Hi Rita! I would like to know which activities we are going to do both days we are travelling to London. Because I was thinking that maybe if there are some places I want to visit and they are not included in these tours, I could travel to London one of the two free afternoons we have (I know, with at least one more person). I would rather plan that in advance that's why I'm asking you this question. Thank you! Carina.

I've JUST received an email, which I"ll copy and paste below:

"Antes entregaban el material de estudio en la escuela, y solo lo tenian mientras estaban alli, ahora se lo pueden llevar fuera del horario de clases y deben abonar un deposito de 25 GBP.
El primer dia les entregaran el libro y les haran firmar unas "condiciones", donde dice que se lo pueden quedar y no se les devolvera el deposito, o lo pueden devolver en iguales condiciones a como fue entregado y se les devuleven los 25 GBP."

OUR LAST MEETING: what was said

This is the summary of what was said during our meeting in November, our last get-together before our trip in January.

Two documents were given out to be completed and taken to the agency, once they're ready:

  • Ficha Medica (to be filled in at home and by the personal doctor)
  • Acta de Responsabilidad Civil (to be signed by an legal authority)
Apart from these two documents, those who are underage should also take these to the agency:
  • permit signed by parents to be able to leave Argentina
  • note written by parents in case they want to go on different tours on their own.
ALL STUDENTS were also reminded that they should have 200 pounds ready to pay to Discovery Tours on the day of arrival. Those who have dollars (not pounds) should change their money as soon as they get to Brighton.

ALL STUDENTS were made to sign a "Codigo de Convivencia", which clearly states the rules that should be complied with during the whole trip.

Still, there is ONE more topic that was NOT dealt with: in our Google Site there are two pages which three of you have not completed: Cambridge and Lewes Castle. Is there a volunteer to post something about these two attractions we will visit together?

When these TWO pages are ready I'll post a QUIZZ, which those who are willing to may complete. Remember there will be a prize for the winner/s !!!!!!

If there are any queries or questions you can always post them here, I'll be happy to answer them ;-)

So right now start completing all your ddocuments and wait until I let you know when you'll have to hand them in to Chateaux.


Monday, 28 November 2011


Hi, dear kids!!!!! We hope you can ALL make it this Wedneday, since many important issues
 will be discussed and arranged. It will probably be our last meeting together, so bring as many queries as you can think of...
And you will be given ALL the documentation you need to be able to board the plane :-)

We look forward to meeting you all!
Silvia and Rita

January 16th

Hi! Rita I've been reading the full programme for England, and I've seen that the first evening free is on the 16th, can't we go to Canterbury that day? Hope is not an inappropriate question.

Friday, 4 November 2011


During our meeting today we spoke about our everyday activities in Brighton, and about the trip to Paris. 


For her cell number, please, contact any of the students who were present (20). 
The FULL programmes for Brighton and Paris have been uploaded to our GOOGLE SITE: see the links in the Sidebar, at the bottom of the page.

Hi, all, mainly those who were absent! We need EVERYBODY to remember to take 80 dollars to the agency BEFORE THURSDAY 6, to be able to BOOK the seats for the musical "The Phantom of the Opera" and the hotel for the night we´ll spend in Liverpool. This is the most important topic we talked about during the meeting, and all those who had joined the "get-together" last week said they had all had fun :-) Please, see the PROGRAMME, linked to the front page in our Google Site, and DO ask any questions or queries you may have :-) We are getting closer to our departure day!!!!!

Sunday, 25 September 2011

Our next meeting??

Hi everybody.! How are you??

I'd like to known when will be our next meeting???
Ritaa... if you know, tell us please! =)


Saturday, 27 August 2011



Hi, dear all,

We had a fruitful meeting yesterday, with almost all travellers present, and we talked about several topics regarding our weekend trips.
We decided that:

** We´ll go to Bath on Sunday 8
** Well be doing the Liverpool trip on Jan 14-15
* Cambridge on Saturday 21 (with the school)
** Oxford On Sunday 22
* London on Saturday 28 (with the school)

Those trips marked ** will be made with Discovery Tours.

And as the "school" will still owe us ONE Saturday tour I´ll ask the authorities to take us on another tour to London on a weekday :-) (everything paid, of course)

As regards the musical there was no decision taken, since everybody needs to know at least a bit about the options to be able to decide. My suggestion is: go to Google and do a search to see what these plays are all about:

The Phantom of the Opera


Billy Elliot

(these are the three musicals offered by Discovery Tours HERE)

Once you know a bit about these musicals I'll post a survey for you to complete and we´ll decide for the one that has got most votes.

Some of the students will find out about places to have scarves made for all and will post their findings in this blog.

