This trip was a great trip that allowed me to experience a variety of Scotland. Since we stayed in Arran for nine days we got to enjoy a variety of activities that we typically wouldn’t get to do in St. Louis. Such as hiking to a huge waterfall, stopping for sheep in the road, being able to see wildlife in their natural habitat up close, seeing the gorgeous beaches, and enjoying the beautiful starry night sky.
The two cities also gave me quite an experience too. In Glasgow we attended the Pipe band championship where we got to see traditional dress, dance, music, and games of Scotland. Edinburgh we had the opportunity to explore the Fringe Festival and tour the castle of Edinburgh.
During the start of the class I verily knew three people in the class, but now I feel I just gained 6 great friends that have memorable memories of our adventure to Scotland. It was an amazing trip and I couldn’t ask for a better group to go with.
I would love to go back visit Scotland again in the future.
