Wangzuoyi Q., 8D1: The outdoor weekend of class 8 was partly exhausting, but it was also a great experience. We met at the Stockacher Tor on Saturday morning. After a short bus ride, we were divided into three groups and walked to a campsite near Lake Illmensee. The walk was more strenuous than expected. The paths that we should have followed according to the map were overgrown and so we orientated ourselves with the help of a compass.
When we arrived, after a short break, we were shown how to set up the tents. Some of us needed help, others managed on their own. After all the tents were up, we cooked our own food. I was very excited, because I didn't know that simple spaghetti with pesto tasted so delicious. Maybe it was also because I was very hungry. After the delicious dinner, we did the dishes and had pudding for dessert. We sat around the campfire together and roasted marshmallows. All in all, it was a nice day and a fun and cosy evening.
The next day, after our breakfast (there was a variety of cereals), we packed our lunches and were divided into new groups. Then we set off in the direction of Salem Castle. We could see beautiful landscapes and it was a great feeling to be back in Salem. We were all exhausted, but it was still a wonderful and fun experience.
