Congratulations to Cian O’hOgartaigh of the De La Salle Scout Group who successfully completed this year’s Venturer Explorer Belt that took place in the Benelux region from the 3rd to the 18th of July.

The basic elements of the Explorer Belt are a 10 day hike, covering 200 km, while living on a limited budget and completing a number of projects along the way. This year an additional 100kms could be covered using certified public transport.  The aim of the Explorer Belt is to get to know a different culture from your own, and the method is to meet people from the country concerned and learn about their way of life, their traditions and customs.
