On Wednesday 16th October before half term 14 girls visited Nottingham Climbing Centre. All the girls had a fantastic time and pushed themselves to get to the top, scaling the heights and difficult routes set by the instructors. It was fantastic to see the girls helping each other and showing support and leadership skills, especially as a few suffered from shaky legs! It will hopefully be an experience the girls will remember and will continue to pursue as new adventure climbers!
After an enjoyable evening bowling, everyone was ready for their final adventure. It may have taken 5 days but Ben finally made it to the bus on time, and not put off by the light drizzle we set off for downtown Reykjavik.
After visiting the largest church in the city the students had a little while to stock up on souvenirs, however several of them found the lure of a Subway too overwhelming to make it to the shops!
Day 4 - A disappointing night of Northern Lights hunting resulted in a few subdued people in the morning but after making sandwiches we were all on the bus and ready for the day ahead, apart from, of course, Ben!!! A few minutes, and several bangs on the door, later he arrived and we were off; Chris - our guide - keeping us entertained with his tales and knowledge along the way.
The first excitement of the day came from a most unusual source - a roadside rest area, which was built on top of a deep fissure (see-through glass floor and all) and housed an earthquake simulator that the vast majority of us went in.
