Off To England - Liam
We left our house to get the taxi at 8:30, luckily there was no traffic, so it was a quick drive, we arrived at the airpot around 9:00,right when we got there we went through security and got a drink, by then it was around 9:30. We sat down for about thirty minutes waiting, then had to move gates which luckilly was right next door to one we were in.
Finally when it was time to board the plane, our grandma went first because disabled got to go to the front of the line, then we followed after when they called our seat number.
When we got on plane, there were no tv's on the seats, but there were tv's that came down from the ceiling, and it was smaller than i thought it would be. I watched the tv from the cieling for a bit, which was playing adventure island, then i fell asleep before the movie ended.
I woke up at god knows what time, just when we were flying over ireland, we looked out the window to see the clouds huvering over every where in great britain we could see.
half an hour later we started lowering down through the clowds into green fields, brick housed villages and some cities. After sevem hours of flying, we touched down in Manchester, England. It was cloudy, cold and verry green, i was expecting it to be warmer than the plain that was being air condisioned while it was -44 degrees celcius outside the plane in the air. But no!
When we got off the plane we went through customs, got our lugage and then got a taxi to our aunt's house, who we would be staying with for a couple days.
When we got there, the olympics was on, so we watched some of that, then we had one of the best lasaugnas I have ever had. After dinner, my dad my aunt ann, and i went for a walk on a path that three hundred years ago was a train path. After our walk we went back to her house and went to sleep. The next morning we got up and watched more olympics, then went on a drive through the country side, and little villages, we got some homemade ice cream at a little store and ate in the rain, then went back, for dinner we had real british fish and chips, then went to sleep.
The next day we went down town burry, which is were she lives, it is a town close to Manchester. We went shopping, and went to historic places, then we went to a place to eat, after that we caught the bus back, had dinner, and then went to sleep.
The next morning we left to the train station in Manchester to catch a train to London. On the train, we were going to fast to see most of the stuff, but we saw some castles, and cannal boats on the cannal. The ride was only two hours, then we arived in london. We got a taxi to the our new house we would be staying in for two weeks, and made sure the keys worked, and we were in our house, but we still had to get in our appartment, we werent sure wich one was ours, we had number three, but the doors didnt have numbers, finally we found our's, and it was the whole second floor.
That day we just relaxed, and then went out for dinner to a pub, we were there for about an hour and a half then went to the grocery store, and then back home, and went to bed.
The next day we went down town london, and went to many famous places, we went to traffalga square, so you might have seen us on the news, then we saw big ben, which was alot bigger then I was expecting.
For lunch we went to a canadian restaurante caled the maple leaf, and then we left to go explore more. We went acrross a bridge, and were able to see the eye big ben, the shard, st mary axe, and other places. When we got to the other side of the bridge, we realised i had forgotten my soccer ball, so we went back, and surprisingly, it was there.
We werent sure what to to, so we walked to the shard (new tallest sky scraper in Europe) because my brother wanted to see it and on the way we saw the first public building in the world to be run by electricity, and we saw westminster palace, well the remains of it. after all that we got the underground (subway)back to our place, and spent the rest of the night there, my dad found a startreck movie so we watched that, and then we went to sleep.
Yes, im done, finally, after all this time righting for you people, im finally done, now good bye, i must go watch the olympics.
