Condorcet Trips

Trip to Scotland :
We made a trip to Scotland from monday, March 6th to Saturday, 11th.

Departure for adventure : The first day we took the bus around 9:30 a.m and we were all excited to do this trip. The sandwich was surprisingly tasty. We waited because of the identity check so we went up into the boat around 5:00 p.m. We danced a lot in the nichtclub, it was very funny. We were still a little shaken be the boat and some pupils were sick.
Immediately in the bath :
We had breakfast at 8:00 a.m and then we arrived in Newcastle. We took the bus again to go to Edinburgh. After the lunch we went to Murrayfield Stadium. It was interesting to visit a stadium from several points of view. At 7:00 p.m we met our family Margaret was very nice and we ate with her and her grandson Jack. We talked between girls in the bedroom and we slept around 11:30 p.m.
 History takes different forms :
In the morning we visited the castle of Edinburgh, it was interesting to see jails, royal rooms…
Nature or Culture ? :
After a few hours of bus we arrived to the Loch Lomond and we vogued on ot with a boat. It was wonderful and the nature is really beautiful. We ate and then we walked a little through the forest. In the afternoon we visited a distillery but it was not so good. The smell of alcohol was unpleasant and I didn't understand all the processus.
We were tired (like always !) and we returned to the family.
The adventure is not over ! :
We packed our bags and we left the fabulous family. We took the bus and it was the departure from Edinburgh. We stopped to see the Hadrian's Wall… in the mud ! And several people slipped like Dylan or Mr Tousart, it was so funny. We took the boat around 5:00 p.m. The sea was less agited than Monday but the nightclub was less good.
We ate chocolate, crisps, … It was really cool !
Finally… my bed ! :
After a good night we had breakfast at 8:45 a.m. We took bus many hours and we arrived on the parking at 3:30 p.m. It was a great week but I was very happy to see my family again !

The Loch Ness Monster :

The Loch Ness Monster or Nessie, is a Scottish myth situated in the South of Highlands. It is said that a monster has lived there for many centuries. It’s look like a dinausur or a sea serpent. The myth was recognized worldwide in 1933 but the first description appears on 6th century. A lot of person say they saw something in the Loch Ness.
But after many research, it’s not possible that a monster lives in the Loch Ness because he seems too big to rest in the lake, he couldn’t survive in the cold.
The myth is really important for the tourism in Scotland, many people come in the Loch Ness to check the myth.
