Edinburgh and the Highlands

An amazingly mind-blowing week is over but its impressions, memories and experiences gained will last! Classes 6A and 6B fully enjoyed this week of total immersion into the Scottish and English culture, where new people were met, new food was tried, unknown places were explored and scenic landscapes were discorvered.

The programme of the week was rich and the weather fantastic. We explored Edingburgh, felt like Princess Diana on the Royal Britannia, climbed Arthur’s Seat at sunset, hiked through the Highlands, fed Highland cows, listened to the tragic fate of the Mac Donald Clan, looked for Nessi, danced ceilidh, ate Haggis and even went swimming in the sea at Portobello Beach!

 

Scotland and Edinburgh

Students of 6A and 6B toghether with their teachers Prof. Weißensteiner and Prof. Voß-Peichl are packing their suitcases to set off for a new destination – Edinburgh / Scotland. We are all looking forward to a week full of lasting impressions and fun activities. The highlight will probably be our Highland Tour at the weekend. We should watch out for Nessie and make sure not to mix up Càite bheil an taigh beag? and A bheil thu ‚g iarraidh a dhanns?

“To be kind to all, to like many and love a few, to be needed and wanted by those we love, is certainly the nearest we can come to happiness” – Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots (1542 – 87)
