1. It was probably the furthest you'd stayed away from your family, and it felt like a pretty big deal.
2. So you made sure to pack your bag with plenty of snacks to eat past midnight.
3. And you packed a torch simply because you were told not to.
4. One of the first activities you took part in was knocking on the doors of everyone in your corridor and running away.
5. Hell, just running down the corridors for no reason was weirdly fun.
6. You felt like you were at a feast when you first approached the canteen and learnt you had a choice of food.
7. When you first saw the ski slope you were convinced you were going to die.
8. And if the ski slope didn't kill you, you were convinced that the Black Nun would.
9. Or the stupidly long trek to the beach.
10. You were devastated when you were only allowed two goes on the toboggan slope.
11. Especially considering you spent twice as long in the swimming pool.
12. You spent an unhealthy amount of time wondering what the teachers' accommodation looked like.
13. You were constantly being told to stop talking by a someone saying "un, dau, tri...shhhhhh" and doing a big circular motion with their hands.
14. But you continued to talk anyway, and in English not Welsh, because you were such a rebel.
15. No matter what time of the year you went, it would always rain heavily on one day of your visit.
16. And usually on the the day you went horse riding, which already felt dangerous enough without the added weather.
17. Before leaving you made sure to carve "The Black Nun was here" into the bottom of your bunk bed.
