I travelled to Trebíc in May of 2010 to take part in a drama comenius project. As it was my first one, I was really excited. The comenius project started in the October of 2009 when Czech Republic students came to my secondary school so that we could meet the students we'd be working with when we went over there.

When we first travelled to the Czech Republic, we took a plane to Prague. As we'd gotten there late, we planned to stay in a hostel overnight. Myself and my friend who was planned to be my roommate had to take a separate taxi to the hostel as there were no spaces left on the mini bus that everyone else was on. That night in the hostel was so terrifying as it was a foreign place, in a hostel, nighttime and we were 13. There were four lots of bunk beds in our dorm and 4 of us in the dorm. We ended up being too scared, and top and tailed in one bunk bed.

The next morning we travelled on a mini bus (everyone on the same one this time!) for about 3 to 4 hours, right across the country and finally to Trebíc. Imagine some old little town thats all Jewish-y and cobbled and has individual little shops. That is Trebíc. Hardly any tourists go there as it's not a tourist place therefore we stayed in the only hotel there was called the Grand Hotel. You can imagine how relieved we were that it was a hotel and not a hostel.

The hotel was rather beautiful. We all raced up the stairs after the check in to pick out our rooms. Over the next couple of days, we rehearsed for our plays, went to a Czech school and lived out the whole Czech lifestyle. I must say, I loved the food and the culture, but I wouldn't be able to live there as i'm too much of a big city girl.

On the last day, we all travelled back to Prague where we shopped for the day. A few friends and I visited a wax works museum where there was Harry Potter and Adolf Hilter. The teachers that accompanied us on the trip ended up shouting at us because we bought hoodies that said 'Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go to Prague.' We were 13, and didn't know the proper meaning HAHA!

We went to a castle in Prague which was one of the most amazing places i've ever been to purely because of the history. I walked through the gates were the Nazi Germans walked to take over the Czech Slovakia. To do this though I had to climb thousands of steps which can be seen on the 'Never Tear Us Apart' music video. Oh, I love INXS. Okay shh, back to holiday! :D

After about 6 days in Czech Republic, we finally headed to the airport to go home on an 8 O' Clock flight. No. Delayed until 2 am. It was one of the longest waits I've ever done. Eventually, we got on the plane and returned home to Liverpool where my dad was waiting to pick me up.

I absolutely loved going to Trebíc and Prague and found it was one of the best trips i've ever been on because I learnt so much about making lasting friends, diving into new cultures and embracing it as I did! I really hope to take other people back there some day so that I can show them how going to some random little place in the Czech Republic can be an amazing trip.
