UCEAP Spring Trip 2019 through Somerset!

Posted by

IT’S SPRING Y’ALLLLL!! Sun is out and England is looking gorgeous. A few weeks ago, we rallied up 70 of our Scotland, England, and Ireland students for a breathtaking trip through the English countryside to some of the country’s most incredible cities and landmarks. All of our students received some UCEAP merch!!! AKA some UCEAP repine’ comfy beanies and pretty stickers. Along the way we also found some cute keepsakes with our ‘I’ve seen the stones’ Stonehenge button and our variety tea canisters! 

First Stop! BATH!!!! We had the amazing opportunity to view the Roman-built baths and learn all of the history behind the temple and the bath abbey built around the geothermic pools. Afterwards, we walked around the exquisite city of Bath and grabbed a few of their famous Cornish pasties!

Second Stop!!!!! Stonehenge! Here, we marvelled at the British cultural icon as well as taking the opportunity to have photoshoots around the prehistoric monument! Some of my FAV pictures were taken here!

Afterwards, we had a lovely dinner at Pizza Express and talked about our favourite parts of the day with our UCEAP fam!

On Day 2, we hit up STOP 3!!!! Glastonbury!!  Our tour guide gave us the run down of the city’s history and collapsing of time cubes! Nothing beats the rolling green hills and blue skies of Glastonbury!

Last Stop!!! Cheddar Gorge and Caves! Here we took a self-guided tour through caves and learned about their discovery! AND HOW THEY MADE CHEESE IN THERE!!!! We also had some time to take a walk through the picturesque town that looks like it belongs in a fairy tale!
