I went to Aachen and back on the coach in one day – approximately sixteen hours of travel. Can anyone beat that?
north of the tyne: kielder, the coast, a tour of st. james grounds. walked to walker riverside and the quayside a few times.
there was a trip to a nature reserve near boro that i missed because i was in hospital
as if the coast is as far away as kielder
kielder was the furthest trip.
at least spell it correctly
Aisle of White
One of the most amazing experiences of my life.
(couple of hours from Calais)
No idea where.
there were rich kid ski trips to america and france and places like that but i didn't participate
on a fucking bus
all the way from the Isle of WIGHT
Think it was around 20 hours. Fucking hell.
or soemwhere in Norfolk I think. from Suffolk. neither were very far.
My only good school trip story is the time I was going to go to Sizewell B nuclear power station, but the teachers wouldn't let me, said I "couldn't be trusted". I was 12. had to stay behind in the art classroom all day while the rest of the year went without me.
pretty weird that really.
the boys did a full monty performance in their rooms for the girls and the vending machine in the hostel/hotel had naked lady lighters
with an overnight stop in Aachen.
Also did a coach trip to Berlin, don't know if that's further. They were some looooong days, especially when you're hepped up on massive bags of Haribo.
which is an obvious cue for the giant marker-penned penis on the face
We went to see the polar bear, and he was dead.
They had a cardboard cutout of him in the polar bear enclosure instead.
Paul was sick on the bus home and it fucking stunk.
on my first trip to edinburgh zoo (been twice in my life) my mam made my dad keep me near the penguins because a monkey hanged itself
(on the Isle of Wight?
At least 70% of the oeople on the trip went down with some sort of stomach bug over the course of the 5 days so my abiding memory of that was the sound of a hell of a lot of kids chundering.
i think i actually paid for it myself? i cant remember. It was when i was doing classics at AS-level (6th form, not posh fuck off).
This is gonna bug me for ages now.
From Sheffield. Bout 4 hours on the coach. Geography field trip. Darren vommed after eating 4 Mars bars. Twat.
Boring as fuck.
The jumpy pages are really pissing me off...
to see the concentration camps and stuff
for a theatre competition
The one in Paris. Seemed to go on forever. Got served booze in a Hard Rock Cafe, one queit Korean kid went missing and was found sipping whisky in a bar, another kid was told a rumour that sniffer dogs would be on the bus so ate his stash of hash. Happy days. Moon Safari by Air was about the only tape I had on that trip, it still reminds me of it.
