Today was a very relaxing day for the HUM 1915 class. The day consisted of cleaning, organizing, and packing. After this we celebrated our wonderful journey and newly found knowledge of the history, peoples, and institutions of the United Kingdom and Ireland. We were excited to celebrate our knowledge with a guest of honor. We had the opportunity to meet with Sue Gil, who has a vast knowledge of art and history. Sue has a degree in History as well as Biology. She has been a blue badge tour guide since 1976. The Blue Badge Tour Guides are the official tour guides of the United Kingdom, their blue badge represents their professionalism. Over dinner we discussed each monarch that every student studied and their impact on the history and development of the United Kingdom. We then compared our favorite visits on the trip. Some of these included Windsor Castle, Westminster Abbey, and Hampton Court Palace.
Special guest, Sue Gil the tour guide, joins the class to discuss all of the things we've learned
