Skvělé prázdniny ve Velké Británii
It really was the most interesting holidays I've ever had. I saw so many new things! Sorry, I haven't introduced myself yet. I'm Ondrej, an ordinary high-school student. I love arts, music and of course English. Why have I taken up to English? I spent the whole my holidays in England and now I know that English is for me something different than just a school subject, now I don't study becouse of marks but the pure reason is yearn to speak with real people and to be able to live in other countries. Please let me show you some photos from my three months in Great Britain.
1) Little Massingham, Norfolk
In this tiny village which is situated in Nelson's Couty, Norfolk I spent almost three moths of my life. I met new people learnt new skills and had great time. I think I can say I've fallen in love. With England. I especially love pure English countryside as you can find in agricultural Norfolk.
2) Keith and the bees, Flitcham, Norfolk
In this lovely place we had bees. Keith is comercional beekeeper who owns perhaps 200 hives. He is a regional bee inspector as well but firstly he is a good man and my friend. I was surprised how good deal of game there was - small rabbits, hares, pheasants, partridges... I would be happy to have them here in Czech Republic as well.
3) Farmers Market Pimlico, London
We went to farmer's markets in London every other week. It was great experience for me. I was selling honey, eggs and sometimes some fruit from our farm. I've experienced a lot places but Pimlico Market, which is situated on Orange Square near Buckingham Palace, I like the best. Maybe because there is a statue of young Mozart who used to live there.
4) National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London
My favourite place in London. I met some French who were on the farm so we were taking the mickey out of them all the time. I'm not a kind of person influenced by national stereotypes but that they are called ?garlic eaten surrender monkeys" was probably the best joke I've ever heard. Why do I write this? Because on Trafalgar Square there is the statue of Admiral Nelson who beat them! But what is so unique on this famous place? Definitely National Gallery. I spent 6 hours there! I was fascinated when I saw DaVinci Cartoon and other glorious paintings.
5) Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, London
Big Ben - maybe the most famous towerclocks in the world and one of the symbols of London.
6) St. James Park, London
I was captivated by London's parks. There is great deal of animals, birds, swans, and ducks. I saw one squirrel which climbed on one guy's leg for biscuit!
7) Tower Bridge, London
Tower Bridge is the first sight I saw in London. We used to live near this place every 3rd week in B&B when we had farmer's markets both on Saturday and Sunday.
8) Piccadilly Circus, London
I love London but when the sun goes down and all lights are switched on London is very different, simply astounding. I used to walk around river Thames and through the city till midnight and these experiences are unforgettable.
9) Moving bees to the heather, Yorkshire
In August we moved about 60 hives to Yorkshire moors. We slept in the tent up on the moors in the middle of nowhere. We came at night and we saw nothing. What a surprise in the morning! When we woke up and I left the tent I saw different world: neverending moors, hills, red heather and blue sky ... only one farm and a flocks of sheep.
10) River Lamas, Buxton, Norfolk
It was my last day in England and Keith took me to this river. The temperature was 15 degrees and the water wasn't very warm but I swam there more than an hour! The small point in the water is my head.
P.S. Hoping you've enjoyed reading about my ?Happy Memories " from South England.
