My Grand Trip to Germany 🇩🇪 – Part Two

 

This is the second blog the first one is here.

The next day we went to the Jewish memorial for the murdered jews of Europe. It was about World War 2 and had lots of facts and extracts from letters and diaries. Then we went to get some falafels from Da-Da: they were delicious!😋 After that, we went to Princess Cheesecake for some…cheesecake! I had a blueberry cheesecake; it was delicious! I also had some homemade lemonade. When we had finished our cheesecake, we went to Checkpoint Charlie which had helped over 5,075 people cross from East Germany to West Germany. The office even had a man wearing a uniform outside! Then we went to the Deutsches Currywurst Museum. It was really interesting! I had a quiz to do and got most of it correct. Then for tea we went to BRLO a really nice restaurant and brewery.

The day after, we went to the Computerspielemuseum which is a computer game museum. They had loads of computer games on display; many of them were English. Most of them you were allowed to play, however others were just for looking at.

When we had had enough of computer games we went to Sheeso for some delicious burgers. I had a cheeseburger. It was mouth-watering.

Sadly, it was the last day of the holiday we had one of the best things to do… go to the Reichstag, the German parliament building. As we went up the dome I had an amazing panoramic view of Berlin. You could see right to the edge of the city, it was terrific!!! Then we went to the zoo. Here are some of the animals we saw.

Then we went to Seaside for our tea .We had fish and it was all laid out on the counter so you could just ask for that to be cooked. We had load of fish.

oysters

 

Sadly, that was the last day of the holiday. I loved it in Germany and want to go back. This was probably the best holiday ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Grand Trip to Germany Part 1

In the summer holidays, I went on a fantastic holiday to Germany 🇩🇪 here are the highlights:

Day 1

When we arrived in Germany, rented a car and went to a lake beach.

We relaxed for a bit, then we went to a park called britzer garten. I got into a load of water sprays and got soaked, then we had a wiener (Pronounced v-ee-n-ur.) A wiener is a hot dog.

When we got in the car  we were all looking forward to having a schnitzel.

After the park, we went to Felix Austria, a place for delicious schnitzels. Then we went to our apartment with our bellies full up of schnitzels.

Day 3

We went to Mount Mitte, which was a really high climbing thing, and I really enjoyed it!

After that we went to a fast food restaurant to have currywurst (pronounced curry-vurst) – a sausage covered in curry sauce  – YUM.

Next we went to Stone Brewing to go on a brewery tour.

The restaurant was really fancy with fans and trees everywhere. One table was even carved into a tree. The food was really nice.

Day 4

We went to the wall museum on the fourth day and learnt about the German division.

Later onwards, we went to Mogg & Melzer a jewish restaurant and had some delicious sandwiches.

Afterwards, we went up the Berlin TV Tower and got some amazing panoramic views of Berlin.

That’s it for now but I’ll be back soon with the next few days in Germany.

My Amazing Trip to Scotland Part 2

Aberdeen

After we went to Edinburgh we went to Aberdeen and we stayed in a really nice apartment. The day after we arrived in Aberdeen we went out to a park and there was a kind gardener who gave us some freshly grown peas right out of the pods. I went on some slides as wel,l which were amazing, so were the winter gardens, which house the largest cacti garden in the whole of the UK!

My Amazing Trip to Scotland Part 1

Edinburgh

In the holidays, I went to Scotland for a week and first we went to Edinburgh and then to Aberdeen afterwards. When we arrived in Edinburgh, we went to Arthur’s Seat, which is an extinct volcano; Arthur’s Seat is 250.5 m (822 ft) high, and it was really hard work climbing up it, but was worth it because it had loads of amazing views all around.

The next day we went to Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, which was brilliant. It had loads of good views from the top and you can spy on people, give them electric shocks and play the stairs, when you walked on the stairs they played the piano and so much more. From the gift shop I got a Spy pen and a static science kit. My favourite thing there was a mirror maze, which was really tricky.

Vikings’ River Splash

This was the water rapids ride, we got soaked!

The Dragon

This was my personal favourite, it’s a rollercoaster that goes through some rooms in a castle with a dragon and a wizard and lots of other stuff, then it exits the building and goes sideways and through the trees.

These were some of the other rides.

My Brilliant Half Term

Monday

Rivington Pike

On Monday we went to Rivington Pike up to the top and I only had one rest on the whole journey which was at the top of the Pike, so I was exhausted by the time I got to the top! The view was the best I’d ever seen it I could see so far out!

This is the view from the pike.

We were going back down the Pike, but  we went a different way I’d never been before. At last we were at the bottom of the Pike and then we went and had a drink in the Great Hall Barn and I had a hot chocolate. Mmmm! 🙂

On Friday we went to WHSmith in Manchester to spend our £20 Gift Cards from Uncle Bob Auntie Lauren and Brandon. First we went to Debenhams for Georgia to spend her £25 voucher and I looked at a lot of things that I really liked there were so many of them!
