The End of a Story

In England by Eller Student

I can’t believe the trip has already come to an end.  It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had and I made friends with will be with me forever.  The last few weeks in London were some of my favorite because we all took full advantage of the time we had left there.

I was able to get tickets to the Men’s Springboard Diving Final of the Olympics.  It was so incredible being in the aquatics center with everyone who was there to watch the event.  The whole stadium was completely filled will people from across the world and it made it that much more exciting.  I had been trying for so long to get tickets to get into the Olympic Park and I wasn’t having any luck getting the tickets.  I would stay on the website to get tickets for hours at a time and still was not able to get any tickets.  One of my family friends who is a ticket broker happened to be in London at the same time and was able to help me to get tickets.  He called me on my last Tuesday and told me that he had tickets for me.  Naturally, I was so excited immediately told him that I would love to that the tickets.  I was thrilled when I knew I was going to be able to see the Olympic Park and everything inside of it.  I went with one of my friends on the trip and we wandered throughout the whole park.  We even got to see the largest McDonald’s in the world, which was really cool to see.


It is so weird being back in the United States after spending so much time in London.  The first night I was time, I was watching TV with my family and we were watching the Olympics in London.  It was crazy seeing the city on TV knowing that I was no longer there anymore.  It was such a weird feeling knowing that I had just been in the exact spot two days before they were showing it, and then I was watching it from across the world.  Even though I had the most amazing summer of my life, it was definitely one of the best summers as well.  I made so many memories and friends that I will have for the rest of my life and I am so thankful that I was able to be a part of this amazing journey.
