Favourite memory of the Award:
My favourite memory was when we met a stray dog in the mountains and named him Pascal. He followed us around for the entire day and we gave it some of our lunch as he accompanied us through our entire route,
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The weather was the biggest challenge, walking with our heavy packs in the humid mountains in heavy rain meant we were hot when beneath lots of trees but very cold when we reached the peak of the mountain. As well as that, everything got very wet.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
I still do golf every week even though I finished the physical activity section. I really enjoy it and sometimes join tournaments.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
We were hiking up the a mountain to get to a meadow and we took a shortcut which led us up the steepest trail, and the views were incredible. After that we took a picnic break up at the meadow and enjoyed the March sunshine.
