"First come first served!" said Mrs. Ambridge, our English teacher. I was so motivated to go to Lesigny that I was one of the first students to hand in the cheque and the completed forms. The hardest part was done; my place was secured. It was going to be my very first trip with L'Ermitage. I felt extremely privileged and excited about it.
On the bus, on our way to Lesigny, I was so overjoyed that my imagination was running riot. I could not wait anymore...
When we arrived in Lesigny, we were warmly welcomed by our hosts, all dressed in blue. The park was huge and quite impressive, ideal for energetic and active teenagers like us!
In our free time, we played basketball, football, handball and had other fun activities such as archery, abseiling, rock climbing, tennis and ping-pong.
A few months before the trip, each student from l'Ermitage going to Lesigny, received the contact details of a student from Ringwood school (England). Emails were exchanged between the students of both schools. It was amusing to meet my pen friend face to face, at long last.
No need to say that I made new friends there; the Ringwood students were all nice and friendly.
We even visited the local market and Carrefour with them!
Lesigny was and will always be a fun experience, a place where action and multi-activity adventures are on top of the list.
Last but not least, I would like to express a huge thank you all the teachers who organised everything, accompanied us in this amazing trip and who made this weekend come true.
