Connor Parsons - Aberdovey, Wales, 2013

My experience with Outward Bound was just amazing. I had two great instructors and a great team. Our team had highs and lows, but we all came through it. We stuck together and shared our problems to get through the week. I had new experiences and challenges, but to get me through these experiences and challenges was the motivation from my team and my instructors, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. The course showed to me how vital team work is to get through anything, even the easiest things in life can be made simpler by teamwork. I made new friends that i hope to continue speaking to for many years to come and i met two instructors that i will remember for the rest of my life as they showed me that life is about working together, trusting each other, supporting each other, and most of all just being there for each other. The Outward Bound Trust is the most life changing organisation that i have been to and will never forget what i learnt and what i can still learn from it.
