Over the last weekend of the October half term holidays I went to Wales and completed an assessment to become a lowland leader walking guide. This took two days and one night. During the assessment I had to read maps and lead a group of walkers around the Welsh hills. We walked about 15 KM each day. It was very tiring. I also had to lead a group of walkers through a forest in darkness; it was very scary, but I was confident that I had the skills that I needed to get the group safely to our destination. This weekend I received the certificate proving that I passed the qualification, so now I can officially lead others on walks in Low land country.
