3d’s trip to England began early on Saturday morning, with everyone managing to get to school at four in the morning in time to hop on the coach to Schwechat. The long journey to Barnstaple was sweetened by a sight-seeing stop at Windsor Castle, a lovely place and highly recommended, even for those not planning on having a big wedding.
After a very long day the group finally arrived in Barnstaple, exhausted but still in high spirits.
These are some images of Sunday’s trip to Tintagel Castle (Cornwall). As you can see, the group will be returning with some knights among the ranks 😉. In Merlin’s cave everybody searched for a lucky white stone – some were successful. Others were “attacked” by the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, but luckily the sun helped to dry the wet trousers quickly.
Today there were lessons from 08:45h to 12:30h. After the lunch break there was a guided tour with the local “news crier” (see video 😉) in which we learnt a lot about the history of Barnstaple. This was followed by a quiz – the kids had to answer questions about Barnstaple (walking around in pairs, asking locals for information, searching for buildings, etc.).
