8:00 Today is the day. we're going to Canterbury. I have packed every thing. I think? I hope so. If I forgot something i would be in trouble. Mabye I check. I have in my suitecase my clothes, my toiletries, my UK adapter, snacks, towel, ... I need to go. My father is calling me 'We need to go!'
11:30 I'm sitting in a restaurant. And yes i have evrything with me. the bustravel is now going well. Next to me are sitting my friends.
I : Noelle try to say this please!
Noelle: Only if you guys aren’t filming it.
Nikya: Why not?
Noelle: Because I get nervous.
I: Oke, we won’t
Nikya and I secretly filming Noelle
Noelle: Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked
I: No how can you say those things so fast?
It’s almost time to go back to the bus. We still have a long ride ahead of us. A really boring and long ride. But with friends with you not that boring anymore. We’re almost in Belgium. I’m still so nervous. You never know how those things go. 5 days for home with your class. Sleeping by a host family. Noelle and I are with each other in the host family. I hope they’re nice. But you never know. Maybe they’re are old and don’t like children, but that wouldn’t make sense. Why would they be a host family then?
18:00 We’re waiting for our host families. The bus was early so we just enjoy the view. It’s beautiful. The sea and the air are perfectly blue. Expect our group is there nobody. Just looking at the sea make me calm. Around me are my classmates laughing. I think everyone is nervous, but we don’t want to show it to each other. Nikya and Laura are called. Their family is there. We say goodbye. The we get called. Our family is there.
21:30 I’m lucky. We have a really friendly family. Their names are Matthew and down. They have a daughter named Laura, but we haven't seen her yet. They also have a dog named Smokye (he is so cute) and a lizard name Scibbo ( I think it, I don't remember it that well). We talk for like two hours about every thing. From being a host family to our lives at home. Now I’m in my room with Noelle. We have a bunk bed. The food wasn’t super good but it was edible. This I for now the only thing that’s bad. I think we’re lucky. It could been worse. Rachel and Jamie are texting me. They have a really bad family. The food was disgusting and the fight a lot. Yes, I think we’re very lucky.
20:00 The castle was beautiful. On the top we had our lunch. A lot of people were there. My friends and I had a lot of fun taking pictures. In other words I had a great time. But the best thing was the walk on the white cliffs of Dover. We walked something like an hour to the South Foreland Lighthouse. The view was so wonderful. Some of the parts were a little bit scary because we walked so close to the edge. But the sea, the cliffs, the sky and just everything had something beautiful. I hope that I can come back someday. It is so stunning (I think I’m repeating myself). At the South Foreland Lighthouse we had some time to relax. After about an hour or more we went back to the bus and back to the meeting point. All in all I was an amazing day.

20:30 Last day in Canterbury. With this in my mind I woke up and started the day. First we had a walk on the beach. It was very sunny what was bad for me because yesterday I got a sunburn. I doesn’t hurt but the sun makes it worse.
Then we had lunch. This time in a pub. I think it was horrible. I had a tasteless bun with a dry beef burger and I had soft fries. However I didn’t had the worse. Some other people had something else and that looked even more horrible.
When we were done with eating we went to the Canterbury cathedral. As assignment we had to take pictures of things. Rachel and I needed to make pictures of the stained glass windows. They were beautiful. Nikya and Jamie made pictures of the ceiling. We were in a room and nobody except I, Nikya, Jamie and Rachel were there. Because it was difficult to make a good photo of the ceiling Nikya was lying on the ground. Now she had to chance to make a great photo. Then Rachel and I decided that we wanted to make a picture of her like this. So we did. Then I made a photo of Rachel making a picture of Nikya while she was maikg a photo of the ceiling.
