Comment........: Today I was contemplating getting back in to study of one of the 11 GCSE subjects I studied in senior school namely that of geography. How marvellously surprised I was to locate your web site and to be reminded of the attributes of the coursework. I just wanted to make that point clear keep up the good work and if parliament's education department don't fund you they should.

Just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable field work visit in St Pere de Ribes and Sitges. I now have a better understanding of rivers and coasts in really quite beautiful locations, especially the Sitges coast. The sun always shines in Barcelona, by the way. Even more fascinating was the fact that our night porter was called Manuel, from Barcelona.

I’m exhausted now ( most sleep I got was 7 ½ hrs on Wed night – more than most!) and was glad to arrive home this afternoon. However, the trip was brilliant! I really enjoyed all the trips but those to Barcelona and the Ebro Delta were by far the best. The paddy fields and Delta were features I’d never seen before and the flamingos were beautiful!  The Cathedral was really lovely and the La Rambala shops a good place to wander. -Though, Hannah and I did most of our shopping at the airport this morning! The Nou Camp was different but I still want to go to the Barcelona race circuit!!! –I can’t believe Rossi won again last Sun at the Catalunya Moto GP ( I even rang home wed to find that out as I couldn’t wait till today!) Well done in getting around Thursday’s problems with the Strike the ecosystems work was a good laugh! – also gave us a good bit of exercise! The hotel was a lovely little place and really friendly. Oh and I learnt quite a lot too!!! Thanks for everything.

Hi,  I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the help that we received while we were there in Barcelona. I know we were a bit of a loud bunch of people, so thanks for putting up with us for so long!

Comments: On behalf of everyone who came with me to Barcelona, I'd like to say thank you for a wonderful time. We enjoyed every minute of our time there and we appreciated the high quality of teaching that you provided for us. We all wish that we could come back next year! We're all hard at work on our coursework now, but it's not as fun as being there!!

We had a really good time while in Barcelona and enjoyed everything we did. Also the pictures of us are very interesting and thank you for putting them on the web site as this means everyone who didn't come are able to see what we got up to.

I've just got back from one of your field trips, and checked out the website, and I have to say that both are pretty good! The photos seem pretty good on your site, as is all the information. I
think you are making this independent study too easy for me! Thanks again and keep it up, cos its dead good, dead useful, and dead fun too!

Best wishes to Barca for a successful 2001/02 football season.
My home club is Hibernian in Edinburgh, but I have supported Barca from afar since we played you in 1961 in the Fair Cities Cup and hope to get to your home match against Valencia on 14th October as I will be visiting Barcelona again at that time.
