The Gorge de Tarn in the South of France – 2015 Summer Trip

Hello everyone, this is just a brief report about the summer trip, a full write-up will come soon! 11702693_10153016080557205_3144944661755484553_n

In the late hours of Saturday and the early hours of Sunday, seven of EUSS’s finest returned from the 2015 summer trip to the Gorge de Tarn in the South of France.

Despite Olly‘s best efforts in leaving his passport in Exeter the two cars arrived safe and sound in the beautiful village of Prades late on the 27th of June and embarked on two weeks of glorious fun.

Aided by the unfailingly magnificent weather, caves were caved, rivers were swum, songs were sung, vias were ferrata’d, rocks were jumped and occasionally (very occasionally) alcohol was drunk.

After our two awesome weeks were over and the mighty viking Dennis sent us on our way, the group began the mighty drive homewards, and despite the staff of Calais’s best efforts we all boarded the same ferry and made it home safely.

I hope I speak for all of us when I say that it was an incredible two weeks and an enormous amount of fun.

I’d also like to say thanks to Liana and Andrew Jenkins for organising the vast majority of the trip.

I think it was a perfect end to a great year for EUSS and although we must say a tearful goodbye to this year’s social sec, Debbie Shackleton and also our Publicity Officer Vivien Moseley, next year looks set to be even better in every way, and I look forward to seeing you all next year, as well as all our new signups.

So thank you everyone for an amazing first year and an excellent summer trip, see you in September!
