Saturday – good bye Strážnice

Saturday morning started very early for us. It was hard to get up after only four hours of sleep;  many of us had been celebrating for very long. At seven o’clock we met the other students at the train station in Strážnice. We made some last photos and had to say good bye. It was really emotional and it was sad that we didn’t have enough time to give all students a big hug. During the farewell there were a lot of tears but when we almost missed the train the mood changed very quickly to a good level again. Even though we were very sad, we were looking forward to seeing our family again. And the thought that we could soon be having a normal shower, standing upright, instead of kneeling in the bathtub, comforted us a lot.

The song „Heiweh nach de Berge, nach de Schoggi und em Wii“ accompanied us on the way back home.  We made some stopovers in the cities of Hodinin, Vienna and Innsbruck. During those stops we were glad to stretch our legs and to explore the train stations.

On the rides we spent our time with singing, talking, listening to music, playing (stupid – editors’ note) computer games and with watching movies. On the way we saw that the landscapes of the Czech Republic and Austria are totally different and that was interesting for all of us.

It was a beautiful time together with all the students and the teachers.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET THIS TIME!

Friday – sports, quiz and farewell party

On our last day in Strážnice we all got surprised by heavy rain. Until this morning we thought that it would always be sunny in Czech Republic. 

For the today’s program we got split up into groups of four students. Half of the groups started with a quiz about Switzerland and the Czech Republic and the other half played a floorball tournament.

The questions of the quiz were distributed in the whole school building and the students had to go and find and answer them. It was quite tricky to find all the questions in this big school building. But luckily, all worked out well in the end.

Action was guaranteed in the school gym! We all had a lot of fun playing against each other. Some of us got really ambitious. Luckily, this time there were no serious injuries except for a few bruises.

In the afternoon we did some last activities in our families. Of course we were all looking forward to the farewell party in the evening. We got invited to a nice restaurant for dinner. The Schnitzel and the Smažený sýr (fried cheese) were delicious and so was the home made Štrůdl.
