I think my best scool time was during my stay in Netherlands where I and my schoolmates spent three weeks. Our stay started on March 13th and it lasted until April 3rd 2003.


Our journey started at the airport in Kosice. From here we flew to Prague and we had to wait for our next plane four hours. When we arrived in Amsterdam we were charmed by that huge airport. Then we had to travel by train to the city where our Holland school partners waited for us. The city of our stay is called Stadskanaal.


It was late evening when we came to the camp . We were so tired that we went to bed immediately.The camp was a sport centre with reception, swimming pool and tennis courts. Our friends came for us and we joined them for visiting their school and then we were officially welcomed by some local authorities. The same day we had also some lessons of Dutch language. The next day was free for us so we went to the city and went for sightseeing.


Everyday instead of weekends we had to travel to Groningen where we worked in the University of Groningen. Every Saturday we had a trip to some factory or a historical or cultural place. We enjoyed the North Sea near the German borders. The same day we went to Germany to visit a big ship factory.


We were amazed by Amsterdam, by historical places like the old fortress, by old villages and of course by Dutch people who were very kind. It was nice to spend some time abroad in a quite different country. Me and my 8 schoolmates are often talking about that great time and we will never forget it.
