Desde Inglaterra a Colombia - From England to Colombia!

From Nottingham to Medellin...

We set off at the crack of dawn and made our way to Heathrow Airport in London.  Here’s our airplane...
The first flight lasted for nine hours to Miami in the United States of America. We knew Spanish was spoken a lot in the states but were amazed that all the security guards and staff at the airport all spoke Spanish to us before English! 

Señora Cooke and Señorita Blakesley were starting to feel a bit pale and tired but Raquel and Raul  were wide awake...


We took our second flight and arrived  in Medellin at 8 o’clock at night – 2 o’clock in the morning UK time.




  1. Hola from 2B! Glad to see you are having a great time. We look forward to reading your blog every day. Can't wait for you to get back and tell us more. We miss you! From 2B x P.S. Ella would like to know what the school dinners are like and Joshua would like to know what the cars are like. Gracias!

  2. Hello 2B! We are so excited to see you all next week!That's great you have been enjoying the blog - we have loved sharing our experiences with everyone. Ella and Joshua- they are great questions! The children have a school shop and so they buy lots of snacks like empanadas (pastries filled with meat and salad), or buñuelo (deep fried pastry with melted cheese inside) and they also sell drinks, crisps and sweets. The children go home for lunch at the end of the school day. The children were very surprised we didn't have a school shop! Joshua - the cars are very similar to those in England but the taxis are bright yellow! We will make sure to post a photo for you.
