Dartmoor Adventures 6G
Beforehand none of us, the 6G, had any idea what to expect from this trip. If you want to know what we experienced in England, you should keep on reading and get the details.
Our school trip took place in late October and led us to the South-West of England, more precisely to Tavistock, Devon.
On Wednesday morning, the 17th of October 2018, we took a flight to London Heathrow. After five hours of riding on a bus we all felt relieved to arrive at our final destination: Moorland Hall.
During our visit we did a lot of different activities. From sport activities, like mountain biking through the Dartmoor or archery, to cultural activities like the visit to Buckland Abbey. A lot of interesting content was dealt with in the English classes and our skills of eloquence were required for a debate considering Brexit.
On the weekend we went on bigger excursions, e.g. visiting Looe and Plymouth, watching a Rugby game, and body boarding in Widemouth Bay – which was our personal favourite.
Some said that our stay in England may have been too good to be true. This might have been the case, because our journey home did not go as we planned. Our connecting flight was cancelled and we had to stay a night in Düsseldorf.
During these ten days, our class got to strengthen and improve its class community. We think everybody involved will say that we grew together as one.
We above all enjoyed the beautiful landscape, which we were surrounded by, the surprisingly tasty food and even the weather, which had mercy on us because there was not a single day of rain.
A big thank you to Prof. Roth and Prof. Klieber, our teachers, and the whole staff of Moorland Hall.
