“My most memorable trip was a school rugby tour to South Africa in 1998. It was the first time that I’d visited and is a place I will never forget. I loved the people there: they were very passionate about their sports on the field but so friendly off the field. We were hosted by local families for some of our time and it was fantastic to experience their lifestyle. It is a beautiful country with plenty of activities to do. We went on Safari and deep sea fishing which was amazing.”
“One of the places that stood out for me was Durban. It is right on the coast with awesome restaurants. Going to watch the Super 14 game (as it was called at the time) was incredible.
My advice to anyone going on their first tour would be to take everything in and be willing to try things that you wouldn’t get to do back home.”
