Our pleasant class trip to Lake Eder
We all met at the school entrance and talked to each other. Then the coach came and the driver took our luggage and put it in the base of the coach. After that, we all chose a place to sit. The coach started the engine and we were off. Everyone was excited. After three hours, we finally arrived. A woman told us the house rules. We walked to a jetty and were driven with a boat to the other side of the lake. Then we walked to a tree top walk while answering questions from a sheet of paper. Afterwards we went back to the summerhouse. We received our bedsheets and went to our rooms. The boys were in the yellow and green part of the building and the girls were in the blue and red part of the building. We all went to the restaurant and the chef told us were everything was kept. On that day we ate pasta with different sauces. As dessert we had a strawberry yogurt. We went back after the dessert. We played outside but some people stayed inside. In the evening we had one last chat and at nine o´clock everybody went to their rooms; however we all were still wide awake and talking loudly. We had to go to bed at ten p.m., but it was loud until ´midnight. That day was one of the most exciting days of the trip.
Mrs. Tschäbunin woke us at 7 a.m. We were tired. Then we changed our clothes and went to breakfast. We were hungry. There was a lot of food. Everyone talked with his or her friends. We made our packed lunches. It was funny because we talked about funny themes. Then we went back to our rooms and packed our bags. After that, we went to the bridge. We were excited because it was the first time of sailing.
We learned to assemble the sail, to steer the boat and to be on a boat without a teacher. Then we had a break in the sailing school. We played, we bought ice cream and we ate our packed lunches. After the break we had to learn some theoretics in the sailing school. We learned some rules for sailing and some other things, but it was boring for us.
After sailing we went back to the housing. Then we had some time to change our clothes and to do other things. After that we went to dinner. We were hungry. There was fish and steak for dinner. The food was very tasty. Then we went back to the housing and we played games or talked and we had fun.
At 9 p.m. we were ready to go to bed and we were in our bedrooms. Then we did something quiet in our rooms. We weren’t tired. At 10 p.m. we went to bed and slept.
In the morning Mrs. Tschäbunin woke us at seven o‘clock. We got dressed and everyone went to breakfast. After we ate, we could still play outside. Then we went back to the hostel. We packet our packed lunch in our backpacks and brushed our teeth. At nine o‘clock the hiking group walked away, to one side of the dam. When we arrived we took a little break and ate our packed lunch. When we finished eating, we went to the dam. On the way there, we kept on meeting other people and said ”moin“; they answered back with ”hello“.
Then we went to the city center and dipped our feet into a well while eating ice cream. In the end, we went to the bus and drove back. During that time, they formed sailing groups and had been sailing all the time. When we were at the hostel at about 3 p.m., we all took a shower. Then there was dinner at 6 p.m. There was meat with rice or chips. After dinner, we went back to the hostel. We played, talked and phoned the parents. After that, we met the boys in the Kajüte. The Kajüte is a room to meet. At about 8 p.m. we were ready for bed. We brushed our teeth and put on our pajamas on. At 9 p.m., Mrs. Tschäbunin came in and looked if we were in bed. She told us to turn off the lights at 10 p.m. Then we still talked and fell asleep.
It was a warm, sunny morning at our house and the teachers woke us up at 7 o’clock a.m. and we got ready for the day. Then we met at 8 o’clock for breakfast in the big room, after that tasty breakfast we made our lunchbox. Before our activities we went back home and packed our backpack. After we packed our stuff, we went down to the pier and drove to the other side of the Edersee. We all met our sailing instructors at the sailing school. The walking group walked a sunny way to the zoo. It was too hot, so a lot of children bought an ice in the shop. At the same time, the sailing group set up their boats, and drove a long hard trip. It was very funny, and some children jumped or fell into the Edersee. The walking group also had lots of fun. They stroked an owl and held it. At our lunch break, we had a Barbeque, and then every group did their activities, or went to playground. In the evening, we went back home and relaxed until the dinner began. After dinner, we called our family and did lots of funny, cool thinks. Some children played together some exiting card games. Then we went to bed.
On Friday, we woke up at seven o´clock, tidied our rooms and made ourselves ready for the day. We went in groups to have breakfast and could choose between different breads and marmalades. We were hungry and enjoyed our breakfast. Afterwards we went back to the summerhouse to take our luggage from our rooms to the ground floor.
Then we walked to the summer toboggan run and had lots of fun. Everyone received two tickets. Some of us received one additional ticket because they did something good during our class trip. Everyone slid twice or three times. Some of us used our money to buy even more tickets.
At one o´clock, our coach came and picked us up from the summer toboggan run to take us back to the summerhouse. There we loaded our entire luggage into the coach and started out trip to Wiesbaden. During the trip we were not allowed to eat on the coach. Our mood was very good; some children were very tired and almost fell asleep.
We had lots of traffic and stood on the highway for a while. Finally, three hours later we arrived back in Wiesbaden. Our families were already waiting for us and we were happy to see them again after 5 days.
We are looking forward to our next class trip.
