Today, we lectured and then field tripped. The field trip was only supposed to take a half hour, but it ended up taking three. I had plans than didn’t happen!
The field trip was to the RAF Museum, so that was cool. There were a lot of planes.
I thought today was going to be a boring day. Towards the end, it did get pretty awful, but the actual field trip part was really enjoyable. We went to the Royal Artillery Museum. I didn’t know what to expect, but the guide was funny. We started with an hour lecture on WWI, which was fascinating because I’ve never really learnt about WWI. After that, a man in a WWII kit talked to us about a few of the weapons and showed us a heavy gun (a cannon.) We fired a few blanks at the building next door and then the guide showed us the world’s oldest cannons and some newer ones.
Guys, I apologize in advance for how incredibly long this post will be. It encompasses three days!
I spent the 26th, 27th, and the morning of the 28th in Germany with some old friends. Rachel was one of my small group leaders at church back like six years ago. She moved to Germany with her husband and now they have two super cute little girls.
Last week, I messaged her and an hour later, I was booked to go to Germany! Total spur of the moment thing, but in Europe, it’s easier to do that kind of stuff.
I ended up leaving the dorms about three hours before my flight. The tube was going to take a bit over an hour, so I wanted plenty of time. Due to a signal failure on literally the last stop before I would get there, the service shut down and I had to catch a train the rest of the way putting me around a half hour behind what I wanted to be.
