Andrew Gray – A Quest worth going on

So far my Quest experience has been unforgettable. From making new friends to new experiences Quest truly has taken me on a journey. When I first got here I was completely in the dark as to what Quest was truly like but after being thrown out into the bush for a couple of days in a survival situation I knew that Quest was gong to push me past my limits and help me walk away a new and better person.

Over the course of the first quarter I was constantly put in situations that were completely out of my comfort zone such as when we went to the Farvic gold mine to work along side real miners working seemingly endless hours in horrible conditions hundreds of meters underground. But once the tough mine work was finished quest became more of an adventure taking us through the Matopos on mountain bikes, Kariba to do some fishing and learn about anti poaching, and finally a big 5 game reserve to camp out in the bush and learn what it takes to manage a huge game park. On top of all the adventures quest has taken me on there is one thats just around the corner that I’m really looking forward to, the Malawi trip. During that trip we’ll use all the skills of construction we’ve learned at quest and using it in real life job experience for two of the three weeks. On week three we will be given the opportunity to get our Padi scuba licences or upgrade a level if you already have an open water licence. So you can say that I have yet to experience everything Quest has to offer but after what I have experienced so far I cannot wait to.
