July 16 – August 14, 2018 – “The London 15” – OBU Student Abroad in London, England
This summer, I had the privilege of spending a month in England with a group of 15 students from Oklahoma Baptist University. Dr. Lindsey Panxhi (an English faculty colleague) and myself, along with our respective spouses, conducted a faculty-led Study Abroad that spent four weeks on the ground in London teaching OBU courses to OBU students while being immersed in the culture and history of Great Britain. These are our stories!
Wednesday, August 15 – HOME!
Up early this morning to get ready. We had an adventure getting to Heathrow. We took the Tube to Heathrow Terminal 4 (an hour-long ride), where we had to outwait a fire alarm. Then we found out we were at the wrong terminal – that Icelandair flies out of Terminal 2. It took ½ and hour to catch an airport shuttle and walk to the right terminal and go through security. We made it, with not much time to spare. And then found out that our flight was delayed by ½ an hour! So we had time to grab lunch before heading to our gate.
