On 25th February, Lorina and I finally went on our first international society excursion to St. Andrew. We had the best weather as usual *being sarcastic*. At 8.45am, we boarded the bus at King’s College. At 11am, we finally reached St. Andrews. Sightseeing started with the ruins of St. Andrews' castle. We couldn’t really enjoy it because it was really foggy and icy. In fact, the wind was so strong that it was quite impossible to take a decent photo . After spending an hour at the castle, we moved on to take a guided tour of Scotland’s second oldest golf course. They say that golf was invented there. The tour was interesting although we almost froze to death. Then, we went on to the ruins of the St. Andrews’ cathedral. It took Tina some convincing to get Lorina up the tower but she finally made it. Brrrrr it was sooooo cold up there. Luckily we had the chance to warm up at a restaurant afterwards. We found a very stylish and delicious Italian restaurant where we spent our two hour break. After this break, we went to “Scotland’s best kept secret” which is a nuclear bunker a few miles away from St. Andrews. (http://www.secretbunker.co.uk/) It was really interesting to see how the British government prepared in the 1950s for a nuclear war. Then it was time to go home. All in all, it was a very nice but also extremely cold day. We’re looking forward to the next trip!
