International Award - Gold Practice - High Tatras 2018

17 May 2018

On 28th April to 1st May our group of 4 adventurous young ladies had a practise adventurous journey to the High Tatras. 84 kilometres throughout the largest mountain range in the country is by no means a small feat, especially when you consider that we did it all without the luxuries.
One of the most amazing things about the DofE experience was that it created and still creates an immensely strong bond between you and your friends - to the point where you all share the same smell with no problems whatsoever.

The journey was arduous, but it was also comprised of some fun and enduring memories. One particular high point was when we visited the mountain rescue service of High Tatras where we realized the length someone would go to save another.

We all feel so lucky to have been able to participate in this expedition; together we are such as strong team and that definitely contributed to the overall success of the journey. 
Our purpose for this journey was to observe and measure the pH of the glacial lakes in the Slovak Tatras. On paper this sounded like a great idea: we hypothesized that altitude, human development and the type of vegetation present would all impact the pH of these lakes. In reality, there was no difference between the 7 lakes proving that the protection of the national park pays off.
Very few 16 or 17 year olds can boast that they have walked the entire length of the Tatranska Magistrala, so this journey was also beneficial to our egos. 
It barely felt like we were on a hard and challenging journey: our atmosphere in the team was light and jovial and mostly we were just happy to be in the moment. Whether that was admiring the breathtaking views, laughing at our own mistakes bringing the so called "bujonky" or just enjoying the hiking. 
However we couldn't have done this "expledition" without the help and support of Miss Bea and our mountain guide Marcel Kubinsky. ( https://bit.ly/30sATtg ​​​​​​​) 

At the end, when we all piled into the bus with clean shirts Miss Bea kindly gave us, we all realized that we would do it again in a heartbeat; for this really inspired us in so many ways. We had learned it doesn't take a lot for a person to be happy.
