Virginia day 13 - 30th Apr 2018

Virginia day 13

Today was our last performance at the Tattoo. Although we are sad to be ending this amazing experience, we are all happy to be going back home.

It has been an amazing day, starting with a sleep in and walk along the beach, then our final performance at 2:30, ending the day with a team dinner and award ceremony!

Our final performance went by extremely fast, then it was time to say goodbye and leave the arena for the last time. We are all sad to say goodbye to the many new friends we have made from varying nationalities (such as korea, Italy, America.....) who we have shared this amazing opportunity with.

Now all that’s left is for us to pack our bag and prepare for the long journey home!

Over & out!!
