Easter traditions in Spain

In Spain there are very special Easter traditions and they are different to ours. They haven’t got an Easter bunny or Easter eggs or anything like that. But in my opinion they have a very interesting day. It’s called “Ash Wednesday”. Ash Wednesday is the first day of the penitential season of Lent in Christian churches. Since the 4th century the Lent has lasted 40 days. But only Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are very strict fasting days. I think the Easter traditions in Spain are great.

On Monday, the 10th of June 2013 we went to Vienna. We went there by train. The journey took one and a half hour. As we arrived in Vienna, we went to our hostel. It wasn’t far from the train station. Our hostel was called Westend City Hostel. Near our accommodation there was a big shopping street. We visited the Austrian Parliament, the central cemetery, lots of museums, a blind-people organisation, many castles and the Prater (a fun park). In between we had time for shopping, eating and relaxing. We had much fun in this one week, but in the end we were happy to see our family again.

Favourite sport

My favourite sport is dancing. I love to dance, because it’s much fun to dance with all my friends. We have a nice dance coach. She’s only 19. We’re dancing very cool coreographies. I dacne once a week, every Monday. My mum has won a dance show on TV, two years ago and my grandmother is in a line-dance group. In my group there are all in my age. We practice one hour a week. I think it’s to less, because we have a dance fight soon. We are going to Krems, there is a big dance school and there we will be casted for the fight. But I also like football. Football is my second favourite sport. My favourite teams are ‘Red Bull Salzburg‘ (It’s a austrian football team and my dad is working for them.) and Real Madrid for sure ;). I’m looking forward to my dance fight.

Hello Marina and Rubén,
last week we were in Vienna. Our class went there by train on Monday and went home also by train on Friday. We stayed in a nice hostel next to the Mariahilfer street. Every day we went to an another place and saw lot of different sights. For example we saw the Parliament, I think it’s an amazing building. In Vienna its great, there are so many shops and you can have so much fun there. I want to go there again, because it was a wonderful time there with my class. I liked the theatres best about Vienna we were in a theatre and saw a musical it’s called “Naturally Blonde”, and it was a great show.

Yours, Denise
