Conclusion


We think that the saying that goes When in Rome, do as the Romans do, it's true! We think that if you go to visit a country, you have to visit museums, etc. and also learn culture and the style of life that the people there do. To learn all this, you have to act like them. So, you can discover how their quotidian life is. The good point about this, is that if you do it you are going to have an amazing experience!

In this project, we have learned that going on a trip is not only taking a plane and a hotel. It's very complicated! We have also learned that working in groups is not difficult if you divide properly the work. We have really liked doing this project and we think that the good point about it is that we have done it when we have just finished the book "around the world in eighty days". We think that is a great idea.

This project was different than the others and we are proud to say that it was an experience!
