Favourite memory of the Award:
My favorite memory of the award has got to be the adventurous journey. The trip to the Namibian / South African border was amazing (although tiring - 14 hours in a bus!). The trip down the river in canoes was awesome, the camping spots had the most amazing views of the sunrise and sunset and the geology was beautiful and very interesting to learn about. Best trip ever!
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
This has also got to be the adventurous journey. Keeping the canoe from capsizing in the rapids, and from colliding with rocks was very challenging, but I was successful!

Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes, I have. I am still doing my physical recreation (karate), and my community service (serving my local church in the children's ministry department). For my adventurous journey, we went canoeing down the Orange River - the river border between South Africa and Namibia. It was loads of fun, and we camped out on the banks of the river each night. This photo is one of our camping spots on the Namibian side of the border.
