THE TRIP TO OBERTSHAUSEN-FRANKFURT First of all of our group were excited about travelling to Germany .Because most of us ıt was the fırst time we were travelling to GERMANY.Because we have so many Turkish families in that country and our students wanted to meet their friends who came to Turkey last year. We travelled to Izmir bye bus and then we flew to Frankfurt airport happily and excitedly.Our colleagues Thomas and Hilde met us at the aırport and we all went to the school by train.As soon as we arrived at school our students went to their host families with their German friends. On the fırst day of the project actıvıty we had a meeting at the school what actıvities we wouıl carry out during the project .After we had lucnh at school altogether the students and the teachers went to see some buildings and monuments in groups ın the neighbourhood.We studıed on a building that was a slaughterhouse in the past but now ıt s a hotel.The following morning students tried to get some more information about the monuments and buildings which they saw the day before.At the end of the day teachers ate dınner at a restaurant altogether.

On Sunday it was off day for the students and the teachers but teachers went to see the city Hanau .The next day we travelled to TRİER city where we saw Roman BATHS that were never used as baths because the Roman Empire left the city early before finishing the construction the baths.Some parts of the baths were underground . Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand on the last day the students completed their studies and presented them in a big presentation room at school. It was time to leave Obertshausen to set off for our hometown.OF COURSE leaving their friends was very dificult for the students we took photos and gave gifts to each other .

These windmills are very famous because of the well known writer Cervantes’s novel, “Don Quijote” is known all over the world. Toledo is an important city in Spain because it has a history of Muslim, Christian and Jewish. We saw the gates of old city that one of them for Muslim, the other one is Christian.
