The highlight of my school travels was a two week exchange to Germany. I remember my parents telling me, "it could be the only time you go abroad". 93 countries later, it still makes me chuckle. But my youngest brother Andy is putting my recent travels to shame. He may be based at a fairly ordinary secondary school (providing support to problem students) but that doesn't stop him bieng asked to accompany school trips around the world. An exchange to Germany at end of May (yes, they still happen), a visit to America the next week (including ending up in the back of a police car with two students searching for a suspect who had robbed them of their phones!) and then Spain two weeks after that! Alright for some, although our UK flights are just a fortnight away!
