On the 27th of April 30 TY girlies headed off to Kippure Lodge (an adventure centre) for our Gaisce hike. I'm guessing most of you don't know what Gaisce is, so in Anglais it is called 'The President's Award'. For TY we took on a Skill, a Sport and got involved in the Community. I did my Flute, Camogie and got involved with Brownies (helping out with the super cute kids!) And then the last thing we had to do was a 25km hike, can you believe it!? We did it over two days and it was so exciting! Hiking is my new favourite thing ever!
We had the best little chats up and down the mountain, which was super steep sometimes! And honestly the best food ever.. yes, we did splurge.. After the long hike it was so great to come back to our OWN houses. And that's not an exaggeration - they were such nice houses & there was about 12 in each. Best night ever, with chatting, chatting and yes, more chatting! We also did high ropes, oh wow! Let's just say standing on a wobbly pole two stories high is scary.
I feel so accomplished with it !
