  4. 4. TURKEY’S MEMORIES It was the first journey in the Comenius Proyect. We went by bus to the airport in Madrid, which was about one hour by car from our city, Toledo. The journey by plane took 2 hours to Instambul, although it took us 4 hours since we arrived at the airport until they gave us our luggage. When we arrived, the Turkish people were waiting for us. Then we caught a bus and it took us to our house with the corresponding partner. The following day, we met again at the school called VKV Koç Özel Lisesi really early, at 7 o’ clock. The school was amazing and we made friends very quikcly. In the afternoon we went to Santa Sofia, and finally we visited the blue mosque, one of the biggest monuments in Instambul. The third day, we played football against the Turkish students at the high school and in the evening, we saw the Big Bazaar in which we could buy a lot of traditional things from Tur- key. In the Big Bazaar, a pickpocket stole the wallet from a Spanish partner. Fortunately, he had more money. For dinner, we went to one of the best restaurants in Instambul. We felt very comfortable because we ate all we wanted in very good company. Tha last day in Instambul, we were very sad because we had go to Bursa and say good bye to our Turkish friends. When we had taken all the photos and asked for the messen- gers, we visited the Big Bazaar once more and walked through the city. Raul, our Spanish partner, made a promise to our teacher about his hair, and we went to a hairdressing and he had his hair cut. Then, we took a ferry to go to Bursa, where we met the Italian, Polish, Holland and Greek people. Page 4
  5. 5. TURKEY’S MEMORIES It took us an hour, then we caught taxis and we went to our new house and we met the families in Bursa. The next day in Bursa we went to the highschool and we presented our proyect. Later, while we were eating, we met all the members of the Comenius Project. We went to a factory of a kind of very famous sweet in the world called Kafkas. The last day in Turkey, we stayed in a Spanish hotel where we enjoyed some of the best pleasures in life: a free sauna, Spanish food, and returning to our timeta- ble. And that was the end of our trip! THINGS WE FOUND VERY CURIOUS FROM TURKEY: • Free Internet for everybody • Starbucks in every street • The timetable • The kindness of the families Page 4

  7. 7. MADEIRA: INTERVIEW Did you go to the beach? What are beaches there like? Yes, I went to the beach four days, but only in one of them there was sand, the rest were stone beaches. What was the school like? Did you attend any lesson? We only saw the high school from the outside and I didn’t go to any lesson with them because we visited different places in Madeira. What was the city like? Did it “If I could go back there, have many monuments? I’m sure I would return” I was in a small city and there were not any monuments there and if I wanted to go out with friends I had to go by car. The typical houses What was the thing that surprised you there are very small and very rural. the most? What surprised me most was the land- scape because it was very green with many cliffs and there was a lot of water everywhere. Would you come back if you could? Yes, of course! I liked the trip very much and if I could go there again, I’m sure that I would go. I met a lot of people from many countries, it was a very good experience and it was great fun! Page 7
  8. 8. GREEK CURIOSITIES EVERYTHING YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT GREECE... They liked coffee very much and they drink a typical transparent liquor that turns grey when you move iIn Greece, people can drink alcohol and smoke when they are fourteen years old. Also, people could ask for a typical Greek game whose name is ΤΑΒΛΙ. From the point of view of gastronomy, there were differences in cheese: Greek cheese was stronger than our cheese. They ate it in a lot of different ways and in almost every meal. Page 8
  9. 9. GREEK CURIOSITIES One of the typical meals that they liked most was the “sublaki”. It is meat in a stick with a lot of spices. On the tables in bars there were free snuff packages for consum- ers. A big cultural difference is religion. While in Spain most people are catholic, in Greece they are orthodox (another kind of Christians). The orthodox preachers wear a kind of toga and a cylindrical cap on their head. Churches in Greece have domed towers. In Greece there are pubs in which they play traditional Greek music and dance. There are some differences between their dancing and music with respect to Spanish. Page 9
  10. 10. PORTUGAL CHRONICLES It was the eighth of November. We woke up very early and we went to Barajas’ airport and waited our plane. One hour later we were in Lisbon. The journey was a little bit boring but I became happier when the plane assistant gave us free food! In Lisbon we visited a huge garden with a lot of people selling nuts. We had dinner at the “Hard Rock Café”. This place is an amazing and huge restaurant and it has a lot of guitars hanging on the walls This day we met the peo- ple that was going to share a part of his life with us, it was an astonishing experience. We stayed at the hotel that night and the following day at 11 o’clock we caught a bus that picked us up to Leiria, the village where we were going to stay for a few days. I don’t remember the name of the school, the name was too long for my mind… Page 10
  11. 11. PORTUGAL CHRONICLES There, the timetable was differ- ent, they had 5 hours at school and 30 minutes of break between each subject. Every break we played computer games at the coffe shop, it was amazing, each pupil had a laptop! The people there was very friendly and my “mother” every day bought sweets for me. We went several times out of the city, for example to the beach. The last day we went to the bowling, I think it was the best day of the trip! I have learnt a lot of things in this journey, for example, the im- portante of travelling abroad because is an amazing experience that will help you to speak Englisk fluently and to make a lot of fantastic friends who I won’t ever forget!