CONGRATS to MOST of you, who have successfully accomplished your task in our Google Site!!!!!


Friday, 26 August 2011


Hi everybody.!
As we talked in our meeting, below I give my facebook's nickname!
I hope that we could be in touch...

Bye.. =)

Noee Beltrame

Saturday, 13 August 2011


I´m happy to see that FOUR pages in our GOOGLE SITE have been wonderfully completed !!!! CONGRATS to the hard-working, responsible students who have already put up a lot of interesting information about London, Oxford, Salisbury and Liverpool...

You ROCK, girls and boys !!!! Smiley clapping hands

Go and see the pictures, read the useful data that´s up for everybody to enjoy!!

.... now waiting for more pages!!!


Monday, 8 August 2011


Our next get-together will be on Friday, August 26, at 6 pm in the same place, AssistCard office, San Martin and Cordoba, 2nd floor.

We look forward to seeing you ALL there, and don´t forget to get ready to say whether you agree or not with the excursions --mainly those who have NOT answered the form yet!!!!

See you there!

How about a Musical in London....?

Hi, dear kids!!

Would you like to see a musical in London? There are several possibilities, but my choice would be "Billy Elliot": go to THIS site to learn something about it. In the same site you'll find the group discount rates, that is, tickets are offered for 25 pounds.

If we go to the Discovery Tour page HERE we´ll see that for 45 pounds we could have a return travel (from Brighton to London and then back from London to Brighton) by train and guided transfer to the theatre.

Again I would need your decision, because all this should be done well in advance. So next time we meet I'd need your confirmation. You can start discussing these options now.

Stay tuned for the next piece of news about the date for our next meeting!!!!


Hi, dear all,

Yes, you can go and watch a football match while we are there, but REMEMBER I will need a PERMIT (written permission from your parents) to travel to another city, which may probably be London, ON YOUR OWN, as we have not included a football match in our original plan because not all the members of the group may be willing to watch one.

You may go to the DISCOVERY TOUR page HERE and choose a match --check dates, please!!, they might not be up yet!!-- , and then let me know about your decision, I may contact these people, as they are the ones that will take us on many tours on Sundays (very reliable people), and maybe we can get more "personal" assistance, and have everything arranged well in advance.

Anyway we need to CHECK and COMPARE PRICES, and see if what they offer is really convenient, since they will pick you up from the hotel, take you to the stadium by coach, and then back to the hotel.

I look forward to your decisions,


Friday, 5 August 2011


Hi people! I'll give you the link to Groupon, the page where we can find great offers to buy in Argentina and use in England. Select on the top of the page the city where you would like to buy something to use, but be careful with the expiry date.

Click HERE
Hope we could buy a lot!

Football matches!

I wanna go to see a football match. It could be in Liverpool or London.
would you like too?

PD: if somebody have information or a website about matches, please post it!

Mensaje para padres y chicos viajeros

Hola a todos:
Como varios de ustedes me pidieron que incluya el tour de Liverpool, y esta ciudad queda a 5 hs de viaje desde Brighton, he pedido cotización a la agencia con la que he viajado ya con los otros grupos, Discovery Tours (muy confiable y segura) y me han informado que el viaje ida y vuelta en colectivo (nos van a buscar al hotel y nos traen también), más una noche de estadía en un hostel, más una cena que se compone de tres platos, el tour de los Beatles y una visita guiada al estadio del Manchester United en la ciudad de Manchester, tiene un costo total de 135 libras = aprox a 220 dólares POR PERSONA.

Esto lo podremos hacer SOLAMENTE si todos estan de acuerdo, porque saldríamos un sábado y volveríamos el domingo por la noche.
Por favor, chicos, consulten esto con sus padres y respondan a este cuestionario para saber si hago la reserva o no:


Noe´s and Vicky´s Example !!!

CONGRATULATIONS to Noe and Vicky, who have already published a GREAT page for London, with information and photos in our Google Site.

Take a look !!!!!

Let's make something that represent us

Hi Guys, I was thinking, why not to do something that represent us while our staying in England. And the idea of a flag came to my mind!. Write a comment and tell me me what do you think about the idea of making a flag!



For those who did not manage to attend our July meeting, here goes a summary of what was discussed:

* most travellers agreed in that working in a wiki will help them all enjoy the places we will visit in England, so the wiki is already open! If you have not received an invitation to join it, please, let me know!!! It´s HERE.
ALL students will participate to get informed and to share the information. You'll find detailed instructions on the front page of the wiki (a Google Site)

* All other topics discussed will be dealt with again during our next meetings.

* Stay tuned for the August get-together, it will be announced in this blog

Have a great month, and start enjoying your trip to England by reading about the cities we will be visiting together!!!!
