Tomorrow and Friday will largely be taken up by a school trip to the South Coast of England - Dorset to be precise. Its in aid of our Geography A Level, and I’m not looking forward to it on the most part.
I have already learned that the two minibuses our school own have broken down and are "out of action", but then they were barely in it when they worked. Because of this, I’m starting to wonder how exactly they will secure us transportation on such short notice.
However, if the trip does go ahead (which I hope it does seeing as I have to wake up at 5am) then there will be both good and bad points. On the positive side, I have over 9 hours of music on my MP3 player to keep me occupied on the way there and back, and the actually geography may prove to be interesting if there is a storm the night before. Its also useful and, so we are told, can add an extra grade's worth of knowledge to our final result.
But, and there is usually a “but”, there are problems. Firstly, our accommodation. I suppose beggars can't be choosers, but then I will probably be able to ask them when I get there - it is a Youth Hostel, after all. Secondly is the fact that we have to stay there, and I'm slightly worried that "toilet" wasn’t listed on the features section of the hostel's website...
We have also discovered that only one geography teacher can drive, and they don’t look the aggressive type, so it may take several hours. There's also a good chance that someone will be late and hold us up, so we may end up sitting on the M25 for an hour or so. Fun.
I’ll post how it was when I get back Friday night. Wish me luck.
