Duke of Edinburgh Gold Expedition

September 14, 2016

A group of Paulinas completed their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award this summer. After some traumatic weather on their practice expedition in April (which featured a blizzard) they discovered a somewhat sunnier side of Wales during their assessed expedition. During five days of walking, they climbed up and fell down mountains, and sang our way through every Disney song ever made despite the heavy backpacks and the freeze-dried food. Taking each day and every accidental detour in their stride, they managed not to be discouraged by the army trainees who were running the route with ease.
