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 2

The next day, we went to a Peacock Island ( Pfaueninsel) and we had to get on a boat to get to the island.

On the island, we had a picnic and went into a white castle.

When we went back to main land we went to the apartment for a bit and then went to The Bird for burgers. They were delicious. Afterwards, we went to BrewDog for a few drinks.

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.

Then, we went to see part of the wall that was left up. For tea we went to a street food festival and had currywurst.

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

My Terrific Tenth Birthday

After I’d opened my presents , we went to Milton Keynes and I went on a Helter-Skelter, which was quite high.

After that, we went to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden. I had a quiz to do and there were chocolate doors into the Solo gallery, where you can find out about his childhood.

Wonka chocolate doors

In the story centre, I made my own movie with figurines. In the Upper Babbling room, which is a craft room, I made a snail in a jar. Afterwards we did the village and countryside trails, the countryside trail through the woods and through a field was amazing, there were grasshoppers everywhere. It was very relaxing!

The woods were the ones that inspired Fantastic Mr Fox, The Minpins and Danny the Champion of the World. Along the high street were some old-fashioned pumps that inspired Danny the champion of the World The library inspired Matilda and the crown house Sophie’s “norphanage”. We also went and looked at Roald Dahl’s grave.

When we had finished the trails we went to the Black Horse for tea, I had a delumptiosly, scrumdiddlyumptious pheasant and mushroom pie.😋

Back home, I was shown my scrumdiddlyumptious IRN BRU cake🎂, it was the best cake🍰 I’d ever had!!

Thanks for all your presents, I loved them all! Hope to see you all again soon.

Leeds

In the Easter holidays I went to Leeds for a week, we stayed in a nice house. Then we went to BrewDog for tea and had Red’s barbecued food. I love Red’s.

Then we went and had tea in an Indian restaurant called Bundobust and I had a nice drink I’d never heard of before called Chai.

My favourite bit of food was the okra fries, they look a bit like green chillies and were really delicious.

Then we went shopping, I got some clothes and Lego.

On the second day I played Monopoly for most of the day then I went to Nando’s with my Grandad, Mummy, Daddy and Georgia. Afterwards, I went to the cinema to watch the hilarious film of Beauty and the Beast.

 

The next day I was super happy because we went bowling and I won with 92 points! (I did have the bumpers up.) 🙂 😉

Then we went to the arcade and I got lots of prizes, played a game of air hockey, played Mario Kart together and spent ages on the two pence machines and me and Daddy won a red shoe.

I really enjoyed my time in Leeds and would love to go again.

When we were waiting to leave we were talking to the man behind the bar, who gave us some of Heston’s special chocolates which looked like stones- I thought he was tricking us and making us eat stones but they were really nice chocolates!

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! 🙂
