In June this year, me and my friends Charlotte, Isy, Lydia, Rosie, Elisabeth and Megan went to the New Forest for our Duke of Edinburgh expedition. If you're not from the UK it's basically a scheme to get teenagers involved in the community and doing wholesome activities - you spend 6 months doing either voluntary work, practising a skill (mine was singing in a choir, for example) or taking part in sport and then three months doing the remaining options. You then train for and plan an expedition and go on it, with only maps and compasses for help. We did ours in the New Forest, and being the lazy peep I am, I've only just managed to get my pictures developed!
They turned out pretty nicely, so I thought I'd share them with you (but please excuse my fingers in so many of these, I don't know what happened!)

This was such an amazing weekend with amazing people and I miss it, with the exception of the exhaustion, sweatiness and squabbles over map readings haha:)
