Writing your Duke of Ed Adventurous Journey report is the easy part. You’re just writing about what you’ve done and what you know.

You’ve arrived home from your journey, dropped your pack on the floor and told Mum and Dad, “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done!” But after a shower, you say, “… you know what, it was actually a lot of fun too.” Next thing – write your report now while it’s fresh in your mind.
