Berufliches Gymnasium on Tour
42 excited teenagers all together in one bus on their way to the airport sounds more exhausting than it actually was, even though nervousness, lost suitcases and security checks got in our way, with the teachers’ help, we have broken through all given obstacles. So yes, waking up at 2am to travel ten hours was totally worth it, once we arrived in Edinburgh. Impatient and eager, we got to explore the city on our own, after successfully climbing Calton Hill and withstanding the aggressive wind that came along with the height.
Before realizing it, the first few days spent exploring New and Old Town with its astonishing architecture, tiny cafés and various museums, we found ourselves on top of Arthur’s Seat savouring the good weather and impressive view.Whether you get easily scared or not – the ghost tour was the definite highlight of our trip. Not only was it easy to understand, interesting and nerve racking at the same time, but most importantly it was hilarious. On our last day, we got to see more of Scotland and visited Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and tried many new and delicious dishes at Europe’s oldest Pub.
All summed up, Edinburgh is definitely worth a visit, so if I have sparked your interest, do not hesitate to do so.
