We are almost at the end of course now, and our presentations are really soon. Nerves are definitely setting in, but I hope our video represents at least part of the experience that I’ve had here!
Last week a few of us took a train to Edale and went for a hike in the Peak District. It was so beautiful, and at the top of the hill, you could imagine that you were in a Jane Austin novel (besides one or two power lines in the distance!).
At the start of this week we went to York for an afternoon. York is such a stunning place, with an incredible history. The Minster, the old city walls, the castle and the Viking museum – it felt really incredible to be in a city with such a rich history that is still visible today.
We’ve had a lot of time for our group work this week. Group work is always a difficult thing to do, but I feel my group has worked really well together under the circumstances – getting to know each other and putting together a presentation about a city we have only been in for two weeks. We are almost finished, and although we were all a bit worried for a while, I think it has come together really well.
