A GROUP of third year geography students from the University of Glasgow are currently in Majorca on a field trip and are interviewing members of the expatriate community to get an understanding of their sense of identity.

About 90 students are on the trip, including both social and physical geographers.
Last week, the students visited Valledemosa and Bunyola to investigate the physical strain tourism puts on physical resources.
The group have also spent time in Palmanova interviewing members of the British expat community. Yesterday two of the students Caroline Shields from Northamptonshire and Angela Jardine from Edinburgh visited the offices of the Bulletin in Palma as part of this research.

Jardine will travel to Tanzania later this year to carry out a field trip for her final dissertation.
