Hello, my name is Mícheál Duffy, I’m 16 and I just did my Junior Cert. I went to Valencia last year with CSS and enjoyed it so much that I’ve returned this year. I’m part of an Irish group of students, there are 7 of us in total: Myself, Andrea, Leena, Conor, Iseult, Ione and Gemma (My sister and the leader of the group).
We all met at Dublin Airport for the first time and everyone was really excited to be going on the trip. We met with all of the others at an agreed meeting point and Gemma introduced herself to everyone’s parents before we headed off to check in our luggage. After going through security, we had plenty of time to relax and look around the shops.
When we got to Valencia we were met by Alba, Vero and Liam and they took us to our host families’ apartments/houses. I returned to the same family as last year. Pilar is my host mother and she treats me like her own son! It was really nice to see her and her family again after a year! It was after midnight by the time we got settled in so we were very tired and went straight to bed.
