Dear Diary, I want to share my memories and feelings about my Cyprus trip with you.
I woke up at 2 am, it was the worst experience of all the trip. We travelled by bus to Cracow and then we were waiting for our flight. Writing we, I mean Marta, Martyna, Kasia, Rafał, Szymon, Mr. Gądzik, Mrs. Pytlik and me. When we finally got to Cyprus, we went to Larnaka’s city centre and w
e went sightseeing and got to know the city better. We also wrote a song about Europe and this project. Then we went back to the airport and then travelled by bus to Limassol, where we finally met our host families. Melina was the girl that hosted me. She was an amazing, kind and funny person. Together we tried to battle the language barrier and get to know each other. She showed me her house and tried to teach me some Greek words and tongue twisters. All I can say is that Greek is way more difficult than I've expected.
Unfortunately, Melina and I were late for school, but nobody even noticed. I was with her in her French lesson. I was acting as if I understood, but actually I didn't understand a single word. After that we went to a restaurant and ate something, they also prepared a cake for Marta, because it was her birthday. Then we travelled by bus to old ruins of an amphitheatre. After school Andreani, Danea and Melina took Marta, Kasia, Martyna and me to the Marina. We were on a big wheel; it was scary but also fun.
We were at school and then went to Nicosia and visited an archaeological museum and ate dinner. We also had some free time to buy something. When Melina and I got home, we spent some time together and I found out that we have a lot in common.
Wednesday and Thursday
On the 4th and 5th day lots of things happened. We created a new song and Marta and Martyna were supposed to sing it at the studio, but by accident they took me too, so I sang as well. I sing completely out of key. We did more things like going to the mall, ice-skating and just had fun.
Friday was the last day, but it wasn't boring at all. Melina's father gave Mrs.Pytlik, Mr. Gądzik and me a lift to the bus station. We travelled by the same bus that took us to Limassol. When we finally got to the airport, we had a lot of time while waiting for the plane to Warsaw. In Warsaw we were in a shopping centre called Złote Tarasy to eat something. After our meal we needed to hurry to be at the train station on time. The train got us home safety and really quickly.
