Intercultural Exchange in Bushmills
On March 26, a group of 60 students from Catalonia (Spain) were coming to visit Bushmills to spend a 5 holiday period in this marvellous place. Manja (German), Elowise (Belgium), Dino (Belfast) and Arantza (Spain) were also there as volunteers.
We met on Bushmills International Hostel at 8 p.m. and after placing all the people in their bedrooms we went to dinner.
On Tuesday, we did a tour guide in all Bushmills with Elowise and Arantza. While one group was doing this, the other group was playing to some games with Dino and Manja.
After having a good meal, we continue the day in two groups. The first group was enjoying with Manja and Dino playing to some games and the other group was painting some of the Finn Mc Cool’s paintings.
Then, we met with the Irish guys, and we play some games with those and the Spanish guys to know each other.
After having free time we enjoy about the typical local food with the Irish and Spanish.
On Wednesday, we split them in two groups. While one group was enjoying madding a challenge, the other group was visiting the amazing Carrick-a-rede witch is a suspension bridge placed in Ballintoy's surroundings, Antrim's county, Northern Ireland. Between the both activities we had a packet lunch in the Youth, Bushmills Education Centre. We went to dinner and we enjoy about the typical local food with the Irish and Spanish guys.
On Thursday, all the people went to enjoy with the spectacular Giant’s Causeway. After having a packed lunch, we went shopping to Colerain, which is a large town near the mouth of the River Bann in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland.
To dinner, every people prepare some of the best meals of their countries, and then we ate it.
On Friday, we wake up earlier to visit the incredible Belfast. We spend the time in shopping and visiting the city hall.
We spend 5 unbelievable days in Bushmills and all the places we’d visited. Thank you very much for the teachers for helping us, thank you to the Catalan people (we enjoyed a lot with all of you), thank you also to all the Irish people (without you it wouldn’t be the same).
And finally, thanks to the whole people who have worked to everything be OK.
