TY Bonding Trip 17-18 Delphi
We arrived at Monasterevin train station for 8am on Monday morning. All of us had so many bags, we were all buzzing and excited. The train took 3 hours and we arrived at Delphi at 1pm. We had a brief talk when we got there and we then got our rooms, put our bags down and went to the hall for lunch. We had rolls and soup. Our first activity which was abseiling which involved climbing up onto a high wall and abseiling back down it. We finished up and went back for dinner which was chicken curry. After dinner we made a camp fire, sang songs and had a laugh. We went back for supper at 9 for doughnuts. We chilled out in the den for a bit and went up to our rooms.
The night guard woke us up every morning at 7:45am to be ready for breakfast at 8am. We went down and had toast, beans and sausages. We went zip lining until lunch time-this was great fun. For lunch we had meatballs and pasta. We got ready for water activities which was coasteering which is climbing up rocks and jumping into the sea. We went into a cave and the waves brought us through. This was one of my favourite activities. After dinner we went on an adventure walk which was 2 hours and 10 minutes. We had a lot of fun doing this and it flew by. Luckily it did not rain for any of this. We got back for supper and had cookies. We chilled out and went up to have showers.
The last day, we got up for our breakfast. We only had time for one activity because we were leaving at 1pm. We did high ropes. We climbed up onto a platform and had to jump off it. It was raining for this so we were all soaked. We had to be back for 11am. We didn’t get any lunch but we stopped into a shop and got food on the way back.
We all enjoyed Delphi and didn’t want to leave although the rules regarding mobile phones were a bit much!!
