Semester in Scotland – Hitting the Fast Track

Everything has been moving so fast, it is already October! With two of our module classes ending, Julia and I are busy working to finish papers and readings. One paper down and another to go before the week is up. However, though we are disciplined in our studies we still can enjoy our new friends and environment, in Scotland.

Bannockburn

Memorial at the Battle of Bannockburn

Our weekly trips with Jimmy and Helen have recently taken place, allowing for Julia and myself to see more of Scotland. Last week, Jimmy and Helen took us to Bannockburn. Here, Julia and I got to go through a 3D tour involving the historical facts of the battle. It did not stop there, however, at the end of the tour, they divided us into two groups as they lead us into the battle room. Inside the battle room, I was honored to be crowned King of Scotland, for this virtual battle. My opponent was none other than the Queen of England, who just so happened to be Julia. My defeat, to Queen Julia in the Bannockburn battle simulation just proved the strategic mastery of Robert the Bruce.

Remains of Antonine Wall

After visiting the battlefield, Jimmy and Helen took us to a section of the Antonine Wall, the furthest North point of the Roman Empire. Unexpectedly, the ruins of this wall is not really anything to resemble what was a wall, however, it resembles a large ditch. There is believed to be a wooden fence at the top of the ditch.

With traveling and homework our schedules seem to be packed, however, we manage to always fit time into fellowship with our new friends in the congregation through gathering together, Kids Club, or CY. This past Friday, CY went to the go-kart track! That was a rush! Overall, I placed 7th out of 18, and Julia finished right behind me.

Until next time,
Jordan King
