My three weeks at Gordonstoun were indescribable. I was interviewed for their website on the last day and they asked me to try and describe it in one word. Of all the words in my vocabulary, all I could think of was FUN. It's such a simple word but it describes so many emotions at one time.
I loved everything about Gordonstoun from the food, the sports, and even the long walk to Altyre every day. Though, what I can honestly say I will miss most of all, are the people. You get to know and bond closely with each camper there in those three weeks. They were the coolest people ever. I'm not an emotional guy and while everyone was in tears on the last day because they didn't want to leave, I was one trying to liven up everyone. However on August 5, 2013 when I stepped on the bus to go home I found a little tear roll down my face, because that's when it hit me that I would probably never see the people that I have built such a strong relationship & friendship with again. We had all exchanged numbers, Skype accounts, and made a group on What's App so we will always be in touch.
All in all I can say that the Gordonstoun experience was one of the best in my life and I loved every moment of it. Gordonstoun. Where all the people smile in the same language.
I received the opportunity to attend this international summer school thanks to the Annapolis Boys & Girls Scholarship Trust. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have met my international friends that I still keep in touch with. I learned a lot of things about people and their countries they come from that you can't read from a text book. I also had the chance to teach a lot of people new things based on my own experiences. It was an amazing learning adventure and I just want to give a big thanks to those who made it possible because without you there's no way I would have had this opportunity.
