Neuschwanstein Castle

Today we went to Neuschwanstein. It was like a fairy tale castle. It was so cool

Neuschwanstein Castle was built for King Ludwig the second in the late 1800s.

King Ludwig liked swans and books

Some interesting rooms we saw were his bedroom because the wall paintings is a religios story.

Did you know that Disney is inspired by the castle and Disney stole the castle picture for Disneyland.

Today we went to Bratislava and stayed there. Its in Slovakia. We are going to come back here because its so nice. 

We had a full day to have a wonder around town and saw the castle and the church here is some pictures.

This is the water fountain at the centre of town.

This is the blue church looks and it looks like its covered in marzipan or looks like a wedding cake.

Magic flute

 Today we went to see the magic flute. It is an Opera by Mozart. It was based on a prince who was hunting and was attacked by a serpent in the forest, and some witches came to save him and told him to go rescue a princess that was in a place were there was a evil man,and gave him a photo of the princess and he fell in love with the princess and set off to find her.

When he went to get the princess he found out that the person he thought that was evil was actually nice.

Instead of people. there were marionettes. it was really well done.  the singing was all in German so it was hard to understand sometimes what was going on but we got the general idea of it.

I liked the song that the queen of the night sings. Its the highest notes song anyone can sing.

The LongBow at Warwick castle

Today we went to Warwick Castle. We learned about the Longbow and the story of how it was invented.  

The story of the longbow is that one ordinary day for the knights just walking in the woods and one of them tripped on a stick,and so everyone was laughing at him so he tried to break the stick but couldn't,so the rest just left him there so he thought  "maybe I'll teach him a lesson" so he got some string and a sharp stick and shot and said " DID YOU SEE THAT!!!" and the other knight said "YES BECAUSE IT'S IN MY BUTT!!!". I love that story because the archer made it sound even more funnier.

The archer was very good at explaining how to shoot the arrow. He also told us what to do if you got shot with an arrow. There was lots of blood and guts.

"The Tempest" at Minack Theatre

 Today we went to Minack Theatre. Minack Theatre is a play theatre that was carved into a cliff that's overlooking the sea. We went to watch a William Shakespeare play called THE TEMPEST.

It had a lot of hard words in it but I liked it becuase there were fairies in it. The fairies came into the audience and waved to us. They also danced and sang.

There was a beautiful princess who lived by herself and she fell in love.

It was a good story

English lesson at The Jamaica Inn, Bodmin, Cornwall

Mum makes sure we learn stuff every day no matter where or what we do.

We looked at different sayings today.

If something 'graces' a wall it means to make it beautiful on the wall.

A wolf in sheeps clothing means someone is not what they look like they are. Like if you were a wolf and you disguise yourself as a sheep and imagined you were part of the flock and when the time came you would attack.

We saw that the Vicar was a wolf in sheeps clothing on an explanation about him in the Jamaica Inn Story. He was called that because he is a vicar and they are normally kind and follow the law. But he used to kill people.

Smuggling at The Jamaica Inn, Bodmin, Cornwall

Today we visited the jamaica inn. We visited the smuggler museum. Smuggling is when there is really sneaky people who sneak drugs and jewellery into different countries, so they don't have to pay taxes to the government to keep the jewellery or drugs. Drugs are illegal in most countries and are bad.

Here is a page in a small bible that is cut out in the middle, and in it is a very fancy stolen bracelet which was being attempted to take into a country.

Here is a special smuggler hat to sneak drugs in. She had 3 kg of hashish on her head.

This is a oil tin that they put the thins they were smuggling in the bottom and the top was oil.
