Orientation Day 1: Travel to Ambleside and LfP Workshops

Despite a late night at the Old Meets New Pub Night, it was to be an early start for the first day of the Orientation Trip to Ambleside in the Lake District.

Week 52: Pre-Orientation Preparations

For much of the week, everything was focused on the upcoming Orientation weekend. For pretty much the entire week, I was constantly answering emails, text messages and Facebook messages, all to do with Orientation.

Day 5: Kayaking and Cèilidhs

Breakfast was again served at the hostel, my tray loaded with a confusing mixture of English breakfast and cereal with toast. Nonetheless, straight away afterwards we congregated at the front of the hostel for our next group activities. Whereas the previous day, both activities had taken place outside Ambleside requiring a short bus journey, my… Continue reading Day 5: Kayaking and Cèilidhs
