It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I’m only now finding a chance to write about it! On Tues 17th April, I flew out to Frankfurt in Germany… (This narrative will be highly illustrated by photos)
I was staying in Bad Vilbel, outside Frankfurt, for two nights while I visited the Europäische Schule RheinMain. On my first evening, I went for a little wander in the local area.
And so on to the Europäische Schule, where I talked to three large groups of students, from 8 to 14, under the banner SPRING CONCERT, which unfortunately had a sticking problem, and so by the end of the day, it said PRING CONC RT which I found ridiculously funny…
That evening, the lovely librarians Renate and Ute took me out for a yummy dinner, and then I fell into bed! The next morning I caught the ICE train from Frankfurt to Berlin.
On arrival in Berlin, another lovely librarian Gordana (whom I knew from when she was at Didcot Girls’ School, my patron of reading school!) took me on a walking tour of the city.
The next day I had a fantastic time at the Berlin International School, giving a talk and a workshop and also being interviewed by school journalists.
After a full day at the school, I went to Berlin airport and caught my flight home. Whilst trying to decide what kind of sandwich to have for my dinner, this caught my eye…
All went smoothly (despite some organisational hiccups before the trip!) and I’d like to say a big thank you to Renate and Gordana for looking after me and providing me with such brilliant students 🙂
