Hello I am Gio Chicheanu and I am from Romania. Today I am going to talk about the most fun and attractive resort I have ever visited in my life.

Mamaia is a popular and modern resort in Romania, it is located north-east of Constanţa’s city centre. Mamaia is on the Black Sea. The beach season is best between June and September, when it can get as hot as 30 degrees Celsius! The water stays warm until mid autumn. It is a big attraction for teens and young adults because of its modern beaches and nightclubs, which are some of the best looking clubs in Europe. Hotels are from mid-end to exclusive 4 and 5 stars hotels. There are also camping sites in the north. 

I hope you will visit this wonderful resort one day!



International week on our blog

Hello Everybody,

As we are at an international school, over the next week or so the boys are going to give you an idea of where they come from and places they have been or would like to visit. Every day for the next 10 days, one of the boys will post a blog about a place in the world of their choosing and tell you a little about it.

To start the ball rolling, I am originally from a small town very near to Edinburgh in Scotland. Edinburgh is a beautiful city with a long and interesting history. I love to go back to Edinburgh and spend a day wandering around its many fascinating landmarks. It is especially enjoyable during August when the international arts festival attracts thousands of performers and visitors from all walks of life. I know I am biased, but I really think that Edinburgh is one of the greatest cities in the world and I would encourage anybody to pay it a visit – you won’t regret it!

Welcome back and Happy belated birthday!

We are back in a rather cold wet and miserable Switzerland to start the “big push” to the end of the school year. It’s hard to believe as it feels like only yesterday that we were starting the school year! The boys all have a lot of work ahead of them to make sure they get the best grades possible in the third marking period and the end of year exams, but I am sure we will find the time to have some fun as well!

While we were on holiday, Andrey and Gio sneakily managed to arrange their 16th birthdays – very good planning on their part! A very happy birthday to both of you!

Football and Party!

Today my friends and I had a football tournament and straight after that we had a party to which we invited many CDL teachers. In the tournament our boarding house did well, in the first match we lost 2-1, but we were leading for nearly the whole game because of my goal in the early minutes of first half. However in the second half we failed miserably and conceded two simple goals. After the hard game against 12th graders we played against another team. We beat them 4-1! Nearly everybody scored a goal. First of all Jia Hao scored a goal after my pass, then Mircea dribbled and went passed by everybody and then he scored, the third goal was scored by me after a slick pass from Mircea. The last goal was scored by Egor from a penalty kick.

After the game we went to our boarding house were the party already had begun without us. When we arrived there were around 10 to 12 teachers. When we had arrived nearly all the cupcakes and cookies were finished. All the teachers loved our boarding house. They said it has a pretty view. We had a good time playing mini football and showing our teachers around our rooms. This was a great afternoon. Lots of laughs and joy!
