Art, Design and Literature Trip

date:Dec 03,2013 source:意腾留学网 editorial staff:linan clicks:

In July sixteen students, along with Mr Humber and Ms Drummond, took part in the trip of a lifetime visiting iconic places around the world related to their CIE studies. We left on a cold, wintery Auckland afternoon and after a 16 hour flight arrived in the sweltering heat of Dubai. To escape the heat and nurse our jetlag, we spent the first day at Aquaventure Water Park on the Atlantis Palm where we all enjoyed thrilling water rides, relaxed by the pools and burnt our feet. Ms Drummond’s fear of heights was tested the next day s we took the 60-second elevator ride up 163 floors to the viewing deck of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. And of course, you can’t visit Dubai without camel riding in the desert – anawesome experience, even in 45 degree emperatures!

Our next stop was Paris. The city is eautiful and we spent many hours exploring he highlights, from the Eiffel Tower to he Louvre to Euro Disney. We wandered through Paris streets to Notre Dame, many of us adding locks to the famous Pont des Artes on the way, and spent an evening at the amazing Moulin Rouge. Being teenagers, the local food was also a highlight: macaroons, croissants, pastries and escargots. A short Eurostar train ride took us to London where we visited St Paul’s Cathedral,Buckingham Palace (waiting for the royal baby to arrive), Big Ben, the Globe Theatre,the Tower of London (the Crown Jewels were worth the 2 hour queue) the London Eye (amazing views) and the London Dungeons (an afternoon of horror and embarrassing photos!). Day trips took us out of London to spend a day in the quaint city of Bath, where we explored the Roman baths and enjoyed a traditional Devonshire cream tea, and to Hampton Court Palace,home of Henry VIII.

Window shopping at Harrods and picnicking in Kensington Park were also highlights of the London experience. And a trip to London wouldn’t be complete without a show, so we were fortunate to spend an evening in the West End watching the Lion King, a real treat with its amazing props, costumes and songs. Anunfortunate double booking left us in need of a place to stay on our last night so we had no choice but to stay in the fabulous five star Sofitel where we woke up refreshed and ready for our flight to NYC.New York City, the Big Apple, and what acontrast this was to London. We all became‘New Yorkers’ for our stay, doing everything NY has to offer: Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Starbucks, The High Line, Giant Pizza, Empire State Building, Hard Rock Café, Central Park, NY Delis, The Metand, for the girls, Victoria’s Secret. We alsomanaged to squeeze in a Broadway show (Phantom of the Opera), a visit to Madame Tussaud’s wax museum and a just little bit of shopping. And of course, we couldn’t leave New York without seeing some baseball so on the last night we headed off to a Mets game. It was sad to get on the plane and embark on the long flight home but we all have great memories of all that we saw and experienced and appreciate what a privilege it was to be part of a well-organised, exciting, fun, educational trip of a lifetime- and the memories will last forever.
