Each month we'll be taking a walk down memory lane, as we recite one of our essential tour experiences in our new 'Edwin Doran On Tour' blog series.

Digging deep into our tour archive which spans over 43 years of leading sports tours for thousands of schools across the globe, we'll be recounting some of the fondest memories from both students and teachers alike, and reliving those priceless moments.

On 22 July 2013, 46 hockey, netball and rugby players – cheered on by six enthusiastic teachers – left South Wales to begin a three-week sports and sightseeing adventure on the other side of the world.
