “Bullring” which is a huge shopping centre and I bought some CD´s from there. We also went to the canals and I took a lot of photos, it´s amazing. At night, we watched “Scream” which is a scary film, I´m afraid of horror films but Faye and Sarah love them, I was screaming all the time and they were laughing at me. They liked it a lot, I did not like it that much, lol!
On Monday we went to her school, it´s so big and all the students must wear uniforms, something that I hate so much because I can´t stand them. I finally met Patricia, I hadn´t seen her since Saturday, and she told me that on Sunday they went skiing in the snow, I wanted to go there so badly :´(. We went to the “Bullring” again with Patricia, Courtney, Sarah, Faye and me. I bought three perfumes for 24£ from “Victoria´s Secret” but, at the airport I couldn´t bring them to Spain with me because they exceeded 100ml.
On Tuesday we went to school in the morning and when it finished we went to the bowling alley and then to the laser games. We had dinner for the first time in Faye´s house and we ate spaghetti, Patricia and Courtney came with us to have dinner too. When they went back home, we went upstairs and we watched “Scream 2” but I couldn´t finish it because I got really scared and Faye changed the film to “Scary Movie” which is a parody of “Scream”.
On Wednesday we went to Stratford, where Shakespeare was born, I thought that we were going to visit his house but we walked through the town and it was better and funnier. Sarah bought some soaps and bath salts for her family but her best friend Thomas didn´t buy anything. We had lunch in a restaurant and we ate burgers, chips and nachos, it was really delicious. In the afternoon, we said “goodbye” to all with a lot of kisses and hugs and we all promised that we were going to see each other someday again. We went back to the airport and we took the flight at half past five more or less, we arrived in Spain at nine o´clock.
It was a great experience and I had a lot of good and unforgettable moments. I’m sure I’ll forget the strange ones. In general, I had good moments and I enjoyed travelling to England and visiting Birmingham, I found it a lovely town
