Auf Wiedersehen Köln….bis nächstes jahr

We woke up at 7pm and tidied our rooms, then we went down for our last German breakfast before boarding the coach. Pupils adorned fancy new leggings from the market and tried to pack the mass of chocolate they had bought for presents carefully into their suitcases!

Disco fever!

After a busy day at the zoo and Aqualand, Fairlands pupils strutted their stuff on the dance floor with Mr Fear and Mr Cooling as the DJ’S, and Mr Grant as the Bouncer!

Schönen Schokoladen Tag!

Ich bin ganz froh daß ihr eine gute Reise gestern gehabt habt und bin sicher daß ihr alle gut geschlafen habt. Ich bin traurig nicht mit euch zu sein, aber hoffe daß ihr alle die Weihnachtsmärkte genießt und viele Schokolade heut’ morgen gegessen habt! Habt ihr Schnee in Köln? Hier ist es ganz grau und regnet. Grüße aus Fairlands! Schönen Tag noch, Frau Trinel ” o )

I’m very glad you had a good journey yesterday and am sure you all slept well last night. I’m sad not to be with you, but hope you are all enjoying the Christmas markets and ate lots of chocolate this morning! Is it snowing in Cologne? It’s very grey and rainy here. Wishes from Fairlands! Have a good day, Mrs Trinel

Arrival in Germany

We have arrived – all safe and sound. Long journey but no hitches.
The children have been wonderfully positive and extremely well behaved.
The hostel seems to be great. We are an hour ahead – so it is 5:20pm and dinner is at 6 or 6:15 – two sittings!
I am sure I will be able to share some pictures at some stage, maybe later this evening – though more likely tomorrow morning!
Looking forward to getting out into the frosty streets after some dinner.

Schnee und Regen!

I reiterate Mr Elmy’s comment…it looks like snow in Köln tomorrow and may be showery over the weekend so get your mittens and raincoats out ready to pack.
