After our welcome session we are awake, revived and ready for the journey. We all check our provisions and our needs, toilets, water, are we warm enough or too hot? The older help the younger, then the much older ones check everybody and off we go!
We travel whichever way we feel best- by coach, bus, train, tube, boat or foot. We try to savour the journey because we are a team that is newly formed, with a shared mission. Anticipation builds and we are all excited!
We often meet experts at our destination who guide us all through our experience. Jerry helps us fix the corn to the hook when fishing, at Painshill, Carol lends us her net and key for pond dipping. Sometimes we ask some simple questions that help us so much. How to pick a raspberry or how we hold the bottle for a lamb. We interact with real people and their places. We experience.
In between our more planned activities we run up hills and sometimes roll down them too! We walk along fallen trunks holding an older hand. We rest, we laugh, we share our impression and we move again.
