Madrid trip 2013-14




On the 25th of October, 30 students of Spanish set off bright and early for a five day trip to Madrid. To the delight of the sporting fans, they toured both the Bernabeu and the Calderón stadia. Sunday was a fun-packed day, starting off with a day of rollercoasters and heart-stopping rides in the Warner Brothers Theme Park. After dark it was off to the Calderon Stadium again to watch the Betis v Atlético de Madrid match.
Other highlights included the tour of the Palacio Real, the Botanic Gardens and negotiating the Metro and Bus systems.
Students got the opportunity to discover Spain's gastronomy with a challenge to taste the most exotic dishes they could find, and order!. Five full days in this beautiful capital city absorbing all things Spanish was a valuable and memorable experience for all involved.
