So for the last final time, we wake up in this wonderful city. Day 5!
After much hard work throughout our stay, we were treated to a visit to the Mercedes museum.
I’ll let the fabulously stylish, timeline-style museum tell you its own story! Enjoy the cars 🙂
It’s important to remember the old guys which took us around for so long before we had the very first car.
The unlimited supply of cool displays and of course, the authentic logo.
Okay I may go back on my word, I really don’t think just those pictures alone do that magnificent museum justice. Even for someone who isn’t that into cars, I still found that this was a good walk through history. You started your tour from the top of this building and moved your way down through all that’s been. Starting the journey right back to the times of horse and carriage and then all the way to an inside views of the modern race car’s highly complex engine.
Not only a fine history lesson, but also a great life lesson. The struggles that the company faced after WWII were very real and they dealt with the issues incredibly well.
All good things must come to an end, all aboard for back to Cardiff!
To round up this wonderfully eye-opening trip, I think it’s fair to say everyone had given their 100% effort throughout the trip, evident in the many sleepy heads on our journey back.
And there are a few people we must thank for this trip – our lovely youth workers and Michael for organising this trip, for keeping us fed and entertained, for showing us life in a different light in the 5 short days we spent together.
Thank you Lee, Lee and Dayle for being so patient, working with us and looking after each and every one of us so well, truly guys, thank you.
Perks of traveling at dusk, you always get the great sunset!
Now safe and sound, and back from London, there’s only one thing left to say…
