From 10th to 15th of March we went on school trip to Barcelona in Spain.
We were about one hundred students from all the courses of our school: Opticians, Dental Technicians, Fashion designers, Mechanical and Electronical-electrical skilled workers and Social operators.
It was an amazing time! We visited Barcelona, Barceloneta and Llioner de Mar and enjoyed getting around with our friends all the time. Even the teachers were funny and nice out of the classroom!
We did a lot of sightseeing in Barcelona, we didn’t want to miss out on anything. We visited The Sacrada Familia and some museums, we especially liked the Salvador Dalì collection!
As would-be opticians we were fascinated by Etnia, a huge optic store with five floors for eyewear and contact lenses sale, including a fully equipped laboratory and a panoramic lounge bar.
The ship journey was really exciting because of the Travel Game, a competition for artistic talents: the winner was Vito Franco, one of the students of the optician course, who performed as a brilliant beatboxer.
Unfortunately on our way back we all felt seasick, but we faced the situation keeping our sense of humour!
This trip has been a unique experience for us: we learnt about different lifestyles, mentalities, customs and professional activities.
Barcelona, we’ll never forget you!
