56 weeks and 56 experiences later, my placement year with Experience Days has come to an end! What an incredible adventure it has been, having the opportunity to work as a marketing assistant in industry, taking part in unique experiences, and of course meeting my lovely office family.
Leaving early from Brighton, heading for True Grip located in Ashford, it was a relatively easy journey. Upon arrival, we followed instructions to reach the venue, as it located on a beautiful farm in the middle of the countryside.
As we woke to a beautiful sunny Sunday morning, we were extremely looking forward to our SUP/Surfing lesson with the wonderful Surf Steps. With a short 5-minute drive to the sea front, we soon saw the sandy beach and glistening blue sea.
Travelling by train from Bournemouth to Southampton, it was a short 30-minute journey, then a quick 10-minute walk to the Mercure Dolphin Hotel from the station. The hotel was beautiful, and the room hired for the event, was wonderfully presented.
