Ticonderoga group takes tour to England, Scotland

TICONDEROGA Fourteen members of the Ticonderoga community recently traveled to London, England, and Edinburgh, Scotland. The group consisted on nine high school students and five adults. While in England the group visited The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Hampton Court, Picadilly Circus, ate lunch at the original Hard Rock Cafe, and contributed to Londons economy at Harrods and Covent Garden. The group traveled from England to Scotland on an overnight train. Most of the travelers had never been on a passenger train before. While in Scotland the group visited Edinburgh Castle, Sterling Castle, hiked up to the William Wallace Monument and visited a Scottish wool factory and sheep farm where kilts are made. Some daring travelers even tried haggis which is a traditional Scottish delicacy made from many, many parts of the sheep. The group leaders were Maria Bagneschi and Margie Tierney. The student travelers were Brianna Backus, Whitney Bush, Keegan Forgette, Courtney Keller, Allison Major, Kathryn Major, Alanna Swinton, Eain Tierney, Kacheena Trudeau and the adult travelers were Marleen Butler, Sarah Gauger and Betty Lou Messier. Our Ticonderoga group was paired with a fantastic group from the Cincinnati, Ohio, area and everyone got along very well which made the trip even more enjoyable, Bagneschi said.
