In December 1973, a comet flew across the night sky, capturing the imagination of the public at large.

LUUSAG in Luxemburg

Caroline Bryce (Leeds)

Wednesday 26th of August 2015

In August, five daring students from the Leeds University Scout and Guide society ventured to Luxembourg on a 10 day explorer belt. Our project was to look at how in a globalised world, how is Luxembourg keeping its national identity. This allowed us to travel across the borders into neighbouring France, Belgium and Germany to make a few comparisons. One underlying motivation for the trip was to promote adventure beyond Scouts and Explorer sections and that there are still things to achieve and adventures to undertake.
